Dehydrated skin can be difficult to manage. It’s particularly frustrating when it changes your appearance, or makes you look a bit sickly. It’s one of the hardest traits to cover up because it doesn’t just arise from a surface blemish, but from the very condition of your skin.

Keep Hydrated

Your body can only use what you take into it. If you’re always thirsty, you’re always dehydrated. Dehydration doesn’t just occur when you have so little water your life is threatened. It also includes those who simply don’t drink enough water on a regular basis. This can have both short- and long-term health effects.

Keeping hydrated will allow your body to keep your skin more hydrated. The benefits don’t just stop there. Developing a good habit of keeping hydrated can also improve your breath, ease cramps, reduce fever and chills, help you control your appetite, improve your immune system, and reduce the frequency of headaches.

This said, many people who drink plenty of water still struggle with dry skin and dry scalp. This can come down to genetics, but there are treatments that can help.

HydraFacial

HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that is actually very comfortable and soothing. It can be superior in many ways to certain alternatives because you can see the result immediately. You don’t need to wait for anything to take hold or wear off. The process refreshes skin, and it’s especially useful for skin that’s dehydrated, oily, or both.

A HydraFacial cleanses your skin and exfoliates it. Bits of dirt, grime, and grit are extracted, avoiding further damage to your skin that they can cause. Your skin is also hydrated and provided antioxidant protection.

One of the biggest benefits is that this can hydrate your skin and tone it while still maintaining its elasticity.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum

“Acid” can be a frightening word. Some acids can dissolve metal, whereas eggs, meat, and nuts contain acids that are quite safe to digest. Acids cover a wide range of possibility. Hyaluronic acid is a gentle acid that includes a humectant, or a moisture-binding ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid is a popular ingredient for many skincare products including serums and moisturisers. Hyarluonic acid is an all rounder ingredient, and can really help if your skin is dehydrated. At Premier Laser & Skin, we have an extensive range of skincare brands, some of which include amazing products containing this superstar ingredient.
