Hydrate! You’ve probably already heard of that so many times before, especially when your skin is dry and dehydrated. It’s true, though. You really need to make sure you’re keeping your skin hydrated in order for it to not only function well but also look great. But did you know that you can do more than just drink water when it comes to quenching your skin’s thirst? The key is to do it inside-out. How? Through these combinations of hydrating and skin-caring drinks and the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range.
Your dose for detox
Imagine wanting your plant to grow without weeding stray grass around it. You water it to no avail because the grass is feeding on it, too. The same goes for your skin. If you don’t cleanse it properly, no matter how much you try to hydrate it, you won’t get optimal results. So we say cleanse before you hydrate. On the inside, get a healthy dose of fiber to aid in flushing out the bad bits. A fan-favourite smoothie made with spinach, apple, and dates, which are all high in fiber, is great for this.
For the skin, make sure you cleanse without stripping it off of the natural oils it has. Plus, give it a boost of hydration while you’re at it. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser has a Patented BarrierCare Cleansing Technology that cleanses the skin effectively while helping to protect the skin’s barrier. It’s a lightweight cleanser that activates with water to remove dirt, oil and makeup. Infused with Hyaluronic Acid, this cleanser also helps lock in much-needed moisture.
A swig of hydration
Feel refreshed by enjoying a nice smoothie made with water-rich cucumber, strawberries and blueberries. Once you’re done with that, make sure you use aqua-rich products on your skin, too, to amp up the hydration. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel are just what you need.
The serum instantly quenches dry skin* and helps repair the skin’s moisture barrier — keeping it from getting dry. There are also capsules inside the serum that release antioxidants that protect the skin from dryness and other damaging factors.
Meanwhile, the oil-free and lightweight Hydro Boost Water Gel that delivers 48 hours of hydration to the skin.

A jigger of protection
We all know how heat and humidity can affect skin moisture. So make sure you protect your skin while keeping it hydrated and supple. Make a smoothie with sun-damage-combating and antioxidant-rich ingredients. Many love and rely on pineapple, bananas and oranges for that extra shot of protection.
On the outside, make sure you’re protecting your skin from the harsh and damaging rays of the sun with a sunscreen that gives broad-spectrum protection — that means shielding your skin from UVA and UVB rays — while keeping your skin hydrated. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 is perfect for this because it gives strong protection from the sun but it also contains hyaluronic acid to keep your skin’s moisture levels at an optimum.
