Dehydrated skin? Here’s why, the remedies to fix it FAST and the Galénic products that I tried!
Dehydrated skin. Is your face in need of more hydration? Do you have tight, dry skin? This is a very common problem, especially during winter, for me included, especially since my skin also breaks out in spots….
WHY IS MY SKIN DEHYDRATED?
Skin dehydration has been well documented recently: our body is made up of 60% water, which decreases with age, to around 50%. Children, on the other hand, are about 80% water… and that explains why they have such soft skin! We are constantly losing water from our body: not just over time but also due to variations in temperature and air conditioning. So during summer our skin can get very dehydrated and ruin our beautiful looks! Argh!!
WHAT SHOULD BE OUR AIM?
We should be aware that we lose water with age, and so our skin’s beauty is physiological. But you can slow down the process by keeping your levels of hydration up. Also you should protect your skin from all external factors that could accelerate the loss of water (above all the famous ups and downs of temperature and air conditioning…). Basically, your skin should be constantly hydrated (never forget to take care of your facial skin!).
