Skin Conditions - Dehydration

One of the skin’s most vital functions is to conserve water, acting as a semi-permeable, moisture barrier between the inside of your body and the surrounding environment.  Proper water conservation in the body, thus, depends on the skin.  That’s a tough job, especially when one considers the abuse the skin constantly undergoes from the outside world.

The skin itself is 75% water.  Water moves throughout the body to serve internal needs, moving to the skin in a process called transepidermal water loss.  Healthy skin maintains just the right levels to remain plump, firm, and well-hydrated.  

Dry, dehydrated skin, then, is the result of two causes.  On the one hand, it can be caused by a lack of internal water, which causes the skin to become dry and brittle.  That’s why it’s so important to drink enough water every day.  On the other hand, it can be caused by external factors, such as an arid environment, physical stress, or other environmental factors.  Such factors suck vital moisture from the skin, leaving it damaged, prone to breakdown, and easily infected.  

Most of us have dealt with dry skin in one way or another, so we know how uncomfortable it can be.  Whether you’ve had dry, chapped lips or peeling skin following a sunburn, dehydrated skin is never fun.  

Cosmedica Skincare is provides you with a number of options to heal dry, dehydrated skin and prevent the moisture loss that leads to skin damage.  Cosmedica Hyaluronic Acid Serum uses hyaluronic acid, a compound capable of bonding to up to 1000 times its weight in water, to infuse all layers of the skin down to the dermis with rich, nourishing moisture.  At the same time, it works to fortify the skin’s natural barriers to lock that moisture in for lasting benefits.  Cosmedica Vitamin C Serum similarly features the power of hyaluronic acid.  Finally, Cosmedica Multi-Active Night Creme is a creamy, moisturizing treatment that works all night to restore your skin’s moisture. 

If you deal with dry, dehydrated skin that is constantly cracking or irritated, don’t lose hope.  Cosmedica Skincare truly can restore balance to your complexion so you can say goodbye to dry forever!
