Dry or Dehydrated Skin

Dry and dehydrated skin are often discussed as if they are one and the same, but they are actually separate issues. Dry skin is actually a skin type and it means that the skin produces less oil than other skin types. Symptoms of dry skin often include flaking, rough texture, sensitivity, redness and cracking. 

Dry or Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin is a result of a lack of water and is often itchy and dull. It can also lead to darkness around the eyes and nose, and more noticeable fine lines and wrinkles. 

Treatments for Dry or Dehydrated Skin

Dry skin requires a little more special attention. It’s common to experience some sensitivity to products with this skin type, so it’s very important to choose carefully. At the Centre for Pure Skin, we offer a variety of expertly selected products that are formulated especially for dry skin types such as cleansers, buffered retinols and moisturizers. These products contain ingredients that are designed to be gentle on dry skin, aid in cell turnover and reinforce a healthy barrier. We may also recommend a mild peel such as a HydraFacial® to gently address dead skin cells and deliver vital nutrients deeper into the skin’s layers. 

Dehydrated skin should first be treated by addressing the outside stressors that may be causing it. Proper daily water intake and a diet composed of rich nutrients and healthy oils are great places to begin. As with dry skin, we recommend sticking to a good skincare regimen. Products that support water retention such as Hyaluronic Acid serums can also be very effective. Chemical peels can also be a useful tool for addressing dehydrated skin. The deeper level of exfoliation provided in a peel treatment removes layers of dead skin cells, helping the skin to better accept topical treatments. SkinVive™ by Juvederm® is an FDA-Approved microdroplet injectable treatment that can increase hydration in the treatment area for up to six months.
