Dehydration is Not Dry

Most people confuse or misdiagnose their skin between dry and dehydration. Dry skin can be generic and is normally caused by not having enough sebum in the skin, while skin dehydration is from not having enough water.

Surface dehydration causes the skin to overcompensate by producing even more sebum or oil. The result? Not only is your skin still dehydrated, now it’s congested, which may result in acne and even acne scars.

1. Proper skin care routine. 

StepsRemarks
1. Deep Cleansing Always remember to use a makeup remover to thoroughly remove all makeup. Use a face wash designed for oily skin and pat dry the skin gently without vigorous rubbing. Avoid over drying cleanser with SLS (sodium laurel sulfate).
2. Serum, Moisturizer & Masque Look for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, sodium PCA, panthenol, sodium hyaluronic, and other active ingredients that can provide excellent water holding to the skin.
3. Exfoliation Use a grainy exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration.
4. Sun Protection Choose a broad spectrum sun protection with physical blockers, such as titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide. Look for SPF at least 30 and PA+++ for optimum protection.
5. Make-up Keep makeup as light as possible and use makeup only when absolutely necessary. Always use an oil free foundation or makeup products.

 

2. Promote healthy lifestyle
• Consume foods with healthy fats (essential fatty acids like almond, sunflower seeds etc).
• Reduce the consumption of salt as it removes water from body and skin.
• Quit smoking; avoid drinking caffeine drinks and alcohol as they dry your skin.
