Moisturizing: essential for healthy skin

A BEAUTIFUL SKIN

 

An adult weighing 70 kilograms has just over 42 liters of water in their body (60% of our body mass): 28 liters inside the cells, about 10.5 liters in the space around the cells, and a little less than 3.5 liters (about 8% of the total water amount) in the blood.

 

The skin is one of the main water reservoirs of our body.
Its role is essential for maintaining the proper functioning of our body. To perform its functions optimally, it must be properly nourished with water. Having beautiful skin reflects that it is well-hydrated. The level of water in the skin determines the degree of skin hydration.

 

 

 

THE ROLE OF WATER IN OUR SKIN

 

Did you know that the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin, is like a sponge?

It absorbs water from the dermis, the layer just beneath it. This hydration keeps our epidermal cells nourished and full of vitality, thanks to essential elements like oxygen, glucose, and fatty acids. But water doesn’t just come from inside; it can also come from outside, like when you wash or use moisturizing products.

 

Water plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of our skin. In fact, it is at the very heart of its functions. Imagine it as the fuel that powers the engine of our epidermis.

 

And did you know that hydration and the keratinization process, which is the accumulation of keratin in our skin cells, go hand in hand? It is thanks to water that this process can proceed correctly. Keratin, this magical fibrous protein produced by our cells, is like the foundation of our skin. It gives it structure, ensures its impermeability, and protects it from UV rays. In short, pamper your skin, hydrate it, and it will reward you with beauty!

 

HYALURONIC ACID + WATER = BEAUTIFUL SKIN

 

This water that our skin contains is the best friend of hyaluronic acid, a large protein present in our dermis. Together, they form an unbeatable team! Imagine hyaluronic acid as a water captor in your skin, capable of retaining between 300 and 500 ml of water per gram.

And that’s not all! Besides this well-installed water, there is also another group of free water, ready to move around and nourish our epidermis. It’s like our skin has its own irrigation system, isn’t that fascinating?

 

If you use a cream containing hyaluronic acid daily, I invite you to use our AQUAPOP rehydration solution as a complement to reap all the benefits. It contains the electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to optimize your hydration level. Besides having a great taste, it is sugar-free and calorie-free. It is perfect for daily consumption while keeping in shape and having beautiful skin.

 

 

SIGNS OF A SUFFERING SKIN

 

What is thirsty skin? It is skin that grimaces! Imagine it as a sponge forgotten in the desert: it feels tight, lacks suppleness, in short, it is not happy at all. Skin dehydration is like an invitation to discomfort. Sometimes, it goes as far as flaking and looking like an old crumpled road map! And the worst part is that it can even make you look older, with fine lines to boot.

 

Oh, and a little bonus info: men often have even thirstier skin than women. So, no question of leaving our skin thirsty, we pamper it with a good dose of hydration!

 

 

DRINKING TO REFUEL THE SKIN

 

You know, for our skin to function well and stay at its best, it needs water. And since it loses water throughout the day, it’s up to us to give it enough back by drinking sufficiently. Without this daily dose, our skin cannot play its role as a natural barrier and it loses its softness. Well-hydrated skin is like a sign that our body is well-hydrated too.

 

So, water is our best ally for beautiful skin! But when and how much should we drink? Well, an adult loses about 2 to 2.6 liters of water per day, mainly through urine and sweat. This can vary depending on the temperature, our activity level, and even if we are sick. But to get an idea, it’s generally said that we need about 30 ml of water per kg of body weight each day.

 

For example, if we weigh 70 kg, that makes about 2.1 liters of water per day. But that doesn’t mean we should only drink pure water! Foods like fruits and vegetables also provide water.

 

In short, the idea is to drink regularly throughout the day. And when it’s hot or we’re very active, we need to drink even more to make up for what we lose. The trick is to stay well-balanced: what we give our body should be enough to make up for what it loses. So, let’s toast to well-hydrated skin and radiant health!

 

OUR BEAUTY TIP:

 

To adequately cover your daily water and electrolyte needs, we invite you to take a course of our dietary supplement AQUAPOP, your hydration partner.
Its composition is adapted to enhance your body’s hydration level, you just need to drop an effervescent tablet into your water bottle in the morning and drink its content throughout the day.
