Dehydrated skin and dry skin are not synonymous. Your skin type can be dry, oily or any blend of the two and also be dehydrated. Skin dehydration refers to the water content within the skin. When you’ve used harsh, dry soaps, are exposed to extreme weather conditions (such as wind, heat or cold), or any other kind of irritation, your skin can easily lose hydration. Many people think that the best way to treat oily skin is to suck all the moisture from their skin. The opposite is true. With every skin type, it’s best to maintain a healthy level of natural moisture; meaning those of every skin type should be using a daily moisturizer, such as SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture. This lightweight, hydrating and soothing moisture minimizes pores, nourishes and smooths the skin without being greasy.
In order to treat dehydration and find your skin’s unique hydration level, you will have to play around a bit with different products. If you’ve been happy with your current moisturizer but recently experienced an extreme weather condition or some type of irritation, adding a hydrating serum to your routine is your best option. Consider DermaQuest Skin Therapy Essential B5 Hydrating Serum. It's suitable for all skin types and provides a quick absorbing action. Its principal ingredient is sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), which has a molecular structure that retains moisture 50 times its own weight. It also contains herbal extracts that condition and heal damaged skin.
