Short Description: Dehydration Lines
Definition: Shallow superficial folds (between 0.2 and 1 mm) located on the surface, which fade or disappear once the skin is well hydrated. They appear on all areas of the face where the skin is fine and fragile or areas that are particularly stressed throughout the day, most often around the eyes, mouth, etc. These are generally the first wrinkles to appear on the face, from the age of 25. This phenomenon can be explained by a weakening of the skin barrier, which no longer fulfills its role as a shield, gradually leading to the evaporation of the water contained in the layers of the epidermis. The skin then ends up dehydrated (water deficit) and small wrinkles appear.
Internal and external causes: Repetitive movements of facial muscles, fatigue, skin aging, pollution, tobacco, sun, wind, cold, heating, air conditioning
How to reduce or eliminate: Use products concentrated in moisturizing agents (hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, glycerin, etc.), as well as a moisturizing cream to recreate the occlusive and preventive film of the skin barrier; aesthetic medicine (mesotherapy, hyaluronic acid injections, etc.).
Preventative steps to take: Moisturize your skin every day; protect yourself effectively from the sun; gently clean and remove your makeup every day; drink a sufficient amount of water every day (at least 1.5 liters of water per day); sleep at least 7 hours a night; massage your face regularly.
