Dry Skin vs. Dehydrated Skin: What’s The Difference?

Just as thirst isn't a helpful indicator of hydration (by the time you feel thirsty, chances are you’re already dehydrated), dry skin is not necessarily a helpful indicator of dehydrated skin. In other words, by the time your skin surface feels parched, there’s a good chance your skin cells are already desperate for hydration. To further complicate matters, your skin may never feel dry and still be dehydrated: You can have an oily complexion and still experience dehydration because skin needs both oil and water to be healthy. Okay, now you deserve some good news: dehydrated skin is highly avoidable and highly reversible.

How is dehydrated skin different from dry skin? 

Dry skin needs moisture and is usually considered a skin type. In fact, it is often hereditary. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is skin that needs water and can easily be remedied. The telltale signs of dehydrated skin are red patchescongestiondark circles, and wrinkles. Dehydration is typically caused by environmental factors (seasonal changes), but it can also be brought on by using the wrong products or lifestyle changes.

How can I avoid dehydrated skin?

What you put in your body matters. The simplest way to avoid dehydrated skin is to make sure you are drinking water even when you are not thirsty. You’ve heard it before but it bears repeating: Aim for eight glasses a day. It’s also important to note that some liquids, mainly caffeine and alcohol, will sabotage your skin’s water content. If you drink either, offset the consumption with even more water. When it comes to diet, water-rich fruits and vegetables (cucumber, celery) and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, nuts and egg yolks) are a valuable source of hydration for your skin.

Also, mind your environment. If you spend a lot of time indoors, use a humidifier to offset the dryness and aggravation caused by dry indoor heating and central air conditioning. And do you best to avoid long, steamy baths: Prolonged exposure to hot water can cause your skin to dry out.

Too late, my skin is already dehydrated. What can I do?

The best ways to counter dehydrated skin is with a solid skincare routine. (And drink more water! Did we mention?) Serums are the most important part of any moisture and rehydration strategy. BL+ The Serum formula tackles both dehydration and dryness. The key ingredient, BL+ COMPLEX, is a blend of patented Blue Lagoon Silica and Blue Lagoon Microalgae, which nourish the skin while strengthening the skin barrier. The serum formula’s trio of humectant-attracting molecules (hyaluronic acids) work to increase hydration levels of the skin. In addition, the formula contains the electrolyte-rich Blue Lagoon Seawater that boosts the performance of the serum by energizing skin cells, making them more receptive and optimizing their function. BL+ The Serum rehydrates skin at a cellular level, while strengthening the skin barrier to protect against both dryness and dehydration.

And finally, exfoliating once a week will ensure that you are removing the dead skin cells that can build up, clog pores, and prevent moisture from penetrating deep into your skin. A weekly exfoliation will also help BL+ The Serum do its job more effectively
