Can Drinking Electrolytes Hydrate Your Skin’s Natural Moisture Factor?

Our skin is the most incredible organ, not only does it protect us from germs and pollutants, but it also allows just enough water to enter the body when bathing. Is it possible that drinking a few electrolytes can hydrate your skin’s natural moisture to protect it from the inside out.

The cells in the outermost layer – the stratum corneum – are biologically dead but biochemically very active, containing interactive substances that help to repair and regenerate to keep the skin smooth, hydrated and healthy. These components include amino acids, peptides and minerals which together are called the Natural Moisture Factor (NMF).

What does the NATURAL MOISTURE FACTOR (NMF) do?

The NMF maintains adequate skin hydration to ensure:

  • Skin maintains its suppleness
  • Protects from damage
  • Enables enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells
  • Supports the stratum corneum barrier function

If the NMF becomes compromised, it can lead to skin inflammation such as eczema and dermatitis. The components of NMF work as powerful humectants to attract and bind water to the cells. It is so effective, that the NMF actually dissolves itself within the water it has absorbed.

How can electrolytes help to keep your skins natural moisture factor healthy?

Electrolytes are minerals that conduct electricity when mixed in water. Many of our cells run on electricity and once they are hydrated, they switch on a chain of reactions allowing cells to work more effectively to create energy and regulate PH levels. The minerals dissolve in the body’s fluids to support a healthy fluid balance, transfer nutrients into cells whilst also removing waste.

Why are electrolytes important to hydrate skin?

Blood vessels supply your skin with electrolytes from the food you eat and the water you drink.  Low levels of potassium and sodium electrolytes make our skin vulnerable to dryness and dehydration. Calcium and potassium promote a strong epidermal barrier(1), promote cell regeneration and improve the fatty acid content of the skin.

Electrolytes help your skin to retain water and we recommend considering an electrolyte supplement. In the skin, electrolytes help conduct electricity when combined with water, enabling cells to regulate pH levels. Together, calcium and potassium promote a strong epidermal barrier, boost cell regeneration, and improve the fatty acid content of the skin. All of these components are vital to maintaining homeostasis and managing trans epidermal water loss to promote healthy glowing skin.
