Ottawa Skin Clinic

Dehydrated skin is a condition caused by a lack of water in the uppermost layers of the skin. Because water is essential for healthy cell turnover, a lack of moisture means your skin cells can’t renew.

Dehydrated skin can lead to symptoms such as dry patches (which appear to have a rough texture or look dull), tightness, or increased sensitivity. Dry skin can also lead to premature skin ageing by causing fine lines. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkling and creasing because it doesn’t have the same elasticity or resilience.

Although they may look the same, dry and dehydrated skin are two different things. Dry skin is a specific type of skin, while dehydrated skin is due to dehydration throughout the body.

If you’re not adequately hydrated, your skin cells don’t shed as frequently as they should. This causes a build-up of dead cells on the surface of your skin which contributes to clogged pores, congestion, and a dull complexion.

If you are dealing with dehydrated or dry skin, don’t worry. At Dermis Advanced Skin Care, we offer a range of fantastic skin treatments at our Ottawa skin clinic to help restore skin hydration.
