To achieve soft skin that is smooth to the touch you must moisturize every day. Otherwise, it will dry out and become rough and flaking, causing wrinkles and even white spots to appear. These appearances are very unsightly. That is why it is important and necessary to dedicate a few minutes to our skin on a daily basis to care for it and make it look perfect. Completing a skin care regime using natural products is as effective as using cosmetics and is much cheaper. In OneHowTo.com, we show you how to naturally moisturize skin.
Drink 8 glasses of water a day
Hydrating your skin from the outside will not give any results if we previously don't look after it on the inside. This is why it's important to drink plenty of water during the day in order to have radiant, young and beautiful skin. More specifically, drink about 8 glasses of water a day. Something as simple will avoid your skin losing elasticity and flexibility prematurely, thus preventing aging and the appearance of imperfections in the body such as stretch marks.
You should also take plenty of vitamin C, antioxidants and omega 3 to go with your hydration. Discover the best vegetables for the skin in the following article and add them to your diet.
Teas that are good for the skin
Another way to naturally moisturize your skin from the inside is by taking teas such as green tea, chamomile, lavender or white tea. All of them have excellent properties to keep your skin healthy, give it vitality and moisten it from the deepest layers of skin to the most exterior.
Apart from taking them as tea, many of them are perfect to apply directly to the skin and make it more radiant.

Hydrate your skin with aloe vera
Aloe vera has a gel inside that is real gold for beauty, especially to moisturize skin, regenerate it, clean it and fight skin lesions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and irritations. You can apply the aloe vera gel on all the areas of the body you'd like to nourish or repair, as well as making a facial mask with aloe vera and spread it on your face so it looks beautiful and youthful.
Moisturize your skin with carrot juice
To moisturise skin it is enough to extend across the face a thin layer of honey, since this has nourishing and moisturising properties. Honey can even be used as part of a natural hair mask for dry hair.
Hydrate skin with honey and yogurt
The vitamins and natural enzymes in honey when combined with lactic acid and the antibacterial properties of natural yogurt allow you to obtain one of the best face masks to moisturize your skin that there is. It's perfect for all types of skin, even those who suffer from acne or excess oil as it reduces sebum and prevents the formation of impurities. You only need to mix both natural ingredients on a clean face, leaving it to stand for 10 to 15 minutes.
Moisturizing skin with coconut milk
Coconut milk is one of the products with more vitamins, nutrients and minerals that are beneficial to improve your skin, leaving it completely hydrated and with a silky texture you'll love. We recommend you purchase coconut milk and use it as a moisturizing cream on your body and leave it overnight. The next morning, you'll see how the dryness will have disappeared and the result is really surprising.
Mosturize the skin with cucumber
Last but not least, we advise you to moisturize your skin naturally using cucumber, which is ideal especially for moisturizing oily skin and to hydrate it so it's full of life. Grate a cucumber and mix with 3 tablespoons of yogurt, then spread it on your face and leave on for 15 minutes then rinse with cold water.
