After all, our skin is the largest organ in our body and must be treated as a very important organ. In addition to our aesthetic need to keep her beautiful and radiant, to look youthful and healthy, we also need to take care of her internally consistently and seriously, keeping in mind that she should always be well hydrated.
At this time of the year, especially before the start of the summer months, we need to pay more attention to the health of our skin and take good care of it, providing it with the right weapons against the enemies that come: sun rays, drought, heat. , dehydration.
FIRST, WE DRINK WATER
Hydrating from the inside out is more effective than applying a moisturizer. We have to learn to drink 2-3 liters of water a day, depending on our weight, and drink even more during the summer months. Natural juices, teas, fruits and vegetables rich in hydrating ingredients are also essential, and it is best to avoid excessive consumption of coffee, soda and alcoholic drinks, as well as some "modern" energy drinks.
WE USE CREAMS RICH IN NATURAL INGREDIENTS
A daily protection cream should contain rich moisturizing ingredients. Not only women but also men should use it daily and reapply with moisturizer and sunscreen for the face regularly.
In some cases of special dryness, it is good to use a night cream as well, as well as other cosmetic recipes that focus on special situations. Mature skin, for example, needs an anti-aging treatment.
Skin with acne problems needs special care.
Dry or sensitive skins in particular should be strengthened with enriched formulas.
THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR NUTRITION
By consuming more natural and less processed foods and naturally by drinking juices and natural teas, we help maintain the overall balance in our body. However, foods such as cucumber, tomato, radish, bell pepper, cauliflower, spinach, and fruits such as watermelon contain beneficial moisturizing properties.
WE PAY A VISIT TO OUR DERMATOLOGIST
In order to choose the right moisturizing cosmetics for our skin, we must be well aware of the specifics of our skin. The most appropriate person to examine our skin and put us in one of the categories is our dermatologist, who we should visit at least once even without having to deal with a specific problem. In collaboration with him we will recognize the specific needs of our skin and we will be informed about the ideal treatments.
WE USE SUN CREAM DAILY, EVERY YEAR
It is important to note that in a country like Greece, where the sun shines most days of the year, sunlight is much more dangerous and sunscreen should be used all year round. Ideally, we should moisturize our skin with a daily protection cream that has a sunscreen in its composition.
WE ONLY TRUST COSMETICS OF NATURAL ORIGIN
When it comes to moisturizing our skin, we have to think of cosmetics of vegetable origin simply because chemical impurities cause dryness, allergies, dehydration and other unpredictable skin reactions.
WE GET TO KNOW SERUMS
Serums are the modern recipes with special healing properties that target the skin with special needs, but they are now quite commonly used in all cases. The serum has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin layers, especially after a good cleansing or scrub, and deeply moisturizes the skin.
There are different serums for different occasions
HYDRATION OF BODY AND FACE
It is normal to pay special attention to the face, but when it comes to hydration, body skin is also very important. Use a rich body cream or body butter to smooth out body skin. Use these especially after sunbathing, swimming in salt water or the pool.
So if we take the need for daily skin hydration seriously, we will see immediate results, both outwardly on the surface of our skin that will look clear and supple, and inwardly in our health and daily well-being.
