Here are 3 reasons that may explain the dehydration of your skin:
– The abuse of acne products
Anti-acne creams or those that fight against the excess of sebum negatively affect the hydration of the skin. And especially if they are used daily. When the skin loses the sebum, it also loses the water that keeps the cells working properly.
– Removing make-up or aggressive showers
Aggressing the skin is a great way to dehydrate it. Rubbing too hard when washing or removing make-up dries out the skin.
– Do not hydrate at all
Do not drink a lot of water or do not apply a day cream, lose the skin its shine and protection. Cold, pollution, wind slowly weaken the source of water in the epidermis.
Moreover, it is necessary to differentiate moisturizing cream and nourishing cream. The nourishing cream nourishes the skin when the moisturizer brings water. Thus, dehydrated skin does not need nourishing intake but water. So putting a nourishing cream will not solve the problem. On the contrary, if one is dealing with oily skin, it will tend to fatten more and react badly (blackheads, excess sebum).
