Here's how you can treat dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin affects the skin of all types, not just dry. Your skin becomes very dry and is in desperate need of moisture. When your skin cells are in need of water, that is when your skin becomes dehydrated. Dullness, dark circles, skin sensitivity, inflammation and itchy skin are some of the symptoms of the issue you need to be on the lookout for. If you don't know if this is the problem you are facing, all you have to do is pinch your cheeks. If it doesn't bounce back that could be an indication it is dehydrated. Here are a few ways to treat the issue.

Exercise on a daily basis

Working out regularly will make you flush out all the toxins from your body and even help your skin sweat it all out. This will in turn nourish and hydrate your skin which makes it easy for you to deal with dry skin issues. Make sure you take a good shower once you're done exercising.

Regularly exfoliate your skin

When there is a build up of dead skin cells, it impacts how much moisture your skin is able to absorb. Therefore, it is essential to make sure your skin is clean and fresh at all times. Exfoliate at least twice a week. You can try Dermalinfusion or Hydrafacials to get the job done.




Having a dry skin might also indicate that you don't have a proper diet to help your skin hydrate itself. A good diet can play a very important role in skin health and it pays off while you sleep which is when your body regenerates and benefits most richly from good diet. Make sure you include flaxseeds, egg yolks, walnuts, etc. in your diet.
