Dry vs. Dehydrated Skin: Listening to your skin’s message
Our skin is a crucial part of our body which protects us from the harsh sun rays, dust, dirt, etc. It needs to be taken care of constantly and very well for overall wellness. A skincare routine is a must as what you do to your skin from morning till night must be well-thought. The main reason why skin must be taken good care of is that there are dead skin cells that are shredded every day, dust, dirt, and excess oil that must be cleansed off regularly, or else they might cause skin problems such as dullness or breakouts.
How Dry skin is different from dehydrated skin?
I absolutely admire Mouni Roy’s overall personality and especially her skin. She is super gorgeous and has a fabulous skin as well. I recently saw that Mouni Roy is endorsing Bryan & Candy Luxury foaming body wash and wanted to try it out.
Though dry and dehydrated skin may sound similar, they are different. The basic difference is that dehydrated skin lacks water and dry skin lacks oil. Dehydrated skin can occur to any type of skin, be it oily or combination. How does skin become dehydrated? It is the consequence of not drinking water properly and when our diet lacks foods containing water like fruits, and vegetables. Our skin needs to be hydrated regularly or because of the hot weather, the water or moisture available in our skin will get absorbed.
Whereas with dry skin, it is a condition when you are born with it and is something that is constant. When the skin lacks the natural oily substance secreted by the body called sebum, the skin becomes dry. Sebum is a natural moisturizer for the skin and the hair.
How do dehydrated skin and dry skin appear?
Dehydrated skin will not be plump, supple, or elastic. It looks dull and tight. Hence it is more prone to wrinkles and fine lines. Dry skin appears flaky, rough, scaly, and even red.
There are tests to identify dehydrated and dry skin. This is very simple and self-conducted. You will have to pinch a small portion of your cheek gently. If it wrinkles, instead of holding the shape of our cheek, it means that the skin is dehydrated. If the skin around our mouth, nose, and near eyebrows appears to be flaky and itchy, it means it is dry skin.
Ways to quench the Thirst of dehydrated and dry skin:
1. Moisturize more
Moisture is what is needed for both dehydrated and dry skin because that is what is lost. Start your day and end your day with moisturizers and always bath with a good shower gel.
2. Use a humidifier in your room
Humidifiers can increase the humidity in the air. Hence, when there is high humidity around us, it does not suck the moisture from our skin.
Dead skin cells are usually found on the surface of our skin, and they need to be gotten rid off, or else they will disrupt the absorption of products that we use on our skin.
4. Hydrate internally and externally
It is very important that we apply some moisturizers to our skin to keep ourselves hydrated, but it is also essential that we consume water-related foods. Regular drinking of water or fresh juices and eating fruits and vegetables can enhance the health of the skin from the inside.
5. Use a good shower gel
The basic and most effective way to keep the skin healthy and hydrated is to use a good shower gel. I prefer to use BRYAN & CANDY foaming Body wash. The Provitamin B5 & pH 5.5 formula deeply nourishes the skin. It also contains super ingredient called PENTAVITIN which helps to maintain the skin’s moisture up to 48 hours. I have also used the shower gel and moisturizing bathing bar from BRYAN & CANDY which are equally good. The shower gel helps to ger rid of toxins, dirt, and impurities from the skin without drying out the skin.
