Dry or Dehydrated Skin - What's the Difference?

There is a very common misconception that dry and dehydrated skins are the same. In fact, this could not be further from the truth as there is a vast difference between the two. Dry skin is a skin condition and means skin is lacking in oil (lipids). Dehydrated skin is lacking in moisture (water) and can cause many other skin conditions. Oily skin, as well as dry skin can also be dehydrated. Dehydrated skin is directly affected by the fluid intake of a person. If fluid intake is not correctly maintained daily dehydrated skin will result. Drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcohol will exacerbate dehydrated skin. Skin problems such as excess keratinisation (excessive dead skin cells), impaired lymphatic system and accelerated skin ageing can be caused by dehydrated skin.

Further to this, weather conditions directly affect hydration of the skin. In summer when humidity is higher water loss through the skin is minimised. In winter, water loss (trans- epidermal water loss) is much greater. There is hope however! Dehydrated skin can be improved quickly by increasing water intake and with the use of quality skin care containing hydrating ingredients like MSM (Organic Sulphur), Hyaluronic Acid, Olive Squalene and Aloe Vera Juice.

Layering your skin care is also a great way to help improve dehydrated skin and will ensure that each layer of the skin is being looked after and nourished. An example of this would be using Rejuvenating Serum, ACE Vitamin C Serum then sealing with Anti-Wrinkle Cream or Nourishing Cream. Including a weekly Hydrating Mask into your skincare routine will also help to improve dehydrated skin.

Dry skin will be improved by increasing your oral intake of Essential Fatty Acids. If you don't like taking supplements enjoy extra olive oil or coconut oils in you meals. Oil your body from the inside out.

Everyone's skin type is different and not all products work for everyone. To learn more about what we recommend for various skin types here. Or get in touch with us, we'd be happy to suggest a skincare routine to suit you.

Anti-aging bundle

I have used Mismo products for many years. I love the whole package for the benefits that each product provides. I particularly love the feeling of the Anti wrinkle cream, soft, moisturising without it being greasy , heavy or gluggy. I highly recommend this package. I am so pleased to see the glass packaging. Thank you Mismo for beautiful, affordable skin care and giving our environment a thought as well. 🤗🙏

Obvious improvement

The skin under my eyes is plumper and less dry, and my crows feet are not as sharp as before. In general, my skin looks better.
