About dehydrated skin

So recently I got skin needling done from my stubborn acne scars.

the lady said my skin was well hydrated and that alot of people she sees have dehydrated skin.

I didn't mention that I was a skincare brand owner but I felt that was a huge compliment that what I was making was working.

so what causes dehydrated skin?
external factors like overconsumption of alcohol and caffeine and not enough water. eating a very unhealthy diet and seasonal changes.

how to tell if have it?
your skin may feel dull, itchy, darker under eye circles and more prone to fine lines. it's a skin condition not type and different to having dry skin which is a lack of oil in the skin. even oily or combination skin can be dehydrated. its a lack of water in the skin which can lead to more oil production and break outs .

what to use?
HYALURONIC ACID
it not only draws water back into the skin but holds 1000 times its weight in water which means it's key for dehydrated skin. ours has a combination of low and high molecular weight for best results.

HUMECTANTS
like glycerine or Propanediol. you find these in face creams or serums. it's a key ingredient that helps deliver skincare actives and plant extracts to the dermis. I prefer Propanediol over glycerine as it has a less sticky feeling. generally if a product is sticky then its not a bad thing. means it's high in humecants. although most people don't like stickiness.

do you think you could have dehydrated skin?
