There are so many great reasons to drink water. It aids in digestion and weight loss, relieves fatigue, flushes toxins, gives you more energy, equips you for a better workout, and alleviates headaches. Maintaining a proper hydration level is vital for your overall health and wellbeing.
You would be surprised that maintaining a steady intake of water is not necessarily going to make your skin better. Water has to move through all of your organs before it arrives at your skin (your largest organ). So while it's important to drink water for your overall skin health, it's also important to apply water directly to the skin. This can be done with a moisturizer.
A moisturizer is best applied to skin that is still damp from a shower or after washing your face. This is when your skin is most porous, which allows for better absorption.
Products that contain hyaluronic acid, an ingredient found in our ultra-rich Extreme Recovery Cream, help infuse skin with continuous moisture while straightening the skin's natural hydro-lipid barrier. Hyaluronic acid is known to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, thus attracting water to the skin and holding it in there.
Our Sheer Renewal Cream contains a trademark active ingredient called Moist 24™. Moist 24™ is a hydroglycolic extract of the Imperata Cylindrica root, which provides the skin with considerable hydration and helps moisturize the epidermis for up to 24 hours. The oil-free formula is excellent for use in the morning when applied under makeup.
On the days when your skin needs an extra hydration boost, add a few drops of the Colleen Rothschild Face Oil No. 9 to your nightly routine. Whether your skin is oily, dry, sensitive, or some combination – the Face Oil is a major favorite among my friends and beauty experts.
And don’t forget the eyes! The skin around our eyes can sometimes appear crepey and dry. Many women start seeing signs of aging around the corners of their eyes first. Appropriate hydration can help prevent and lessen the appearance of those little crows feet. Our Complete Eye Cream strengthens the collagen-elastin matrix while diminishing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.
So while it's so important to drink water for vitality and good health, it's also important to remember to hydrate and fortify skin from the outside.
