Dry or dehydrated skin? The only thing needed to renew your skin…
Do you think dry and dehydrated skin mean the same thing? Experts say it isn’t. “Dry skin is more of a skin type, while ‘dehydration’ (thirst) is a skin condition. One can have oily skin but still be dehydrated. Dehydration means your skin cells are dehydrated, which causes your skin to dry out.
A lack of moisture means your skin is lipid-deficient and your sebaceous glands are not feeding your skin naturally. Dehydration can come and go and depends on the amount of water you consume. Weather conditions and environmental conditions are also effective on this problem.
FIVE SYMPTOMS OF THROUGH SKIN
- Itchy and flaky skin
- Red skin with increased sensitivity, discoloration due to hyperpigmentation
- fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull and matte appearance
Slightly tighten when you touch your skin, if it is not elastic enough, it means your skin is dehydrated.
- To combat dehydration, you should increase your water intake while actively using products to reabsorb lost water and improve moisture retention. Be sure to add products rich in antioxidants and moisturizers. IV therapy can help hydrate your skin quickly after a workout or day out in the sun.
- Cocoa-based face masks also help rejuvenate the skin, restore moisture, and retain moisture, while also reducing excess melanin and reducing hyperpigmentation. In this way, it can also enter facial blemishes.
- Avoid caffeine as it depletes the skin’s water content. You can limit your coffee intake to two per day.
- Be mindful of gentle exfoliation rather than harsh exfoliation. Healthy skin can take up to 25 days to rehydrate, and dehydrated skin may take longer than that. Therefore, avoid reducing residual moisture by exfoliating.
