Drink Your Way to Clear, Radiant Skin
Hydrating on the reg is one of the MOST important habits we can embrace to promote beautiful skin. But, did you know you can step up your drinking game (pun intended) to maximize impact? Here’s how to sip smart to support dermatological health.
Hydrate like a pro.
Recent studies have shown that consuming beverages containing water along with proteins and electrolytes will keep you even more hydrated than plain water—and for longer, too. This is because they help “slow the emptying of fluid from the stomach and keep hydration happening over a longer period of time.” Plus, newer studies have indicated that drinking tea can be just as hydrating as drinking plain water. With our SkinTē formulas brimming with essential electrolytes, collagen protein, and teas, you can sip confidently knowing you’re hydrating your body efficiently.
Here’s where things get REALLY exciting. The antioxidants in steeped teas and herbs protect our bodies from free radical damage on the inside, including our skin. Green and white teas have been shown to help protect skin against photo-aging (sun damage) and increase healing circulation in our skin. In addition, medical research shows white and green teas inhibit the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the two key structural compounds in our skin that give it youthful density and elasticity. Based on this research, you can see the importance of incorporating daily tea drinking into your beauty regime. In addition, other herbs like SkinTē’s hibiscus, rose petals, and ginger also provide a bevy of antioxidants and nutrients to help protect the skin from the inside out. One more important safe-guarding tip: drink beverages like SkinTē that are low in sugar. Consuming lots of sugar interferes with the integrity of our body’s collagen molecules… simply put, sugar makes collagen “sticky” leading to increased wrinkles over time. Yikes. No, thanks!
Who doesn’t love the experience of quenching their thirst with something refreshing and delicious? Even better is knowing you can simultaneously provide nutrients for vibrant, clear skin with each sip. Look for beverages that contain vitamin C, minerals, bioflavonoids, and collagen(!) to provide the raw materials your skin needs to continually rejuvenate itself to look and feel its best. SkinTē was formulated by a doctor for this EXACT purpose. Cheers to that! 🥂
