Dehydrated & Dry Skin
Dehydrated Skin and Dry Skin
Dehydration can quickly make you look years older than you really are. I am not talking about dry skin. They are two different things. If your skin type is 'dry' it means your sebaceous glands produce relatively little healthy oils. Having a dry skin type can be part of your genetic makeup. You're generally that way for life.
Dehydrated skin on the other hand is a temporary condition. Even people with an oily skin type can be dehydrated from time to time. When that happens, your skin can feel itchy, tight and scaly. Most people reach for a moisturizer to get rid of the dryness. But that may just make it worse. Here's why; Your Skin Needs Oil To Seal In Moisture.
Your skin is made up of about 30% water. Most of that moisture is stored in the two lower layers of skin. The top layer - the epidermis - can't draw down into those layers to take up moisture. The only way moisture travels up to the epidermis is when it's carried there by new cells pushing up into the top layer. Once those new cells bring moisture up, the epidermis must lock it in. Your skin produces a film of water and oil to seal in the moisture. It's called the 'hydro-lipid barrier'. Creams are not able to 'lock in the moisture' as it is water based, oil is the only product that can 'lock' in the moisture necessary to keep skin hydrated. When the hydro-lipid barrier breaks down, water evaporates too quickly from the epidermis. And your skin becomes dehydrated. The best way to treat this condition is a blend of oils specially formulated to lock in moisture, hydrate & plump the skin.
Pure and Precious Face Oils are perfect for these conditions. Too much exposure to harsh winds or intense sun can strip the protective hydro-lipid barrier. Your diet can also sap moisture. Dry processed foods, too much sodium and excessive alcohol and caffeine will all leave you dehydrated.
Medications like diuretics and cold and flu remedies will also dry out your skin. What can you do? Using moisturizer can make dehydration worse!
Here's what really works. Here's How To Lock In Your Skin's Moisture;
First, drink water to moisturise your skin from the inside out. It insures that the deep layers of your skin have the moisture needed to produce new cells that hydrate the epidermis. Second, ditch moisturisers that make dehydrated skin worse. While drinking water is a good strategy for improving skin hydration, applying water to the skin is not. Many inexpensive moisturisers in drug stores contain a high percentage of water. That water just sits on top of your skin and quickly evaporates. It can leave your skin feeling worse instead of better. Dehydrated skin calls for products that replenish moisture but don't add water. That means your moisturizer must contain oils to seal in the skin's natural moisture.
