Dehydrated Skin (Water Dry)

A Skin Care Tip From BI Resident Skin Diva, Sherilyn Rhymes

Characteristics:  a skin condition that develops from lifestyle/environment. The skin has an inability to retain water resulting in a breakdown of normal skin functioning.  Occurs in all skin types.

Causes:  Climate, Stress, Environmental Pollutants, Medication, Improper Diet, Low Water Consumption, Sun Exposure, Improper Skin Care Products.

Results:  Dullness, Flakiness, Blotchiness, Sensitivity, Premature Aging.

The solution?  Milky Cleansers ; Exfoliation with enzymes or mild acids;  Cream or gel based masks; Serums & Lotions that attract water.

Ingredients to look for:  Hyaluronic Acid/Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycosaminoglycans, Sodium PCA, Glycerin, Honey, Panthenol. Clinical Treatments:  should flood the skin with humectants & replenish the proper amount of moisture.  Consult your Esthetician to select the products/professional treatments best suited for you. If you have any questions or don’t have an Esthetician, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help you.
