Hydrate Your Body in 10 Minutes Flat

Temperature fluctuations, hard water, clothes that rub, and a host of other external factors can wreak havoc on our skin. The hydrolipidic film, which hydrates and protects our skin, is put under constant pressure and becomes damaged and unbalanced. Over time, our skin is left in dire need of help.

Our skin is partially hydrated by our liquid intake. Therefore, aim to drink 3-4 litres (about 10-12 glasses) of water a day. If you prefer flavoured drinks, mix things up with a cup of green tea. The steam generated by hot water partially penetrates the superficial layers of the skin and gives you a natural hydrating effect.

If you're pressed for time, you can apply an in-shower moisturiser to help hydrate the skin without leaving an oily film behind. Once you step out of the shower, remember not to rub too hard with a towel as you risk damaging the skin's surface as well the protective hydrolipidic film.

The best way to give your skin a helping hand is to apply a moisturiser both in the morning and at night. Use a texture that's suited to your skin type: lotion for normal skin, gel for oily skin, and cream if you're prone to dry or flaky skin. Take time to massage in the moisturiser, using upward strokes on the arms and legs and circular movements around the stomach. Massaging helps the skin absorb the active hydrating ingredients and encourages the flow of lymph fluid.

The elbows, knees, and ankles are usually the driest parts of the body. Work the moisturiser in until the cream or oil has fully penetrated the skin.

The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is enriched with micronized technology to reveal bright, crystal clear skin. Active ingredients like brightening salicylic acid accelerate skin renewal and mildly exfoliate the pores and skin texture. It is said to penetrate up to 10 skin layers to reveal a radiant skin tone by deeply repairing and moisturizing the skin for a smoother, youthful look inside out. It also exfoliates dead skin cells and accelerates skin renewal.

The micronized droplets come in an ultra-lightweight watery texture which is easily absorbs by the skin so that it feels fresh and non-sticky.

To use the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence cleanse your face and pour 3 to 4 drops. Pat gently on the forehead, cheek, and chin until fully absorbed. Repeat the process both day and night. Do not rub excessively between palms & do not apply with cotton.
