What’s the no. 1 rule of an effective skincare routine? Never underrate the power of hydration. It might sound almost too obvious, but it really is the sine qua non of a healthy and beautiful complexion. Human skin contains approximately 64% water, so it’s no wonder that skin dehydration can hinder you from enjoying a radiant, supple and youthful complexion. How to prevent and treat skin dehydration effectively?
Skin dehydration & dry skin —
so similar and yet so different
Your complexion is dull, taut, flaky and itchy? Yes, skin dehydration can feel just like dry skin, but contrary to it, it is not a skin type, so don’t mistake it with having dry skin. Everyone can suffer from skin dehydration, including people with oily complexion.
Dry skin is short of lipids, but dehydrated complexion is different because it lacks water so reaching for oily products, which are focused on nourishing, won’t do the trick. To rehydrate your skin, try out the oil-free, organic certified formula of MÁDARA SOS Hydra Intense Rose Jelly. It has been designed to balance, calm and moisture dehydrated, stressed and problem-prone skin.
The connection between skin
dehydration and premature ageing
Dehydrated skin is less firm and more prone to forming deeper fine lines and wrinkles. Restoring optimal levels of skin moisture can visibly reduce facial wrinkles and prevent premature ageing. Reach for SOS Eye Revive Hydra Eye Cream & Mask to give some love to the delicate and especially prone to ageing eye contour area.
How to counteract the main
culprits of skin dehydration?
Skin dehydration can be experienced by anyone. Stress, poor eating habits, insufficient water intake, environmental pollution, sun exposure, weather, ageing… What you can do is to introduce some lifestyle changes such as drinking more water, eating a healthy diet full of water-rich fruits and veggies, using sun protection and utilising other ways of protecting your skin from the negative effects of different stressors.
If you have dehydrated or dry skin, what your complexion needs are products that increase the hydration of your skin and at the same time decrease transepidermal water loss. So besides different lifestyle upgrades, remember to adjust your skincare routine by including deeply moisturising products like moisture-locking and antioxidant-rich SOS Hydra Repair Intensive Serum and award-winning SOS Hydra Recharge Cream. If your skin is extremely dry and reactive, you may want to try the rich formula of SOS Rich Hydra-Barrier CICA Cream, which reinforces the skin barrier and offers a non-greasy protective layer.
What’s the link between skin
dehydration and microbiome imbalances?
Skin microbiome is much more than just a popular buzzword. Its imbalances (dysbiosis) have been associated with various skin conditions. Besides causing skin dehydration, skin microbiome imbalances can lead to irritation and even issues like eczema and allergies.
Surprisingly, poor condition of your skin microbiome can also trigger acne. That’s why gentle cleansing is so important. Always remember to use products that do not strip the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This way you’ll avoid causing increased sebum production and clogged pores, which often lead to the appearance of blemishes.
Probiotics, like Lactobacillus lysate found in SOS Hydra Intense Rose Jelly, have the power to rebalance skin’s microbiome and strengthen its protective layer, leaving your skin stronger and better equipped to face all the challenges that come its way.
