Dehydrated skin is manifested by the loss of radiance, comfort and smoothness of the skin. The feeling of tight skin is one of the most obvious signs of skin dehydration.
There are a number of factors that can cause our skin to become dehydrated, such as:
- Environmental factors: cold, heat, sun, wind and pollution;
- Emotional factors: stress and fatigue;
- External factors: tobacco and alcoholic beverages;
- Cosmetic products: extremely aggressive products;
- Some treatments and medications.
But, there are basic mistakes you are making that leave your skin really dehydrated:
Drink little water
Our skin is made up of approximately 70% water and this is one of the most essential goods for our life and the health of our body. Drinking water is essential so that this percentage of water in our body does not change, otherwise it will be noticeable on our skin. So keep your water bottle handy and drink at least 1.5L of water a day.
Takes too hot and long baths
Bathing at high temperatures is the most common habit but also one of the biggest mistakes that help dry the skin, but that's not all, baths that are too long can also contribute to this effect. Always bathe in lukewarm water and avoid excessive exposure to water, so your skin doesn't lose nutrients and properties it needs to stay healthy.
Does not hydrate your skin
Moisturizing the skin is undoubtedly the habit that you should never give up, whether during the hottest seasons, but also in the coldest seasons. Over time, our skin loses properties and assets that must be replaced with moisturizing products, so that its youthful and healthy appearance is always maintained.
Use products that are unsuitable for your skin
The products you use, in addition to needing to be suitable for your skin type, to avoid allergies, must also be suitable for the area where they are applied. Never use body products on your face, this is the biggest mistake for your skin, because the skin of the face is not the same as the skin of the rest of the body and the use of the wrong product helps with dryness.
Wash your face more than twice a day
The face should be washed with water every day, however, too much is too much. Water ends up removing properties that the skin needs, such as oiliness, which should not be completely removed. Washing your face more than necessary also turns out to be one of the worst habits for our skin.
Exfoliates the skin too much
Exfoliating your skin is an essential process to ensure it looks good, but over-exfoliation can make your skin more sensitive, irritated, and dry. Each skin is different, and exfoliation should also be suitable for each skin type. Discover our facial and body scrubs here .
