Everyone is talking about the need to keep skin hydrated in order for it to keep looking healthy and young for longer. But what “hydration of the skin” really means?
We all know that water is essential for life and health of all living organisms. But how does this affect our skin? Our skin is our single largest organ. So, it is imperative that we keep it healthy and young. Hydration of the skin is the physical presence of water in the skin. Water is an essential element for the proper functioning of skin and, consequently, it plays a crucial role in maintaining skin’s freshness, health and beauty. In fact, good hydration is important for having and maintaining a soft and elastic skin and for wrinkles prevention.
Skin contains, approximately, 30% water, which donates to the skin its elasticity and plumpness. However, in cases of medical conditions and medications or if skin is exposed to dry air, hot water, or to other environmental elements or is harshly scrubbed with soap, then the skin will lose its elasticity and become tired, dry, flaky and eventually lined.
To restore and maintain a well hydrated skin, internal and external factors need to be taken into consideration. For example, increase water intake, particularly in individuals with low water intake, can improve skin’s thickness, density and, consequently, skin’s overall hydration. However, just increasing the water intake is not sufficient to prevent wrinkles or other signs of skin ageing. Together with adequate water intake, the use of natural topical emollients will improve skin barrier function and improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
