Beauty Skin Hydration Tips from Vida-Flo Nashville

We all care about our skin and our health.

We definitely want that glow that inspires compliments. The most important piece of beautiful skin and good health is hydration; making sure that we are drinking enough fluids on a daily basis is tantamount for all of us. Aside from hydration, Vida-Flo recommends knowing exactly what type of skin you have and how to care for it properly. Oily skin will have different needs from dry skin and etc. We can only meet these specific needs when we know what they are. For example, if you have dry skin, no matter how many times you visit Vida-Flo’s IV lounge, your skin will never be able to maintain its moisture. Sometimes, our skin needs a little bit of extra tender, love, and care. Dry skin is basically inflammation, oils like ylang-ylang and lavender can help calm the skin by calming the inflammation. Herbal teas and masks made of these oils and also herbs like chamomile or even oatmeal can also be a nice addition to our beauty and skin care routines. Whether we have combination, oily, or dry skin, we want to avoid any products that utilize harsh chemicals and fragrances or alcohol. For oilier skin, lighter moisturizing oils like avocado and almond oil will help the skin maintain moisture without clogging the pores with more oil. Diet is also an important part of having good health and beautiful skin. Water rich fruits and vegetables like pineapples and cucumbers or celery can add to the hydration that we are seeking.

Skin eruptions and mutinies can cause oily skin to have breakouts and pimples while those with drier skin can suffer from patches and discoloration. Dehydration and lack of appropriate skin resources can lead to terrible skin woes. Hydration therapy is not only necessary for our bodies, it is also amazing for our skin. Hydration can be even more essential for those of us that reside in colder climates. Vida-Flo’s IV lounge is a great place to go to get hydration therapy IV treatments to supplement our daily health and beauty regiments.

Flawless Winter Hydration Therapy Tips for Skin

It is that time of the year when our noses and lips start to peel, our fingers get chapped, and our skin revolts, getting drier and itchier as the days get colder!  

These winter months can wreak havoc on even the most beautiful skin. Most of us know how important hydration is to our bodies and that hydration therapy for skin is absolutely essential; but how many of us know how much more important hydration becomes in the winter. This is especially true for those of us living in colder climates  Of course, the fastest and most intense way is to visit the nearest IV lounge to reap IV infusion benefits but in between hydration therapy IV treatments, what’s the best way to maintain our supple skin during the cold harsh winter months?

First, hydration starts from the inside.  Making sure that you are drinking enough fluids throughout the course of the day is of the utmost importance.

Next, know what your skin needs.   Are you oily, dry, or a combination of both?  Being able to determine what nutrients your skin wants will definitely help with creating a good skin care regiment.   If you can, avoid luxuriating in a piping hot shower or an extra, long bath. Hot water only dries out your skin. Also, adding a few drops of a relaxing or moisturizing essential oil to your bath will help relieve any dryness and associated inflammation.  Chamomile and Ylang-Ylang are two commonly used oils this purpose. It is also wise to avoid any harsh skin care products like those with an excessive amount of alcohol or fragrance. These chemicals will not be kind to winter skin. Instead, opt for natural moisturizers like Shea butter and cocoa butter or even avocado and almond oils if you prefer a lighter feeling.

Lastly, remember to eat your water too!  Water-rich foods like cucumbers, tomatoes, and celery as well as foods high in omega fatty acids like walnuts and flaxseeds, (which can be added to smoothies for amazing added health benefits), will boost your skin’s ability to maintain its own moisture.  Just like that, you’ve created your own hydration therapy for skin. Don’t let the winter steal your glow! Stay hydrated.

Fall’s Hottest Trends in Beauty and Skin Care

As summer winds down and fall begins to approach, your skin care regime should be changing to reflect this transition.

Here are a few Vida-Flo beauty skin care tips to help you look and feel your best as the colder months approach.

  1. Increase moisture.

Fall brings the dryer climates which means your skin will need increased moisture. While you should opt for a thicker moisturizing cream, you can also moisturize from the inside out. Vida-Flo beauty skin care experts created a targeted treatment plan, “The Beautifier,” as a solution for those who want to improve their appearance in a natural way. The Vida-Flo beauty skin care treatment includes hydrating fluids, biotin, vitamin C, and vitamin D. Customers notice an overall improvement in their health, wellness, and beauty as this treatment adds moisture and vitamins to the skin from the inside out.

  1. Replace exfoliation treatments with antioxidants.

Exfoliation is a great tool for warmer months to keep skin shiny and fresh, but during colder months exfoliation can cause harm to the skin’s outer layers. During the colder months, your skin naturally sheds less to maintain your body temperature and fight against colds. Exfoliation forces healthy skin to shed, which can result in premature aging. A better alternative is to increase antioxidants. Vida-Flo beauty skin care experts recommend nature’s most powerful antioxidant, glutathione which is available in the “Cleanse” wellness plan.

  1. Use a humidifier.

Did you know you can improve your appearance this fall as you sleep? A humidifier is an excellent way to ensure the environment that you rest in contributes to your beauty. A humidifier works by pumping moisture into the air. Your skin absorbs this moisture which helps you to look and feel better all while you are resting. Investing in a humidifier is a great way to enhance your beauty sleep.

How to Improve Eczema Naturally and Effectively!

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is the skin condition that causes red, dry, and itchy skin.

Affecting both adults and children, the condition is commonly seen in the creases of elbows, behind knee caps and even on the neck and face. If you suffer from eczema then you understand the condition is uncomfortable, unsightly, and can feel uncontrollable at times. While there is no known cure, but there are natural remedies for eczema. Read on to learn more about how to improve eczema with Vida Flo’s hydration therapy.

1. Hydrate

Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, so health is synonymous with hydration. Most people don’t get the daily recommended consumption of water. With so many beverage options at our disposal, choosing water can seem like the least inspiring option. Here at Vida-Flo, we understand the importance of water and we know that drinking it isn’t the only way to get its various benefits. We recommend hydration therapy as an alternative method for those who struggle with their daily intake of water.

The Vida-Flo hydration therapy method is applied through an IV and uses 1000ML bags that consists of normal saline (0.9% sodium chloride), electrolytes of potassium, calcium, minerals, and lactate. These ingredients are all natural, but aren’t usually found in bottled water which is often stripped of the vital nutrients your body needs to maintain adequate hydration levels. Hydration therapy will give your skin the internal moisture it needs which can help to decrease the symptoms of eczema.

2.  Moisturize

If are wondering how to improve eczema, then you need to understand the role of topical moisture. It is critical for you to apply a layer of moisturizer to your skin twice daily. We recommend a natural moisturizer like unrefined shea butter which is rich in vitamin A and vitamin E. This will also help to improve the appearance of dark marks and scars. Shea butter may seem like a heavy, creamy, and thick moisturizer but it is quickly absorbed by the skin, so you won’t look or feel greasy long after you apply it.

3.  Soften your water

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and when we shower we absorb the water directly into our skin. Unfortunately, the water that comes from our shower isn’t the best for our skin especially when it is considered to be hard water. Hard water is contains higher levels of calcium and magnesium. Exposure to hard water can significantly enhance the symptoms of eczema. By placing a water softener over your shower head, you can shield yourself from hard water deposits and reduce the absorption of high levels of calcium and magnesium in your skin.

4.  Use natural soaps and detergents

If you suffer from eczema, you can greatly benefit from natural soaps and detergents. Traditional soaps contain ingredients like sodium lauryl, laureth sulfate, dioxane, parabens, propylene glycol, diethanolamine, and fragrances. These chemicals are not only hard to pronounce, but they also can trigger eczema flare ups. Opt for a more natural alternative like castile soap which is oil based and natural and can be used to wash your skin and clothes.

5.  Eliminate food allergens

Often times eczema is a result of food allergens. If you have never been tested for food allergies you may be consuming the foods that are causing your discomfort. A simple food allergy test can help you identify the foods that are not compatible with your body, so you can begin to make informed food decisions.

There are many natural remedies for eczema, but here at Vida-Flow, we encourage you to experience the wonders of hydration therapy. Schedule your first appointment today by clicking here.
