Are you tired of dealing with dull or dry skin? Do you dream of having that donut glazed, Hailey Bieber dewy skin look? We totally get it and want to help you out. Did you know that your skin’s ability to retain moisture is super important for maintaining healthy and glowing skin? That’s where TEWL comes in – it stands for ‘Trans Epidermal Water Loss’, and it can be caused by factors like low humidity, injury, illness, and even some skin care products.
But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. To support your skin internally, drink plenty of water, limit stimulants and diuretics like caffeine, and include omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Avoiding long, hot showers, excessive skin cleansing, and harsh products, as well as being mindful of exposure to dry and/or air-conditioned environments, can also help prevent TEWL. Daily sun protection and topical niacinamide (vitamin B) are also key.
For external support, use products that aim to prevent TEWL, such as lipid, fatty acid-based emollients, beeswax products, and occlusives that provide a protective barrier. Humectants such as hyaluronic acid can also be used to draw moisture from blood vessels up to the superficial layers of skin and help retain it there. We love the Ultimate Recovery Cream by @medik8_australia for daily moisturization.
And for a visible hydration boost, consider a hyaluronic acid skin booster or microinfusion treatment that superficially injects HA into the skin, providing approximately three months of hydrating effects. By implementing a TEWL-preventing skincare routine, your skin will become more resistant to environmental pollutants, toxins, and harmful bacteria, and appear dewy, plump, and healthy.
