Must Have Products for Dry or Dehydrated Skin
Skin that feels dry is uncomfortable, leads to dull skin, irritation, flakiness and exaggerated fine lines and wrinkles. But it can be hard to tell the difference between dry and dehydrated skin. And once you know which one you have, what should you do about it?
What is dehydrated skin?
Dehydrated skin is caused by not enough water content in the skin. It’s often caused by not drinking enough water, environmental changes or inadequate skin barrier function that leads to transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Dehydrated skin may appear irritated, congested or have exaggerated dark circles and wrinkles. Every skin type can have dehydrated skin—even those with oily skin.
Solutions to dehydrated skin can include drinking more water, but if TEWL is at play, the skin will be unable to hold onto hydration. Repairing the skin’s barrier with a plant-based skin care regimen will strengthen the skin and improve its ability to retain water.
What is dry skin?
Dry skin means your skin doesn’t produce enough oil to keep the skin moisturized throughout the day. You can diagnose dry skin often by the presence of flaky patches or itchy spots on the skin. Dry skin can be addressed with the right plant-based skin care regimen with the right ingredients that are similar the skin’s natural oils.
