All about Hydration
From a basic cosmetic standpoint, a hydrated complexion looks more plump, healthy and youthful looking. Having an adequately hydrated face will help to improve skin elasticity which will reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Additionally, hydrated skin also helps to combat oiliness. Dehydrated skin produces more oil because it is compensating for a lack of moisture. Often to combat the oil, individuals believe that the best course of action is to try to dry out the skin (by using harsh drying agents and cleansers on their face), which is a common misconception. This often results in a long term problematic cycle that could have been easily treated. It's not too late to correct your skins hydration.
Dehydrated skin is also less resilient to environmental irritants. When your skin is fully hydrated, it is able to fight and flush out toxins more effectively because your cells are getting the maximum amount of hydration that they need to function at their best.
