Say Goodbye to Dehydrated Skin This Summer: Tips and Solutions

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, but it can also be a time for dehydrated skin. The hot weather, sun exposure, and air conditioning can all contribute to dry, flaky skin. That's why it's important to maintain skin hydration during the summer months. In this blog, we'll discuss the causes of dehydrated skin, offer tips for maintaining hydrated skin, suggest a skincare routine for dehydrated skin, and introduce Korean and Japanese skincare products that are specifically formulated to combat dehydrated skin.


Causes of Dehydrated Skin

During summer, the heat and humidity can cause excessive sweating, leading to dehydration. Additionally, air conditioning can dry out the skin, and sun exposure can damage the skin's natural barrier, leading to moisture loss. All of these factors can contribute to dehydrated skin during summer.


Tips for Maintaining Hydrated Skin

The first step in maintaining hydrated skin is to drink plenty of water. The recommended daily intake is eight glasses of water per day, but you may need more if you're spending time outdoors in the heat. Additionally, avoid taking hot showers, as they can strip the skin of its natural oils. Instead, take lukewarm showers and use a gentle cleanser. Using a humidifier can also help maintain skin hydration by adding moisture to the air.
