It’s almost summertime, so you know what that means? More fun in the sun! As you count down the days until you get to show off your summer body or attend different parties and events you have already RSVP’d for, there is one thing to always remember and that is to stay hydrated. Hydration is a vital component to being healthy, both internally and externally, with water making up about 60% of our body. In order to stay hydrated we need to consume almost 2 liters of water daily, especially during the warmer months to replenish the water we may lose from sweating and other daily activities. Drinking enough water helps regulate your body temperature for when it does get too hot outside, as well as delivering nutrients to your cells to prevent infections and to keep your organs functioning properly. The more hydrated you are on the inside, the more it shows on the outside.
Why hydration matters
Hydration improves the texture and appearance of your skin, helping it look and feel younger and smoother. Since our skin is the largest organ of our body it is instantly affected when you lack water in-take which over time it starts to show with dull, dry skin and blemishes, and can soon eventually lead to wrinkles. Once you start to see these signs appear it is your skin letting you know that it needs more water, so be sure to drink your H2O! Also, if you plan on being outside more in the sun this summer be mindful of the UV rays that damage the skin cells and decreases the water content of the skin (leaving you looking dehydrated). This is where you should incorporate products that will help retain the plumpness and elasticity (for that extra security) in your skin besides just drinking water.
Hydrated skin is happy skin
At Blass Beauty we know the importance of hydrating our skin. It is important to know the difference between hydrating your skin and moisturizing your skin, to know how to keep your skin hydrated. Hydrating your skin is when your skin is dehydrated and needs water and moisturizing your skin is sealing that water in with ingredients to build the protective barrier on your skin. This is why hydrating and moisturizing goes hand in hand to prevent water loss and improve the skin’s health and appearance.
To give your skin exactly what it skin needs we are here to provide you with our thirst-quenching products to maintain hydration in your skin.
