Taking care of dehydrated skin? Easy as pie!

Taking care of dehydrated skin? Easy as pie!

Worried that your skin will become dehydrated during the hot summer months? Here are tell-tale signs to look out for.

Summer is here and that means it is time for your skin to be on full display. It’s a time of happiness, fun and laughter, spaghetti straps and shorter hemlines.

And although that might sound like fun, it’s key that you don’t forget to hydrate your skin. Drink enough water and invest in a good moisturiser. Keeping your skin properly hydrated does not only mean healthy, glowing skin but it can also help prevent premature ageing and ensure improved elasticity.

Not sure if your skin needs some extra moisture?

Look for the signs:

– The most obvious sign that your skin is dehydrated is if it is coarse to the touch, flaky and has dry patches.

– Sensitive skin is usually in need of additional moisturiser, especially on more sensitive areas like your elbows and heals.

– Your urine is also an indicator of whether you are dehydrated; if you are properly hydrated it will be almost clear in colour.

– Increased thirst or a dry and sticky mouth. Hot weather requires us to increase our water intake. Remember, if you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated.

Experiencing any of the above. Increase your water intake and invest in a nourishing body lotion or crème like Clere Hand & Body Lotions and Crèmes. These luxurious lotions and cremes provide 24-hour moisturising, as they are enriched with vitamins E & A and glycerine. The Clere Berries & Cream variant is a popular summer fragrance, as it evokes feelings of summer holidays and pampering while moisturising the skin for 24 hours.
