Imagine your body going without water for a long period of time. Eventually, your organs would shut down. Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. Now, imagine the damage you are doing to your skin through dehydration.
Dehydration in the skin weakens its defense and creates skin sensitivity, irritation, and premature aging.
The Stratum Corneum is made up of NMFs or (Natural Moisturizing Factors). Water naturally binds to your NMF and once bound, is what creates skin hydration. Balancing your oil and water content depends on these factors that can attract, retain and maintain hydration in the skin.
Dehydration in the skin weakens its defense and creates skin sensitivity, irritation, and premature aging by breaking down the skin's collagen store. This store is not an abundant source so it's important to preserve this. Without enough water, your skin will start to show signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Dehydrated skin is less effective as a protective barrier and therefore your skin can easily be threatened by active ingredients or outside elements. This is known as sensitive skin. The skin can recover from this with proper care of the lipid barrier. Thus becoming stronger, healthier, and less reactive.
