Our favourite season is finally here! Beautiful summer days never disappoint but a must-have this season is Sun Protection Factor (SPF) and a good skincare routine!
If you’ve noticed that your skin is not its usual glowing self, dehydration could be the issue. It’s not uncommon to think that only dry skin can be dehydrated, and dry and dehydrated are often used as one term. But this isn’t the case. In fact, all skin types can become dehydrated! Dehydrated skin can be prevented however through a moisture-packed, highly nourishing natural skincare routine.
What’s the difference between dehydrated skin and dry skin?
Most people think dehydrated and dry skin are the same, but they are very different.
Dry skin is characterised by a lack of oil, which is usually a sign that your skin produces less sebum (an oil that keeps skin soft and youthful). Dehydrated skin on the other hand is a skin condition generally occuring not when there’s a lack of oil, but a lack of water. Signs include redness, sunken eyes or deep under-eye circles, tight, uncomfortable skin and more wrinkles or fine lines.
In some cases you can have both oily and dehydrated skin, which makes our nutritious Lavido skincare routine ever more valuable to you!
The Lavido morning skincare routine for dehydrated skin:
Hydrated Facial Cleanser:
It is very important to overcome dehydrated skin and start your morning routine with a gentle, natural and Ph-balanced cleanser! Be kind to your skin by ensuring your face cleanser isn’t stripping your skin of its natural oils and impairing your moisture barrier.
Face masks are a quick and easy way to address skin issues, especially dehydrated summer skin. High temperatures, humidity, and sun damage can affect your skin’s lipid barrier, leading to surface water loss in the skin. While keeping hydrated from within is one of the best ways to make sure your skin stays plump, a natural face mask can give your skin a boost of moisture too. Dehydrated skin looks wrinkly, patchy, and dull, and these hydrating Lavido face masks can help repair your skin.
The 2-in-1 Purifying Facial Mask & Exfoliator treatment removes dead skin cells, accumulated debris and oil in pores, encouraging skin to increase blood flow that stimulates cellular regeneration and accelerates collagen production. Following the treatment, a new, smooth layer of skin grows, and new cells emerge, restoring skin’s vitality and flexibility.
Hydrating Facial Toner:
Including a top natural toner in your skincare routine is a quick, easy way to ensure your face is calm, clean, yet supple, and your skin prepared to absorb serums, moisturisers, and makeup. They’re considered a must for truly healthy skin.
The purpose of facial cleansing is to remove various impurities including dust particles, sand, soot, residues of cosmetics and makeup products, sebum, sweat, dead cells and bacteria.
The role of acial Toner is to cleanse thoroughly, close and disinfect pores, helps absorb excess oil and sebum and balances the pH level. Finally, the cleansing action enables the skin to drain toxins and simultaneously, effectively absorb more moisture and nourishing ingredients.
For glowing and healthy skin apply Lavido Invigorating Facial Serum on damp and clean skin. The Serum is a concentrated extract of active, small molecule ingredients including vitamins, minerals, and oils, which all contribute to the restoration of collagen tissue, accelerate cell renewal and help restore skin moisture, volume and elasticity. Due to the small molecules of these ingredients, the Replenishing Serum can better penetrate to the lower layers of the skin.
When your skin is feeling dehydrated, a natural moisturiser is the key. If you’re struggling to choose the perfect one, choose according to your skin type and look at the ingredients list and see what the moisturiser has to offer. These are going to soothe your skin and minimise any irritation leaving it hydrated and anti-aging. Here are some other essential Lavido Moisturisers and Facial Creams for perfect skin this summer:
