Dry, dehydrated skin can be a temporary condition or a lifelong concern. Dry skin can be genetically determined or a product of an increasingly stressful lifestyle coupled with continual exposure to the sun, wind and chemicals in the environment. It can also be caused by the use of inappropriate products on the skin: meaning it is extremely important that skin care professionals are highly trained in properly diagnosing dry, dehydrated skin for the most effective treatment and product regimen.
Dry, or dehydrated?
Before addressing the causes, it’s important to know the difference between dry and dehydrated skin.
- Dry skin, or alipoid skin, generally refers to skin that is lacking in oil
- Dehydrated skin is characterized by lack of moisture in the Stratum Corneum
Even oily skin can experience dehydration. As mentioned, dehydration is a lack of water, not oil. This means sebaceous oil activity can still be normal or even overactive in dehydrated skin.
Both dry and dehydrated skin can experience:
- Irritation, inflammation, itchiness and sensitivity
- A feeling of tightness or tautness
- A look or feel of roughness
- Slight to severe flaking and scaling
- Fine lines, severe redness and cracks that can sometimes bleed
Rejuvenating skin treatments can be used to reverse the first signs of ageing leaving a radiant, healthy glow.
