Why hydrate your body?
Our body is exposed to many daily external aggressions: solar exposure to UV rays, friction of the skin on textiles, atmospheric pollution, winter temperatures, cleaning products that are too aggressive or unsuitable, stress, perfumes…
Beyond climatic, emotional or physical causes, there are also genetic origins, and some people are more predisposed than others to having the condition. dry or atopic skin.
These factors lead to the aging of the epidermis and harm its defense and regeneration capabilities.
skin and hydration
The skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. These layers are constantly renewed to guarantee the skin hydration and suppleness. Due to the external aggressions suffered and its natural aging, it is not always able to provide sufficient and rapid enough renewal, which in particular leads to the skin dryness.
By having a “body routine” adapted according to its skin type, we then give it back shine, suppleness and protection.
The consequences of poor hydration of the body
When skin is deficient in hydration, the skin barrier is weakened and the epidermis lipids are becoming rarer. The skin then has difficulty retain water, which leads to the phenomenon of dehydration.
Hydrating your body poorly or never doing so has consequences on the epidermis: premature aging, dry skin, uncomfortable tightness, flaking, tingling, cracking, etc. To avoid this, it is important to have appropriate procedures and cosmetic products. And, above all, “prevention is better than cure”, preventing the skin from becoming too dry before taking action.
The actions of hydration on the body
Cosmetics such as regenerating milks for the body stimulate skin repair by strengthening the skin barrier (also called “hydrolipid film”), forming a protective shield. It is recommended to apply daily moisturizing care, ideally after showering on dry skin: on the market, you can turn to a nourishing body lotion, shea balm, aloe-vera gel, sweet almond oil, coconut oil or even moisturizing cocoa butter. These natural products can help you nourish your skin as it deserves.
What routine to promote body hydration?
To properly hydrate the skin on your body and face, start by cleansing it with a shower gel. If you have dry skin, avoid soaps, which will tend to reinforce the drying phenomenon.
When your skin is completely clean, just after showering, apply your balm or regenerating body milk. In fact, the treatment penetrates better after the shower, when the epidermis is softened by the heat: this is when it is ready to receive fatty substances. Your skin does not need to be completely dried: the milk penetrates better when the skin is slightly moistened. Apply it daily, to moisturize your skin with accuracy. Don’t forget any part of the body: knees, feet and elbows should also benefit from your care!
For the face, opt for one soothing day cream which contains moisturizing active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, Allantoin or even squalane. These ingredients are powerful moisturizers, and are sure to take care of your skin day after day.
exfoliation of the skin helps rid the surface of the epidermis of dead cells, so that the treatment penetrates perfectly. THE normal skins will be able to practice this exfoliation once a week : pay particular attention to harder areas such as heels, elbows or knees. Be careful, however: if you have the very dry skin, just exfoliate it less often, about once a month.
