Moisture loss is a one-way ticket to wrinklestown.
Don’t believe us? Next time you’re dehydrated – after a night on the prosecco or endurance event – look in the mirror at your décolletage.
Here’s betting it’s wrinkled. The same effect applies to skin on your face, which can look years older within hours.
Moisture loss does not directly accelerate skin ageing, but it will accentuate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making a person appear older.
How Ageing Skin Loses Moisture?
-As we age, a reduction in function of the skin’s glands results in lower levels of natural lipids.
-Levels of ceramide (a compound naturally occurring in skin’s outer layer) also wane as we age, affecting the layer’s water-binding capacity. (Importance of hydration)
-Dehydrated skin disrupts normal skin function, resulting in skin cells that do not shed normally and build up at the surface, appearing rough and dull. Moisture also maintains the elasticity of the stratum corneum (the top layer of skin cells) and once it dries out, the skin becomes tight and susceptible to cracks or splits.
How to avoid Moisture Loss?
1-UV sun radiation damages the top layer of skin and disrupts the skin’s ability to make its own natural moisturising factors, Deleterious conditions for moisture include low humidity, air conditioning and heaters, long hot showers and wind.
2-Stay well hydrated and avoid excess alcohol, coffee and tea, all of which dehydrate the body and skin.
3-A good moisturiser speaks a thousand skin-saving words:
A good one will have three characteristics;
The occlusive component (e.g. lanolin or mineral oil) forms a protective film on the surface of the skin.
The humectant (e.g. glycerin, hyaluronic acid) attracts water from the deeper layers of the skin and ‘holds’ them at the surface.
Professional skin treatments concentrate on removing a lot of dead skin cell build-up in order to allow moisture to penetrate. “Alpha hydroxy acid can exfoliate dead skin cells but also to aid moisture.

While shooting Smart Travels with Vegan Smart, I had the opportunity to share my story with the incredible kids of Abraxas High School. Hopefully I lit a little fire in their hearts. Love these guys and hope to be back soon. .

Additionally, if you’re up for making waves with the plant-based message, maybe you’d be interested in being apart of the #VeganSmart team. They’re on the hunt for an ambassador to complete a 1-year contract to do some incredible work, and to showcase the importance of plants! All the deets can be found in the bio at the @livevegansmart page. Good luck ;)
