Your skin might get dehydrated due to lack of water inside the skin cells. There are numerous reasons for such a condition.
Although it is an all-year round problem, during winter months symptoms may be more severe.
The fact is that dehydrated skin condition comes and goes based on lifestyle and diet.
-Skin is tight, dull, flacky, itchy, sensitive or may show signs of premature ageing.
-Can feel oily and dry simultaneously.
-Absorbs moisturisers really quickly.
-Pores can be large or small.
-Acne and blackheads still appear.
-Poor skincare routine.
-Bad lifestyle habits: smoking, drug taking, high salt diet, caffeine, alcohol, not drinking enough water, not enough sleeping, fast food.
-Environmental factors: cooler winter, too much sun, too much air conditioning, central heating, flying.
-Sign of internal disease.
-Consequence of ageing.
-Rehydrate your body, drink plenty of fresh, clean water every day.
-Quit smoking, alcohol and caffeine.
-Eat more fresh vegetables.
-Add foods rich in Omega 3 into your diet, like flaxseeds, avocados, walnuts. Omega 3 helps to normalize your skin fats and prevent skin dehydration.
