As we enjoy a summer filled with sunshine and salt water, our skin is thirsty for hydration and repair – and the hot, humid weather increases our susceptibility for dehydration. Dehydrated skin generally looks lackluster, and dull, or tired and wrinkly. People who are dehydrated can also show signs of fatigue, weakness and muscle cramps. A recent report stated that up to 75% of Americans are dehydrated and just about all of us are susceptible; whether you’re young or old, man or woman… whether you have naturally oily skin or dry, are fair completed or dark skinned.
Fortunately, there are a multitude of solutions to hydrate your skin and bring back your youthful complexion. Below are some suggestions including lifestyle, product and treatment solutions to consider.
Easy to adopt LIFESTYLE changes include:
- Using a warm, mist humidifier in your bedroom at night to reduce moisture loss
- Moisturize immediately after you shower
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day to help your cells become more hydrated
- Add water-rich foods like cucumbers, berries and melons to your diet
- Avoid excess alcohol and caffeine
