Dr. Abdulla answers our questions on hydration. Q: What are the causes and signs of dehydrated skin?
A: Many factors can cause skin dehydration, from stress and pollution to air conditioning, aging and using the wrong type of skincare! Dehydrated skin tends to look dull and feel tight. It’s important to choose products with ingredients that provide long-lasting hydration while minimizing water loss.
Q: How can we protect our skin against dehydration?
A: Look for naturally hydrating ingredients like plant mannose to replace lost water, and hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture and protect skin against daily aggressors while reducing the appearance of fine lines.
