Slathering on a thick, super rich cream isn't always the solution when your skin is in dire need of moisture. What it does require: water-attracting ingredients like hyaluronic acid, a superstar hydrator that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Plus, stellar formulas, such as those with occlusive agents that prevent moisture from evaporating to keep water in your skin longer, says Neal Schultz, MD, a dermatologist in NYC and founder of Beauty Rx skin care.
Foods that contain mostly water can be just as hydrating for your body (and skin) as drinking H2O. Eat water-dense fruits and veggies such as berries, watermelon, plums, peaches, cucumbers, celery, bell peppers, and lettuce — throughout the day.
