We often say ‘my skin feels really dry’ when in actual fact we are dealing with dehydration. What is the difference? Dehydration mean loss of water, whilst dryness means loss of lipids. This means that if we apply a rich in oils/lipids moisturiser on a dehydrated skin it can lead to blocked pores or breakouts. At least this is what happens to my face.
Bioderma has recently launched in Ireland the Hydrabio skincare range aimed solely for dehydrated skin. Starting off with a hydrating Hydrabio Micellaire Cleansing Water to cleanse and remove makeup, following up with the Hydrabio Serum to boost hydration and radiance and sealing it all with one of the Hydrabio Moisturisers – cream for dryer, sensitive complexions/ cream-gel for normal skins – for that ultimate fresh, comfortable feel.
I think most of us are dealing with dehydration during spring time, after spending months indoors with central heating blasting and drinking copious amounts of tea or coffee. The wonderful cosy days and caffeine excesses are taking a toll and showing on our faces. If you are feeling parched, i would give the Bioderma Hydrabio a try. Your skin will thank you!
