Keep your shower time short

Long and hot showers are comforting and relaxing, we know but they steal the natural moisture from your skin, leaving it dry and chapped. Instead, take shorter showers of not more than 10 minutes and use cold or lukewarm water to keep the moisture in your skin intact.

Keep a face mist handy

A quick spritz of face mist on the go can help turn your dehydrated skin into fresh and glowing. It refreshes your tired and dull face and gives an instant dose of hydration. Keep a hydrating face mist close with you. You can easily make yourself  a DIY face mist by using equal quantities of rose water, aloe vera gel and lime juice.

Trust skin-loving drinks

An effortless way to hydrate your skin is to hydrate yourself. While drinking 1 litre of water daily can be an incredibly hard task for some, you can simply take your hydration a notch higher by indulging in thirst-wrenching drinks like lemon water, fruit juices, coconut water, detox water and more.
