Water is essential for the human body. Your body consists of about 60 -70% water and adequate hydration is required to carry out essential functions necessary for survival.

Your skins tissue is made up of cells which require water to function properly. As we age our skin slows the production of many beneficial substances that naturally help keep your face hydrated.

Ceramides are lipids (fat) which form the skin’s natural moisture barrier and protect it from the external environment. As we age, our skin’s barrier may be compromised or become weak due to the natural decrease of ceramide (fat) production. This often results in skin dehydration, roughness, wrinkles, and sensitivity. Hydration is vital for all individuals and as you age, treating your skin with an extra dose of hydration can be beneficial.


Dehydrated skin occurs when there is a lack of the water in the skin and can often happen to anyone regardless of their skin type. When our skin is lacking moisture or water it starts to become dry, flaky and is often more prone to wrinkles and fine lines due to shrinkage of the cells in the top layer of the skin.

Dry and flaking cells do not reflect light as well as healthy hydrated cells often causing the skin to look dull and rough.

In comparison, when your skin is more hydrated it will feel and appear more supple, plump, and healthy.

Hydration 2
Fine lines and wrinkles

Water keeps your body hydrated and maintains the skins elasticity making your skin appear plump and smooth.

Oil production

Dehydrated skin can often produce more oil because it is compensating for a lack of moisture in the skin.


Throughout all stages of life, it is essential to maintain a substantial level of hydration in the skin. When it comes to ageing and maintaining hydration there are several ways you can support your skin to remain healthy and strong.


Keep your skin well hydrated from the inside by consuming enough water. Beyond flushing waste out of your body and helping your organs to function effectively, drinking water helps nourish your skin and improve elasticity.

People who drink large amounts of water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles, and fine lines. As we age it is harder for your body to retain water so consuming more H2O helps to stay hydrated and refreshed.

Fuel your body with a well-balanced diet as you can also hydrate your body and your skin through nutrient
rich foods.


There are several products and treatments for your skin that can further assist in maintaining hydration. Skincare products such as moisturisers can act as a seal on the surface of your skin preventing water from escaping. Often, they help your skin feel less dry and smooth to touch.
