Well hydrated skin is always renewing,
therefore it exfoliates more efficiently.
Drinking more quality water helps the body
to moisturise your skin from the inside out.
Dehydrated skin exfoliates slowly and
makes the epidermis layer much drier.
EPIDERMIS - The main skin cell that makes up the epidermis is called the keratinocyte it changes in their size and shape from square cells at the base of the epidermis, gradually becoming flatter towards the surface, by which time they have also lost their internal structure. Keratinocytes arise in the deepest level of the epidermis and new cells are constantly being produced. As this happens the older cells migrate up to the surface of the skin and eventually are worn off. When skin is hydrated well, cells migrate up more efficiently.
The Stratum Corneum: The outermost layer of the epidermis, composed of large, flat, polyhedral, plate-like envelopes filled with keratin, which is made up of dead cells that have migrated up from the stratum granulosum.
The Stratum Granulosum: In this epiderms layer, keratinocytes are now called granular cells, and contain keratohyalin and lamellar granules.[
The Stratum Spinosum: In this epidermis layer it is referred to as the "spinous" or "prickle-cell" layer This appearance is due to cell-to-cell adhesion (connections) of adjacent cells.
The Stratum Germinatum :It provides the germinal cells necessary for the regeneration of the layers of the epidermis. These cells are separated from the dermis by a thin layer of basement membrane. After a mitotic division a newly formed cell will undergo a progressive maturation called keratinization as its migrates to the surface.
DERMIS - It lies immediately underneath the epidermis It contains numerous specialised supporting tissues – as well as blood vessels, nerves, hair roots and sweat glands.
In all there are 4 layers of skin cells making up the epidermis, which migrate up through various layers over a 60 day cycle, until they are 'ejected' from the outermost layer as dead skin.


It is the deepest layer comprised of specialised tissues, blood vessels, sweat glands, nerve cells and hair roots.It is separated from the epidermis by a fine membrane.This is the 'engine room' of the skin. If the blood is healthy and fully hydrated it will transport essential ingredients efficiently to the dermis and remove wastes, ensuring optimum renewal of the skin 'cycle' above, in the epidermis. When blood is thick and dehydrated it becomes sluggish and less able to transport oxygen and nutrients through the thousands of extremely fine capillaries that support the dermis layer. The result is then reflected in the condition of the skin. Whilst the epidermis can be 'managed' from the 'outside in' with various skin care products, the real basis of skin hydration is derived from the action of healthy blood (92% water) supporting the dermis layer.
