What is dehydrated skin?

A lack of water within the top layers of the skin’s surface causes it to dehydrate, making the skin look dull, feel tight and pores look enlarged. Dehydration will also accelerate the signs of ageing, including fine lines.

This skin condition can affect even combination or oily skin types.

How is dehydration caused?
  • environment and pollution
  • weather temperature changes
  • incorrect beauty product use
  • central heating
  • lack of water intake
  • not using SPF all year round
  • air conditioning
  • showering in hard water or chlorine

can all lead to skin dehydration and ageing.
