How can you tell
if skin is dehydrated?

Dehydrated skin is thirsty skin, and it sends signals to let you know including feelings of discomfort and loss of radiance. Dehydration occurs when the skin becomes fragile and is no longer able to retain water.

It is important not to confuse skin type with your skin’s ability to hold onto moisture. Skin type relates to your skin's specific characteristics: oily, combination, normal or dry. Dehydration is a temporary condition that can affect any skin type, at any age. For example, skin can be oily and dehydrated at the same time. SEE MORE SEE LESS

Did you know?
Dry skin & dehydrated skin are not the same thing.

Dry skin isn't necessarily dehydrated.
While the two conditions are often mistaken for each other, the difference is simple: dehydrated skin lacks water, while dry skin lacks oil.
Dehydrated skin is temporary, while dry skin relates to a specific skin type.

What are the signs
of dehydrated skin?

When skin lacks water, its texture and radiance change. Fine lines from dehydration appear on the face. Skin is less supple and appears dull. You might also notice feelings of tightness and discomfort.

Once rehydrated properly, skin becomes soft, comfortable, more plump and luminous. SEE MORE SEE LESS


To check if your skin is dehydrated, use two fingertips to gently pinch the skin on the top of your cheekbone, just under your eye. If you notice the appearance of fine lines, your skin lacks water!

Why does my skin become dehydrated
from time to time?

Approximately 17 times a day, thermal shocks caused by sun exposure, sudden temperature changes, humidity, air-conditioning, heating, and pollution (including the harsh blue light from electronics) take a toll on our skin—causing dehydration and discomfort. Even mental and physical states, like fatigue and stress, can contribute to the problem. Hydra-Essentiel Hydrating Multi-Protection Mist’s soothing plant ingredients hydrate, refresh, and protect skin in the face of any challenge. SEE MORE SEE LESS
