THE INSIDE/OUTSIDE HYDRATION METHOD.

The obvious way to get rid of dry skin externally is to moisturize regularly. If you can remember to slather on the moisturizer right after you get out of the tub, even better. Other steps you can take to soothe your dry skin include taking shorter baths and using warm water instead of hot to shower or bathe. However, what you put into your body can help get rid of dry skin and prevent new dry patches from forming. Since you need to eat and drink anyway, you might as well get the most from your daily diet, and that means using your intake to output healthy skin. What you eat and drink can not only boost your energy and your immune system, it can also help keep your skin hydrated.

LIFESTYLE:

 

GUIDA ALLA DISIDRATAZIONE INVERNALE

 

1. DON’T STAY OUT IN THE COLD.

If the weather outside is truly extreme, make sure you limit how much time you are spending outdoors.
This is probably very easy to do, given the discomforts of being in extremely cold weather. If you must venture out for an extended period of time, moisturize before you go, cover up in a way that is comfortable to you, and moisturize once you are indoors once again.

2. WATCH OUT YOUR HOUSE INTERNAL TEMP.

Indoor heating is also very drying, and can zap moisture from your skin. Your indoor heating system may feel so good in contrast to the outside cold, but make sure you pay attention to what your skin is trying to tell you.

4. AVOID CAFFEINE & ALCOHOL.

Caffeine and alcohol are two of the worst offenders for dehydrated skin. Both substances are diuretics that compromise your skin’s health by depleting its water content. And, alcohol doubles down by hindering the production of the hormone vasopressin which is essential for rehydration. If you can’t imagine getting through the day without your morning latte, fear not: The general consensus is that one to two cups of coffee per day and a glass of alcohol in the evening is a-okay.

5. DRINK MORE WATER.

Due to the cold temperatures in the fall and winter months we tend to opt for warm drinks instead of a glass of water. Water is so important to keep you hydrated from the inside out. Next time you are in the mood for a warm drink, try warm water with lemon. Soothing and hydrating!

6. WATCH OUT YOUR HOUSE ENVIRONMENT.

Heating your home in the colder months can dry out the air. Consider purchasing a humidifier for your home to put moisture back into the air. This will prevent your skin from drying out. Moreover, try to keep the in/out temperature contrast low. Try to survive in a hoodie and socks, not necessarily a t-shirt and shorts

FOCUS: FOOD THAT ACT AS MOISTURIZERS.

If you want to do everything you can to moisturize your skin, don’t stop at applying moisturizer and drinking a lot of water. To get the most out of your daily meals, try including the following items in your diet:

Omega-3s – Your skin has a natural barrier to help retain moisture, and that barrier contains omega-3 fatty acids. Try adding flax seed, salmon and walnuts to your diet to boost your omega-3 intake and moisturize your skin . Some research suggests that foods that have vitamin E in addition to omega-3s, such as nuts and whole grains, provide an extra skin booster.

Spinach – In addition to being chock full of vitamins, such as skin-strengthening vitamin A, spinach has plant compounds that — according to some research — help to keep your skin healthy
Berries –It turns out that berries aren’t just tasty and fun to eat; they’re also really good for healing your skin.

Berries – not only contain juice to help you hydrate, but they’ve also got antioxidants and vitamin C that protect your skin. The antioxidants and other chemicals in the berries work to help your skin cells stave off damage

1. WASH WITH A GENTLE CLEANSER & LUKEWARM WATER.

The best way to cleanse dehydrated skin is with a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water. Choose cleansers that are free of harsh chemical additives and artificial fragrances that can strip the skin of beneficial moisture and aggravate sensitivities. On Miloon.eu, we choose only the best organic ingredients and keep our skin care free of harmful chemicals like added parabens, petrolatum, mineral oils, propylene glycol and sodium lauryl sulfate. To cleanse dehydrated skin, we recommend using a product like Wildflower Cleansing Balm or Stone Crop Cleansing Oil which gently melt away impurities, hydrate skin and leave no residue.

2. USE A HYALURONIC ACID SERUM.

Hyaluronic acid is extremely effective in replenishing dehydrated skin. As a humectant, this miracle ingredient helps bind and retain moisture, keeping skin soft and pillowy. According to ELLE, hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold up to six liters of water and “works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much of it as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.” An example is Leegheham Grow Hyal B5 Ampoule is one of the best K-Beauty ampoules from one of the best K-Beauty brands. It contains five different types of Hyaluronic Acid help lock in moisture and deeply hydrate parched, dehydrated skin. A true must have for winter months, when weather conditions kills our glow: this all-natural amazing ampoule is committed to bring a smile back on your flat and dull complexion.

3. SKIP HARSH FACE SCRUBS.

Exfoliation is a no-fail way to brighten a dull, dehydrated complexion. Healthy skin takes 25 days to renew itself naturally, and dehydrated skin takes even longer. Proper exfoliation accelerates skin cell turnover by sloughing dead cells from the surface to reveal the new, healthy cells underneath. For dehydrated skin, we recommend avoiding gritty scrubs that could irritate the skin. For example: Klairs sugar facial polish uses peeling to remove all imperfections. Black sugar contained in the peeling helps in the effective removal of dead skin, easily exfoliates dry skin and gives a smooth appearance of the skin, has anti-wrinkle, anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties.

On the other had, When you’re dealing with inflamed acne or highly sensitive skin, toning and exfoliating might be the last thing you want to do, but these pads may change your mind. They come soaked in an essence formulated with Centella asiatica extract, a popular K-beauty ingredient, to soothe and smooth skin without causing irritation. The concentrated formula also reduces redness and inflammation and helps promote collagen production, giving you a stronger skin barrier and a more even complexion.

The perfect face wash for those with oily skin.
Frudia Green Grape Pore Control Scrub Cleansing Foam reduces pore appearance and controls excess oils in a natural way. It tightens pores and reduces sebum. It balances and hydrating. Features improved skin texture and shine control and is free of parabens or alcohol. This refreshing cleanser uses the power of tannin-rich green grapes to naturally clean pores.
More than a face wash, Frudia Green Grape Pore Control Scrub Cleansing Foam gently exfoliates the skin and prevents the accumulation of excess sebum, meaning less breakouts and blackheads for you.

4. SWAP SEASON MOISTURIZER.

Most of us will need something a bit more nourishing once the cold, dry weather rolls in. If you are a summertime lover of gels, try reaching for a cream. If you stick to just a serum in the summertime, try layering a moisturizer over top. Every person will be different, and every individual will have their preferences.
So find a combination that works for you, and roll with it.

Some Notable examples are : May Coop Raw Concentra for Day, Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Cream, Time Revolution Immortal Youth, Leegeehaam Vita Propolis Cream and Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream.

5. TARGET TREATS AT NIGHT.

Having specific products for daytime and specific products for night time is ultra effective. Indeed, the initial investment in AM and PM specific products can seem daunting, but it is really worth it in the end. First: you are treating your skin to extra moisture and nutrients at night, which happens to be when your skin does its best healing.
Second: the cost over time will likely not be nearly as much as you think. Yes, you are purchasing two different sets of product, but you are also using those sets only once a day, so it actually stretches out quite well!
A friendly note: a product does not need to be specified for “night time” use to be used at night.
If your skin is already dry to the point of discomfort, be careful with what you apply to your skin.
Discomfort is usually the result of irritation and/or broken skin, and many skin care ingredients will react negatively on your skin, only making matters worse.

6. PROTECT YOUR SKIN’S OUTER LAYER.

The jury’s out on whether drinking eight glasses of water a day will drastically improve your skin’s hydration. Drinking a lot is important, yet the key is preventing water from leaving your skin by keeping its moisture barrier intact. One of the best ways to achieve this is layer on the moisture, the all Korean technique to seal all the nutrients within the skin. Next time we will go deep on this. So Stick around ;D
