Dehydrated Skin #1

Dehydrated Skin
Dehydration means your skin is lacking moisture but not oil. Surface dehydration is a crippling enemy of the skin affecting up to 98% of the populations in varying degrees, and is associated with problems as diverse as scaly, taut skin, superficial lines and premature aging. In dehydrated skin becomes tight and irritated.

Home Treatment for Dehydrated Skin.
1.At least once a week treat yourself to a re-hydrating Homemade clay face mask for dry skin.
2.For dehydrated, parched lips you can use glycerine and milk cream.
3.Smoking is very devitalising and dehydrating on your skin. Even if you don't smoke, environments such as night clubs and bars, can affect your skin. Always ask to be seated in the non-smoking section in restaurants, and don't allow smoking inside your house.
4.Mix 2 drops of lavender oil with baking soda and water until it becomes a paste. Put on face and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse. Moisturize. This light, exfoliating mask makes skin more receptive to moisture.
5.Wash only with tepid water (hot water causes moisture evaporation), and look for moisture boosting ingredients like: Phospholipids, sorbitol, and panthenol etc.
6.Drink atleast 8 - 10 glass of water daily.
7.Boil ½ Cabbage in 3 cups of water for about 10 minutes (boiling). Strain and cool the water. Wash face with the cool cabbage water. It’s great for Nourishing the Skin. The nutrients from the cabbage nourish the skin.
