Keeping your skin soft and ageless means making sure it is well hydrated. Here are 5 tips to help you get that silky smooth skin you’ve been dreaming about.
#1 Use the Right Moisturizer
One great way to maintain soft and hydrated skin is to use a moisturizer that infuses moisture into your skin and helps to lock in your body’s natural hydration. You should also look for a moisturizer that matches your skin type (sensitive, oily, dry, etc.).
#2 Moisturize at the Right Time
Try to avoid hanging out in a hot shower for a long time as this can dry out your skin. Turn the water temp down to lukewarm for a final rinse off before you get out of the shower. Then, apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp.
#3 Drink More Water
You probably will not be surprised to find out that a great way to hydrate your skin is to drink more water. If you are unsure about whether you drink enough water daily, try tracking your drinking habits for a week. Remember, you should be drinking at least eight glasses of water per day and more if you live in a hot, dry climate or if you drink dehydrating beverages like alcoholic drinks, coffee, tea, or colas.
#4 Don’t Fight Humidity
We often focus so much on climate control for comfort that we suck all of the moisture out of our home (and therefore, our skin). Try leaving the windows open when you can. When you have to run the heat or air, a humidifier can help you to maintain a better climate for your skin in the house. The only exception would be if you have a health condition that does better in dry air, in which case, you’ll have to skip this step.
#5 Go for Facial, Masque, or Chemical Peel
