Is Your Skin Dehydrated?

  • Ali

Our skin can be just as affected by the change in seasons as our moods. As the nights draw in and the light levels change we often start to feel the need for more comforting foods and warmer meals. I know I certainly start to make more soups for lunch and hearty dishes in the evening - look out for a flurry of recipes coming to the blog shortly. Our skin starts to show signs of suffering at this time of year too. Living with central heating and air conditioning in the office, coupled with a commute in an air conditioned car or hot public transport, and the sudden change when we hit the cold, fresh air outside, can all affect the condition of our skin. Internal factors such as age, hormones and overall health can also take a toll on our skin.

The skin is one of our body’s natural water reservoir, holding approximately 10% of our water for functional hydration. Dehydrated skin is skin lacking in moisture - it is not so much a skin-type as a skin condition. Even oily and combination skin can be dehydrated. It occurs when the protective uppermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum, is lacking in moisture. To combat this Arbonne has just released a new Bio Hydria range of 4 skincare products and a hydrating herbal tea.

Using technology that capitalises on the Succulent plant’s natural ability to retain water Arbonne has created a hydrating formula using Edulis Cellular Water which enables skin to receive intensive, deep down hydration while pooling critical moisture within. Together with Aloe Vera these products flood the skin with water, which is then absorbed like a sponge to trap the moisture in, reducing “dermal evaporation.”

If you’re experiencing signs of dehydration in your skin then why not take advantage of Arbonne’s 90 day money back guarantee and give these products a try. If you’re not entirely satisfied with them within the 90 day period just contact me and return them to Arbonne for a full refund, no questions asked.
