Dehydrated skin is lacking hydration and needs addressing at a point in time. Visible signs can sometimes be fine crepey horizontal lines across face. Skin can be dry, combination or oily skin type and suffer dehydration due to lifestyle, not drinking enough water, air conditioning, health and using incorrect skincare.


Hydrated skin is healthy skin.  Active hydration is critical to keep the skin both moist and also provide a barrier help protect it from the harmful effects of stress and pollution. 


Mature skin shows signs of ageing.  These signs are loss of elasticity or firmness, fine lines or deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone (sometimes with pigmentation). The skin can become thinner and more sensitised in some cases. 


Pigmentation is characterised by the the presence of excess melanin in the skin causing the skin to look uneven. It can be as a result of genetics but also occurs when cells become damaged by UV light (due to sun exposure), inflammation (acne), hormonal changes and environmental toxins.


Rosacea or Sensitive skin can be highly reactive, thin, fragile and weak, often with signs of telangiectasia (broken capillaries) and couperose.  They can be highly vascular, flush easily and be prone to dryness and irritation.
