Quench Your Thirst!

Six water-loving ingredients to hydrate the skin

Many clients confuse their dehydrated skin for dry and vice versa. It is important to note that dehydrated skin is a skin condition caused by lack of water in the skin, and anyone with oily, dry, or combination skin can have it. Dry skin, on the other hand, is a skin type characterized by a lack of oil. On the bright side, dehydrated skin is usually a temporary concern that can be treated with the right ingredients. The best way to treat this condition is to encourage more water-rich foods into your clients’ diets and hydrating skincare ingredients into their regimen. Here are the top thirst-quenching substances to look out for when treating dehydrated skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

This is a water-wonder for your client’s dehydrated skin. Also known as hyaluronan, hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally produced by your body to lock in water and help keep your skin nice and plump. Due to aging and environmental aggressors, our skin’s HA levels can begin to take a bit of a dip. Fortunately, this ingredient can be found in many products like creams, gels, serums, supplements, and injectables to help bring your clients’ skin back to life.

The challenge for skin therapists often lies in pinpointing the cause of dehydration, which is typically a combination of many different factors, some of which are beyond our control.
