Do you have problems with dehydrated skin? Apply 5 easy tricks for instant solutions
Written by SOT.COM.AL 29 Nëntor 2023
A few simple adjustments to your skin care routine can help to deeply hydrate and achieve a plump, glowing and visibly nourished appearance. Rhea Cartwright shares 'secrets; approved by experts to transform dehydrated skin for good
Dehydrated skin is often the biggest skin complaint celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas sees in her clinic. Caused by a lack of water, it can affect everyone, regardless of skin type.
The best way to determine if your skin is dehydrated is to gently pinch the skin on your cheek. If you feel like you have fine lines, you are probably dehydrated. In general, dehydrated skin may appear inflamed or irritated and, when tightened, may not spring back.
1. Clean in cold
"A big mistake people make with their skin is scrubbing or showering with water that's just too hot," explains Vargas.
Extreme temperatures of any kind can throw off the skin's delicate balance, which can lead to uncomfortably dehydrated skin. Be sure to clean with a gentle, non-stripping product and warm rather than hot water, which will effectively remove the day's grime. To make your cleansing routine work even more, consider using a lactic acid cleanser as well, which will help remove dead skin cells, brighten skin and allow your serums and oils to penetrate deeper.
2. Introduce yourself with a facial oil
While face oils alone aren't hydrating, Vargas says they can help lock in moisture by creating a seal on the skin.
Oils strengthen the outermost layer of skin to retain moisture, keep skin balanced and control oil production. They can be used both day and night, depending on the skin type. If you are starting out, I would try one to start at night, until you see how it absorbs into your skin. Choosing nutrient-dense oils that contain powerful antioxidants helps to further protect the skin, and RéVive's Vitamin C-infused Renewal Hydrating Oil Triple Defense does just that, while fortifying the skin with a peptide bio-regenerative.
3. Layer your moisture
The best way to lock in moisture is to layer proven moisturizing ingredients on top of each other. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful ingredient that plumps skin, minimizes fine lines and reduces the signs of dehydration – but it must be applied correctly to see its full potential. For best results, Vargas says hyaluronic acid-based serums should be applied to damp skin, as the hero moisturizer draws moisture from the air. She suggests spritzing on a face mist that contains moisture-binding ingredients like glycerin or aloe vera before you apply your serums to help lock in water, too—try keeping it in the fridge for a cooling cryotherapy shot.
4. Don't neglect your skin's barrier
For your skin to retain as much water as possible, Vargas says it's essential to have a strong, healthy, and functional skin barrier.
A damaged skin barrier means that the outermost layer of skin is unable to do its job of protecting against external pollutants and stressors, as well as reducing transepidermal water loss. So we are much more sensitive to dehydrated, irritated or dull skin.
If you suspect your skin barrier is compromised, focus on using strengthening and healing ingredients. U Beauty's The Barrier Bioactive Treatment is designed to be used as the final step in your evening routine to replenish and restore delicate skin, while Tata Harper's Superkind Bio-Barrier Serum uses ceramides and a post-biotic complex to maintain your skin balanced.
5. Protect from the elements
Humidity, strong winds, dry heat, high altitudes and, of course, overexposure to the sun can deplete your skin's moisture levels, so keeping a moisturizer is a must.
"The function of the day cream is to serve as a barrier between your skin and pollution in the environment. Creams contain butter, oils and waxes, but they also contain water. An emulsifier is used to combine all the ingredients to bind together and penetrate the skin and keep it hydrated," explains Vargas, adding that the emulsifiers in the cream help the product penetrate deep into the dermis. and give more moisture to the area.
If your skin tends to be drier, layer your sun protection over a nourishing face cream, such as Augustinus Bader's highly rated cream, or, if you're prone to oiliness, choose an SPF that contains nourishing ingredients alone .
