BENEFITS OF HYDRATING THE SKIN
1. Your skin looks more plump and supple
For one, having enough water content in our epidermis would not cause our skin to become dehydrated. When our skin is dehydrated, that isn’t a pretty sight. So improving hydration to our skin is actually the key to having plump, supple skin that is somewhat bouncy to the touch.
2. Your skin looks less dull and more healthy
Besides a build up of dead skin cells, dull skin is also caused by a lack of hydration. So to combat surface dullness, inject a dose of hydration to your skin. You may find the need for more hydration as you grow older though because like it or not, this dreadful skin condition also seems to become more pronounced as we age.
3. Your skin becomes less oily
Dehydrated skin is a key culprit for causing your skin to become oilier. How? When your skin becomes dehydrated, it sends signal for the glands to defend the skin and produce more oil. When that happens, you’ll find your skin oilier. So improving hydration in this case can cause your skin to become less oily.
4. Your acne is less aggravated
While acne is not exactly caused by oily skin, most acne sufferers can experience a worsening of their problematic condition when their skin gets oilier. But what they may not know is that their oily skin may have been prompted by dehydrated skin to begin with. This is exacerbated by drying products that are used to control their acne breakout. So this group of people can benefit from having more hydration boost to their skin either through an application of topical products or via a change of diet.
5. Your skin is less itchy and irritated
Dehydrated skin can cause itching, irritation and general discomfort to our skin. Try using a harsh body cleanser and then leave your skin alone. I guarantee you’ll experience some sort of itching especially in the night. And for those suffering from eczema or psoriasis, this can be very disconcerting. So improving hydration can prevent itchy and irritated skin, providing relief to those suffering from sensitive skin conditions.
6. Your foundation can adhere better
Have you been noticing that your foundation turns streaky after a few hours? Or maybe you’ve noticed that your foundation turns darker after half a day? All these makeup woes are caused by an excessive sebum production caused by dehydrated skin. Short of refreshing your makeup every few hours, a better approach would be to up your skin hydration.
