HYDRATED SKIN IS HEALTHY SKIN

Almost 9 out of 10 women say they have dehydrated skin*

Let's take a closer look at what happens when skin's water levels fall.

*Clarins survey, 820 women aged 25-50, all skin types.

Transepidermal Water Loss

What causes skin dehydration?

The exposome

External factors such as stress, pollution and sun damage encourage water to escape through the skin’s surface.

  • THE ENVIRONMENT
  • STRESS & FATIGUE
  • ALCOHOL & TOBACCo
  • EXCESS SCREEN TIME

When the skin lacks water, it becomes fragile and is no longer able to retain moisture. Skin appears dull, tired, with feelings of tightness or discomfort.

Transepidermal Water Loss

What causes skin dehydration?

Transepidermal Water Loss

Transepidermal water loss

Losing water leads skin to become dry and dehydrated. All skin types - dry, oily and combination - can suffer from dehydration.

THE SKIN QUIZ

Test your skin knowledge with
these quickfire questions

Dry and dehydrated skin are the same thing

False
Dry skin is a skin type, like normal and oily skin. Dehydration is a skin condition, like tiredness or irritation. All skin types can become dehydrated.

Transepidermal water loss only occurs during the day

False
Transepidermal water loss occurs all the time, not just during the day - so it's important to make sure your skin stays hydrated at night!

The exposome only includes external factors

True
Our skin changes as we age. Some of these changes are due to our genetics, or 'genome'. All of the other factors that affect our skin are caused by our environment, or 'exposome' - everything from our diet and lifestyle to pollution and the weather.

Skin loses up to 1L of water every month

True
Skin suffers up to 17 'thermal shocks' every day from factors linked to the exposome, for a total of almost one litre of water lost per month.
