Recipe for Dehydrated Skin
NaturallyCurly writes:

Dryness on skin is actually dehydration . . . as weather gets colder, moisture drops to the ground, and there is less moisture in the air, causing moisture in the skin to evaporate. For dry skin, try 1 tsp finely ground cornmeal, 1 tsp sour cream, 1/4 orange (juice squeezed), 1/2 tsp grape seed oil or avocado oil, and 1/8 tsp salt mixed together to form a paste. Gently massage into skin for several minutes and rinse with water.

    Thanks for the tips! I'm always being warned about dehydration whenever I get bloodwork done so I've started drinking more water. And I plan to buy a humidifier as soon as I can decide between the duck,elephant & pig shapes lol (don't judge me). My skin is alot more supple now. I'm constantly doing the "pinch test" to make sure I'm not dehydrated lol

    I also LOVE what coconut oil does for my skin. I had some really dry flaky patches on my arms & started rubbing coconut oil all over while still in the shower then rinsing a bit. This has SAVED my skin! It's soft & has a glow. I also use Amlactin lotion which is HELLA expensive ($27 for a bottle) but nothing else works as well. so I am always on the hunt for natural, less expensive treatments.

    I'm an exfoliater too lol. I love a good loofah. I use my Clarisonic body brush on my knees elbows & feet only. It's a hassle to use anywhere else.

    Good tips Madea!

    I'd also like to add that the best way to combat dehydrated skin is with water based treatments. This includes water based moisturizers and masks.

    Dry skin should be treated with oil based treatments.

    If you don't know the difference between dry and dehydrated skin, make an appointment with a qualified esthetician. 🙂

    You are right. The best way to combat Dehydration is to drink plenty of water. Its a problem during the winter because people tend to drink less then they do during the summer.

    A humidifier is a good idea to minimize dry skin. Instead of really hot showers and baths, take warm showers and baths. Don't roughly rub your skin dry and use a good moisterizer right after bathing. Hot water dries out the skin. A good moisterizer after a mild cleanser for the face is better than a harsh soap or the body soaps.

    I use Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming cleanser and my face does not have that tight dry feeling afterwards.

    Dry skin and dehydrated skin are actually 2 different conditions.
