Dehydrated skin needs treatment from the inside as well as the outside. When skin cells are starved off valuable moisture, they lose their tone, flexibility and strength. When you see a greying pallour on someone’s complexion – it could be a sign of dehydrated skin.
This type of skin flakes too – which means important layers of dermis are being shed because of the lack of moisture. So how can you treat such severe skin complaint.
Well, it’s perhaps no surprise to hear that water is vital. Drinking around two litres a day is important to the health of the skin, so you need to make sure your water content is up. You also may need rest and better sleep – and a chance to review your diet. Look to up the amount of vitamins and minerals that you consume every day, and perhaps reduce the amount of gluten and dairy in your diet.
Topically, we recommend something like Babor Fluids FP Hydra Plus Active Fluid for dehydrated skin, which has been designed to provide a high concentrated boost of moisture to the most challenging of skins.
This is an active ingredient concentrate for dry, dehydrated skin. This effective concentrate hydrates dry skin lacking in moisture. A high-grade complex of hyaluronic acid and a polymer moisturizer supply intensive moisture and helps prevent moisture loss from the skin. Instantly gives the complexion a fresh and smooth appearance, and creates a protective film for long lasting moisture.
