Dry Skin? Ways to help your skin stay moist and healthy.


What is the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin? 

Dry skin lacks oil because it produces less sebum than normal skin. It is a common condition with many causes. The lack of sebum means the skin is without the lipids it needs to retain moisture. Dehydrated skin does not have enough water. Dehydration is caused by many external factors, but the most common are weather, environment, diet, and caffeine consumption.

Here are four ways to help your skin stay moist and healthy:

    1. Always Moisturize. If you live in Houston, Texas, the harsh heat can make your already active oil glands becomes hyperactive. This can lead to itchy skin, sunburn, and even early symptoms of aging. Thus, it’s a must to moisturize your skin. You can also use a heavier oil-free moisturizer at night before you go to sleep. Our Acai Berry Moisturizer helps you keep hydrated and protects you from environmental damage while relieving the surface signs of aging. The Acai berry is rich in Vitamins B, C & E; an excellent antioxidant which also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and helps promote healing and collagen synthesis. This provides hydration without leaving a heavy feel on the skin’s surface. It promotes hydration that protects from environmental damage while relieving the surface signs of aging. You must also try Ageless Hydrating Serum. This has a nice, light texture and is great for restoring moisture into the skin and balancing surface bi-layers.
    2. Apply Face Oil or Serum. Mixing a bit of plant oil into your SPF or serum is a great way to boost the moisture into your skin. We just restocked our three different organic face oils packed with vitamins and natural ingredients. It's a must try! Click here to shop Face Oil.
    3. Keeping Skin Cleansed and Exfoliated. We always stress how it's important to exfoliate your face at least once a week. As dead skin builds up, it can diminish the absorption of moisturizers. Exfoliating can remove dead skin cells allowing your moisturizer to work better. Dermaplaning is a must-try service we offer. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that involves gently scraping the surface of your skin with a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and peach fuzz. This facial includes double cleansing, dermaplaning, enzyme peel, extraction, hydrojelly mask, shoulder neck massage, and moisturizer.
    4. Drink Water. They don't say drink 8 glasses of water for no reason. Adult humans are 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water. Drinking water has a lot of benefits. Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables and essential fatty acids can also help with improving your overalls skin.
