Skin Care Myths: What Really Works

May 10, 2017

skin-care-myths

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of beauty companies out there trying to sell you products that will give you great skin in a day. Do any of them work? Possibly, in the long-term, or longer short-term. But, there isn’t any product that will turn tired and weary skin into perfect skin overnight. Just like it took time for skin to get to an aged or damaged condition, it will take some time to repair. There are some healthy products and habits you can turn to, however, if you want to speed up the process of getting great skin.

The quick work of supposed miracle skin care products are some of the biggest skin care myths around. What’s promised in an instant goes against how the skin’s cycle of health and healing works. To get super skin that truly has healed from damage and is in vital condition, you have to turn to natural sourced skin care and gentle products and you must embrace one of the most important products nature gives us: water!

Water is one of the best formulas you can turn to when looking for a skin care product that really works. It should be a main ingredient in the beauty products you use and, more importantly, it should be consumed regularly throughout the day.

How Much Water Should You Drink? 

A good rule to follow when it comes to your daily water intake is to make sure you’re sipping frequently throughout the day. Find every excuse you can to drink water. Have a full glass the moment you wake up and drink a glass between each meal. Take a portable water bottle with you on the go to drink from on hot days and when you can’t get to a glass.

Dehydration Leads to Dull Skin 

Don’t wait until you get thirsty to drink water. By that point, you’re already dehydrated. Consume water periodically during the day to stay hydrated and your skin, and entire body, will thank you for it. You don't need to stick to a formula like 8 glasses a day, just try to consume enough so that you don’t get thirsty. If you’re dehydrated, your body will pull moisture away from your skin to make sure your heart can function optimally.

Along with consuming enough water each day, you can keep your skin looking vital and healthy by using a natural skin care serum or cream that counteracts environmental and lifestyle stressors. Timeless Skin Care creates organic anti-aging creams and the best hyaluronic acid serum to do just that: keep you looking fabulous and feeling healthy and vibrant.
