Is Your Skin Dry or Dehydrated?

Learn How To Prevent and Treat This Conditions

Frequently associated, it is essential to differentiate dry skin and dehydrated skin. Remarkably different in nature, the best way of treating them can be quite distinct as well.

Have you ever wondered what sets dry and dehydrated skin apart? Dryness is caused by a low production of oil, making it an inherent trait. Conversely, dehydration comes from lack of water and can happen to any type of skin – even oily – for short periods. By understanding these distinctions, we can better diagnose our own complexion needs!

Have you ever felt your skin feeling tight or flaky? Chances are, it’s due to a lack of oil. On the other hand, if you’ve experienced dull looking skin, that most likely means there was an absence of water and is referred to as dehydrated skin. Unfortunately this type of condition can befall any individual regardless of their complexion; moreover external variables like atmosphere shifts, dieting habits, touring activities and alcohol consumption may add up in making one succumb to dehydration. Moreover – and just when we thought matters couldn’t become more confusing- our epidermis could end up having both dryness and hydration obstacles simultaneously.

It is generally accepted that drinking an adequate amount of water helps to keep skin hydrated and healthy, but there are also special skincare products and ingredients which can assist in this process.

How To Renew and Revitalize Dry Skin

Harness the power of skin-protecting oils like jojoba and rosehip seed oil to combat dry, flaky, tight skin. By incorporating a nightly hydration ritual with heavy moisturizers – sometimes called “slugging” – you can create an occlusive barrier for your face that helps trap in moisture all night long.

To revitalize dry skin, it is essential to mend and reinforce the moisture barrier over time. For this purpose, serums are an outstanding method for nourishing and restoring your complexion. We strongly advocate hyaluronic acid due to its hydration potentials as well as epidermal growth factor (EGF) for repairing barriers.

Pamper your skin with Indie Lee Daily Skin Nutrition, a nourishing facial oil that hydrates and tones after cleansing. Or try a Restorative Mask, an overnight moisturizing face mask to deeply hydrate and refresh the complexion.

How To Nourish Dehydrated Skin

Stop skin dehydration before it starts! Hyaluronic acid is the essential hydration agent to reach for, as it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, plumping and soothing your complexion. Additionally, lifestyle changes will help you keep your skin well-hydrated – drink more water daily and limit alcohol consumption. Together with hyaluronic acid, these steps should bring back healthy levels of moisture for happy and radiant looking skin.

Nourish and restore your dehydrated, parched skin with the 100%Pure Rose Water Face Mist. This mist infuses mixed molecule hyaluronic acid into the skin to provide long-term hydration that can be used each day. 

To maximize the replenishing and protective effects of your hyaluronic acid, pair it with a vitamin C serum during the day. Lock in all that goodness with a moisturizer specifically tailored to your skin type, then sit back and enjoy brighter, bouncier results.

Nourishing Tips for a Dry & Dehydrated Skin

Incorporating squalane into your skincare routine can be a healing experience for both dry and dehydrated skin. This incredibly powerful compound is naturally produced by our bodies, serving as an effective sealant that locks in hydration and creates a protective layer on the surface of your skin.

Prevent Dry or Dehydrated Skin with these Simple Tips and Tricks!

There is no doubt that SPF should be a must-have in any skincare routine, especially for those with dry and dehydrated skin. Choosing a high factor sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays but also pollution and blue light. Utilizing this type of protection can guarantee healthier and better looking skin long term.

In addition to skincare, there are many lifestyle choices that can also contribute to healthier skin. Running a humidifier overnight will help retain lost moisture in the air – especially during winter months. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables abundant with water is another great way to support your overall health.

Additionally, treating your face to a cool rinse will do wonders for the complexion since hot and warm water can stimulate dryness of the skin.
