How to hydrate your skin from the Inside

Guest Writer Karen Lombardo

Look in the mirror. Go ahead and take a few minutes to examine the face that has brought you this far in life. It tells a story. Yes, it may appear slightly aged, and for so many of us, menopause has staked its claim. That does not mean we have to accept it gracefully. 

We must form an understanding and awareness that our bodies begin with our skin. Your skin is the body’s largest organ and is responsible for protecting the body from the elements, regulating our temperatures, and providing the enjoyment of sensation and feeling. Let’s feed our skin, and hydration is the simplest skin self-care.

Do I really need to hydrate?

Do I really need to hydrate?

All humans need to hydrate. The degree of hydration or rehydration depends on our age, lifestyle, and activity level. The effects of menopause on our skin coupled with a decrease of estrogen and progesterone expose women to early skin aging and physical challenges such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and let’s just leave it at, ‘challenges in the bedroom.’ 

We do not need to overthink the things needed to hydrate our bodies. We just need to create and commit to good habits. 

Four Simple Tips of Natural Ways to Skin Hydration 

Mindfulness and awareness go hand in hand with taking care of our bodies. So often, we look for quick rehydration after a good spin class or night of perhaps too much Prosecco with the girls. We ask ourselves, “How do I hydrate my body?” Let’s be mindful and begin with what we put  into our bodies. 

  1. What can I drink to hydrate my skin? Simple.  Drink Milk.In the early 1980s, a commercial campaign touted the benefits of milk, simply stating, “Milk. It does a body good.” Yes, milk is more hydrating than water, compounded by its other benefits of protein and calcium. We should be drinking it up! 
  2. Eat healthy fats such as salmon and avocado. These fats naturally add moisture to your skin.  Eating healthy
  3. Consume fruit and veggies with every meal. This is one of the easiest ways to see how to hydrate your body quickly.  Lettuce is over 90% water, and well, watermelon goes without saying. Fruits and vegetables deliver the necessary nutrients for healthy skin, bones, and the body.  Try swapping out your Bucatini for some Zoodles!
  4. Watch for hidden diuretics.We love our coffee, but sadly caffeine is a diuretic and will not help us hydrate our bodies. Try a morning super smoothie of fruits and veggies and limit that Cup of Joe to one glorious serving.

Get a good nights rest

This goes without saying, but please, get a good night's sleep and rest easy. Try using a humidifier to increase the humidity in your bedroom. Rinse your face with cool water when you wake up and enjoy the feeling of being refreshed. Anxiety brought on by a reduction of hormones through then various menopause stages and the added stress can lead to a stormy night’s sleep and can undo all the good things you did for your body while you were awake. 

Use the correct products for skin hydration

If you think you can super hydrate your body, think again. Let’s go back to the beginning and set a regimen for skin hydration from the inside by fueling our bodies using the quick tips we discussed. Once we have created a practice to deliver our skin and bodies to a hydrated state from the inside, it is time to make a skin care program for our menopause faces and bodies on the outside. 

Now let’s look in the mirror again and find the products and self-care habits to look our best.  Caire Beauty offers skincare products that work in conjunction with our efforts to feed our skin better.
