The summer holidays are drawing to a close and in addition to all of the wonderful memories you've collected, you have probably noticed that the holidays have left you with a dry, dull and dehydrated complexion!
Dehydrated skin is usually due to two factors: insufficient water intake and water loss. The summer elements can wreak havoc on your complexion and consecutive days of UV and sun exposure noticeably reduce the moisture in your skin. Air conditioning units also suck moisture from our skin by reducing the natural humidity in the air.
WHY HYDRATION IS CRUCIAL FOR THE SKIN
I cannot overemphasize the importance of hydrating your skin. The dermis contains 70% water so even small reduction in moisture levels has visible consequences. The skin is made up of three layers: The epidermis (outer layer), the dermis (underlying layer) and the subcutaneous tissue. A loss of hydration reduces the amount of lipids on the surface of the epidermis. The skin loses its ability to retain moisture which in turn reduces skin elasticity and firmness. When skin is dehydrated all the skin imperfections such as wrinkles, pigmentation or scars become more visible. Furthermore, when the skin is hydrated it flushes away toxins more efficiently and puts up a better fight against irritants and inflammatory bacteria.
By effectively hydrating your skin, you will achieve a smoother and more supple complexion. You will look radiant, rejuvenated and glowing, instead of lackluster and tired.
HOW TO RE-HYDRATE YOUR SKIN
Right about now you're probably thinking one thing: how do I re-hydrate my skin? Glad you asked!
In addition to drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, the most important thing you can do for your skin is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! A moisturizer restores hydration to your pores and provides your complexion with a silkier and more vibrant texture. I absolutely adore the Dr Irena Eris HYDRO-OLEO line of products. This products replenish lipids and contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid minimizes trans-epidermal water loss and boosts the outer skin layers ability to retain moisture from atmosphere.
