Skin Hydration Loss

Improve Skin Hydration for Radiant Skin

Why Is Skin Hydration Important?

Maintaining skin hydration is crucial for healthy and youthful-looking skin. Dry skin, lacking moisture, often appears rough, flaky, and can even crack. Dull skin shows a lack of radiance, making it look aged and tired. Without adequate hydration and nourishment, the skin is more susceptible to fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing. We provide tailored solutions to deeply nourish and hydrate your skin, combatting dullness and restoring a healthy complexion.

Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin is a common issue affecting people of all ages. While it might not be a serious condition, it can cause significant discomfort and itching. Various factors contribute to dehydrated skin, including underlying skin conditions, an impaired skin barrier, ageing, poor skincare habits, and environmental influences. At Hamilton Skin Clinic, we understand the impact dehydrated skin can have on your well-being. Our comprehensive skin assessment with the Observ Skin Analysis can quickly identify the extent of your skin’s dehydration, allowing us to tailor a treatment plan to restore and maintain optimal hydration levels.

Treating Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin is a common issue affecting individuals of all ages. While it’s not typically serious, it can be uncomfortable and itchy. Dehydration occurs when the skin lacks adequate water retention, often due to an impaired skin barrier. Factors such as ageing, poor skincare habits, and environmental conditions can contribute to this problem.

Signs of dehydrated skin include dryness, roughness, flakiness, lifted flecks of skin, cracking, peeling, and red or ashy tones. These symptoms frequently affect the face, hands, arms, and legs. Fortunately, professional skincare products and medi-aesthetic treatments can effectively address these issues.

At Hamilton Skin Clinic, our Observ Skin Analysis can quickly determine if you’re suffering from dehydrated skin. Our expert team can then recommend tailored treatments to restore your skin’s moisture levels, enhancing its overall health and appearance. Don’t let dehydrated skin hold you back—discover our effective solutions for a healthier, more radiant glow.

What Causes Dehydrated Skin?

Dehydrated skin can affect anyone, but certain risk factors increase the likelihood, such as ageing, a medical history of eczema or dermatitis, living in a cold climate, and working in environments requiring frequent contact with water, especially chlorinated water.

In addition to these risk factors, common causes of skin dehydration include

Cold Weather

Lower humidity during winter months makes dry skin more prevalent.

Air Conditioning/Heaters

Both heating and air conditioning reduce humidity and dehydrate the skin.

Drying Detergents or Incorrect Skincare

Ingredients that strip oil (like salicylic acid) should be avoided.

Bathing Habits

Frequent water exposure or very hot baths and showers can dry out the skin.


Hyuaronic Acid Volumiser

Our Hyaluronic Acid Volumiser treatment replenishes lost moisture deep within the skin, enhancing volume and elasticity. This advanced formula contains hyaluronic acid, a natural hydrating agent that binds moisture to the skin, resulting in a plumper and more youthful appearance.

Skin Bio Remodeller

The Skin Bio Remodeller treatment revitalises the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. It deeply hydrates and restores skin structure, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This bio-remodelling process enhances skin elasticity and firmness, promoting a smoother and rejuvenated complexion.
