Controlling the ‘shine’ that you see on your skin throughout the day, may become a full-time pre-occupation. But are you making it worse with the products you’re using?
You may describe your skin as being oily when in fact it may be dehydrated.
Before you read on let’s clear a couple of things up. When I say dehydrated skin, I mean skin that is water parched. Dehydrated skin is a condition that affects your skin because of your lifestyle, the environment you live in and the climate. Your ‘skin type’ is something different. This is defined by your genetic makeup. Your skin will have a tendency to dryness or a tendency to oiliness
Knowing The Difference
Your skin barrier is the Hydrolipidic film. It protects your skin from the outside world. When this becomes damaged, your skin’s natural moisture (water) reserves escape leaving your skin looking and feeling parched. When your skin is dehydrated it is likely that you will have open pores. These are grey at the base, making your skin look dull. These open pores are mistaken for blackheads.
In addition, dehydrated skin presents with fine lines. Not wrinkles, but lines of dehydration. You may also experience congestion and spots on your chin, jaw line and cheeks, caused by dehydrated cells that do not contain enough fluid to efficiently flush out toxins.
Treating Dehydrated Skin
Drinking plenty of water is important to keeping hydration levels up. However this is not the sole factor for alleviating dehydrated skin.
