What Does Dehydrated Skin Look Like?

If you’re someone who is ‘into’ their skincare, you’re likely to be familiar with dehydrated skin. Dehydrated skin is a common skincare concern that can affect people of all skin types. But what exactly is it, and how does it differ from dry skin? 

In this blog post, we’ll dive into the nitty-gritty of dehydrated skin, its causes, and the secrets to turning your skin into a well-hydrated oasis. We’ll also introduce you to Seventy Hyal skin booster, an effective solution for dehydrated skin. So, what does dehydrated skin look like? Let’s dive right in and find out!

Identifying dehydrated skin

For us to know how to spot dehydrated skin, we need to truly understand what it is and how it sets itself apart from dry skin. Think of dehydrated skin as a thirsty plant that has been exposed to the sun for too long. It’s thirsty, in desperate need of hydration, and needs a refreshing drink! The common signs of dehydrated skin include an uncomfortable feeling on your skin, a dullness to your complexion, dark circles, and fine lines. 

Top tip: You’re likely to spot dehydrated skin through these signs and to determine if you’re right, pinch a small area of your skin. If it takes a while to return to its original state, your skin needs hydrating

Causes of dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin isn’t something that randomly occurs, there are normally some common reasons for this:

  • Air conditioning strips our faces of moisture
  • The weather – seasonal changes, especially the introduction of harsh weather conditions, can have a huge impact on the moisture levels in your skin.
  • Lack of sleep
  • Not drinking enough water – think about it, if you’re not drinking water, your skin isn’t either!
  • Showers that are too hot.

Dehydration VS dryness

Now, let’s distinguish between dehydrated and dry skin. 

Dry skin lacks oil, while dehydrated skin lacks water. Even individuals with naturally oily skin can experience dehydrated skin, and this lack of water can make your skin look tired and enhance the appearance of fine lines.

Common signs of dry skin:

  • Tightness
  • Lack of oil
  • Itchiness
  • In severe cases: psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis.

Common signs of dehydrated skin:

  • Tight and uncomfortable
  • Dull complexion
  • Appearance of fine lines 
  • Dark circles
  • Redness/inflammation
  • Congestion.

Tips for hydrating your skin

Okay, so it’s time for the all-important tips on how to hydrate your skin!

  • Drink more water – your bottle of water needs to become your best friend. Hydration starts from within so you need to up your water intake regularly. The UK Government advises drinking 6-8 glasses of water per day (around 1.2 litres in total, which equals 6 x 200ml glasses or 8 x 150ml glasses). Keep this in mind when it comes to helping your dehydrated skin
  • Avoid harsh cleansing routines – Using harsh cleansers on dehydrated skin can strip away more of your natural oils and leave your skin feeling dry and tight. Ideally, your cleanser should be gentle, fragrance-free, and alcohol-free
  • Use hydrating skincare products – Be sure to use skincare products that will hydrate your skin. Moisturisers, serums, and hyaluronic acid are perfect for skin hydration. They help your skin retain moisture, ensuring it stays plump and happy. 

Dehydrated skin tip: It is often recommended by experts to avoid or limit caffeine and alcohol, and to increase your intake of water and water-rich fruits and vegetables. This can help prevent the body (and therefore the skin) from becoming dehydrated.
