Dehydrated skin is a temporary condition caused by disrupted skin barriers. Unlike dry skin, this condition can be improved with proper care. Dehydrated skin often has fine pores, is thin and feels flaky and tight. A pale complexion and a tendency to breakouts are further signs. This condition results from an imbalance in the hydro-lipid film, which promotes moisture loss. Causes can be environmental factors such as UV rays, cold, diet and too aggressive skin care.
Dehydrated skin can occur in any skin type, sometimes making it difficult to differentiate between skin types and conditions.
Characteristics: thin, dry, rough skin feeling
Structure: very fine pores, slightly cracked & flaky
Complexion: sallow, dull, pale
Holistic care tips
Since dehydrated skin is a temporary condition, you can achieve quick results with the right care. It is important to use natural care that does not contain any chemical additives that further attack your skin barrier. Pay attention to vitamin-rich care that is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants to bring your hydro-lipid coat back into its healthy balance!
Natural oils are also wonderful for caring for dehydrated skin because they have a variety of vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids that strengthen and protect your skin barrier so that your skin can store the moisture that is so important to it. Oils also form a kind of protective film on your skin, which protects it better from external radicals, as it is more vulnerable to attack in its dehydrated state and this can otherwise lead to impurities on your skin.
