When I think about how to be achieve super hydrated skin, images of water come to mind. Splashing my face in the morning, drinking my required 32 liters per day, even spritzing my skin with a refreshing hydrosol. What doesn’t come to my mind is oil. Oils deliver many important benefits to the skin, but they don’t penetrate into the deepest cellular layers the way water, or an emulsion that contains water as an ingredient, does. While oils are excellent to nourish and protect the top layer of our skin, lock in our natural moisture and prevent water from evaporating, oils do not actually hydrate. Only water can do this. But one needs the other, which is why oil and water are the two most fundamental ingredients for healthy skin.
Spas do more than offer relaxation. They also have your best health in mind. Whether you have one hour, one day or a whole week to spa (sign me up!) – or if you simply want to use these ideas for your own healthy lifestyle, spas are an inspired source for healthy habits that naturally detoxify body and mind.
