There are many causes of dehydrated skin. dry climates, windy conditions and sun exposure can all lead to dehydration. Other causes include using harsh products, hot water and chemical cosmetics. Dehydrated skin can also be a side effect of certain medications as well as poor diet.

Dehydrated skin can be a nuisance. It can make you look and feel older than you are. Dehydrated skin is more prone to develop fine lines or even deep wrinkles. It can also cause your makeup to look dry and cakey. But there are ways to combat dehydrated skin. By using the right products for daily regime and having beauty treatments from time to time you can prevent it!

How to tell your skin is dehydrated?

There are a few ways to tell if you have dry skin. First, take a look at your skin. If your pores are tight and some fine lines are visible or simply when it looks dry, flaky or dull and rough.

Another way to tell if you have dry skin is to pay attention to how your skin feels. If it feels tight, sensitive itchy or irritated, you may be suffering from dehydrated skin.

What are the causes of dehydrated skin?

  • Extreme temperatures – whether is hot or cold it can damage the skin natural moisture barrier
  • Overly abrasive exfoliation – this is particularly damaging when harsh abrasive products are used, for example nonprofessional mechanical peels with big particles
  • Aggressive cleansers – products with harsh detergents will damage your skin and affect its availability to retain moisture
  • Air conditioning – air conditioning units reduce the amount of humidity in the air that causes damage to the skin moisture
  • Poor diet and a bad lifestyle – it has a significant impact on the overall health of your skin
  • Age – with age the skin loses its water retaining properties

Why we all want to have hydrated skin?

There are many benefits to keeping your skin hydrated. Proper hydration can help to improve the appearance of your skin, making it look healthier and more youthful. Well-hydrated skin looks healthy, plump and younger and will improve your overall appearance. It has a huge impact on skin elasticity as well as fibroblast and collagen production.

A lack of hydration can also cause build-up of dead skin cells making your skin appear dull. However internal and external rehydration can unveil your healthy skin glow. Proper hydration can also help to keep your skin feeling softer and smoother. In addition, it can help to reduce sensitivity and inflammation.

Finally, adequate hydration is essential for healthy skin cell function. Skin cells need water to function properly. When they are dehydrated, they are less able to carry out their normal functions. This can lead to a variety of problems, such as premature aging for example.

How to keep your skin hydrated

First, make sure you are drinking plenty of water – but always with a pinch of salt

This will help to keep your skin cells hydrated and functioning properly. Water is essential for keeping your body hydrated and functional and it is the same for the skin. We suggest drinking a minimum 1,5 liter of water per day best with a pinch of salt so it works as an isotonic. Make sure you use natural salts like Himalayan pink salt for example.


Try Green beauty

Do not use aggressive products with artificial ingredients on your skin. High street products are full of toxic substances that will damage the skin’s natural barrier.

Swap your products for natural beauty and professional beauty – by this, I mean organic dermocosmetics products with botanical extracts, and oils of natural organic origin.

You should also avoid using harsh soaps and cleansers as they can strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, use gentle, hydrating products even when cleansing. Do not over-exfoliate your skin with scrubs or peels.

Look for products that contain hyaluronic acid, natural oils or oil-based moisturizers, as these ingredients can help to draw and retain moisture in the skin. Always make sure you are using products with natural and organic ingredients.


Omega 3 rich diet

Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids is another great way to keep your skin hydrated. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for healthy skin cell function. They help to keep your skin cells plump and hydrated, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce inflammation, which can be beneficial for those suffering from conditions like acne or psoriasis.

Some great sources of omega-3 fatty acids include oily fish as well as flaxseeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds. Nuts are great for your skin too- packed with vitamin E and zinc! Adding a few of these superfoods to your diet can help to improve the health and appearance of your skin.


Always adapt to the weather

Try to avoid extremes of temperature. This means both hot and cold weather. extreme temperatures can damage your skin and make it more difficult to retain moisture.

Be sure to use sunscreen when you are outdoors. The sun’s rays can cause further dehydration and damage to the skin. By taking these steps, you can help to prevent or treat dehydrated skin. When your skin is properly hydrated, it will look and feel its best therefore it is very important to protect your skin from sun damage which can cause skin dehydration as well as pigmentation, and premature aging, and it can reduce skin elasticity. Use Spf 30 daily and Spf 50 + when on holidays and exposed to strong sun.

Be sun smart, cover up and don’t forget to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.


Bye bye hot showers

We know how good it feels to take a hot shower after a long day, but hot water can actually strip your skin of its natural oils, causing it to become dry, irritated and inflamed. If you suffer from dehydrated skin, try turning the temperature down when you shower and opt for lukewarm water instead. This will help to preserve your skin’s natural oils and keep it hydrated.


Dead skin cells

One of the best ways to treat dry skin is to exfoliate dead skin cells. This will help to smooth and soften your skin, as well as improve its overall appearance. It is very important to exfoliate on a regural basis as this will also help with the absorption of the products you apply on your skin.

There are a few different ways you can exfoliate your skin. You can use a physical exfoliator, such as a scrub or dry brush, or you can use a chemical exfoliator, such as a peel or enzyme peel.

If you have dry skin, we recommend using a physical exfoliator 2-3 times per week. Look for a gentle scrub that contains natural ingredients like bamboo grains or ground oats. Avoid scrubs that contain harsh, abrasive particles as these can further irritate and dry out your skin.


Oils – and oil based moisturizers

Oils are a great way to hydrate and nourish your skin. They are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that can help to improve the health and appearance of your skin. In addition, oils can help to lock in moisture and prevent your skin from becoming dehydrated.

There are a few different ways you can use oils to hydrate your skin. You can add a few drops of oil to your regular moisturizer or you can use an oil-based moisturizer. You can also apply oils directly to your skin before applying your moisturizer.

If you have dry skin, we recommend using natural oils or oil based moisturizers, as these ingredients can help to lock in moisture and prevent your skin from becoming dehydrated.

Some great natural oils for the face include jojoba oil, sesame oil, rosehip oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, argan oil, and almond oil.

Optimal Facial Cleanser

For the best results, especially for problematic skin, do a double cleanse – just repeat the cleansing twice to make sure you remove all the impurities and residues.

Keep the hair away from the face. And wash the face first with room-temperature water. Squeeze out two to three drops of the cleansing gel into the palm of the hands and create a foamy texture with water. Apply it on the facial and neck skin areas. Massage the foam for a minute, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Dry the skin with a clean towel. Use regularly for achieving flawless results.

2. Exfoliating

A revolutionary Gentle Bamboo Peeling utilises the nutrients of bamboo powder as an exfoliating agent to make skin silky smooth and soft.
