Contrary to popular belief, you don’t arrive at hydration city by hopping on board the water train. Depending on what your current skin condition is, you need to make pitstops and change gears to arrive at your desired destination — that is hydration inside-out.
Before you dismiss it as laborious, though, here’s proof that it’s actually easy. You just need to make a few tweaks in your routine and trusty aqua-rich, moisture-giving products like the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ range of products.
Use a humidifier
More often than not, we find ourselves cooped up in airconditioned spaces — whether it’s for work or leisure. While the cold can be comfortable, especially when you live somewhere hot, it can also be too drying to the skin. The easiest way to remedy this is by using a humidifier.
At night, before going to bed, make sure you put on a hydrating serum like the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ Capsule in Serum, which instantly quenches dry skin*. It also helps repair the skin’s moisture barrier and protects the skin from getting dry. The capsules found inside the serum release antioxidants that help fortify the skin barrier and protect against recurring dryness. After that, turn on your humidifier and sleep in peace — and hydration.
Quit coffee and switch to tea
Some of us can’t function well without coffee as fuel. But did you know that drinking coffee too much can affect how your skin produces collagen? And that means dehydrated skin and more chances of getting wrinkles. So instead of gulping cups of coffee, go for relaxing, antioxidant-rich tea instead.
The hyaluronic acid-packed Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ Water Gel is great for a surge of hydration. It’s an oil-free moisturizer that helps leave the skin more supple and smooth.
Eat your water
There are a lot of excuses we can make for not being able to drink water. So the easiest way to still do it without having to lug a bottle around is to eat your water. How? Make sure you incorporate water-rich foods into your diet such as watermelon and celery.
Amp it up by treating your skin to a vitamin-rich hydrating serum like the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost™ Capsule In Serum, which is packed with vitamins E and B3.
