If you know anything about skin care, you know that hydration is the key to a beautiful complexion. Applying hydrating serums and moisturizers like our Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Retinol Moisturizer are great ways to topically hydrate your skin, but they’re not enough on their own. To truly hydrate your skin, you need to start from the inside and we’re here to tell you how you can do it.
Drink Lots of Water
Ask any celebrity what their secret to beautiful skin is and we guarantee you they’ll say to drink lots of water. We’ve said it countless times but it’s because it really is so important. Staying hydrated helps your skin stay moist, plump and glowing 24/7.
Up Your Vitamin C Intake
You may already know that applying Vitamin C topically is great for tightening and brightening skin, but it works wonders when consumed. One study found that higher vitamin C intakes were associated with a less wrinkled appearance, thus more hydrated skin
Get Your Greens
Green foods like cucumber and celery both contain silica, which boosts moisture and elasticity. Avocados are also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and a great source of biotin, making them great for preventing dry skin. Mix your greens into a smoothie or snack on them throughout the day for more hydrated and refreshed skin.
Eat More Chia Seeds
Like avocados, chia seeds are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which helps reduce water loss in skin cells. This softens the appearance of wrinkles and helps your skin to naturally regenerate. Indulge in some chia pudding or sprinkle a tablespoon of seeds into your daily smoothie!
