It's Still Summer! So Stay Hydrated and Moisturized!
It’s still hot af out there and we’re here to remind you to keep yourself moisturized and hydrated as we move through the last part of one of the hottest years in recent memory.
Besides drinking plenty of plain H2O during the day, remember to keep your skin hydrated too! Here’s why we should take care of our beautiful epidermis.
Moisturizing helps reduce the signs of aging
During the summer months, our body is warmer and that means we lose more water and moisture in our bodies. Regular application of creams and enriched lotions will help protect your skin against the presence of fine lines and long-term wrinkle development.
Keeping your skin consistently moisturized will also keep its elasticity stronger, plumper and more radiant looking. Hivessence moisturizers are also formulated with other anti-aging ingredients to help lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, try our Hivessence Daytime Ageless Moisturizer, which has anti-wrinkle and skin firming ingredients including vitamins, botanicals, and cucumber extracts.
Creams, serums, and lotions help balance your skin’s natural oil creation
For those of us with oily skin, we may think it’s best to allow dry your skin out. Yikes, no because that is the worst thing you could do if you want to have balanced, beautiful skin. Instead of worrying about your excessive oils, work to equalize your skin’s natural oil production. Whenever you dry out your skin, our cells and glands are activated to produce more oil. Also, drying out your skin can be unpleasant if it is also peeling or feeling tight. This can lead to early wrinkles and patching skin. Having a balanced environment of natural oils, moisturizer, and vitamins on your skin will give you a beautiful, healthy look and glow and protect from early signs of aging. One of our most popular serums that can help is Hivessence Pro-Repair Serum with glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, and Chamomilla extract.
Keeping your skin moisturized makes applying makeup easier
When your skin is properly hydrated, it is much more even and elastic. Skin that’s flaky, patchy, or dry will make applying concealer, foundation, and powders more uneven and it won’t wear as well during a busy day. Some types of makeup will cause any fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes to be more noticeable vs. covering them up. Pre-conditioned moist and clean skin will significantly improve your makeup application giving it a smooth, seamless surface as its base. One of our best-selling products we love is our Hivessence Perfect 10 Oil Cleanser. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy formula that gives you healthier skin and will leave an even silkier finish for your makeup brushes to effortlessly glide across. Try to remember to always moisturize after cleansing. It is an important skin care step if you want to truly have beautiful skin day after day, year after year.
Moisturizing your skin should be a part of your morning and nighttime skin care routines – no matter what your skin type may be. It’s essential that you replenish your skin with moisture it may have lost after cleansing. For beautiful skin that glows it must be hydrated and able to retain that moisture throughout your day. Stay hydrated! Keep cool! Have fun! :)
