Deep skin hydration for when 8 glasses of water are just not enough

The change of seasons that brings hotter weather makes it difficult to stay hydrated as it is, let alone during Ramadan when you will not be drinking during the day. Keeping hydrated is vitally important to your health, while this applies to your whole body, you may notice signs of dehydration on your skin. Your skin may feel dry and tight due to dehydration, which can be uncomfortable. So, how do you tackle skin dehydration, other than drinking water between sunset and sunrise? Here are our top tips for deep skin hydration for when 8 glasses of water are just not enough.

1. Use sunscreen

We all know the importance of sunscreen to protect from burns, but it is vital to apply even when you won’t be spending too much time in the hot sun, especially when not consuming enough water during Ramadan. You should use SPF 30 or above and reapply regularly throughout the day.

2. Use rich moisturizers

Thicker, richer formulas benefit your skin the most as they are usually packed with more hydrating ingredients than you will find in light moisturizers. This will keep your skin moist for longer, preventing and eliminating dryness, perfect for long days without water during Ramadan.

3. Eat a balanced diet

Fried foods and sugar are known to contribute to dehydration due to their high-fat content. This is just as bad for your skin as your health. If you are fasting during Ramadan, you may miss out on vital food groups due to limited time spent eating, so try to fit in as many vitamins as you can. Instead, choose foods high in water content like fruit and salad.

4. Avoid heavy makeup

Applying lots of makeup can block your pores, and if you are not consuming enough water, your skin’s natural balance will be thrown off and it won’t be able to fight back against this. Give your skin a helping hand by not applying as much makeup or even better, skip out on your makeup routine altogether.

5. Try hydrating treatments

Ivory Aesthetics Clinic has a variety of hydrating treatments that are ideal for keeping your skin happy during the month of Ramadan. Just some examples are a Hydrafacial, Hyaluronic Skin Booster, and Marine Algae Treatment, which are all scientifically designed to reinvigorate dry and dull skin.

AED 300 vs AED 600 HydraFacial – The Difference Explained

The HydraFacial has become one of the most popular and trending facials in Dubai, and with good reason!

It’s a multi award winning treatment that uses hydra-dermabrasion to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, hydrate and provide antioxidant protection.

A lot of aesthetic spas and facial centers in Dubai are now offering the HydraFacial, but a common question we get it is…

Why do the prices differ so much from place to place?!

There are HydraFacial’s starting from AED 300 and going up all the way to AED 600+, depending on where you go.

After we received tonnes of enquiries from our very own clients about this, we decided to do a short post explaining it.

The HydraFacial is a customized facial that is done using the HydraFacial machine.

Just the use of the machine can be added on to any facial for approximately AED 100 at many spas.

However, this add-on does not make use of the various ampules and products that come along with a complete HydraFacial.

It’s like exfoliating your skin, but not applying the products needed post that which will actually help regenerate your skin from within.

Most of the lower-end HydraFacials use a basic facial with the addition of the HydraCool machine towards the end.

However, a more comprehensive and result-oriented HydraFacial makes use of the full range, which includes products like super serums, hyaluronic acid masks, hydro-peptides and more.

These are the products that actually infuse your skin with hydration from within, and are things you would otherwise be paying for separately (often at higher prices).

So, we hope that clears up confusion on how and why prices for the HydraFacial tend to vary so much.
