The Best Ways to Keep Your Skin Hydrated and Protected

Soft, hydrated skin is something we all covet. But, whether due to sensitivity, the natural aging process, or even environmental irritants, many people are left with dry, compromised skin. Thankfully, with a healthy lifestyle and the right skincare products, it’s possible to restore and maintain your skin’s protective barrier for a smooth, beautiful complexion. 

Read on for our top tips on how to keep your skin hydrated and protected. 

1. Choose Your Skincare Products Wisely. 

Daily moisturization is crucial to quench your skin and ward off sensitivity. But, especially for sensitive or aging skin, not just any product will do. Look for a product containing ceramides and vitamin E. 

Ceramides are lipids that rebuild the skin’s protective barrier. In our Galactic Glove serum, lipids create a hydrating seal over the skin, keeping it supple and moisturized in any environment. Lipids are a star ingredient for dry, mature, sun-damaged, or inflamed skin. 

Vitamin E is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It soothes and nourishes the skin for relief from swelling, redness, and irritation. 

2. Don’t Skimp on SPF. 

Unprotected UV ray exposure is a fast track to parched, damaged skin. So, sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is a non-negotiable part of any daily skincare regimen. Make sure to apply your SPF in the morning and, if you spend hours in the sun, reapply every two hours.

Even during the winter months or if you’re spending the day indoors, damaging UV rays can reach your skin. So, for hydrated, protected skin, make SPF a part of your daily routine, all year round. 

3. Sip on Water All Day Long. 

Hydrated skin starts with a hydrated body. Though many of us struggle to drink water throughout the day, it’s an essential practice for healthy skin. Try carrying a water bottle with you throughout the day, and drink at least a full glass of water with every meal. By making hydration a habit, you can protect and nourish your skin from the inside out. 

With a few hero products and a balanced lifestyle, hydrated, protected skin is right within your reach. Contact us today to learn more!
