Well hello there,

Many experts preach that the amount of H20 you consume is responsible for your hydrated your skin looks.

Yet water isn’t the magic cure when it comes to your skin’s hydration. Here is why:

Although sufficient water intake is critical in maintain healthy cell metabolism, it will not correct existing superficial epidermal dehydration.

Surface dehydration is a crippling enemy of the skin affecting up to 98% of us at various stages of our Ife. Dehydrated skin can be associated with skin issues such as scaly, taught skin, superficial lines and premature aging.

Have you ever wondered why you still have dehydrated skin yet you drink 1.5 litres of water per day? 

It’s because the outer layers of the skin provide a natural barrier function, which consists of substances such as oils, cholesterol, fatty acids, ceramides and hyaluronic acid.

The health of this natural barrier function is crucial to provide lubrication and protection to the surface of the skin. If this becomes damaged or impaired dehydration results. 

So while it’s very important for your body, mind & spirit to drink lots of luscious water to stay hydrated from the inside out. To treat dehydrated skin it’s important to remember that Poor Cleaning, Sun Damage, Poor Nutrition & inadequate moisturisers also play a defining part in dehydrated skin.

To keep your skin feeling hydrated you can help by choosing the right topical skincare products.

We recommend using:

Cleanse: Gentle Cleanser as it is full of anti-oxidants and helps to rebuild an impaired barrier function.

Correct: Multi-Active mist with Vitamin B3 and Pomegranate Oil to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin. Follow with Rejuvenate 15 serum rich in copper, minerals and peptides which help to repair and strengthen the skin integrity whilst providing antioxidant, vitamins and minerals support to the skin.

Hydrate: Hydrating Mask with Vitamin B5 to nourish and repair damage caused by dehydration.
