Dehydrated Skin

There’s nothing worse than the feeling of itchy, red and irritated skin. Not only does dehydrated skin feel horrible, but its’ appearance can cause self-consciousness in almost anybody. Before understanding how to treat dehydrated skin, it’s important to know the difference between dehydration and skin being simply dry. Dehydrated skin, unlike dry skin, is characterized by a lack of moisture; dry skin is just skin lacking in oil. So if you think your skin may be dehydrated, how can you go about returning it to normal?

  • Avoid rough scrubs and cleansing brushes; these can serve to further irritate your skin, and they can even be painful.
  • Ignoring the temptation to overload on perfume and other fragrances, especially those that contain retinol.
  • Staying away from extreme temperatures, such as any place near AC units or forced air heating. Also, wearing extra clothing when in frigid wind or blistering heat.
  • Vitamin B3 boosts ceramides and fatty acids in the stratum corneum when in the form of niacinamide, which has a positive impact on your skin barrier function.
  • Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effect ingredients when considering skin hydration, especially when used multi-weight in a formulation.

As with many other skin conditions, the application of moisturizer can only have positive effects; a useful moisturizer is necessary to maintain the health and wellness of your skin.
