To be healthy, our skin needs hydration and nutrition. What are the differences between hydration and nutrition and how do you recognize if your skin is dry or dehydrated? Discover our advice on how to find your way around and choose the right treatments.
Hydration vs nutrition: what are the differences for your skin?
Like your body, your skin needs nutrients to be beautiful, supple and elastic.
She needs bothhydration - provided by water and food and by cosmetic care - but also from nutrition.
These two concepts are sometimes wrongly considered to be similar: the skin can thus be dehydrated but not dry, or dry but not dehydrated! The dehydration of the skin occurs when the water supply is insufficient, because of the environment (cold, sun, pollution…), the application of unsuitable cosmetic care or by a lack of water in the diet. The skin barrier function no longer fulfills its mission, and the hydrolipidic film deteriorates.
Nourish your skin consists in providing it with lipids to keep intact the barrier role of the skin. This produces more or less sebum (depending on whether you have dry, normal to combination or oily skin) which helps keep skin cells together. Like hydration, nutrition should be part of your beauty routine, especially if you have dry skin or if you are exposed to multiple external aggressions such as stress, pollution or the sun.
In terms of care, always favor the application of moisturizers first and second, nourishing, to “seal in” the hydration and prevent the evaporation of the moisturizing agents contained inside.
How do you know if your skin is dry or dehydrated?
To understand the type of care you need and set up your ideal routine, it is essential to define your skin type, and observe the manifestations that appear in the event of Dehydration or drought.
An skin lacking in hydration is characterized by the appearance of small fine lines or streaks, a dull complexion, which lacks radiance, and a lack of flexibility. The skin can also become uncomfortable, tight and itchy.
If your skin is more hungry for nutrition, drought areas are present on the skin, with peeling. The skin is irritated, sensitive, uncomfortable.
All skin types need daily hydration.
