Hydration For Skin Beauty

Hydration For Skin Care. As most of you already know, I spent the past few days in Las Vegas. Although I wasn’t there to party, my skin still got a beating. With a combination of extreme heat, air conditioning and cigarette smoke, it didn’t stand a chance. On top of that, as much as I try to be consistent, my water consumption can sometimes fall short,which certainly doesn’t help increase the hydration my skin so desperately needs. . This is especially prevalent when I’m tired. When I don’t get enough sleep most things about my diet just go out the window.

So of course dehydration lines appeared around my eyes and my skin got a little blotchy even with my fabulous new HD foundation.  Here’s where something interesting happened that I want to share with you.  Walking around in Vegas you are constantly bombarded with people wanting to sell you something. Be it clothing, accessories (it took me about a half an hour to get out of a bag store. Who knew I’d want to leave but I did), or skincare. The sales are aggressive.

One such salesperson caught me on my last day. She was working at a kiosk in the Fashion Mall. Now keep in mind that I barely had any sleep the night before, I had just come in from a 25 minute walk under the blazing sun and I was dehydrated. First she complemented me and then proceeded to say that she had something for my eyes. Okay sure. She asked if I knew what collagen was, I said yes I am familiar with it and she proceeded to tell me all about it anyway. I suppose it’s just a part of her sales script.

She applied a cream all around my eyes and viola, all the fine lines disappeared.  I was about put down my credit card to purchase an expensive cream when she told me I also have rosacea. That’s when my brain kicked in.  First she created a skin problem that I don’t have and of course my eyes looked better, she just put a whole pile of badly needed moisture on them.

This is where my little life lesson comes in. As much as I love skincare products and will happily buy all of them, it’s important to actually try them out for a few days without purchasing everything in sight. Also, I need to remember to be smart about what I buy. There was a good reason that I wasn’t at my best and I can’t let a pushy sales person tell me what I need.

So from now on I pledge to drink a lot more water and be extra mindful of applying hydrating face masks when I travel!


Proper hydration for skin care is an essential beauty element:

  1. never heard of black tea mask ! would love to use it once at least !
    Thanks so much for ur comment on my blog !

    1. It is so wonderful. I feel my stress melting away when I use it!

      1. I have to try it!

        Kisses from My Bloglovin

        Today I show you a recap of my best instagram pics of the week….my InstaWOWS!!!.

  2. great post!
    check out my latest look:

  3. Caroline, you’re a wealth of knowledge, as always… My skin is hating my Euro-road trip and I am looking a bit like a sleepy pizza, if you know what I mean! I must try these products!

    1. I do, unfortunately! Seriously up the water and at night a calming face mask. Loving all your pics btw!

  4. We have to be careful with our skin I know what you´re talking about, one time I was having a little rosacea my skin also, and I got worried, thanks for the tips

    1. Yeah, whenever I get stressed or tired my skin tells the world about it!

  5. Indeed! Easy to spend money on products we actually don´t need or works so well with the skin 🙁

    1. Sample always samples from now on!

  6. Another great post Caroline! The same dehydration issues occur to me when I travel, because my routine is discarded. Hope you are drinking plenty of natural water and packing your skin with trustworthy products!

    1. Oh I am! Now that I’m home thank goodness everything is back to normal.

  7. Black tea mask??? Wow!!!! I would like to try it!!!
    Great post Caroline!

    1. It’s really fabulous!

  8. Fashion and love by Mihaela

    great selection Caroline, I love the products. Happy week-end!!!

    1. Happy weekend!

  9. I love all of the selection you give. I’m just starting to care for my skin (bad girl, I know) so it is nice to hear tips from a pro! Thanks so much!

    1. Thanks so much! Yes start taking care of it now, you will thank me!

  10. miss Margaret Cruzemark

    There are so many beauty products out there and some times it is really difficult to choose. I think i always go with exactly what i want and then the value for money.
    Miss Margaret Cruzemark

    1. Agreed! I still like to collect samples though!

  11. I loved reading your story….I always apply a hydrating mask on the plane… I look super shiny but it works.

    1. For longer flights I so as well. Luckily the flight was only 2 hours!

  12. This is such a helpful post! Dehydration and travelling do take such a huge toll on the skin… And I can’t even count the number of times a pushy sales person has gotten the better of me (and my wallet). Thanks for the lovely post!

  13. Laurie @ Pride in Photos

    Caroline, when my brown sugar mask from Fresh that you recommended is gone, do you think the black tea is a better product or stay with the brown sugar?

    1. Well, the brown sugar one is more of a polish. I would say it’s definitely worth a try. I love how cooling it is on my face and so far it has been lasting and lasting!

  14. …little did that sales woman know with whom she was talking 🙂 Excellent recommendations you got there!

    1. Seriously! I was shocked at how pushy and insulting the sales people were!

  15. Drooling over here…you know I love me good skin care and that definitely is right up my alley!

  16. Sparkling water is my favorite way to stay hydrated! Now I’m kinda addicted..
