My skin is dehydrated. What should I do?

1. My skin is dehydrated: why?

Temperature changes, aggressive air-conditioning, over-heated rooms, air that is too dry or too humid: the skin is ultra-sensitive to external factors. The slightest change can be enough to dehydrate it. Whether dry, combination, or oily, all skin types suffer from a lack of moisture.

2. Choose the right skincare products.

Tackle dehydrated skin by replenishing moisture levels and giving it the ingredients it needs to stay protected. Firstly, choose the right moisturizer for your skin type. If you have normal to combination skin, apply the Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream morning and night. Enriched with organic leaf of life extract, its formula stimulates the production of molecules that act like sponges deep within the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, which is essential to maintaining hydrated skin. Oily skin will do better with the Cooling Gel version of this cream, while very dry skin types need the Rich Cream for extra comfort and moisture. For perfectly hydrated skin, you can pair your cream with the Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum. Once or twice a week, pamper your skin with the SOS Hydra Mask for an intense blast of refreshing hydration. In just 10 minutes, this mask quenches parched skin.

3. Drink up.

Moisturized skin starts from within. Remember to drink at least 64 ounces of water every day, even in the winter. Cold weather is harsh on the skin, and although you may not feel as thirsty as during the summer, drinking lots of water is crucial to preventing dehydrated skin.
