Love Your Skin: Tips to Keep Skin Moisturized, Naturally

Dry, scaly skin can be very unsightly, and nobody wants to have that. Sure you can buy all those expensive moisturizers to keep your skin smooth and glowing, but why spend on something chemical when you've got natural solution to your skin moisture problem?

Let's start off with water. We've always been told to drink eight to 10 glasses of water daily. This is because each and every cell in the body requires water to function. It is the water in our skin cells that give its supple feel.

But skin will only stay supple while its moisture-locking barrier is intact. Once its gone, you're going to start showing signs of water-loss (wrinkles, dryness, flaking, etc.). To make sure that the moisture stays in, try including omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods like salmon and tuna to your diet.

Of course, I'd have to say steering clear of alcohol and other dehydrating drinks will be a good idea if you don't want to lose your skin's moisture this early on. You don't want to look like you're 40 before you even reach mid-30's do you?
