Our body consists of about 70% water1. The skin's tissue is made up of many cells, which all need the right amount of water to function properly.
Did you know that hydration is also
important for our complexion as well?
When skin is not well hydrated, it tends to:
to be more
Our skin moisture drops significantly as we age.
These stressors may strip away skin's natural
moisturing factor (NMF), leading to dehydrated skin:
Signs of dehydrated skin include5:
Tired skin: Dull skin & dark under eye circles
Without adequate hydration, our skin does not shed its outer layer frequently enough.
Dead cells accumulate, contributing to clogged pores and a lackluster complexion.
External elements like extreme change in weather and wind can zap moisture from the skin's outer layer, resulting in a tight, itchy sensation.
This is often accompanied by flaking, regardless of the amount of oil on your skin’s surface.
Fine lines & wrinkles
Dehydrated skin often displays accelerated signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.
When skin’s moisture barrier is disrupted, it cannot properly protect itself from external stressors.
As a result, pollutants and irritants can penetrate into skin, worsening symptoms like itchiness, redness and irritation.
Dehydrated skin can be fixed both inside and out by addressing your skin care routine as well as your overall lifestyle.
1) FLUSH OUT THE BAD
STUFF AND STAY HYDRATED
Start by drinking enough water every day. This is the first step towards maintaining a dewy and smooth complexion.
Experts say that we should be drinking at least 8 glasses, or two litres of water per day 6.
Staying hydrated allows and helps our body to flush out toxins much more easily.
Skin problems may pop up if our body is not functioning properly due to inadequate hydration.
Staying hydrated may help steer away some toxin-related skin problems like sensitive skin, rashes and acne!7
2) EATING FOOD THAT PROMOTES
MOISTURE IN BODY
Our skin needs certain nutrients to repair itself and keep it in optimal condition. Healthy foods not only keep us hydrated, they work on a cellular level to keep skin supple and smooth. These include:
One of the symptoms of omega-3 deficiencies include dry skin9. Loading up on fatty fish such as tuna and salmon which contain high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids can help retain moisture and strengthen skin’s barrier to keep skin hydrated.
Tomatoes provide lots of water, nutrients and antioxidants, which are beneficial for hydration. One medium tomato alone provides about a half cup (est 118ml) of water10. It also provides a significant amount of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin A and C.
Water-rich vegetables like cucumbers contain Silica which helps in increasing skin elasticity. Vitamins A and C in cucumbers also soothe and fight skin damage.
Avocados are rich in Vitamin E and monounsaturated fats which not only keeps skin moist, they also prevent the appearance or signs of ageing8.

INCORPORATE EFFECTIVE SKINCARE PRODUCTS IN YOUR DAILY ROUTINE TO PROVIDE COMPLETE MOISTURE
For topical applications, maintain soft, supple skin by using moisturisers daily. Moisturisers should include ingredients in one of the three different classes to help promote skin hydration:
Ingredients that bind water to the outmost layer of the skin.
These ingredients draw moisture from the environment, and also carry it from the deeper layers of the skin to the surface.
Examples: butylene, glycol, glycerin and hyaluronic acid
Ingredients that provide skin with a soft, pliable feel.
The ingredients remain on the skin’s surface, lubricating, reducing flakiness, and improving the overall appearance.
Examples: lipids and oils, and shea butter.
Ingredients that help hold water in the skin by slowing down evaporation.
Similar to emollients, these ingredients remain on the surface, creating a thin film that helps hold up the loss water.
Examples: silicones like dimethicone and cyclomethicone.
