If you’re suffering from dehydrated skin, it’s a skin problem that needs to be addressed straight away. One of the most important things to do is invest in good skincare and work out what’s causing it.
Winter can be to blame. This time of year is known to see a spike in dehydrated skin cases. Often confused with dry skin, dehydrated skin is the loss of moisture from the surface of the skin.
According to Good Housekeeping, it’s not a skin type but rather a condition usually caused by external elements like weather, pollution or can be diet-related too.
And if you’re prone to an oilier complexion, don’t shrug off dehydrated skin as something that won’t happen to you. Dehydration can be on all skin types, for example, you could have oily skin type with dehydrated surface skin tissue.
It’s also caused by using the wrong products for your skin and combining the wrong ingredients onto your skin, such as using harsh retinols and active products like menthol peppermint or even the overuse of bristle cleansing tools.
The biggest issue with ignoring dehydrated skin is that it is actually a lot easier to target and fix compared to deeper skin type issues.
Dry skin is a skin type which can be addressed with diet and skincare. However, dehydration is usually an issue on the surface of the skin only, often with an oily layer underneath. Unless you have an illness, bad diet or your body contains toxins from activities such as alcohol or cigarette smoking, dehydrated skin can be addressed very quickly with products.
