Skin tends to be­come thin and frag­ile when it’s not ad­e­quately hy­drated. This makes it vul­ner­a­ble to en­vi­ron­men­tal as­saults, bac­te­ria and in­fec­tion.

De­hy­drated skin can also peel and itch. When that hap­pens, scratch­ing can lead to in­flam­ma­tion, says der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Eileen Tan of Eileen Tan Skin, Laser and Hair Trans­plant Clinic at Mount El­iz­a­beth Novena Hos­pi­tal.

If your skin ap­pears red, blotchy or ir­ri­tated, look for sooth­ing mois­turis­ers like KIEHL’S DER­MA­TOL­O­GIST SO­LU­TIONS CEN­TELLA RE­COV­ERY SKIN-SALVE, $90 (75ML), which has aloe vera, honey and cen­tella p plant ex­tracts that quell ir­ri­ta­tion.
