Collection: Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin is a developed skin concern, which means it is more temporary in nature. Dry skin is considered lacking in oil. Dehydrated skin is simply lacking water. This often happens when there are insufficient levels of water within the skin.

Dehydrated skin commonly feels flaky, taught and itchy and may be caused by many factors including over-exfoliation of the skin, poor diet, alcohol consumption, use of stripping cleansers and harsh soaps, climate change, over-exposure to the sun and other environmental factors. 

Dehydrated skin is generally more crêpe-like in appearance with fine-lines being more visible. In certain cases of dehydration, the skin compensates for this water loss by over-producing oil and as a result, dehydrated skin can appear to become oily.

The best way to overcome this is to increase the amount of water taken up into the skin. Consuming sufficient levels of water is important for overall health and well-being however, consuming more water within your diet may not necessarily overcome dehydration. The reason for this is that the skin is the last organ to receive water when ingested meaning that only a small percentage of all consumed water actually reaches the skin. Rather reach for topically-applied skin care products that are hydrophilic in nature, meaning they bind and retain water in the skin.

Bestow Beauty Oil moisturises your skin from the inside out by feeding the skin cell at the deepest layer of the epidermis. As this cell progresses to the upper layers of the skin it releases its beautiful oils creating plump, supple, smooth, glowing skin. We recommend you begin Bestow Beauty Plus Oil with to clear any existing processing blockages and to address EFA deficiencies efficiently. After one or two bottles, you can then move onto Bestow Beauty Oil.

Skin Care Routine for dehydrated skin

Apply DermaFix ACC Hyaluronic Gel, a humectant helping to bind water into the skin and prevent water loss. Follow with the application of DermaFix Bio-Hydrating Cream, a light-weight emollient moisturiser that assists to balance the skin's barrier whilst preventing trans-epidermal water loss. DermaFix Argan Oil can be applied over the above-mentioned products for additional moisturising benefits.
