Care for your skin with a hydrating face spray
Hydration is a vital part of healthy skin. Without sufficient moisture, our skin cannot look its best or perform its important functions to keep our bodies healthy. But why is hydration so important to our skin, and what are the best ways of keeping it hydrated?
Reasons why skin hydration matters
- Hydrated skin is more flexible and therefore less prone to breakages, giving us better protection from UV rays and other potentially harmful environmental factors.
- Hydrating your skin maintains its natural pH levels, helping to prevent infections.
- Dehydrated skin becomes dry, which can lead it to become irritated and exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and acne.
- Hydrating your skin plumps it out and makes it less prone to line and wrinkles, making you look healthier and younger.
Ways of hydrating your skin
There are a number of lifestyle changes you can make in order to achieve better hydrated skin. It is recommended to drink up to two litres of water a day. Reducing smoking and alcohol will also help hydrate your skin, as will a healthy diet. However, you also need to look at making changes to your skincare routine, including reducing the heat of your water, and moisturising within three minutes of cleansing, while your skin is still slightly damp. It is also vital to cut out chemical based products and switch to more natural alternatives, particularly those that assist in replenishing your skin's natural components.
Silica for skin hydration
One natural component of the skin that is known to assist in increasing moisture is silica. This is a mineral known to assist in the production of collagen. As we get older, our silica levels decrease, allowing our skin to dehydrate more easily. This is why the Austrian skincare experts here at Sönd have developed our Hydrating Face Spray. Water based for a non-greasy feel, it contains an infusion of silica sourced from the mineral quartz that sprays straight onto the skin for an instant moisture boost. In addition, it preps the skin for smooth make-up application. In independent clinical trials, 100% of volunteers reported a positive on their skin's hydration after using the Hydrating Face Spray for 28 days.
In addition, we have developed a whole range of complementary skincare products containing silica to help keep your skin hydrated, youthful and radiant.
