    Why hydration is important for your skin


    Hydration, we all know it’s extremely important for our skin. It’s been drilled into our heads time after time, and most products out there contribute to skin hydration in some way. There’s still those questions floating in our heads though,WHY is skin hydration so important? What exactly does it do for our skin? Lastly, what products are best when focusing on hydrating our skin?

    You’ve come to the right place, because we have all those answers.

    In this article, we’ll dive into why hydration is so essential to your skincare routine and what it does for your skin, like slowing down the aging process. We’ll also dive into ingredients to look for in your skincare routine that focus on hydrating the skin and what kinds of products we recommend to keep your skin hydrated and healthy.

    Why is Hydration So Important for Skin?

    Many people put dehydration and dryness into the same bucket, when in fact, they mean two different things when it comes to the health of your skin. Dry skin is actually a skin type, whereas dehydrated skin is a condition. When it comes to diagnosing dehydrated skin, it can be hard on your own, since oftentimes people assume if they have oily skin, it’s hydrated, but in reality, they’re two completely different things. 

    For this reason, since it’s tough to diagnose right at home, many people have dehydrated skin and don’t even know it. This is why ensuring that hydration is a huge focus in your skincare routine is essential. 

    A lack of hydration in the skin can show itself in a number of ways, including:

    • Acne & breakouts
    • Dull looking skin
    • Skin that feels tight (not in a good way)
    • Prominent wrinkles
    • More noticeable dark circles
    • Redness
    • Inflammation

    On the other hand, dry skin is flaky and oftentimes itchy. So there’s clear differences if you’re looking to try and self-diagnose.

    Seasons also have a huge affect on your skin’s hydration levels. The colder seasons will do more harm and many environmental stressors like the sun will do the same. That’s why, no matter the season you always want to focus on hydrating your skin. 

    If You Have Dry Skin, What Do You Do?

    When it comes to treating dehydrated skin, it requires a few updates to your skincare routine along with your daily life. 

    One of the biggest things you can do outside of skincare to cater to skin’s hydration is -- surprise, surprise -- drink more water. Not only does the inside of your body crave this to stay healthy, but it helps greatly with your skin’s hydration as well. 

    You’ll also want to add a gentle exfoliator to your routine. Since your skin’s dehydrated you want to ensure you’re wiping away those dead skin cells so that all your other products can be properly absorbed into your skin for maximum results. 

    At night, you might think you don’t need to use a heavy moisturizer since you’re not stepping outside into a harsh climate. That’s not the case though. While we’re sleeping it’s a time for our skin to repair, that’s why using a rich and intense moisturizer at night can really feed skin the hydration it needs.

    You’ll also want to bring a serum into your routine and use it before your moisturizer. This helps hydrate the skin, especially if you use one with hyaluronic acid, which we highly recommend.

    Speaking of hyaluronic acid… 

    Hyaluronic Acid: Why It’s Good For Hydration

    This is the hero ingredient in a lot of skincare products, and that’s because it helps greatly when looking at re-hydrating the skin. 

    Now, our skin does naturally produce hyaluronic acid, but what’s key to dealing with skin dehydration is feeding it that extra dose. What it is, is a sugar molecule that helps to bind water to collagen and actually trapping it into the skin -- that’s how skin appears more plump. 

    As we age, we naturally lose those collagen levels along with hyaluronic acid which is how our skin begins to get more and more dehydrated as we age. Plus the more we’re exposed to environmental stressors, the more our skin experiences tiny breaks in the protective barrier which allows moisture to escape.

    What products do we recommend?

    At KAPLAN MD Skincare, we have many skincare products that help you avoid dehydrated skin. All these products house essential ingredients that help your skin reach optimal health, no matter what the season or situation.
