Dehydration

Dehydration

Characteristics and Causes

Skin is dehydrated when water or moisture is lacking in the upper layers of the skin. Any skin type can experience dehydration and is more commonly found in dry skins as there is lack of natural oil to prevent the moisture loss. Adequate skin moisture is vital for a healthy skin.

Some typical symptoms of dehydrated skin are:

Tight and uncomfortable feeling
Surface fine lines
Rough feeling texture
May look dull


Dehydrated skin may be caused by internal or external influences.


Internal influences: Diets high in sodium (salt), smoking, alcohol consumption and medication all having a dehydrating effect on the body and the skin.


External influences: Warm, dry climates such as air conditioning, sunbeds, air travel, central heating or dry, arid weather climates can all suck precious moisture from the skin.


Harsh products: Soaps, alcohol based toners or excessive  exfoliation can all strip moisture (and oil) from the skin leaving it feeling tight. This is a prime indication your skin is dehydrated.
