10 Easy Ways to Combat Dehydrated Skin

Keeping our skin looking great is a lifelong task and unfortunately there isn’t a quick fix. But all hope is not lost, there are plenty of things we can do to help keep our skin looking youthful and bright.

One of the main factors that affects the health and vibrance of our skin is dehydration. Keeping skin well hydrated can help avoid problems such as dryness, dull and itchy skin.

I know what you’re thinking…I need to drink more water! Yes, it’s true drinking more water can help combat dehydration but there are other things you can do to help manage your hydration levels.

Our handy infographic shares the top ten reasons for dehydrated skin and our experts top tips:

Ever wondered why you pop to the loo more on nights out? Alcohol is a diuretic which causes your kidneys to remove extra water from your system, leaving you dehydrated. Expert tip: Match each alcoholic drink with a glass of water to maintain the balance. Over 1/3 of women notice alcohol affects their skin.

Heating dries out the air, which then turns your skin to replenish its moisture levels. Expert tip: Place a bowl of water near your radiators to maintain humidity levels.

Air-con can disrupt the natural moisture balance of your skin, causing it to dry and aggravating skin conditions such as eczema. Expert tip: If your office is air conditioned, make sure you get outside on your lunch break to give your skin a rest. Try keeping a facial water spray on your desk to rehydrate.
