Your Ultimate Guide to Skin Hydration

This Summer has seen spells of intense hot weather subjecting our skin to soaring high temperatures and powerful UV rays. Directly exposed to the elements, our skin takes the full force of the heat making it vulnerable to dehydration. This lack of moisture dries and tightens the skin, leaving our complexion dull and lifeless and making fine lines and wrinkles instantly more pronounced. The good news is there are lots of quick and easy ways to rehydrate the skin so we asked Epsom Skin Clinics - experts in advanced anti ageing - to give us their guide to instant rehydration.

 

Physical Rehydration

When the skin is dehydrated the first thing to look at is replenishing the water lost from our bodies. We recommend immediately increasing your water intake to make sure you are reaching at least 8 glasses of water a day, you should also cut back on anything that dehydrates the skin such as alcohol and caffeine. Your skin will not only benefit from the increased moisture, but it will also help flush away harmful toxins from the body.

 

The Hydrating Facial

The Hydrafacial is a six step process specifically designed to rehydrate the skin. Benefits include improving sluggish lymphatic drainage systems and skin nourishment with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance playing a critical part in maintaining skin hydration. We tailor the hydrafacial to meet the requirements of individual skin types and our customers love how it leaves your skin instantly glowing and rehydrated. “Had my first hydrafacial and my skin feels lovely, cleansed and hydrated... would highly recommend!” Michelle, Surrey. We recommend a course of one treatment per month for six to twelve months to fully restore and rejuvenate dry and dull skin.

 

The Anti - Ageing Injection

Profhilo Bio Remodelling is a revolutionary moisturising skin treatment designed to improve the overall health and quality of your skin through the process of continuous hydration. By injecting this product, it works deeper into the skin than any topical cream and results in moisture being gradually released and absorbed into the skin maintaining a fresh, plump, hydrated complexion. This treatment contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid available on the market which not only hydrates the skin but also encourages collagen production making it an ideal treatment for fine lines caused by dehydration. “I wanted a natural alternative to Botox or Fillers and am so pleased to have found this amazing treatment, it's like putting an incredible moisturiser on and it staying on your skin for months, it has literally been a miracle treatment for my skin.” Alison, Surrey. For immediate rehydration, we recommend a single Profhilo treatment which is split into two sessions four weeks apart.
