When it comes to your skin, you may think having “dry” skin also means that it’s “dehydrated”. That’s not the case since they are two different skin conditions. Dry skin is a permanent skin type whereas dehydrated skin is a temporary condition. In fact, it is possible for someone to have “dehydrated” skin that is also oily. By using Beyond Glow products in your skin routine, you will be using products that help to balance moisture and natural oils in the skin, to keep your skin feeling and looking healthy.
Dry Skin: Your skin is considered dry when you don’t produce enough oil resulting in the skin barrier function to be compromised and prone to inflamed, dry and red skin. Overall, this means that your complexion lacks lipids or natural oils and it’s difficult to retain moisture.
Signs of Dry Skin:
- Redness or irritation
- Flaky appearance
- Increases the occurrence of eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis
Tips on How to Improve Dry Skin:
- Develop a delicate face washing method, avoiding hot water
- Be consistent with using moisturizer
- Exfoliate to remove any leftover dry skin
- Use a humidifier when indoors
Dehydrated Skin: Your skin is considered dehydrated when the top layer of the skin lacks water instead of oil and can occur no matter the type of skin you have. Unlike dry skin, dehydrated skin is caused by external elements such as temperature, alcohol, medications, sun, and smoking.
Signs of Dehydrated Skin:
- Appearance of wrinkles
- Loss of elasticity
- Dark circles under your eyes
Tips on How to Improve Dehydrated Skin:
- Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and warm water
- Apply a moisture essence
