What is the most important rule of an effective skincare routine? Never underestimate the importance of hydration. It may seem overly obvious, but it is the sine qua non of a healthy and beautiful complexion. Human skin is 64% water, so it’s no surprise that dehydration can prevent you from having a radiant, supple, and youthful complexion. How can you effectively prevent and treat skin dehydration?
Skin dehydration and dry skin are both similar and dissimilar.
Is your skin dull, taut, flaky, and itchy? Yes, skin dehydration can feel similar to dry skin, but it is not a skin type, so don’t confuse it with having dry skin. Skin dehydration can affect anyone, including those with oily skin. Dry skin is deficient in lipids, but dehydrated skin is different because it lacks water, so reaching for oily products that are nourishing will not suffice. MADARA SOS Hydra Intense Rose Jelly is an oil-free, organic certified formula that will rehydrate your skin. 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 more prone to developing deeper fine lines and wrinkles.
Restoring optimal skin moisture levels can help to reduce facial wrinkles and prevent premature aging. SOS Eye Revive Hydra Eye Cream & Mask is ideal for treating the delicate and prone to aging eye contour area.
How to counteract the main culprits of skin dehydration?
Anyone can suffer from skin dehydration.
Stress, poor eating habits, insufficient water consumption, pollution, sun exposure, weather, and aging…
What you can do is make some lifestyle changes, such as drinking more water, eating a healthy diet rich in water-rich fruits and vegetables, wearing sunscreen, and using other methods to protect your skin from the negative effects of various stressors.
If you have dehydrated or dry skin, you should use products that increase hydration while decreasing transepidermal water loss.
Aside from other lifestyle changes, remember to update your skincare routine with deeply moisturising products such as the moisture-locking and antioxidant-rich SOS Hydra Repair Intensive Serum and the award-winning SOS Hydra Recharge Cream.
If your skin is extremely dry and reactive, try the rich formula of SOS Rich Hydra-Barrier CICA Cream, which strengthens the skin barrier and provides a non-greasy protective layer.
What’s the connection between dehydrated skin and microbiome imbalances?
Skin microbiome is much more than a trendy buzzword.
Its imbalances (dysbiosis) have been linked to a variety of skin conditions.
Skin microbiome imbalances can cause irritation and even eczema and allergies, in addition to dehydration.
Surprisingly, poor skin microbiome health can also cause acne.
That is why gentle cleansing is essential.
Always use products that do not deplete the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
You’ll avoid excessive sebum production and clogged pores, which can lead to the appearance of blemishes.
Probiotics, such as Lactobacillus lysate in SOS Hydra Intense Rose Jelly, have the ability to rebalance the microbiome of the skin and strengthen its protective layer, leaving your skin stronger and better equipped to face all of life’s challenges.
