How Do I Know if My Skin Is Hydrated?

May 11, 2018

how-do-i-know-if-my-skin-is-hydrated

Dry skin is your skin type. It’s when your skin inadequately produces natural oils. It is often confused with dehydrated skin, which is when the skin’s water content is depleted. If you have oily skin, you can still have dehydrated skin, because it is due to a lack of water, not oil. Signs of dry skin and dehydrated skin are similar. Dry skin is characterized more by being flaky, tight, and uncomfortable, while the signs  of dehydrated skin include: 

  • Itchy skin
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Looks dull

It can be difficult to tell the difference between dry and dehydrated skin, but a quick sign is that dehydrated skin absorbs moisturizer very quickly.

Fighting Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin is usually caused by external elements, such as being out in the wind and sun, stress, dehydration, or alcohol consumption. The effect is generally temporary, even if it is uncomfortable. Drink more water. Treating your skin with a little extra care can target dry and dehydrated skin. The best serum for dry skin includes products that help skin rehydrate like hyaluronic acid spray. Exfoliate gently to brighten up dull skin and promote new cell growth. Use warm water and mild cleanser.

Is Vitamin C Good for Dry Skin?  

Vitamin C speeds the body’s natural healing process and protects skin from damage. If your skin is dry, it helps you get a more even skin tone and reduces redness when your skin is irritated. It’s an excellent anti-oxidant. When combined with a sunscreen, your face has added protection against the damage from the sun. (Don’t use topical vitamin C as a sunscreen alone.)
