You may have slathered on the richest, thickest lotions hoping for some instant hydration, only to discover that your skin stays parched and lackluster.
If this sounds uncomfortably familiar, then this article is for you.
You deserve dewy, glowing skin and we plan on helping you to achieve it!
It’s very easy to confuse dry skin and dehydrated skin, but knowing the difference is really important for ensuring you know how to properly treat your skin.
Unlike dehydrated skin, which lacks water, dry skin has fewer oil glands, meaning your skin lacks oil. This lack of oil means you may not experience breakouts, but a dull, itchy complexion can be just as frustrating to deal with!
If you’ve been applying water-based lotions with no relief then you have been treating dehydration when in reality, your skin is dry.
Your skin needs oil! In fact, both dehydrated and dry skin types can benefit from oil, a tip is to apply your oil to slightly damp skin for deeper absorption and a hydration boost.
Dry skin can speed up the signs of aging so knowing what else may be contributing, apart from the incorrect products, is very important in managing it.
We mentioned adding an oil into your routine, but you want to be sure you’re adding in an oil that is specifically targeted towards dry skin.
Rosehip oil is the superstar oil you need for dry skin! Not only is rosehip oil deeply nourishing and moisturizing, it also has powerful anti-aging properties, helping to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Your skin will rejoice at the incredible range of antioxidants, fatty acids, and other nutrients in this wonder oil.
It doesn’t matter what excellent hydration you are treating your skin to externally if internally it’s a different story. Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of pure, filtered water a day (herbal teas count!) to ensure your skin cells are staying hydrated and plump from the inside out!
Hot water strips the skin of natural oils, which is the last thing your thirsty skin needs! Always be sure to rinse with lukewarm water and avoid hot water completely.
