Dry skin tends to love summer and hate every month from fall to spring. You won’t get breakouts, but you might get eczema or itchiness. It does not regenerate itself quickly, so you will have to use products that contain more active ingredients, and get facials where the aestheticians can use more aggressive products in professional lines that are not available retail. Hydration masks are highly recommended once or twice a week, and morning/night hydration serums can help to keep water in skin. With the use of the right serums and moisturizers, you can prevent premature aging. Putting a humidifier on at nighttime during the winter months can help too.

NOTE: Dry skin lacks oil. Dehydrated skin lacks moisture.

WHAT ARE THE VISIBLE SIGNS OF DEHYDRATED SKIN?

• Thick, rough texture of the skin
• Flaking skin around the nose and on the forehead
• Fine cracks in the skin

A: Healthy-looking hydrated skin
In healthy skin, there is moisture and a healthy waterproofing barrier.
The upper-most layer of the skin is healthy.

B: Damaged waterproofing barrier lets moisture escape
When the waterproofing barrier is damaged, moisture is no longer retained in the skin. It results in the skin being dehydrated and
feeling dry and tight.

C: Thick, rough and uneven stratum corneum

As the keratinocytes become less active in dehydrated skin, the stratum corneum (upper-most layer of the epidermis) becomes
thick, rough and uneven.
