Top tips for keeping skin hydrated for longer
Keeping your skin hydrated is the key to a beautiful, healthy complexion. So what can you do, aside from using moisturiser every day, to make sure your dermis doesn’t get too thirsty?
Start from the inside out. Your diet can have a big impact on the condition of your skin, so make sure you drink plenty of water and eat a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables.
It sounds simple, but it’s one of the most basic things you can do to prevent your skin from drying out. When your body becomes dehydrated your skin will be the first area to show it.
Similarly, put a stop to those bad habits. Smoking and drinking alcohol can really strip the moisture from your skin, so quit the cigarettes and keep alcohol consumption to a minimum.
Outwardly, you should use organic beauty products that will not strip the natural oils from your skin. The regime you follow will depend on your skin type.
For example, if you have sensitive skin, it’s especially important to use products that are free from harmful chemicals, dyes and fragrances that could cause your skin to flare up.
If your skin is oily, don’t be fooled into thinking it’s adequately hydrated. It could be greasy on the surface, but the cells below still need to retain moisture.
Using a serum in place of a regular cream at night is a great way to keep your skin hydrated, while oils are great to use once or twice a week for an instant moisture boost.
Apricot kernel oil makes a brilliant facial moisturiser. It’ll leave your skin soft and deeply nourished without feeling greasy, so don’t think you can’t use it if your skin is oily.
Avocado oil is another wonder product and is especially beneficial for mature or sun-damaged skin.
Of course skincare doesn’t stop at your jaw line. The skin on your neck and the rest of your body needs to be kept hydrated too, and with the countdown to summer now underway, this could be the ideal time to get into some good habits.
Natural organic shea butter is a real treat for the skin, tackling not only dryness, but fine lines and blemishes too. Stock up now ladies!

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
