3 Signs That Prove That Your Skin Is Dehydrated

Dehydrated, dry, or simply tired skin? Make a difference by taking into account these 3 signs that do not deceive.

Dehydrated skin lacks water, this phenomenon can occur regardless of skin type, whether oily, dry, or combination but it is reversible. Conversely, dry skin is an irreversible genetic condition, it is due to a lack of lipids (fats) in the skin barrier. As for the distinctive signs of tired skin, they are similar to those of dehydrated skin, but we note the marked appearance of dark circles and puffiness that disappear once the body and mind are rested. To never doubt these three conditions again, here is how to reliably spot dehydrated skin.

A Dull, Tired Appearance That Persists

This is the first sign that should alert to the state of dehydrated skin. Dehydrated skin naturally lacks radiance for several reasons: its surface is rough and much less smooth, it suffers from reduced blood microcirculation (its nutrient and oxygen supply is therefore at its lowest), cell renewal is slowed down and an accumulation of dead cells occurs on the surface of the skin barrier. All of these characteristics will cause light to refract unevenly on the surface, giving the skin that dreaded dull, tired look.

The Accentuation Of Wrinkles And Fine Lines

Hydrated skin is smooth, plump skin that doesn’t care about fine lines and wrinkles. When it lacks water, the skin lacks elasticity, sags, and its surface deteriorates. Signs of aging, or simply expression digging into the skin, are therefore much more visible. Fortunately, good internal and external hydration (with the use of creams and serums rich in hyaluronic acid, for example) can quickly remedy this.

Sensitivity And Blemishes

Dehydration can make the skin fragile, reactive and promote the appearance of imperfections because it is prone to inflammation. We notice that dehydrated skin faces an overproduction of sebum which clogs the pores and leads to imperfections (blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, etc.). On the other hand, the natural barrier of the skin is compromised, and there is a vulnerability of the skin which can accentuate the problems of acne.
