What may contribute to dehydrated skin?
- Environmental elements such as, dry climates, low humidity, windy conditions or too much sun exposure will diminish the skin’s ability to hold moisture, causing the skin to shrivel and crack.
- Being unwell and feeling stressed, sleep are also factors to bear in mind. Dare I say it, but you may want to consider the products you are using too.
- Lifestyle habits such as smoking and lack of excercise/movement inhibit the body’s ability to to provide oxygen and nutrients to skin cells. Imagine suffocating your skin from the inside! What you eat will play a huge part too, espcecially if your diet is rich in sugar. Avoid soda and cut down on coffee and alcohol as these act as diuretics. A lack of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) or good fats can aslo contribute to itching, scaling and can lead to an imbalance in prostoglandin – a hormone helps to ensure inflammation is reduced and repair is increased. Important right!
