You may have heard of “skin hydration” a number of times but in today let’s have a look at why is it important to keep the skin hydrated. The skin, as many know, is the longest organ in a human being. It is made of millions upon millions of cells that are connected to one another, and like any cells in our bodies, these too thrive on water. A dehydrated cell, be it in any part of the body, would soon die. If it is in an internal organ, it will be discarded by the body and a new cell will take its place so as not to disturb the body’s normal functions in any way. However, our skin isn’t like most organs on our body, and a cell, once dead, will remain stuck to the surface until it is removed either by itself (which it eventually will if we live in a clean enough environment) or by us (by exfoliating, shaving, or simply by washing our face). However, we might not even realize that the skin is dead as it would be, to the naked eye, the exact same as normal skin. These dead cells can accumulate on the outermost layer of the skin, which can block all the pores and the oil glands making your skin less moisturized. Like any other organ, the cells in the skin are basically made of water. This water can dry up, leaving the skin older and giving you wrinkles in the process. This happens because water, apart from forming most of the space within our cells, is also the catalyst our cells need for most of their chemical reactions.
Since the life of today can drain anyone’s body of their nutrients, the skin is no different. There are a lot of nutritional requirements that your skin must meet in order to healthy and to curb breakouts. Some assume that the problem of acne is only limited to teens and young adults and it is therefore not an issue that they should bother addressing. However, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that acne can affect us for a long time and outbursts can happen any time even up to your mid to late 40’s. Therefore, it is important to take good care of your skin as it grows weaker as we age and living in a city only speeds up the aging process for our skin.
Water is essential to maintain the optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines. Water can actually act as a cheap (well, basically free) substitute for an expensive skincare routine.
Drinking water is also very helpful for your skin. The skin is the farthest organ from the stomach, however, so it takes water a long time to reach the skin, and in order to keep the skin constantly hydrated, one must keep on drinking water so the rest of the organs can be just as hydrated and pass on the excess water to the skin. Even though washing your skin regularly is a pretty good way of keeping your skin hydrated, the water rarely seeps into the cells themselves, and often when it does, it does so in a very limited area.
Another way of opening up your pores can be a warm shower. Warm showers can cause your skin to relax and the pores to open up for better oil production. Once the skin has been relaxed and rejuvenated by a warm shower, one can splash some cold water on top to help keep the skin from getting wrinkly and reducing stress. This will also tighten the pores in your skin and keep them from getting clogged. A convenient alternative to warm showers can also be a steam sauna, such as those used in most old bathhouses. In most early bathhouses, steam was used to open up ones pores and then, in the end, a dip in cold water was used to tighten the skin again. This also helps curb outbursts of acne and is a very effective tool for acne prevention.
