Dehydration is defined as an excessive loss of body fluid or a deficiency of fluid within an organism. No matter what skin type you are, be it dry, normal, combination or oily, dehydration can still occur. This problem is often associated with concern that only happens to people with dry skin. Even oily skin can experience dehydration because when your skin is dehydrated what’s missing is water not oil.
What causes dehydration to the skin? As simple as prolonged exposure to sun, cold (that includes AC!) and wind. Taking long hot showers can also cause this problem. Other causes are; not drinking enough water, too much alcohol or caffeine intake, and smoking. One thing for sure, using harsh skincare is also the culprit of dehydration!
Dehydration can cause a lot of problems to your skin. Loss of skin elasticity and suppleness, discomfort, tightness, redness, fine lines and wrinkles to name a few. It’s also the major cause for your skin scaling and flakiness.
To tackle this problem, the simplest way is to drink at least 8 glasses of waters a day to make sure that your body receives the needed water level. For your facial skin in specific, you can try using moisturizer that contains lots of water such as Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.
What makes Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief so special is because it can deliver long-lasting hydration and bind water to the skin for up to 24 hours! The magic ingredients behind this product are hydrolyzed extension, hyaluronic acid fragments, and liposomes.
Moisture Surge even helps skin to maintain hydration in changing climates, leaving it soft and comfortable. Furthermore, it also protects from environmental damage which can lead to more dehydration.
