Cosmetic Doctor will always reinforce two concepts, regardless of which treatments you’re having at the clinic.

Wear sunscreen, and drink lots of water!

As we age, the importance of staying hydrated cannot be understated; it plays a huge role in health and wellbeing, but is also vital in maintaining good skin.

Water itself doesn’t hydrate the skin from the inside; what it does is play a vital role in keeping the skin cells in peak condition, functioning properly.

Best Sources of Hydration

  • Still Water (not sparkling)
  • Herbal Teas
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Fruit juice – best combined with water to minimise natural sugars

Fruits and vegetables also contain phyto-nutrients, which give them their colour and taste, and are very good for your health. You’ll also benefit from anti-oxidants as well as replenishing your body’s hydration needs.

Biological Processes

Your skin is the largest organ of your body, so its appearance is a good reflection of your overall health. The benefits of sufficient hydration will be evident, and don’t forget you need water for all of the following biological processes to function smoothly:

  • Digestion.
  • Absorption.
  • Circulation.
  • Excretion.
  • Toxin removal.

A well-hydrated body is efficient at absorbing nutrients from food. Your liver and kidney function are improved; your lymph glands work well, and toxins are excreted from the body rapidly, so your skin is glowing and luminous.

It makes sense when you realise that all cells are comprised of about 60% water, so maintaining the correct concentration of fluids within the body allows all cells to function optimally.

How Do I know I’m getting Enough Water?
  • You’ll urinate often
  • Urine will be pale yellow-the darker it is; the more dehydrated you are
  • You will not feel thirsty.
  • You will have sufficient energy.
  • Your bowel function will be regular

Skin gets drier as we age; but we can help our body combat time by deliberately hydrating our systems from the inside-out, giving the skin everything it needs to function optimally, and stay as beautiful and healthy as possible.
