If your skin is looking lackluster, dull, or looking less than great, you might be wondering, am I dehydrated?
Here are some signs of dehydration that you should look for on your skin:
Your skin may be dull, may look paler than usual.
You’ll see dark circles under your eyes like you’re tired.
Your face will have more contours than usual and not in a good way.
You may see sunken eyes and cheeks.
Fine lines or wrinkles may appear or increase.
You may also experience other symptoms in the rest of your body. These can include tiredness, weakness, dry mouth, and your pee will be darker in color than usual. If you have any of these, you may be dehydrated.
Aside from that, there is one very simple test you can carry out at home to check your hydration.
On the back of your hand, pinch your skin between your finger and your thumb.
Now let go and watch how long it takes for the skin to return to its usual shape.
If it takes more than 1-2 seconds, you may be dehydrated.
If you are dehydrated, it’s time to make sure you increase your water intake. Aim to drink around eight glasses of water today to maintain a healthy water balance for your body.
Trying to find a routine that is perfect for your skin can be tricky, especially because everyone has slightly different skin concerns. Many of you know I love Sorella Apothecary and can’t get enough of their products. I devised a list of products that are perfect for your skin type. Most products listed are found in my spa and were chosen for cleansing and prepping, treating and correcting, moisturizing and protecting, and exfoliating and nourishing that may be implemented into your skin routine.
This is perfect for those who have concerns
about preventative aging, aging skin, and/or sporadic breakouts.
To cleanse your face, I suggest using the Apricot Mango Cleansing Milk followed by a Watermelon Mint Hydrating mist in both the morning and evenings.
After cleansing, I suggest using the Main Squeeze Hydrating Serum as well as the Lemon Lightening Serum to treat and correct the skin in both the morning and evenings.
To moisturize and protect use the Blueberry Milk Moisturizer in the morning and night and The Balm at night only.
Exfoliating and Nourishing the skin is very important. The Papaya & Pumpkin Mask, Cherry Pepper Peel, and Blackberry Lime Fruitfoliant are my personal favorites.
Additional products that are good for dry skin are the All Night Elixir and the Facial in a Bottle.
Normal or Combination Skin
This is perfect for those who are
concerned about preventative aging, aging skin, sporadic breakouts, and/or just
To start off your mornings and in the
evenings, I suggest using the Orange You
Jelly Cleanser and the Watermelon
Mint Hydrating Mist, twice a day of course.
Treating and correcting can be done
with the Main Squeeze Hydrating Serum and
the Pomegranate Acai Serum on both
the morning and night.
Blueberry Milk Moisturizers are great for moisturizing and protecting and should be
applied twice a day. I also suggest using the Tropical Topical Matte SPF 30 in the morning.
Exfoliate and nourish with the Cherry
Pepper Peel or the Papaya & Pumpkin
In addition to these products I also suggest using The Balm, All Night Elixir, and the Blackberry Lime Fruitfoliant.
Oily or Combination Skin
These products are specifically chosen
for those who have sensitive skin, frequent or severe breakouts, and/or are
concerned about preventative aging or aging skin.
I love using the Orange You Jelly Cleanser for cleaning and prepping my face twice a day. This can be paired nicely with the Spiced Wine Toner and the Watermelon Mint Hydrating Mist at morning and night, or the Lychee Willow Bark Deep Clean twice a week.
The Main Squeeze Hydrating Serum is great to treat and correct skin concerns twice a day, especially when paired with the Pomegranate Acai Antioxidant Serum or the Facial in a Bottle.
Daily Greens Moisturizer will moisturize and protect your skin if used twice a day. The Tropical Topical Matte SPF 30 is a great addition to your morning routine as well.
My top three products for exfoliating and nourishing would have to be the Cherry Pepper Peel, Mint Poppy Seed Polish, and the Papaya & Pumpkin Mask.
The additional product I recommend would have to be the Facial in a Bottle, Lemon Lightening Serum, and The Balm.
