In order to adequately address dehydrated skin, it is important to understand what the term refers to. At Chamonix, we are cognizant of the fine delineations between the various skin types, which is why our specialized treatments are effective at addressing them all. None of the skin conditions can be addressed effectively unless one understands how they differ. Once you know how dehydrated skin is different from, let’s say dry skin or combination skin, it will be that much easier to find the best products and curate the most suitable skincare routine so you can see the smooth, radiant, and plumped skin you desire.
What is Dehydrated Skin?
Despite the fact that the term ‘dehydrated skin’ is often used interchangeable with ‘dry skin’ or ‘combination skin’, they are not the same. Dehydrated skin neither refers to dry nor combination skin. Having traditionally dry skin is not hard to discern – it is tight and dry, without any oily regions anywhere. This does not change, and dry skin is just that, dry throughout the entire year. Depending on the climate, season, or activity, dry skin may be more or less dry.
On the other hand, combination skin is a combination of dry and oily skin regions. Oily areas are typically those that form the T-zone (nose, chin, and center of the forehead), and skin on the sides of the face or cheeks is dry.
Similar to dry skin, dehydrated skin is also dry, but the major difference is that dehydrated skin comes and goes. It is also marked by a more than normal and sometimes even excessive amount of oil. However, despite the oily surface layer, dehydrated skin still feels dry underneath, which can be frustrating. If you are reading this article, chances are you have dehydrated skin. There is both good and bad information for you – the culprit behind your dehydrated skin is most likely the skincare products you are using.
Genucel by Chamonix has been created with the struggles of dehydrated skin in mind. Below are some tips and tricks to get you started on a path toward a better skin care routine and ultimately better skin.
How to Address Dehydrated Skin?
- Use Gentle Cleansers
Gentle cleansers are those that effectively remove excess oil and blemishes without leaving your skin dry and flaky or greasy and ultimately dehydrated.
Chamonix’s Cristalles Microdermabrasion is an effective product that will exfoliate your skin and help remove potential product build-up, dead skin, dirt, and oil. The best part of this product is that it moisturizes while exfoliating, meaning that your face is both cleaned and hydrated at the same time. This is a powerful start to better skin because exfoliation will ultimately lead to radiant and glowing skin.
- Use Serums with Antioxidants
Serums are only truly effective if they are loaded with healthy ingredients that will help promote the skin’s healing process as well as rejuvenation. Antioxidants free the skin from free radicals that are damaging and may lead to dull and dry looking skin. Genucel’s Deep Firming Serum is a powerful skin antioxidant that can help improve the appearance of puffiness, age lines, and wrinkles by helping to minimize pores and plump up the skin. Genucel’ Serum does not irritate the skin – its patented Liposome Technology has been shown to deliver its active ingredient – Vitamin C – at a 7.5% concentration to the deepest layer of the skin and work its wonders. It is advised that the serum is used under the moisturizer in order to obtain the best results possible.
- Use Targeted Creams (Sparingly)
When using targeted boosters, make sure you use them sparingly as they can also lead to undesired side effects. Eye treatments, for example, can be particularly tricky as the area under the eyes is especially sensitive. This only makes it that much more difficult to address and treat.
However, targeted creams that do not have to be applied and reapplied on a daily basis are rare. Genucel eye products are effective enough that the last for up to 24 hours after application – this often means that they are powerful enough to have a long lasting effect, while at the same time this helps forego everyday application. This is a perfect combination for dehydrated skin. Examples include products such as Genucel Plant Stem Cell Therapy that is designed to help reduce under eye bags and puffiness and Genucel2 that uses triple action technology to enhance the appearance of problem areas around the eyes.
Know your Skin Type
Knowing your skin type is a crucial step toward better skin. However, that is only half the battle. The other part of the puzzle is determining the best skin care products for your skin type because once you stop using products that are not suitable for you and start using those that will help, you are that much closer to glowing and radiant – and most of all healthy – skin. The best part of all of it is that you will no longer have to battle with confusing and frustrating situations with dehydrated and flaky skin.
