First of all, the most important thing to know is what a dehydrated skin and a dry skin are.
Dry skin is usually dry (of course), but also rough and flaky. This can be explained by the lack of sebum, your natural moisturizer.
Dehydrated skin looks dull and feels tight, even when it is properly moisturized.
To summarize, a dehydrated skin lacks water and a dry skin lacks oil. It is also important to know that your skin could be dehydrated, dry or both.
This article will give you some information about the Vichy Célestins mineral water components and how it can help you to rehydrate your skin, not to moisturize it.
The first reason why you can have a dehydrated skin is the lack of water intake. Indeed, during the everyday life, people tend to forget to drink enough. Stress and overwork are not helping, as they reduce the sensation of thirst you should have. The same thing is happening to elderly persons because their brain functions are declining.
Sweet beverages and alcohol can also be one of the reason as it worsens the skin inflammation and boost the elimination of water.
Natural evacuation of water is also a reason: heat for example increase sweating, as well as exercises. Suffering from metabolic disorders or gastrointestinal disorders also increase this loss.
Moreover, burns, irritations on the skin, excess of sun exposure or Tabaco are known as factors leading to a possible dehydrated skin.
Well, someone who is suffering from dehydrated skin will have a greyish complexion. This is due to the structure of the skin: the microscopic scales are rougher than usual, increasing the small folds of the skin which reduce the light’s reflection on the skin.
To truly understand how the process works, take a blank sheet of paper, crease it and unfold it: the blank sheet turned greyish due to the crease it suffered from.
Dehydration also disturb the operation of the micro blood vessels increasing the pale complexion of the skin.
This French bottled water has a very rich mineral content which can be really helpful to fight against dehydration.
The first thing is sodium: during your everyday routine we lose a lot of it, mostly through sweating. It is contained in table salt, but excess of sodium chloride is harmful. This water is composed of sodium bicarbonate, a good way to satisfy the needs of our body without taking the risk of a high blood pressure. It is also a good thing to reduce acidosis, as the water is alkaline. Acidosis is when the blood contains too much acid, which can be harmful for the muscles, lungs and kidneys.
The second one is its lithium content: it reduces skin inflammations.
Last but not least, the organic silica: it is one of the natural components of the skin. It means that the structure of your skin will be improved, giving you a plumed and smooth skin. Lithium also has a positive psychological impact, as it is used for bipolar disorder treatment.
This is the expression used to define the positive effect on the skin offered by the French bottled water.
A better skin structure due to a better blood flow, decreasing skin inflammations, a better reflection of the light, etc. These are the signs of the Célestins complexion.
But the Célestins complexion comes also with a general well-being, due to the good hydration of your body and the lithium that the water is containing.
Do not forget, the best thing you can do against a dehydrated skin is to drink enough every day, and even before you feel thirsty.
