The key to healthy-looking, beautiful skin

Above all, having beautiful skin means having healthy-looking and feeling skin.

40% of women think drinking water is the first beauty step required to have hydrated skin, yet 85% underestimate the importance of nutrition*. Indeed, taking care of your skin also means taking care of yourself, so the skin can reveal all its inner beauty. Drinking water, having a healthy diet and exercising are simple steps to having healthy-looking, glowing skin.

However, the secret to beautiful, healthy-looking skin is also to use gentle and suitable skin care products.

Beauty & skin care steps to adopt for healthy-looking, beautiful skin:

We choose to protect our skin from the sun, because we want to protect it from harmful rays,. It is about acting at a given moment, to prevent the effects of future skin sun damage. Dehydrated skin needs similar care.

Taking care of your dehydrated skin today means repelling the consequences of a busy lifestyle and of external aggressions like pollution, to help slow down the appearance of the first lines and wrinkles.

Dehydrated skin is thirsty skin that needs continuous hydration, throughout the day. To fight dehydration, it is recommended to use thirst-quenching creams, which contain hyaluronic acid, and other hydrating agents. Hyaluronic acid is an agent able to absorb up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, and because of that it helps maintain the skin barrier’s integrity, for long-lasting hydration. As a result, the skin is smoother, supple and visibly bouncier. To boost skin’s hydration, it is also strongly recommended to adopt a suitable daily beauty & skin care routine. Asian traditions are now being revived with the skin care routine layering trend (the art of superimposing many steps to your beauty routine), a meticulous beauty ritual essential to healthy-feeling skin, especially for dehydrated skin.

Discover the 3 simple steps to take care of your dehydrated skin:

1. Remove Make-up:

As a first step, it is important to efficiently remove make-up from your skin. Always choose gentle and hydrating products, suitable for your skin type for a non-abrasive gentle wash. If you prefer water textures, you can choose a micellar water that is non aggressive to the skin and is suitable for your skin type. Micellar water is ideal for use in the morning. It is important to emphasise on this point: applying make-up remover is an essential daily step, even if you do not wear make-up. It actually allows you to eliminate impurities from your skin.

2. Face Cleansing:

As the second step of your beauty & skin care routine, face cleansing is a vital step to clear skin from everything that makes it look dull and to remove impurities, traces of make-up and excess sebum. Choose a gentle and hydrating cleanser that does not leave residue on the skin, for freshly cleansed and touchably supple skin.

3. Hydrate and Moisturize Skin

Finally, it is important to highlight that hydration, and moisturizer is key to achieving healthy-looking and radiant skin. Remember to hydrate your skin every day, by choosing non-greasy moisturizers suitable for your skin type. Opt for gel-textured moisturizers for a lightweight sensation. Apply twice a day on your face and neck after cleansing, using circular movements for better penetration.
