Skincare for Dehydrated Skin
Dehydrated skin is unhappy skin, but getting enough water can be a daily struggle, especially in summer. We lose it in our sweat and we forget to drink it when our schedules get hectic. Our bodies send us reminders when we’re dehydrated, and some of these show up in our skin. So, it’s no wonder that dry, flaky and dull-looking skin is a very common skincare complaint. Cannabella provides a wide range of skincare products that can assist with combatting dehydrated skin.
Basically, dehydrated skin is a condition that occurs when the skin just isn’t getting enough H20. You might notice that it feels tight and itchy or it seems to lose its elasticity. Dehydrated skin is different from dry skin, as dry skin is caused by a lack of oil – not water. Make dehydrated skin a thing of the past with these skin-quenching tips and our revitalising range of moisture-restoring skincare products.
What contributes to dehydrated skin?
Skin can become dehydrated due to…
- Environmental factors (such as cold weather, wind, and low humidity)
- Aging (as we get older, our skin loses its ability to hold onto water)
- Diet (not drinking enough water or consuming too much alcohol or salt)
- Skincare products (using products that strip the skin of its natural oils)
- Medical conditions (such as eczema or psoriasis)
Tips to rehydrate your skin
You’ll see this one coming: drink plenty of water! If you’re prone to forgetting then try setting reminders on your phone throughout the day, or upsize the water bottle you usually use. But hydrating doesn’t have to be a chore, either. Adding fresh mint, raspberries, slices of lemon, orange or cucumber into your water bottle or glass will make sipping more satisfying. Water with ice is a lifesaver in summer, and in winter we recommend stocking up on your favourite (caffeine-free) herbal teas to turn this healthy habit into a more rewarding ritual. Fruits and veggies are very hydrating, so adding more colour to your plate will colour your complexion, too.
To retain more water, try to stay out of the sun, avoid using hot water, harsh soaps and alcohol-based skincare products, as these can all be drying. We’ll show you which products will do wonders.
Quench thirsty skin with Cannabella’s Complex COQ10 Serum
Serums deeply penetrate the skin and hyaluronic acid is a super moisture-restorer (this natural substance can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water!) so our Complex COQ10 Serum is a game-changer. It contains Coenzyme Q10 – a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from environmental stressors. It’s also packed with vitamin E, another powerful skin soother.
Use it as a standalone product, or under your moisturizer for extra nourishment.
Show some head-to-toe love with La Tropica Body Serum
Dehydrated skin doesn’t just affect the face – replenish from head to toe with our La Tropica Body Serum. It contains a soothing blend of natural oils that are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, which will go a long way in skin hydration and rejuvenation.
Tip: exfoliating your skin first will help serums penetrate even deeper, so you will get added value from your products if you gently exfoliate first.
Renew body and soul with Hemp Jelly
For dehydrated skin, our Hemp Jelly is a simply heavenly pick. This body jelly is gloriously infused with shea butter and beeswax, making it super calming, hydrating and moisture-rich. Of course, it has a generous dose of hemp seed oil, rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A. All the good stuff.
These skincare products are designed to work together to provide optimal hydration and nourishment, so they’re just perfect any time your skin is feeling tight, dry or just “blah”.
And now, time to pour ourselves a big glass of water!
