Do You want to have luminous and hydrated skin? Follow these tips!
Excessive heating, excessive air conditioning, and hot baths can dehydrate the skin, causing it to dry out. This is because water evaporates excessively from the skin, there is simply not enough of it in the skin. And the less moisture your skin has, the more it will produce sebum in an attempt to compensate.
HOW DO YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRY AND DEHYDRATED SKIN?
Dry SkinThere can be many reasons why skin is dry. It can be hereditary, such as from your mum or dad, it can be caused by skin diseases(such as AD), or it can be caused by endocrine disruption. Healthy skin should produce an adequate amount of lipids to protect the skin from excessive water loss. If the skin is dry, lipid production is impaired and therefore water loss from the epidermis is increased. This results in dryness, itching, flaking and can also lead to atopic dermatitis.
Dehydrated SkinDehydrated skin is merely a condition that is most often temporary. It causes severe tightening of the skin and can highlight fine lines and wrinkles, and inflammation. Such skin is usually tender and flabby. How to check it? Pinch your cheek gently, if the skin does not immediately return to its state, but wrinkles, ensure it is properly hydrated.
HOW TO KEEP SKIN HYDRATEDThe first step in the fight against dehydrated skin is to hydrate from within! Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day. Also:
- Give up long, hot baths and showers. A few minutes of lukewarm shower is enough, and your skin will thank you!
- Use lighter formulas in the morning and more concentrated ones in the evening to keep your skin sufficiently hydrated. Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, oils and antioxidants.
- Use a humidifier in your house.
- Add more moisturizers to your skincare routine, such as a serum or oil, which locks in the moisture in your skin.
Does skin become more dehydrated with age?The older you get, the thinner, less elastic your skin becomes. The skin loses lipids, part of its protective barrier, which maintain adequate moisture in the epidermis and prevent dryness and irritation.
Try hyaluronic acid as a light serum, and to reduce water escape from the epidermis apply an oil product as a final layer.
