Keep your skin hydrated

 

If your face feels taught, rough and uncomfortable, then you may have dehydrated skin. Dehydrated skin causes a unique set of challenges which is best managed on two fronts: internal and external. Differing in symptoms from dry skin, the signs of dehydration are relatively easy to diagnose. Read on and learn a variety of ways in which you can tackle this common problem with relative ease.

Step 1

If you see horizontal lines on your face your skin is probably dehydrated.

Decide whether or not your skin is dehydrated or dry then treat accordingly. Run the side of your finger up your cheek, just below the cheek bone. Look closely in a mirror. If you see fine horizontal lines, then it’s safe to say that you are dehydrated.

 

Step 2

Focus in on internal factors of your lifestyle. Evaluate the quantity of pure water you drink on a daily basis then make it your goal to sip approximately 8 glasses of water a day. You may also like to add in herbal teas to your daily quota whilst abstaining from caffeinated drinks which will only dehydrate you further.

 

Step 3

Scrutinize your diet and factor in more Omega fatty acid foods like salmon and mackerel, which will give a much-needed boost to not only your skin but also your hair and nails. Cook with extra virgin organic coconut oil, high in Lauric Acid and Medium Chain Triglycerides, which assist in re-balancing the skin whilst restoring elasticity and that much needed comfort factor.

 

Step 4

Visit with your doctor. If your skin is still showing signs of dehydration after working on the steps above, it might be a good time to have your hormones checked. Declining hormones, an almost unavoidable aspect of ageing, can result in a loss of elasticity due to a reduction in the production of collagen.

 

Step 5

While making sure you are hydrated internally a good moisturizer is very important especially as you get older. LACURA skincare and beauty offers a wide variety of moisturizers for any skin type and age group.
