Can Wrinkles Be Caused by Dehydration?

Can Wrinkles Be Caused by Dehydration?

We will all have noticed that when our skin is dry or dehydrated, lines seem to be much more visible and prominent. This is because dehydrated and dry skin loses its bounce and is much more fragile. At Nakin we dedicate our work to producing award-winning anti-ageing skincare so we spend a lot of time researching how we can help our skin to look as good as it can. Our products help to hydrate skin externally which helps to keep skin fresh and plump, but hydrating well enough internally is important for our overall health and can also help to keep lines at bay.

When skin is dehydrated it will never look its best. This is because dehydration causes skin to lose its bounce and shrivel, which shows up as dullness, lines and wrinkles. Dehydration wrinkles are not the same as the deeper permanent wrinkles. However, the problem is that once a wrinkle is there, it needs a lot of help to smooth it out. So, the longer your skin is dehydrated, the more chance that those lines will develop into wrinkles. The good news is that temporary facial lines caused by dry and dehydrated skin can be fixed, by hydrating skin internally and externally.

Hydrating Skin Internally to Reduce Wrinkles

To correct dehydrated dry skin, it is a combination of rehydrating internally and externally. We can rehydrate our internal systems by drinking lots of pure hydrating drinks: like water, herbal tea and coconut water. Just to mention that if you do drink a lot of tap water, you might want to filter it and include mineral options. This is because tap water generally contains heavy metals. Water For Health state that the water we receive in the UK, even globally, still needs better filtration. If you rely solely on tap water, you may be ingesting heavy metals like fluoride, mercury, chlorine and lead. Mineral water is a good option, but it can be expensive and has eco issues from the single use containers. So, filtering the tap water you drink is a good option to remove heavy metals.

Hydrating Skin Externally to Reduce Wrinkles

Using the right skincare and following a good routine will keep skin beautifully hydrated. Good cleansing helps to keep skin clear and bright, but also provides the best environment for skin to soak in the treatments applied after cleansing. This is because effective cleansing clears away grime and dead skin cells that can be drying to skin, and stop the actives in oils and serums working as best possible to hydrate and condition skin cells. Try our Anti-Ageing Advanced Cleansing Milk to cleanse without stripping, followed by the Anti-Ageing Purifying Face Toner to detox and purify. If you like to use a foam cleanser instead or a milk then try our Natural Rejuvenating Face Wash, plus for your exfoliation needs use our Natural Exfoliating Radiance Tonic that is filled with natural AHAs to renew skin in a kind and gentle manner. All of our cleansers have hydrating elements and contain hyaluronic acid to help to plump the skin externally.

Then our anti-ageing treatments help to hydrate and smooth lines, using potent plant actives. This includes hyaluronic acid that has an unbeatable skin hydrating ability, while plumping out the skin, as well as seaweed extract and antioxidant pomegranate. Nakin’s anti-ageing eye cream and anti-ageing face serum are superb wrinkle smoothers. They reduce lines with a special ingredient that is hibiscus extract, and is like a mild natural Botox for skin. After using the serum apply our amazing anti-ageing face oil.

Follow treatments with one of our moisturisers for long lasting hydration, nutrients and protection. This is the final step where the moisturiser will seal in the hydration and goodness from the serum and oil, as well as providing additional hydration and protection to the skin. Face cream moisturisers provide an invisible protection to skin that keeps moisture in, while also acting as a barrier that prevents water loss. Our range has the Anti-Ageing Matt Formula Face Cream for oily, normal, sensitive and combination skin, and Anti-Ageing Active Dew Face Cream for dry, normal, sensitive and combination skin. Finish with our gorgeous anti-ageing lip balm to deeply hydrate and protect lips.

We hope that you found it helpful to read about how dehydrated skin can cause wrinkles. Although they start as temporary wrinkles, when skin is neglected for long periods those lines can become more permanent. Dry dehydrated skin will never look its best. The easiest way to quickly improve wrinkles caused by dry dehydrated skin is to hydrate the skin both internally and externally. This will allow skin to bounce back and look soft, hydrated, smooth and glowy. At Nakin we love living a natural healthy lifestyle. When it comes to skincare products, we believe in using natural skincare that is kind to skin. Following a good skin regime morning and evening, as well as using cruelty free skincare is the best way to keep your skin clean, smooth, and glowing. At Nakin we believe in looking as good as we can naturally, and this is why we developed our award winning anti-ageing skincare range. A healthy lifestyle combined with always using the best skincare products is one of the easiest things you can do to enhance your look naturally.

Dehydration significantly impacts skin health, leading to the development of wrinkles over time. When the body lacks sufficient water, the skin loses its pliability and elasticity, making it prone to creasing and sagging. This reduction in elasticity occurs because hydrated skin is better equipped to bounce back from the daily expressions and movements that can otherwise lead to permanent lines and wrinkles. Proper hydration helps maintain the skin's moisture barrier, supporting its ability to retain moisture and appear more plump and youthful. Additionally, dehydration can also contribute to a dull and lacklustre complexion, as well as increased sensitivity and inflammation.

There are many factors that can contribute to dehydration and ultimately impact the health of our skin. These include environmental factors such as exposure to harsh weather conditions like extreme heat or cold, as well as lifestyle choices like smoking and alcohol consumption which can deplete the body's water levels. Certain medications and health conditions can also contribute to dehydration, with side effects such as dry skin and increased thirst.

To combat dehydration and maintain healthy, hydrated skin, it is important to not only drink enough water but also incorporate hydrating foods into our diets. Fruits and vegetables with high water content such as cucumbers, watermelon, and leafy greens can help provide the body with essential hydration. Additionally, using good skincare products like ours with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and plant oils will also help to keep the skin moisturised and plump.
