Dehydrated skin

all you need to know

The phrase ‘dehydrated skin’ is so commonly used in the beauty industry – but do people really know what it means and how to treat it? Have a little read to find out all there is to know.

WHAT IS DEHYDRATED SKIN?

It’s simple really. Dehydrated skin means that your skin is lacking the amount of water it needs to function effectively. Rather than a skin type, like dry or oily skin, dehydrated skin is a skin condition – one that’s usually impacted by your diet and surroundings. Which is great news, actually, because that makes it super easy to prevent with a few simple lifestyle and skincare changes!

WHAT CAUSES DEHYDRATED SKIN?

Dehydrated skin is usually caused by external factors like harsh weather, a lack of fresh food in your diet, not drinking enough water, and drinking caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These all strip your skin of water, causing it to lose its natural glow and look less supple.
