HOW TO TREAT DRY AND DEHYDRATED SKIN? You better don't ever ask me this question as I myself shuck at it. Yes, judging by how my face skin like, boohoo! I have a combination skin type and some said I have more to dry skin type. Perhaps it's just because I most of the time stay in air-conditioned room. No, can't blame me as I somehow can't survive without aircond. Or you just going to hear me ranting nonstop - SO HOT!

I wonder if some of you have encountered this experience before, I felt my skin kinda dry and tight after washed my face when I use certain skincare products. While some of my friends told me it's a good thing till the day the beautician told me that it simply means the product not suitable for my skin type. Oh boy! How silly I could be huh? I even tried it again and truly realized that yes my face skin getting tighter but I could not ignore the dryness and itchiness on it even though it was just a mild one. Just so you know that, I have experienced few times of skin peeling especially on the nose part due to dryness.

Oh, if you still do not know yet, there's a difference between dry and dehydrated skin. I get to know that dry skin is a skin type - lack of oils. On the other hand, dehydrated skin is a skin condition - lack of moisture. If your skin is oily, it can't be dry because that means that there us no oil there, but if you're experiencing break-outs, there is definitely oil there. Dry flakes over top of oil prone areas on your skin is dehydrated, not dry.

No, I don't think anyone of you would love to have that kind of dry skin or dehydrated skin! Even a guy would not want it! Well, dry skin needs moisturizers that containing protectants and emollient to provide a protective layer to prevent moisture loss. It's better to check on your moisturizer product if they contained these - Ceramides, Shea Butter, Beeswax, Squalene, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Cetyl Alcohol. You could also wash your face with mild cleansing lotions that formulated for your skin type and avoid using bar soap or harsh foaming cleansers. Most importantly, never ever leave your face skin bare for more that 60-seconds after washing. You have to quickly apply alcohol-free toner, serum and moisturizer on it.

How about dehydrated skin? As mentioned, it simply means your skin lack of moisture, so one of the best ways to treat it is by drinking plenty of water. If you think you have sufficient water consume daily and still experiencing dehydrated skin, do increase your water intake by 3 glasses of water per day and see the result of it. And of course, by using moisturizer twice a day will help too! Moisturizers and creams helps to create a barrier on the surface of your skin to lock moisture in and also protect your skin from harmful elements such as pollution dirt and so on.
It seem that is not difficult to treat these heh? I should not letting the lazy bugs to rule me and causing me not to do these ways regularly. I definitely do not want to experience any skin peeling anymore due to the dryness of my skin. The more hydrated your skin is, the better makeup will look on your skin - and now I know why am not really look that good with make-up on! *sobs*
