What is Hydration?

The skin contains approximately 30% water, which contributes to plumpness, elasticity, and resiliency. Water in the skin helps to decrease the friction between skin fibers, acting as a 'lubricant' for different skin layers.

How It Affects Your Body

Losing skin hydration can cause dry skin. Dry skin appears to be roughed, cracked, and sometimes is associated with itching and stinging sensation. Besides, extremely cool, windy or dry weather can also result in skin dryness.

Excessively exposing yourself to ultraviolet radiation (e.g. sun) will also increase the chances of skin dryness. Thus, it can damage the top layer of the skins, which lead to the loss of moisture (dehydration) in the skin, resulting in rough skin.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Drink enough water everyday to help improve skin hydration.

Skincare Recommendations:

  1. Skincare product containing emollients can help improve skin barrier function and improve the look and feel of dry skin.
  2. Avoid long-term daily use of a moisturiser on normal skin as it would affect skin barrier function, hydration state, and may increase skin susceptibility to irritants
