Dry & Dehydrated Skin

Dry and dehydrated skin can leave your complexion looking dull and lifeless, but at Cres, we offer effective, non-invasive solutions to replenish and rejuvenate your skin. Our treatments are specifically designed to restore hydration and vitality, revealing a healthier, more radiant complexion.

Understanding Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Dry and dehydrated skin can be irritating and you might want to know what causes this problem. The common causes include environmental factors, aging, and lifestyle habits, and their impact on skin health can be a disaster, so don't just ignore it!

Dry and dehydrated skin are common conditions, but they stem from different causes and may require different approaches to treatment. Understanding the distinction and the various contributing factors is key for effective management.

Dry Skin

Dry skin, or xerosis, is typically a skin type characterized by a lack of oil or lipids in the skin. It can be caused by:

  1. Genetic Factors: Some people are naturally predisposed to having dry skin.

  2. Aging: As we age, our skin tends to produce fewer oils, leading to increased dryness.

  3. Climate and Environmental Factors: Low humidity environments, cold weather, and wind can strip the skin of its natural oils.

  4. Harsh Skincare Products: Overuse of soaps, cleansers, and skincare products containing alcohol or other drying ingredients can strip the skin of its natural oils.

  5. Hot Showers and Baths: Excessive bathing or hot showers can remove the skin's protective lipid layer.

  6. Health Conditions: Certain medical conditions like eczema, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, and diabetes can cause dry skin.

Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a condition characterized by a lack of water content. It can affect any skin type, including oily skin, and is influenced by several factors:

  1. Inadequate Water Intake: Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, affecting the skin's moisture levels.

  2. Dietary Choices: High consumption of caffeine or alcohol can dehydrate the body and the skin.

  3. Environmental Factors: Exposure to dry air, extreme temperatures, and air conditioning can sap moisture from the skin.

  4. Skin Barrier Damage: When the skin’s protective barrier is compromised, it can lose moisture more easily, leading to dehydration.

  5. Over-Exfoliation or Harsh Skincare Products: These can disrupt the skin’s moisture balance and lead to dehydration.

Prevention and Treatment

For Dry Skin

  • Moisturizing: Use rich creams and ointments that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, or glycerin.

  • Gentle Cleansing: Avoid harsh soaps and cleansers.

  • Humidifiers: To add moisture to the air in dry environments.

  • Protecting Skin from Extreme Weather: Wearing appropriate clothing during cold weather.

For Dehydrated Skin

  • Hydration: Increasing water intake.

  • Balanced Diet: Reducing caffeine and alcohol consumption.

  • Hydrating Skincare Products: Look for products with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid.

  • Avoid Over-Exfoliation: Maintain a balanced skincare routine.

Both conditions can sometimes coexist, requiring a combined approach to skincare. Using non-irritating, gentle skincare products and protecting the skin from environmental factors are generally beneficial for both dry and dehydrated skin. If skin dryness or dehydration persists or is associated with other skin issues, consulting professionals such as Cres is recommended for personalized advice and treatment.
