Qué hacer cuando tienes la piel deshidratada

We are entering a month in which we are already noticing the change in temperature, and therefore we notice the skin is different, and we must change our cosmetic ritual in order to alleviate the needs it presents.

During this time we can notice the skin more dehydrated, but be careful not to confuse it with dry skin, as each one needs different active ingredients.

Dry skin is a type of skin that is characterized by having less lipids because its sebaceous gland is less active. It is a skin that can easily present tightness and greater sensitivity, as well as premature aging if it is not properly cared for.

Generally, the genetic factor is the one that determines the type of skin.

But if we talk about dehydration, we are referring to a skin condition, which is temporary and can be modified with the right treatment. Dehydration is the lack of water in the skin, and it can affect all skin types, dry, oily, combination...

One of the causes of the lack of water is the evaporation of water due to temperature changes, either due to cold, dry climates, heating, air conditioning... Using very aggressive treatments, astringents that not only reduce the action of the sebaceous gland but also of water, hormonal changes, emotional factors such as stress, bad habits such as showers with very high temperatures, smoking, alcohol...

How to treat dehydrated skin?
