‘Tis the season to hydrate: The guide to getting the coveted ‘dewy glow’

A dull complexion that won’t go away even with highlighter and bright blush has a likely cause: dehydration. Skin that’s lacking moisture has exactly the opposite look of a lit-from-within glow. But there are simple ways to keep your complexion hydrated from the inside out so you can wake up with healthy, naturally glowy skin every day. Say hello to bright, luminous skin with these proven tips! 

1. Use a water-boosting moisturizer 

Slathering on a thick, super rich cream isn’t always the solution when your skin is in dire need of moisture. What it does require: water-attracting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, a superstar hydrator that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. You may also use a lightweight gel- cream that can add and lock in moisture at the same time. 

2. Drink water at least 8 times a day 

You already know this one: Drinking water is beneficial for our entire body and as our largest organ, skin is obviously included in this. Water is essential for cellular function and processes, and it also helps our collagen to stay plump, keeping the fine lines at bay. Experts recommend drinking about eight glasses (or 2 litres) a day to keep your body healthy and happy. This, in turn hydrates the body overall, which will help the skin to glow from within. If you aren’t a fan of plain ol’ H2O, we recommend adding cucumbers for a fresh taste and a dose of skin-friendly antioxidants. 

3. Eat water-rich foods 

Foods that contain mostly water can be just as hydrating for your body (and skin) as drinking water. Try to eat water-dense fruits and veggies such as berries, watermelon, plums, peaches, cucumbers, celery, bell peppers, and lettuce throughout the day. 

4. Get a deeper clean 

By including an effective cleansing product like The Skin Bureau’s newest Facial Toner and Facial Foam to your skin care routine, you can assure that other skin care products and treatments can better penetrate beneath the skin surface so they hydrate at a deeper level. 

5. Exfoliate regularly 

You might be stocking up on the latest and greatest hydrating regimen, but your skin may not be absorbing the hydrators you’re applying. Exfoliation is key in removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of skin, which can prevent skin-care ingredients from doing their job. One of our highly- raved products, the Social Stunner Revitalizing Set, is a must if you want to boost your skin’s water content. 

6. Refresh with a facial mist 

As important as it is to choose a moisturizer with all the right formulation, it is also crucial to use a facial mist that is packed with powerful yet gentle ingredients. This is what The Skin Bureau Facial Mist is all about—gently hydrating, soothing, and moisturizing the face without the harsh side effects!
