Clients often tell me they don't use moisturizer because they have oily skin. This is a big mistake! Every skin type needs some form of hydration, whether it be creams, oils, or water based emollients. When skin is deprived of moisture, it compensates by over producing its own oil. If you have oily skin there are alternatives to help you avoid this oily pitfall.

The best form of hydration is provided by nature. Water. Your skin can never have enough water. You can always tell when a person drinks plenty of water just by looking at their skin. Water gives you clear, fresh looking skin. My 52 year old father has beautiful, youthful skin and all he drinks is water. Drinking at least 64 oz. a day is ideal for well hydrated skin. Hydrated skin also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. This is the first and easiest step to better looking skin. Start today. Set a goal to drink at least 3 glasses of water today and increase your intake at your own pace. If you don't like the taste of plain water, add lemon, lime or mint to your water. Even drinking tea counts as water intake and you'll be getting your antioxidants.
