Skin care tips for dehydrated skin with clogged pores

Sometimes skin issues come in pairs. Much as they sound like opposing skin concerns, you can have both dehydrated skin and clogged pores. Dehydrated skin can be a temporary symptom indicative of your body lacking hydration, external factors such as climate or sun exposure taking a toll on your skin, or hormones affecting moisture levels in your skin. If you have both dehydrated skin and clogged pores you should employ a diligent and specific skin care routine to help your skin look its best. Find out how in this article.

What Causes Skin To Be Dehydrated?

“Many factors can contribute to skin dehydration,” says Garnier SkinActive Chief Scientific Advisor, Dr. Angie Galdi, PHD. “Some examples include a weakened skin barrier, usage of harsh soap, or environmental factors, including temperature, humidity, excessive sun exposure, etc.” When skin is dehydrated, it looks dull, rough and has a lack of plumpness.

Skin Care For Dehydrated And Clogged Skin

1. Cleanse

Your skin may be dehydrated because you are using skin care products that are too harsh. Opt for something gentler that won’t remove hydration, but also deeply cleanses and removes any makeup from skin’s surface. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser is a multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.

2. Exfoliate

Removing dead skin cells from skin’s surface is essential to help both dehydrated skin (which can look flaky and patchy on skin) and to also keep pores clear of dirt and impurities that can clog your skin. Use an exfoliator such as Garnier SkinActive’s Clean+ Invigorating Daily Scrub formulated with Jojoba beads to polish and refine pores. Infused with peppermint, this exfoliator instantly energizes skin for a healthy look.

3. Hydrate

Now that you’ve removed your makeup and dead skin cells, give your skin hydration in the form of a nourishing moisturizer. Garnier SkinActive’s Moisture Rescue Actively Hydrating Daily Lotion SPF 15 quenches your skin and is formulated with glycerin, a natural humectant. This moisturizer can take your skin from rough and dehydrated to supple and glowing.

4. Protect

Dehydrated and blemished skin can be extra sensitive in the sun so it’s important that you protect it. Do this by using an antioxidant moisturizer with SPF. Garnier SkinActive’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is formulated with Vitamin C and E, pine bark essence, and gentle exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid (LHA). It has a fast absorbing, non-greasy formula and can turn dull, rough skin into smooth, polished-looking skin with a more radiant, even tone. It will protect and brighten your dehydrated skin and shield it from free radical damage.
