Dry Skin / Dehydrated Skin

Dry Skin / Dehydrated Skin

Dry skin or dehydrated skin is a common skin problem caused by an insufficient amount of water in the epidermis, or the top layer of the skin. Phyto-C Skin Care by Phytoceuticals, Inc. is an established provider of Vitamin C skin care products that can help tackle dry skin. Our range of products are natural, safe, and effective for various types of skin.

Understanding Dry Skin / Dehydrated Skin

Common symptoms of dry skin and dehydrated skin include:

  • Itching
  • Skin that looks and feels rough
  • Flaking, peeling, or scaling
  • Thin lines or cracks
  • Redness
  • A dull appearance
  • Tightness of skin

Itchiness is the main symptom of dry skin or dehydrated skin. People who suffer from dry skin often see rough, red, and dry areas on their skin. The itchy feeling of dry skin can cause the symptoms of dry skin to become more severe. Older individuals are at higher risk of suffering from dry skin (xerosis), causing skin to potentially crack, itch, and even bleed.

Environmental factors such as temperature and humidity can also have a significant impact on how much water is retained in the skin. There is a higher chance of getting dry skin during winter when the humidity level and temperature is low. Washing your hands or sanitizing frequently can also result in dryer skin. Certain soaps may also strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture, further increasing your risk of dry skin.

Dry skin is often mixed up with dehydration, but the two are not the same thing. While dehydration can be remedied with proper hydration, dry skin requires consistent and ongoing maintenance in order to sufficiently heal.  The right skincare routine can make a world of difference for remedying dry skin.

Common Dry Skin / Dehydrated Skin FAQs

  • How do I prevent dry skin or dehydrated skin?

Stay hydrated and drink enough water during the day to prevent dehydration. This helps skin remain moist and retain its water content. A healthy diet is also important to maintain sufficient water content in the body.

  • Will using Phyto-C skin care products help improve my dry skin?

Yes, one of the best ways to tackle dry skin is to customize your skin care routine to include the use of products that are rich in moisture. Products that contain Vitamin C and E have water-binding properties that keep skin moist and soft.

  • What happens if you do not take care of dry skin?

Skin needs sufficient water and moisture to stay healthy. If you do not take care of dry skin, your skin may become dull, rough, and may even develop wrinkles.
