Staying hydrated is always important, but it’s especially vital after a spa treatment. Read on to discover the aesthetic benefits of drinking water for your skin and hair, and how to make sure your skin stays properly hydrated.
Staying hydrated keeps all of your body’s functions running smoothly, but it’s especially important for your biggest organ—your skin. After an aesthetic treatment, you’ll want to make sure you’re drinking enough water as part of your aftercare. This will ensure your skin’s moisture barrier is able to carry out its innate function, which is to act as a natural barrier to any external and harsh elements. Protected skin is healthy skin, whereas dehydrated skin is more vulnerable to environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution. Therefore, drinking water after a spa treatment will help to shorten your recovery time and seal in your results.
Dry skin is usually harmless, but it’s not very comfortable. You may notice the dryness is temporary, in which case seasonal or lifestyle factors are probably to blame. For others, dry skin may be a lifelong condition. The most common contributors to skin that feels dehydrated are:
Since water helps to keep skin healthy and hydrated, it follows that not drinking enough can lead to dehydrated skin and hair. Signs of dehydrated skin and hair typically manifest as a feeling of dryness, scaliness, tightness, or in the case of hair, brittle strands that break easily. It can also show up as a loss of plumpness in the face, making fine lines and wrinkles more visible, as well as dark undereye circles and areas of uneven texture.
Luckily, staving off the effects of dehydration is fairly simple. The first step is to drink enough water. How much is enough? Since that bit of common wisdom about drinking eight glasses of water a day has been debunked, drinking enough water simply means drinking whenever you are thirsty. Drinking water consistently throughout the day is enough to maintain a healthy level of hydration in your skin. Additionally, you should follow a daily skin care routine that treats, protects, and moisturizes your skin. Lastly, periodically exfoliating your skin can actually help it stay healthy and hydrated. Your moisturizers and other topical products absorb better when they don’t have to penetrate through a layer of dead skin cells.
Skin cleansing is essential for maintaining healthy, rejuvenated skin, but washing alone may not be enough to remove the buildup of dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and other debris that accumulates on the skin every day. For a deeper clean, you need to reach the pores, which is where the buildup really occurs. Enter our Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments.
