No matter which season or time it is, moisturising your skin is essential for a beautiful skin. Moisturizing keeps your skin hydrated. If your skin is not moisturised, it might lead to dry skin, itching and other skin problems. It’s not just meant to help you today—the benefits of moisturising your skin will be visible years in the future. Moisturizing should be an essential part of your daily routine just like eating and drinking water. You could even try making your own DIY beauty and skincare products, it’s easy and you know exactly what goes into them.
Here are few tips to keep your skin moisturised naturally:
1. Natural oils
Oils are a great way to combat skin issues. It is suitable for all the skin types. Natural oils like coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba oils help retain moisture. Jojoba oil is one of the most popular oils revered for its hydrating powers. The olive oil is filled with vitamins and antioxidants that do a body good, even when just applied to the skin’s surface. Massaging olive oil onto the skin helps to repair damage like scars and blemishes, thanks to its healthy dose of vitamin E.
Honey is considered one of the best natural moisturisers loaded with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties where it is most helpful for penetrating, long-lasting hydration. Before taking a bath or shower, rub honey all over your body and leave it on for five to 10 minutes. Repeat daily to enjoy well-moisturized skin.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a great anti- inflammatory and a great remedy for dry skin. Aloe moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. You can use a ready-made gel or take it directly from the aloe Vera plant to relieve skin discomfort and bring it back to a smooth texture.
If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Water is the best natural way to keep your skin hydrated. Drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day even if you don’t feel thirsty.
5. Moisturise your skin overnight
For a healthy skin, you need to take care of it 24/7 even during the night time. Dryer areas like hands, feet, elbows, and knees have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. Consider slathering on a deep moisturising balm at night, then wear cotton gloves and socks to seal in the moisture until morning.
