There’s nothing worse than the feeling of itchy, red and dehydrated skin. Not only does it feel horrible, but its’ appearance alone can cause self-consciousness in anybody. Before understanding how to treat dehydrated skin, it’s important to know the difference between dehydration and simply dry skin. Dehydrated skin, unlike dry skin, is characterized by a lack of moisture; dry skin is just skin lacking in oil. So if you think your skin may be dehydrated, how can you go about returning it to normal?

  • Avoid rough scrubs and cleansing brushes; these can serve to further irritate your skin, and they can even be painful.
  • Ignoring the temptation to overload on perfume and other fragrances, especially those that contain retinol.
  • Staying away from extreme temperatures, such as anywhere near AC units or forced air heating. Also, wearing extra clothing when in frigid wind or blistering heat.
  • Vitamin B3 boosts ceramides and fatty acids in the stratum corneum when in the form of niacinamide, which has a positive impact on barrier function.
  • Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effect ingredients when considering skin hydration, especially when used multi-weight in a formulation.

As with any other skin condition, the application of moisturizer can only have positive effects; a useful moisturizer is necessary to maintain the health and wellness of your skin.
