Dull & Dehydrated Skin

Dry and dull skin is quite the opposite of what you want when it comes to the appearance of your skin. It’s very common with people of all ages and gender to experience dry skin and dull skin that has lost its brightness over time.

We understand this can put a dimmer on your confidence and can also add years to your age. Thanks to our specialist facial treatments, here at our clinic in Chester, we can offer a wide range of skin treatments that are designed to help refreshen and rejuvenate your skin

What causes skin dehydration?

There are many causes for dry and dull skin, some of which are included in the list below:

  • Seasonal changes
  • Diet and lifestyle
  • Age
  • Lack of water consumption
  • Excessive exfoliation
  • Pollution

Difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin

Dry and dehydrated skin share many similar signs and symptoms, but they are actually quite distinct. Here is a quick breakdown of how these two skincare problems differ:

Dry Skin

Dry skin is classified as a skin problem and is inherited through your genetics. A dry skin type is one that is predisposed to inadequate production of the skin’s natural oils.

In addition, dry skin can be connected to hormonal imbalances or an underactive thyroid. This can inhibit your skin’s sebum production, contributing to a complexion that is dry and lacklustre in appearance.

While your dry skin type can’t be changed, you can improve its appearance by adding oil-infused products to your skincare routine.

Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a skin condition. It is caused by external elements (weather and seasonal changes), unhealthy diet (lack of fresh produce) and lifestyle choices (alcohol or caffeine consumption). 

All of these factors deplete your skin’s water content, resulting in a less supple appearance.

A key takeaway is that dehydration is characterized by a lack of water – not oil; even oily skin types can become dehydrated. Luckily, dehydrated skin is temporary and can be relieved with a combination of topical treatments and lifestyle changes.
