I know it sounds crazy, dehydrated skin in summer, but it’s a reality for so many of us. Summer time in the Midwest is all about getting as much sun as you can as fast as you can before it goes away again. This means biking, hiking, pools, splash pads, cocktails on the back porch, and lots and lots of AC when you get into the house again. Too much sun, chlorine, sweat, and the summertime skin care slacking, can really make your skin lose water in its upper layers making it dull, dry, tight, and flaky, these are all signs of dehydration.
Dehydration can happen to anyone, even oily skin (although it is less prone), it’s all about a lack of water. Hydrated skin has a subtle glow to it, it has a bounce, it naturally reflects light the way you wish that highlighter in your makeup bag would, but it’s also less prone to sensitivities, redness, and clogging.
