Lets face it, we all have a love hate relationship with winter, its all fun and games until your face starts freezing. Our skin shares the same sentiments. The colder it gets, the lower the temperature drops and the thinner the air gets which is not fun for our skin, especially the skin on our face which is the thinnest and most delicate part and more prone to dehydration.
Many of us can’t even tell when our skin is dehydrated so let's start from the top. Dehydrated skin is a skin condition, it’s mostly caused and controlled by external factors (heat, air, over exfoliating, chilly weather or wind; especially during colder seasons). For someone with dehydrated skin you'll notice your skin feeling tight, flaky, with visible wrinkles. Along with that you’ll notice oiliness or shine, which could also mean that your skin is congested, a gift that keeps on giving right !
Let's talk about the good stuff! How to look after dehydrated skin! While dry skin wants oil, dehydrated skin wants water. Inside and out! Increase your daily water intake and add a hydrating serum to your daily routine, of course our number one pick is the Hydro Serum from Happy Glow Skincare. You also want to look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin, which the Rose Toner from happy glow skincare contains along with other hydrating skin loving ingredients. To boost your results apply your hydrating products to damp skin, not dry.
Keep in mind, being that dehydration is a skin condition for every skin type; even oily skin can be dehydrated. So it's very possible for your skin to be both dry AND dehydrated. Sounds like a hot mess right! If this sounds like you, the key is to use a combo of water and oil to bring back that healthy, happy and plump skin.
