How to Water Thirsty Skin

How to Water Thirsty Skin

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed your skin feels rough and tight? Or that it lacks its usual radiant glow?
Those are clear signs of dry, thirsty skin!
Dry skin can be pretty frustrating. Dehydrated skin is uncomfortable and flaky, and it can make your skin look tired and older.
If you have the kind of skin that looks and feels parched all day long, don't worry. Thirsty skin can be hydrated in many ways.

A holistic approach is the best way to hydrate thirsty skin. That means starting with healthy lifestyle choices and investing in a good skincare routine.
Your skin is constantly evolving — it's the body's largest organ, after all. When you're not feeling your best, and your dehydrated skin is clearly in need of some TLC, take active steps to hydrate your thirsty skin.

Reasons Your Skin is Thirsty

Every day you're exposed to harmful environmental factors such as pollution and UV rays that cause your skin to dry out. Stress can even trigger certain skin conditions, such as dry skin.
Other things that can dry the skin are fragrances such as perfume, excessive bathing or frequent swimming, and even certain weather conditions.
Low humidity, cool air, and dry winds are also dry skin culprits. We typically see dry skin in the winter when these factors play a role.

If you suffer from a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure, it can also cause dehydration of the body (including the face). This will make your face look older because wrinkles and fine lines appear faster on dry skin than on normal or oily ones.
All these factors can damage the skin, making it lose moisture and look dehydrated. If you can, try to manage your surroundings or take measures to protect your skin from drying.

Best Ways to Hydrate Your Skin

Skin that isn't hydrated enough looks dull and flaky. Regardless of age, keeping your skin healthy and hydrated is essential.
FRANZ Skincare is all about healing your skin from within. Here are some of our favorite ways to fix dehydrated skin. You can help your thirsty skin by following these steps!

Drink plenty of water

Water is the most critical nutrient for skin health. Maintaining proper fluid levels helps blood circulation deliver oxygen and transport nutrients through the body, aiding cellular growth and function.
It also cleanses the body of toxins by flushing them out through urination or sweat during exercise.
Water also helps prevent wrinkles, acne, and dark spots from forming on your face. To improve and hydrate your thirsty skin, start by drinking plenty of water throughout each day. Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. You can add cucumber slices or mint leaves to your water pitcher or add lemon or lime juice to taste.
You can also use an app if you have difficulty tracking how much water you drink. Water apps such as Aqualert, Water Reminder, and My Water are free to use and are available for download for iOS and Android users.

Eat hydrating foods

Consume foods that hydrate your skin. Eat foods high in water, such as fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, and soups.
You can add a few cups of herbal tea or fruit juice to increase your daily water intake. This is an easy way to get enough water in your diet.
However, try to cut back on coffee and alcoholic beverages. Too much caffeine and alcohol in your system can cause your skin to look dehydrated.

Opt for a cell-repairing toner

Good skincare helps keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. After cleansing your face, use a toner packed with ingredients to boost cellular growth and repair.
We recommend the Daily Repair Stem Cell Culture Medium Toner, which promotes collagen growth and hydrates your dry skin into its deepest layers.
It also aids in addressing various skin concerns, such as melanin suppression effect, skin elasticity, and skin barrier strength. Using this toner daily will bring you a balanced skin texture and deeply moisturized skin.

Use a face cream that works best to fix thirsty skin

Whether you have dry, normal, or oily skin, ignoring your thirsty skin might cause it to start drying up. It takes more to keep the skin hydrated than just cleansing and toning, so apply a moisturizing face cream to soothe and protect your skin barrier.
Our Rose Quartz Moisturizing Face Cream is packed with rosewater, rose flower oil, and Centella Asiatica extract to reduce signs of aging and bring out your skin's natural glow. Use it in the morning and night to reduce hyperpigmentation and wrinkles and protect yourself against environmental damage.

Get quality sleep

Good sleep is a significant component in treating and preventing dehydrated skin. When you sleep, your body repairs itself and produces collagen to maintain skin suppleness and elasticity.
More hours hitting the hay does wonders for your hormones, stress levels, and overall appearance. Try to keep a regular sleep schedule to maximize quality sleep, and even switch to silk or satin pillowcases to avert irritated skin.

Minimize sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily

While sunlight is a free resource for vitamin D, too much exposure can do more harm than good. UV rays are your skin's biggest enemy, causing dehydrated skin or, worse, skin cancer.
While curating a skincare routine for thirsty skin, include daytime skincare products with built-in SPF. Put on sunscreen daily, even indoors and regardless of the weather.
Skin damage from the sun is inevitable, so invest in products that aid your body's natural repair. We recommend the Stem Cell Culture Medium Ampoule to stimulate cell regeneration and activate collagen production to restore your skin's youthful glow.
