"Your skin is dehydrated!" When I say that, people usually respond with, "yeah, I should drink more water." But that's actually not the first solution I'm looking at--it's the topical care that 💧hydrates the skin!
You do indeed have to drink water for skin health, but you can't drink enough to make your skin feel moist. Drink up, to support proper internal function, for organ health and proper elimination, which affect the skin. Have I confused you yet? Drink water- of course!, but to avoid dehydrated skin, you need topical hydrators, especially if you live in looow humidity (like me 😫!). This is independent of "oily or dry" skin classification, where all need the hydration for healthy skin. Dehydrated skin usually results in impaired barrier, making the skin more sensitive or vulnerable, which isn't helpful for acne-prone skin, or premature aging.
Solutions: one of the easiest is incorporating hyaluronic acid into your routine (these can be in serums, masks, or moisturizers). Also, apply your products immediately out of the shower or after rinsing cleanser, to lock in moisture. In the cold months, I like to sleep with a humidifier on. Really hot temps of water are more dehydrating, so keep that in check too.
