HOW TO REMEDY DRY AND DEHYDRATED SKIN

Have you ever considered that your dry skin isn’t actually dry? Dry-feeling skin can be a sign that your skin is dehydrated. Many people confuse the two, but they’re not the same. When it comes down to it, dehydrated skin needs hydration while dry skin needs moisturization. Here’s how to tell the difference and remedy your skin situation. 

WHAT DEHYDRATED SKIN LOOKS LIKE

Dehydrated skin—even when it’s properly moisturized—feels tight and looks dull. This happens because it lacks water. Just as water hydrates the internal body, it is also needed to hydrate the skin. Dehydrated skin is a common issue that can happen to anyone, even people with oily skin. It mainly occurs because of a dry climate and environmental factors like pollution or prolonged exposure to the sun. You might also experience dehydrated skin after taking certain medications, after using beauty products with toxic ingredients, or after frequent exfoliation.

HOW TO REMEDY IT:

You can resolve your issues with dehydration by increasing the water content of your skin. Do this by using all-natural products with humectants, or hydrating ingredients. We suggest starting a double-cleansing routine with our Purify + Condition Makeup Remover, which features plant-derived natural humectants like Aloe Vera. Follow up with the Soothe + Soften Cleansing Emulsion, a natural skin cleanser that contains the hydrating fatty acids of Coconut and Wintergreen plant extracts that counteract dehydrated skin.

WHAT DRY SKIN LOOKS LIKE

Dry skin may feel rough, itchy, flaky, or sensitive because it lacks sebum, the natural oils produced by the body. Dry skin is a skin type that typically worsens with age, as the body naturally produces less and less oil. When people with dry skin moisturize, they may notice that the products absorb quickly, leaving skin feeling dry again shortly after.

HOW TO REMEDY IT:

You can ease dry skin by increasing moisturization, or applying nourishing ingredients to the skin. We suggest a gentle cleansing followed by the emollient-rich Balance + Calming Toning Lotion to prep your dry skin so that moisturizers can effectively penetrate. Then, apply Nourish + Protect Antioxidant Moisturizer, which replenishes moisture and seals it in with natural botanicals like Avocado and Acai Berry.
