We’ve all been told to drink enough water in summers so we don’t face dehydration. We were asked to chug a glass of water every hour, even if we were busy on the playgrounds. And now, we’re telling you to drink a glass of water right now. Lack of hydration causes pain in joints, digestion problems, temperature irregularities and insufficient energy. But that’s not all, dehydration affects you inside out. If you haven’t had enough water, it will show on your skin in no time. Let’s discuss how dehydration impacts our skin and how to combat it, this summer.
Effects of dehydration on skin
Lack of water in your skin can cause itchiness, irritation and make skin sensitive. It can make your skin look dry, uneven, pigmented and bring down the overall appearance. It aggravates the darkness around your eyes and shadows on your face, making you look tired and mature. Although it is mistaken for dry skin, dehydrated skin is a skin condition and can be treated rather easily. Here are some easy ways to keep skin hydrated and healthy.
Thin, watery moisturisers with a gel formulation are the best thing you can give your skin in summers. These absorb easily and don’t feel heavy on the skin. Our bet is on the Dove 48 Hrs Nourishing Body Care Cooling Gel Creme. This smooth and light moisturiser is loaded with humectants such as glycerin, castor oil and caprylyl glycol to retain water molecules in your skin. This cream works well for every skin type and leaves the skin feeling cool and calm. What’s more? This provides unbeatable hydration for up to 48 hours!
Moisturise your body
Your body is also battling dehydration in summers, so don’t neglect it. Treat your body with a hydrating body lotion every day. The Dove Light Hydration Body Lotion is a fab pick for soft, non-sticky skin. It’s loaded with humectants and emollients to keep your skin hydrated, fresh and soft all day. This formula also sinks into the skin in seconds and keeps your skin supple.
Hydrate your lips
We tend to ignore our lips in the summer. We know that we need lip balm in winters but we need lip balms in summer as well as dehydration does not spare our pout. This can make your lips look darker and make the fine lines prominent. Use a hydrating lip balm every now and then to achieve the prettiest pucker. The Dove Hydro Nourishing Lip Care- Lip Balm is the only nourishment you need this season. This cooling stick repairs, hydrates and makes your skin look gorgeous all day long!
