Some of us suffer from dry skin and more of us dehydrated skin for a period at some point in our lives. As we age, hyaluronic acid levels decline and environmental and lifestyle factors can influence the condition of the skin, as a result the skin starts to suffer. At glo Skin Clinic we offer treatments and cosmeceutical products from the award winning skincare range of Glo Skin Beauty to effectively treat your dry or dehydrated skin concerns.
There is a significant difference between dry and dehydrated skin, dry skin is a skin type and dehydrated skin is a condition.
Dry skin is a type, like oily or combination, where the complexion lacks oils, or lipids, so it takes on a flaky, dry appearance. A a course of effective treatments will be advised and a daily homecare regime recommeded at a consultation with our skin specialist.

Dehydrated Skin is a skin condition that occurs when there is a lack of water in the skin. This can happen to anyone regardless of skin type – people with oily and combination skin can still experience dehydration. Dehydrated skin typically looks dull and can show premature signs of ageing, like surface lines, wrinkles will appear deeper and loss of elasticity. A consultation with our skin specialist will discuss a course of effective treatments and a daily homecare regime to address your skin concerns.
