Skin hydration is essential all year long, especially in the winter, when dry air and colder temperatures wick away even more moisture. Extreme temperatures, dry air and wind can destroy lipids, which are the skin’s natural barrier. Dehydrated skin is much more than dry skin; it is itchy and dull and can make you look older and more tired than you feel.
Lipids are natural fats found in the skin and elsewhere in the body. Present in the form of ceramides, natural cholesterol and fatty acids, lipids create a natural barrier in the topmost layer of skin, known as the epidermis. This lipid barrier protects the skin from damage, binds cells together and prevents moisture loss. The lipid barrier is under constant attack from the elements, and the loss of lipids can leave skin dehydrated. Aging skin is especially susceptible to the loss of lipids.
Why Hydration Is Important
Skin gets its moisture from the inside out; it pulls fluids from tiny blood vessels in your skin. If your body is dehydrated, there won’t be enough water, and your skin will dry out. If you have any of the following signs, you may have dehydrated skin that would benefit from a daily moisturizer.
- Dull appearance to your skin
- Darker under-eye circles that make you look tired
- Sunken eyes
- “Shadows” around your eyes, nose and other areas of your face
- Appearance of or increase in fine lines and surface wrinkles
