The Love Language of the Skin – Skin Hydration
Growing up, after a long bike ride in the neighborhood, I’d come home and open the fridge. I’d always go for the juice. Maybe I just loved the sweet taste, but I did think the water was boring. What kid doesn’t? As soon as I’d grab that juice, it seems some secret grown-up alarm would go off in my grandmother’s head, and she’d scream, “Water, not juice!!!” I now realize that pure water, along with electrolytes and vitamins, is what the body needs—without the sugary delivery. But try telling a kid that, right?
From one generation to another, we’ve passed down the importance of hydration. Juice has water in it… right? But, it isn’t in the same pure form when mixed with all the sugar. I know that matters, now. These days, I tell my kids how water is like medicine, helping the body to work at optimal levels. Let me back this up with some fancy scientific facts from the Journal of Biological Chemistry: our bodies can be up to 60% water, our brains and heart are made of 73% water, lungs 83%, muscle and kidneys 79%, bones 31% and our skin is made of 64% water (H.H. Mitchell)!
Drinking water is a simple but key habit that will help the body properly function and stay in a stable state of health. But what about your skin, specifically? That 64% needs a little nurturing, and I’m here to tell you how.
Have you ever heard of a HydraFacial? No? Here are five reasons you should know about all it:
Five Reasons to Love the HydraFacial
HydraFacials work to push much-needed hydrating agents, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E into your skin, helping it be as healthy as it can be while also promoting elasticity and firmness.
The HydraFacial treatment uses suction combined with a chemical exfoliant to clean, extract clogging agents, and hydrate your skin. This gentle suction works alongside the exfoliating and boosting agents, (glycolic and salicylic acids) to help clear out impurities, gently dislodge and remove dry, dead skin, reduce the buildup of dirt and oil in the pores, promote healthy skin growth, and improve the look and texture of your skin.
Let them grow!! The HydraFacial treatment will help new, healthy cells grow, and this is great news! New cell production has so many benefits, including skin texture improvement, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing breakouts, and also helping reduce hyperpigmentation, all while exfoliation prompts the body to produce new, healthy, more radiant skin. Water is medicine!
The HydraFacial treatment uses antioxidants, peptides, and other key ingredients like green tea extract, arnica, and red algae to help protect your skin from free radicals and other natural components that can damage your skin.
