Dehydrated SkinDehydrated skin is a skin condition, meaning that it is a developed skin concern, more temporary in nature. Where dry skin can be considered as oil-deficient, dehydrated skin can be regarded as being water-deficient, occurring as a result of insufficient levels of water being maintained within the skin.
Regulate the skins natural moisture balance to combat dehydrated skin
Introduction to dehydrated skin and how to spot the symptoms
As dehydration occurs as a result of insufficient levels of water within the skin, the best way to overcome this is to increase the amount of water taken up into the skin. In certain aspects, a lifestyle change may be necessary, as may be an adjustment of product usage. Consuming sufficient levels of water is important for overall health and well-being however, consuming more water within your diet may not necessarily overcome dehydration. The reason for this is that the skin is the last organ to receive water when ingested meaning that only a small percentage of all consumed water actually reaches the skin. Rather reach for topically-applied skin care products that are hydrophilic in nature, meaning they bind and retain water in the skin.
