How can you tell if 
skin is dehydrated?

Dehydrated skin is thirsty skin and it sends signals to tell you this, including a feeling of discomfort and a loss of radiance. Dehydration occurs when the skin becomes fragile and is no longer able to retain water.
It is important not to confuse skin type with its level of hydration. Skin type is about your skin's specific characteristics: oily, combination, normal or dry. Dehydration is a temporary condition that affects all skin types, no matter your age. For example, skin can be oily and dehydrated at the same time.

Did you know?
Dry skin isn't necessarily dehydrated

Dry skin isn't necessarily dehydrated
These two are often confused but the difference is simple: dry skin lacks oil while dehydrated skin lacks water.
Dehydrated skin is temporary while dry skin is a specific skin type.

What are the signs
of dehydrated skin?

When your skin lacks water, its texture and radiance changes. Fine lines from dehydration appear on the face, skin is less supple and can seem dull. You might also notice a feeling of discomfort, especially after your skin has been in contact with tap water.

Once you hydrate your skin properly again, it becomes soft and comfortable, and your complexion more luminous and radiant. See more See less


To check if your skin is dehydrated, use two fingertips to gently pinch the skin on the top of your cheekbone, just under your eye. If you notice fine lines appearing when you do so, your skin lacks water!

Why does my skin become
dehydrated from time to time?

No matter your age, skin is constantly exposed to external aggressors like the sun, cold temperatures and pollution. Each day, it can be subjected to up to 17 thermal shocks caused by temperature variations. What's more, mental and physical states like fatigue and stress can also influence the condition of your skin. See more See less

The secret to 
perfectly hydrated skin

Your skin is subjected to up to 17 thermal shocks each day . To protect and revitalise the skin, it needs to be carefully moisturised with a serum, a cream with hydrating properties.

Clarins Laboratories have been looking for a way to  boost the natural hydration process to compensate for a lack of water. The moisturising Hydra-Essentiel range is the perfect solution for dehydrated skin.

The secret? Organic leaf of life allows the skin to regain its ability to retain water, no matter the circumstances. See more See less

Organic leaf of life

Organic leaf of life:
the saviour of thirsty skin

Organic leaf of life extract activates the skin’s self-hydrating power. This fleshy-leaved plant remains full of water despite numerous changes in temperature. Changes in temperature from day to night, intense sun or annual rainfall, whatever happens, this plant continuously displays green leaves full of water. An example of self-hydration! Hydration is the key to achieving beautiful skin. Embrace a routine that reactivates your skin’s self-hydrating power. See more See less
