What Causes Dehydration Lines?

When your skin is dehydrated, there is a lack of water in your surface skin cells, causing your skin to lose elasticity and allowing fine dehydration lines to appear. This can be caused by not drinking enough water, consuming high levels of salt, drinking too much alcohol and external elements like weather and seasonal changes.

How to Target Dehydration Lines

The best thing you can do to reduce the appearance of dehydration lines that may appear on your forehead or under your eyes is to drink plenty of water and adjust your skincare routine with hydrating formulas.

Two MAGICAL skincare ingredients heroed for their hydration properties are hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid. Also known as humectants, these ultra-hydrating skincare ingredients flood your skin with hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration.

Hyaluronic acid

Carrying up to 1000x its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is a sugar substance that’s naturally produced by the skin.. This MAGIC ingredient can be found in many of Charlotte’s skincare and makeup products including Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Cryo-Recovery Eye Serum and Charlotte's Magic Serum Crystal Elixir.

Polyglutamic acid

4X more hydrating than hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid is another hydration powerhouse that cocoons your skin in moisture for a HYDRATED glow. Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir contains this MAGIC ingredient, providing intense hydration for a more supple, plumper-looking appearance, which in turn contributes to reducing the appearance of fine lines and promoting younger-looking skin.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a sign of ageing and maturing skin. As you get older, your collagen and elastin levels (which keep skin looking and feeling SMOOTH and SUPPLE) break down, causing your skin to lose its elasticity and bounciness and allowing fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

The appearance of wrinkles can also be accelerated by long-term sun exposure and repeated facial expressions.

How to Target Wrinkles

If you’re dealing with fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin as a result of the ageing process, there are ways to reduce their appearance. Many of Charlotte’s skincare products are specially designed for more YOUTHFUL-LOOKING skin…
