Your Routine for Hydrated and Glowing Skin

Created by Longevity for Eau Thermale Avène

Did you know that even oily skin types can experience dehydration? No matter your skin type, it is essential to have a skincare routine in place that keeps your complexion glowing and hydrated. 

Is My Skin Dehydrated?

Although dehydration may make your skin feel dry, it is actually due to an excessive lack of water and hydration in your skin, as oppose to a lack of natural oils.

hydrated | Longevity LIVE The main factors that promote skin dehydration include: natural skin aging; environmental elements; lifestyle habits (diet and exercise); and, of course, the incorrect use of products.

If your skin is dehydrated, you are at a much higher risk of experiencing breakouts, irritation, inflammation severe redness, fine dehydration lines and flaking due to the dead skin cell build-up.

How Do I Avoid  Dehydration?

Though the mantra you’ve been taught about drinking an equitable amount of water every day is essential to avoid dehydration, it is not always enough. So having a safe skincare routine is a must. Here are some of our tips:

1. Avoid anything highly fragranced and stick to products that use natural and simple ingredients.
2. Do not over exfoliate as it can cause further irritation.
3. Use gentle soaps, as harsh chemicals will take moisture out of your skin.
