Why Magnolia Med Spa Recommends Drinking Water For Skin Hydration

Magnolia Med Skin Hydration Treatments

At Magnolia Medical & Aesthetics, our med spa specialists recommends drinking a sufficient amount of water per day for hydration and to keep skin supple. In San Antonio, the Texas heat and humidity can lead to loss of skin moisture through excessive sweating. So, amidst the plethora of skin hydration advice, one of our common recommendations is to drink plenty of water.

But does water really contribute to skin hydration? Well, let’s explore what hydration does for your skin and other ways to enhance skin moisture.

What Hydration Does For The Skin

Hydration sets the stage for vibrant, healthy skin. In addition to ensuring that every cell operations optimally, it also is responsible for your skin’s elasticity. It turn, it can make the skin look more youthful by reducing the appearance of fine lines. Also, well-hydrated skin heals faster from sunburn, which is particularly relevant in sunny San Antonio during the hot summer heat.

While our Magnolia med spa skin specialists believes drinking water is essential for overall health, it has less of an impact on skin hydration than you might think. Particularly at the dermal moisture levels, water is less significant. The skin’s hydration is more dependent on external moisturizing and whether the skin’s structure stays intact.

Other Ways Magnolia Med Spa Recommends Improving Skin Hydration

Because of the limited impact of drinking water has on skin moisture, it’s important to look at other methods to keep your skin glowing and hydrated.

1. Gentle Cleansing. Magnolia med spa specialists say choose your face cleanser wisely as it plays a critical role in maintaining your skin’s hydration. Harsh cleansers leads to irritation and dryness because they strip the skin of its natural oils.

But gentle, hydrating cleansers wash dirt way without compromising the skin’s barrier. This approach not only retain moisture, but also keeps the skin supple and soft.

2. Regularly Exfoliating. Two common elements that hinder hydration are clogged pores and dead skin cells. This means that the serum you’re placing onto your skin will have a difficult time reaching its intended target.

For this reason, regular and gentle exfoliation allows moisturizers and serums to penetrate deeper into the skin, thus enhancing their hydrating effects. But don’t over-exfoliate, as this can lead to moisture loss and damage the skin’s barrier.

3. Use Professional Facial Treatments. If you’re seeking rejuvenation and deeper hydration, professional hydrating facial treatments offer an extensive solution.

One such example is our Hydrafacial. Our device uses Vortex Fusion Technology, which works like a vacuum to penetrate inner pores and increase the effectiveness of the treatment. When paired with chemical peels or laser treatment, hyaluronic acid’s hydration effects can be further improved.

Performed by professionals, these treatments combine hydration with serums, massage, exfoliation, or hydrating treatments. They can greatly improve your skin’s texture, moisture level, and overall appearance, providing benefits that are difficult to achieve with DIY care.
