Alert! Skin can also be dehydrated

Alert! Skin can also be dehydrated

Not only the body, but it turns out the skin can also be dehydrated. The good news is there are ways to keep the skin moist from the inside. Dehydration of the skin or dry skin is a condition when the skin lacks fluid in the epidermal layer causing a loss of the Natural Moisturizing Factor or the skin's natural moisturizing factor which results in a decrease in the level of humidity.

Be aware if you experience symptoms of skin dehydration as below.

  • The skin feels tight and itchy, especially after washing, bathing, or swimming.
  • The skin looks dull and feels rough.
  • There are fine lines or peels on the skin of certain body parts.

Behind Skin Dehydration

The outermost layer of human skin is called the epidermis. In this layer, there are 4 types of skin cell layers, one of which is the stratum corneum. The Stratum corneum (SC) is a lipid membrane - the most important protein when the skin is dehydrated. This fluid in the epidermal layer plays a role in maintaining elasticity and preventing the skin from drying out.

In this stratum corneum, there is an important component, such as a natural moisturizing factor (NMF) or natural moisturizing factor that is in charge of maintaining moisturizing fluid levels. NMF is a combination of hygroscopic molecules (attractive and retaining properties) that help maintain the hydration of the stratum corneum. Some of the contents of NMF are salts (including electrolytes), urea, and lactate. Amino acids are also stored in them.

This NMF production is very dependent on the humidity of the surrounding environment. When the liquid level is less than 10 percent, the surface of the skin will dry out. Dry skin may be a sign that the body lacks fluids.

You can prevent the condition of dehydration of the skin by drinking electrolytes regularly at any time, including before going to bed so that the skin is kept moist from the inside. This is because electrolyte fluids can replace the sodium, potassium, and magnesium components of the body lost through sweat.

Beautiful skin can be owned by anyone. But keeping it from avoiding dehydration is also very important. Drinking plenty of electrolytes will help maintain the moisture of your natural skin. At the same time, keep your skin healthy even though you are busy doing activities.
