We are in week 4 of the skin sins series – blog posts dedicated to discussing lifestyle habits that can wreak short- and long-term havoc on your skin. I’ve talked about some major no-no’s so far, like sugar, skipping sleep, and smoking – but this week I’m covering a somewhat trickier sin: dehydration.

Unlike a dry skin type that’s chronically caused by a lack of skin lipids, dehydration is a temporary condition caused by lack of hydration or trans epidermal water loss (TEWL – where water molecules are lost via the epidermal layer of the skin). While it has many causes, dehydration only means one thing for your skin: discomfort. Inadequate hydration can lead to skin that feels dry and tight, and can eventually lead to a rough, scaly, flaky, or cracked texture. The difficult thing about quenching your skin’s thirst is knowing what dehydrates it in the first place. Here are 4 things you might be doing to dry out your skin, and solutions for each of them:

1. You’re going cleanser crazy.

Cleansers aren’t one-size-fits all, and using one that strips your skin’s protective hydrolipidic barrier away leaves you more vulnerable to TEWL. Know your skin type and choose a cleanser that’s gentle enough for you, but still effective.

2. You’ve tuned out toner.

Toning your skin post-cleanse restores its natural pH, leaving it ready to absorb essential ingredients from the products that follow. Forgetting it can mean your skin doesn’t reap all of the benefits a hydrating serum or moisturizer has to offer. At the same time, using harsh, alcohol-based toners can leave your skin thirsty. Use a water-based hydrating facial toner to replenish moisture and prep skin for the rest of your routine.

3. You’ve encountered medication dehydration.

Certain medications like decongestants can dehydrate you. Quench your thirst by upping your fluid intake and supercharging your daily skincare routine with a skin serum loaded with hyaluronic acid – a molecule that can hold up to 1000x its weight in water and bind it to the surface of your skin. Applied after your toner, it will help smooth and hydrate and even boost the efficiency of your moisturizer.

5. You’re forgetting about your body!

Your skin doesn’t stop below your neck, so why should your skin care? Smooth away dry, rough joints and get rid of dull skin cells with an ultra-rich body creme. Apply it just after you get out of the shower (remember to keep the water warm, not hot) so your skin stays smooth and protected throughout the day.

Could your skin use some extra hydration? Tell me your biggest skin sin in the comments below and stay tuned for another skin sin reveal next week!

I am still in school studying Esthetics. Tons of clients have been coming in lately very dry and dehydrated-so much of this is from artificial heat from the car and home. I’ve been recommending BioElements Moisture X10 and WOW what a difference…That product is a skin Miracle.

I work in a hospital taking care of others all day. My own skin is often neglected and I am constantly using alcohol on my hands. This winter cold has given me dry, cracked skin on my legs, arms & hands. I could sure use some ultra rich body lotion this season!

These harsh and extremely drying winters in Minnesnowda, blasting artificial heat from a space heater to stay toasty when it drops below 0 at night, and with eczema and some meds, my skin is thirsty! These are just some of the reasons why I need some Bioelements! :) Your facial products are amazing and I’d love to try out some other body products. I bet this stuff is heaven! :)

Im 33, and it seems like since I hit 30, everything is in a big hurry to go downhill. I just feel like Ive lost some of that glow and freshness to my skin, face and body. Im not sure anymore of what to try and do. A lot of washes I use leave my face dry and then the lotions to greasy. And I dont know where to start on body lotion. Im not asking for 22 yr old skin, but 26 would do :) Looks like more water it is! My biggest skin sin is sugar. Thanks!

Dry winter sir is upon us, especially in South Dakota. With our morning lows in the subzero range (-20 where I live) my skin screams for added moisture. I welcome anything that gives my skin an extra drink of hydration to help relieve the chapped and sometimes burning sensation it experiences this time of year.

My skin stays dry no matter how much moisturizer I use. I live in FL where it’s tough to stay out of the sun, but I use sun protection. The skin on my arms and legs is the worst. Can’t seem to keep them moisturized at all. I use moisturizer on my face twice a day and it helps some, but not enough.

This time of year when we are all so busy, many of us remember to take care of our face, but carve out a few extra minutes by skipping body moisturizer — it’s easy to ignore when we are all bundled up in clothes. But winter is when you need that body moisturizer the most!!! I know I do!!

As the thermostat goes up my skin feels drier! Sometimes I’ll take 2 showers in the winter to take the chill off! That with eczema means I need moisture! Help!

I’m so good about using my moisture positive cleanser, power peptide, moisture x10 and crucial moisture on my face, but am always neglecting the rest of my body!!!

Living in the north, dry non-humidified indoor air wrecks havoc on my skin. I need to drink more water than I do and moisturize my skin more that once a day.

My skin is going through a dry spell right now. The winter cold wreaks havoc on my skin and I would love to win to get some extra help in the repair and defense departments.

I need this because my skin gets so dried out in the winter especially living in Vermont and I love Bioelements for my face care but haven’t used many of the body care products. I would love to be able to recommend it to others as well.

I occasionally forget my bedtime skin care regimen. I always pay for it the next day with breakouts and dull skin.
