Our skin needs to be hydrated to keep it soft and supple. If skin is dehydrated, it start shrivelling. This may not be evident to the naked eye immediately, but over a period of time, can speed up the aging process and result in fine lines and wrinkles. So, what can you do to ensure that your skin is properly hydrated and you have your own anti aging guard in place?
It is best to keep your skin hydrated at two levels, internally and externally. This is the best anti aging solution and will delay the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles.
Let us first talk about internal hydration. You need to drink at least 8 glasses of water to stay sufficiently hydrated. This is an anti aging secret that very few people will share with you. Drinking plenty of water ensures that your internal systems are well taken care of. It also helps in good digestion, circulation and weight management. We know that your skin reflects your state of health. Hence, a healthy and well hydrated body is a must have for a healthy and well hydrated skin.
Now, we will talk about external hydration. There are products like hylauronic acid that absorb water and make the skin plump immediately. However, often, this water absorption is way more than what the skin cells require and can damage the cell permanently. This can, in fact, speed up the aging process.
The best way to prevent loss of water from the skin is by using an oil based serum that forms a layer on the skin and locks in moisture. Besides locking in the moisture and acting as an effective moisturiser, such a serum also nourishes the skin with vitamin rich oil compounds.
However, one needs to take care that the oils used in the serum are cold pressed and organic so that they can nourish the skin. Petroleum and petroleum derivatives do not nourish the skin. Also, the oils used in the serum should not clog the pores and should allow the skin to breathe. This is critical as a serum with pore clogging oils can cause acne.
All Ethiko serums are made using non comedogenic oils that do not clog pores. All oils used in our serums are organic and cold pressed and free of any harmful chemical and petroleum derivatives.
