Our skin is like a sponge. It absorbs all the moisture it can get and at the same time it will readily allow moisture to escape on arid days.
Water constitutes at least 70% of our body mass. The cells of our skin swell up when they have sufficient fluids. If not, they shrink and start warping. This gives rise to dry skin and wrinkles in the long run.
Drinking lots of water and consuming lots of juicy and water rich fruits and vegetables will ensure that the skin retains a good quantity of water and does not become dry. Drink at least 3-4 liters of water per day.
Now that was about the internal means of replenishing water content in the skin. The skin needs to be fed externally as well. Natural moisturizers can go a long way in helping prevent such drying up of your skin from outside. So what are the different types of natural moisturizers and why must you use them?
Well, a natural moisturizer is nothing but a vehicle which supplies moisture to our skin and ensures it stays there. The difference from an artificial one would be the use of natural ingredients in the cream.
Some of the different types of natural moisturizing agents would be aloe Vera, phytessence wakame, vitamin E, manuka honey and grape seed oil.
It has been known from time immemorial that aloe Vera has several curative properties and it has been used extensively against burns, cuts, bruises etc
Phytessence wakame is a Japanese sea weed which has loads of sodium, iron, potassium and calcium which helps in keeping your skin hydrated.
Manuka honey and grape seed oil are known to seal the pores and help retain the moisture in the skin.
Vitamin E is very much essential for normal growth and development of the epithelial cells of your skin. It’s naturally available in all sorts of fruits and vegetables. Else at least ensure your body has intake of vitamin E supplements either externally or internally.
