It’s pretty crystal clear that when it comes to our skin, water is the source of everything. It also appears to be, as research would have it, a solution to multiple skin issues. So it’s only natural that when your skin is thirsty, you give it extra hydration in the form of a water based cream or a moisturiser (the former hydrates dry skin whereas the latter works on oily skin without clogging the pores.) Since there are multiple factors that come into play when it comes to how much water is required for what kind of skin and what product works best for various skin issues, here is a detailed guide that can help…

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but a good moisturiser is a girl’s favourite confidante. A skin moisturiser that does your skin immense good and suits your skin type irrespective of the weather is a treasure! The ideal thing to do is to opt for a water-based moisturiser that is known to hydrate dry skin. Moreover, it also minimizes chances of a breakout in oily skin because unlike oil, water does not bind itself to skin and is less likely to get trapped inside pores. We’ve always sworn by the Lakmé Skin Gloss Gel Crème which can lend your skin nourishment and shine. Enriched with hydrating minerals, this skin gloss gel crème is a super bankable product for healthy, glowing, flawless skin.

Load up on hydrating foods

An easy way to keep your skin in good health is to up your intake of the right foods. Water based fruits like watermelons, muskmelons, grapes and kiwis are all a good way to keep your skin texture shiny and glossy. The high Vitamin C content also helps fight ageing as it stimulates the production of collagen—the protein responsible in keeping the skin soft and supple. So load up on these fruits and see your skin transform slowly but surely.

When we drink water, it goes through the intestines, gets absorbed into our bloodstream and is filtered by kidneys. This leads to hydration of our cells, which ultimately reflects on our skin in the form of baby soft skin. Of course, it goes without mentioning that a robust exercise routine that allows your skin a lot of perspiration and therefore, a lot of cleansing can do your skin a lot of good.

So opt for that water-based moisturiser, change your eating habits and gear up for well-hydrated skin.
