w&h's top tips to keep your skin hydrated

We all know that drinking enough water throughout the day is crucial, but here are some other clever ways to keep your skin hydrated throughout the year:

  1. Avoid consuming alcohol, coffee and smoking, all of which lead to skin dehydration, leaving you more prone to wrinkles.
  2. Avoid overexposure to the sun, extreme cold and windy conditions. Also, taking long, hot showers and baths can further dehydrate your skin.
  3. Over cleansing your skin can also contribute to dehydration. Be sure to use products which are recommended especially for your skin type and follow the instructions.
  4. Consider running a humidifier in your bedroom at night while you sleep to keep your skin hydrated, particularly in dry, winter months.
