How do you know if your skin is dry or dehydrated?

How to Tell If Your Skin Is Dry or Dehydrated

What’s the difference between dry and dehydrated skin and how do you fix it? It sounds like pretty much the same thing doesn’t it, but dry and dehydrated skin have completely different underlying causes.

The market is awash with lotions and potions with moisturising and hydrating properties but how do you know you’re choosing the right one for your skin?

What is the difference between dry and dehydrated?

Dry skin is a skin type, that lacks oils and lipids in the outer layer, called the stratum corneum. However, we can all suffer from dehydrated skin, even if you have oily or combination skin. Dehydrated skin is caused by a lack of water which shows on the skin’ surface.  Let’s look at the differences between the two.

What are the signs of dehydrated skin?

Appears flakey

Feels rough

Dull dry appearance

What are the causes of dehydrated skin?

Lack of water

Over exposure to the sun

Hot and cold extremes – water and air

Air-conditioning and central heating

Ageing

How to correct dehydrated skin?

The first thing that comes to mind is to drink more water. If you compare a nice juicy plum to a prune, then you should catch our drift! Drinking more water is a key factor but as skin is the last organ to show a difference in hydration then we need to look at a more positive action.

Adding H3O Hydration to your water will give attitude to the water you drink. This revolutionary supplement drink contains ionic minerals which aids the transfer of water through the gut wall, into the blood stream and on to cells to help create a healthy fluid balance. It also contains hyaluronic acid which can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and supplies a cushion between cells and elastin fibres for moist plump skin.

Adding Collagen Shots to your regime will provide a healthy supply of amino acid proteins. The combination of these proteins and the minerals in H3O Hydration will boost the Natural Moisture Factor of the superficial layers of the skin to give you a radiant glow.

What are the signs of dry skin?

Looks dull

Feels tight

Feels rough

Shows sign of premature ageing, fine lines, sagging skin and wrinkles

Dehydration can cause dry skin

How to correct dry skin?

This is a slightly more difficult task as it is a skin type rather than a condition but you can take action! Eat a diet rich in omega 3’s including oily fish, seeds, nuts and avocados. You should also try incorporating an Omega 3 supplement into your diet – we recommend our vegan Omega 3 Aliol which acts as a natural moisturiser.

How do I hydrate my skin overnight?

The body rejuvenates and renews while you sleep so it’s a perfect time to improve your hydration levels.  Take Collagen Shots and H3O Night Repair before going to bed. Those amazing amino acids in Collagen Shots combines with the electrolyte minerals, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants in our night time supplement to support your beauty sleep for gorgeous skin.

Is there anything else I can do to protect my skin?

Have a consultation at a good beauty or aesthetic clinic for advice on the correct skincare. Many cleansers are overly harsh and can cause dry or dehydrated skin while some moisturisers sit on the skin and do not penetrate to truly nourish and moisturise.

•  Use a gentle exfoliator or peel to remove dead skin

•  Avoid excessive alcohol consumption

•  Don’t smoke

•  Use good sun protection

•  Add oil to your routine, try coconut or argan oil to nourish body skin
