How to Create and Maintain Skin Hydration

Nutritional Support: Intentional intake of adequate water will support the body. Amounts should shift to reflect that physical exertion, temperature etc. Healthy fats and essential oils as well as whole foods which don’t spike blood sugars can have a positive impact on maintaining cellular hydration.

Aesthetic Intervention: Many anti-ageing aesthetic treatments are built around delivering and maintaining hydration within cells. These can serve to boost and enhance other efforts and help mitigate dehydration related ageing!

What Causes and Contributes to Dehydration

Dietary: A lack of adequate water intake is a key factor in dehydration. Nutritional imbalances and a diet lacking fresh whole foods in correct quantities also contributes to dehydration significantly.

Stressors: Stress comes from a wide variety of sources. Physical stress, emotional stress, mental stress and environmental stress all take a similar toll from a biological standpoint. This is due to the way which stress initiates the flight or fight response which puts into motion a full range of innate strategies. When Stress occurs for prolonged periods of time these natural responses can compound to create negative consequences.

*No Guilt!: Eliminating stress from one’s life is impossible and feeling guilty about stress is counterproductive. Accepting that stress is part of life is a critical component in forming creative and effective strategies for its management. These can take many forms, even in just the simple choice to keep a water bottle with you all day.

Hydration and Anti-ageing; What is the link?

Next to oxygen, water is the most crucial element required to sustain life.

Correct hydration levels contribute to healthy regulation of necessary biological functions. Conversely, dehydration impairs and degrades physiological function thus contributing to and accelerating the ageing process.

Hydration allows for the healthy absorption of vital nutrients and effective elimination of waste products. Dehydration can create imbalance. It can release histamine and increase stress hormones which in turn trigger inflammation. It can disturb pH levels, interfere with critical brain chemicals, disturb digestion, create skin rashes and more.
