Did you know that one of the leading causes of oily skin is dehydration? Did you know that skin that is often perpetually dry can also be from dehydration? Skin that is lacking moisture deep in the cellular level isn’t just “dry” and in need of some lotion; it is thirsty for rehydrating moisture that penetrates the skin and helps it retain water more effectively. Dehydrated skin can look very different from person to person. In fact, even if you have skin that is acne prone, that acne could be the result of insufficient moisture levels and skin that is dehydrated.

Hydrating your skin is completely different from moisturizing your skin. Moisturizing your skin can fix a skin problem that exists because of skin type. Dry skin is a common skin type. But if you feel like no matter which products you try, your skin is still not healthy, the problem could be deeper. Dehydrated skin can be improved with the right health and wellness routine, and the use of proper skin care products.

Dry skin simply describes skin that has fewer sebaceous glands, and therefore produces less oil. Dry skin can be helped by applying a good quality moisturizer, especially a moisturizer that contains CBD oil, a natural moisture balancer. However, dehydrated skin can result in a slew of unwanted symptoms that vary from person to person.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of skin that is dehydrated:

Skin can feel dry, tight, itchy.

Hollows appear under the eyes.

Skin appears thin and crepe-paper like under the eyes.

Tiny lines and wrinkles appear that aren’t usually there (this can especially be true around the eyes and mouth.

Lips may also be chapped.

Skin may be oily but also have some of the same symptoms listed above.

Acne or breakouts.

Let’s take a look at how skin becomes dehydrated in the first place, and how great quality products can help your skin rehydrate and protect it against becoming dehydrated again in the future. We’ll also look at some lifestyle changes that can significantly reduce your skin’s chances of becoming dehydrated or staying dehydrated.

Why is My Skin So Dehydrated?


We’ve all asked ourselves this question from time to time. Whether we visibly see the signs of dehydration on our skin (pesky wrinkles, hollow, sunken eyes, chapped lips) or feel the discomfort that comes along with it (itchiness, tightness in the skin) we are left wondering what happened.

Dehydrated skin happens when your skin doesn’t get enough water on a cellular level. Most people think this is a result of simply not drinking enough water. Our skin is comprised of 64% water, so it would make sense that if we aren’t taking in enough water, our skin would become dehydrated.

But drinking an excessive amount of water won’t necessarily keep your skin hydrated. Your skin could be dehydrated from your lifestyle. If you have a job that causes you to sweat a lot like working in the sun or lifting heavy objects, you could be losing moisture and electrolytes through your own sweat. If you aren’t drinking enough water to compensate, you will likely end up with skin that feels and looks dehydrated.

Another reason skin can become dehydrated is because of environmental hazards. If you are outdoors in extreme temperatures, live in places with drier air, or are exposed to a lot of pollution, the environmental harms can strip your skin of its moisture and cause serious dehydration and damage.

Thankfully, you can do more than just chug a gallon of water to help rehydrate your skin and keep it healthy. The likelihood that any of us are going to actually drink a gallon of water each day is pretty slim, so there needs to be a better, more viable solution.

Products That Can Help Rehydrate Skin


It’s really all about product ingredients. You’re obviously going to need a complete skincare lineup to help keep your skin in great condition, but what’s in the products is the most important thing to know. Here are some of the best ingredients for rehydrating skin.

CBD oil. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is an all-natural oil extracted from a species of the hemp plant. A high-quality, full spectrum CBD oil contains not only cannabidiol, but also other flavonoids, terpenes, vitamins, nutrients, fibers, and minerals provided by the hemp plant that can benefit your skin and help to naturally rehydrate it.

CBD has been referred to as a miracle rehydration ingredient. This is because it has the ability to rehydrate skin from its deepest levels. CBD oil penetrates the skin and can help lock moisture in. The natural oil is a great moisture balancer, too. If your skin is excessively oily, CBD oil can help dissolve the overproduced oil that sits on the top of your skin, because oil is capable of dissolving other oil.

Conversely, if your skin lacks oil, CBD oil can penetrate deeply and help under-active sebaceous glands start producing on a more consistent basis.

Probiotics. You’ve heard that they’re good for gut health, but probiotics are also great for skin health. Using a topical product like a good probiotic can help your skin rehydrate and function properly. When the levels of good bacteria aren’t correct, your skin can’t operate properly, which means it can’t retain moisture as well as it should. Restoring those levels of good bacteria can help your skin maintain hydration.

Plant botanicals. Nothing hydrates your skin like quality plant botanicals. From milk thistle to rose and tamanu, nature has given us the ingredients we need to have the healthiest, most hydrated skin possible.

The Perfect Skin Hydrating Skincare Routine


It doesn’t have to be complicated, it just needs to work. An effective, totally hydrating skin care routine can be as simple as four products used on a daily basis. Your hydrating skin care routine starts with a quality cleanser and ends with the right moisturizer for the job. Here are our favorite products for hydrating your skin on a daily basis.

CBD Exfoliating Cleanser. You really want to hit your skin with the CBD oil as much as possible. This is nature’s best and most effective hydrating oil, so using it to help cleanse your skin is a great way to keep your skin hydrated from start to finish.

CBD Facial Serum. QULCBD’s most hydrating product, a facial serum is like a highly concentrated nourisher for dehydrated skin. Boasting 500mg of high quality, full spectrum CBD oil, our signature probiotic blend, and too many plant botanicals to mention, using our facial serum can be a key to keeping your skin as healthy and hydrated as possible.

CBD Anti-Aging Moisturizer. Reduce the signs of aging and hydrate your skin at the same time by using a daytime moisturizer that helps hydrate skin to reduce the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. A great formula can help reduce the appearance of signs of aging and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful.

CBD Night Repair Cream. Your skin does most of its hydrating and healing at night while you sleep. Because of this, it is important you set the stage for your skin to do the most work possible by treating it with a night repair moisturizer that gives your skin the ingredients it needs to work hard during its night shift. Make sure you choose one that is packed with ingredients like CBD oil, probiotics, and plant botanicals.

Dehydrated skin is a condition that happens from time to time to everyone with all different skin types. Even if your skin is oily or acne prone, you can still experience dehydrated skin. It’s important to not only ensure you are protecting your skin from environmental hazards and drinking enough water to properly hydrate it throughout your day, but also take care of it with a super hydrating skincare routine that doesn’t allow your skin to become dehydrated in the first place. Using a great skincare routine with hydrating ingredients on a regular basis can help keep your skin fully hydrated and looking and feeling healthy, but make sure you still drink plenty of water!
