The premature appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is often a topic of dread among skincare enthusiasts. However, this is not necessarily a cause for alarm, especially when you are aware of the factors that cause signs of aging. Early signs of aging are commonly due to dehydration. Poor hydration is actually one of the top causes of premature aging skin which results in a dry, itchy, and dull appearance.
Skin is the body’s largest organ; it acts as a barrier, protecting us from harmful outside elements. As a result, our skin takes on a lot of wear and tear! This wear and tear particularly applies to your face and neck, and it is especially true when you are not properly hydrated. When your skin is dehydrated, it leads to a breakdown in collagen. The breakdown makes you more susceptible to premature lines and wrinkles because the skin becomes thinner. Dehydrated skin also tends to suffer a weakened defense of functions which causes it to lose its suppleness. Since your skin loses its defense when dehydrated, your skin will become more sensitive and react more easily to outside elements such as sunlight which influences the skin’s appearance. All of this contributes to dry, flaky, cracked, and rough-looking skin which leads to prematurely aged skin. Your skin will slowly but surely continue to age unless you properly hydrate it.
Overall skin health depends on adequate hydration on the inside and outside. Though the skin loses water naturally through factors such as sweating, it is quite simple to replenish the water loss through proper hydration by drinking water. Hydration on the outside, however, slightly differs. Hydrating your face is done by establishing a skincare routine including cleansing, exfoliating, and restoring the skin. This routine, over time, will retain moisture and maintain your skin’s barrier to promote healthy skin.
Simple lifestyle changes such as an updated skincare routine are right at your fingertips, and you will be diminishing the appearance of wrinkles in no time!
