How Can I Keep My Skin Hydrated?

Moisturized skin is plumper, more radiant, more youthful. How can you keep it this way?

Drinking plenty of water—not counting coffee or soda—is obviously important to the proper function of your body, but it’s not enough to keep your skin moisturized. Katie Rodan, dermatologist and co-author of Write Your Skin a Prescription for Change, says that, “humans aren’t like plants. Our skin doesn’t perk up when we consume water.” 

Oily moisturizers sit on top of the skin, trapping the moisture already in your skin. They can be useful as a protectant. They are most beneficial after a shower or bath, applied over already-moist skin, because they don’t actually hydrate your skin. 

Well-moisturized skin doesn’t merely have more water, it also has more nutrients. A complex cocktail of essential fatty acids, hyaluronic acid, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals is abundant in moisturized skin, giving it firmness, elasticity and a fresh appearance. 

The difference between InfiniteAloe and other skin care is that it doesn’t sit on the surface of the skin—it quickly soaks in up to 7 layers deep, bringing the nutrients to where your skin needs them. It lasts all day and doesn’t wash off because it’s doing its work under the surface of your skin. 

Drinking plenty of water and eating fresh fruits and veggies are vital, but not enough to keep your skin fully nourished and hydrated.
