Hydrating VS. Moisturizing
Eating healthy, vitamin dense foods is amazing for weight loss & good overall health..but did you know it’s crucial for the condition of your skin as well?
Hydrating and moisturizing are two very different things. Hydration is getting water into your skin cells while moisturizers are used to lock it in. (Think of good skin as working from the inside, out.)
How do you hydrate your skin?
- #1-Drinking water. Lots & lots of water!
- Getting in fish oil & flaxseed oil supplements. (Which are a staple in my daily intake for good overall health.)
- Eating water rich fruits & veggies.
What fruits & veggies contain the most hydrating benefits?
- Watermelon. (92% water)
- Strawberries. (92% water)
- Cantaloupe. (90% water)
- Peaches . (88% water)
- Cucumber. (96% water)
- Lettuce. (96% water)
- Zucchini. (95% water)
- Radish. (95% water)
- Celery. (95% water)
I see this theory of skin health & eating as a win-win! Get in your water, supps & fruits and veggies & literally watch how GLOWING your skin will look!
PS. One of my favorite ways to get in my water? Health & Fitness blogger The Skinny Report Daily’s Chia Water! (Pictured above) Happy Hydrating!

Love this post by beauty and hair guru Brittany Michelle
I’ve been trying to find ways to keep my skin from getting dry, and I’ve ended up just putting more and more moisturizer on every day. This helped me understand the concept of taking care of the inside & the outside, so thank you!
Awe, that makes me SO HAPPY! I’m so glad this helped! 🙂 If your skin is still feeling dry after a few weeks, give coconut oil a try! Its the ultimate natural moisturizer! http://brittanymicheleblog.com/2013/05/17/coconutoil/ ❤ xo
I totally agree! Great post. I do the same as you!
Yay!! ❤ xoxo
