At least once you had a problem with itcy and tight skin. What did cross your mind then? Is your skin dry or just dehydrated?
- Our skin naturally produces oil and sweat. Other than those glands there are many cells responsible for keeping the skin elastic and hydrated. Dry and dehydrated skin appears when the top layer of the skin becomes so damaged that the moisture just ”runs away”.
Dry skin is a skin type. It can be a consequence of genetic, hormones (getting older), thyroid malfunction and even because of untreated dehydrated skin. The less sebum and oils skin produces the more the person feels dryness and tightening .
Dehydrated skin is a skin condition. It appears because of the lack of water and moisture in the skin layers. It can feel tightening and itchy. This skin condition usually appears because of strong dry wind, too much sun, bad diet or too much exfoliation.
If your skin is dry, use oil based product for they will regenerate the protecting top layer of the skin.
If your skin is dehydrated change your life style, drink more water, use water and hyaluron based products.
Always use an SPF protection that will stop the future loss of the skin moisture.
