Normally our skin retains water and doesn’t lack hydration. However, our skin appears often during winter dry and itchy. This feeling is indicative of dehydrated skin. Apart from intense weather conditions, our skin is also dehydrated due to other factors, such as unhealthy diet, drugs and the use of wrong skin care products, such as skin cleansers.
Dehydrated skin can be relieved by skin products, which aim to hydrate our skin and replenish our skin’s moisture barrier. As a result, our skin doesn’t lack water. Moreover, we should have a healthy diet full of fruit, water and protein-rich and antioxidant-rich foods. Protein sources in our diet increase our collagen levels. Collagen is a protein that provides strength and structure to our skin. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which are produced among others in our body, by sun exposure and alcohol and cause 80% of skin ageing. Lastly, it is important to drink moderate amounts of alcohol and caffeine, because alcohol and caffeine increase the skin’s dehydration. Using the right skin care routine, the dehydrated skin will become shiny, soft and firm.
