Dry and scaly skin? Acupuncture can help
The early sign of dehydration is thirst. If you are thirsty, you are in dehydration. The other common signs of dehydration include: dark yellow coloured urine and not passing much urine when you go to the toilet, headaches, tiredness and feeling lightheaded. How much water do we need a day? We need 1.5 to 3 litres to make up to the water that we loss every day in moderate condition. This is about 8 medium glasses of water. We may need more water during hot weather or physical activity. You can tell if you drink enough of water by the colour of your urine. If the urine is pale straw colour, you have enough water intakes.
There are three layers of the skin. The outer layer contains skin cells, pigment, and proteins. It is the outlook of the skin. It provides a waterproof barrier and creates the skin tone. In this layer there are no blood vessels and the skin cells are nourished by the blood supply of deeper layers.
The skin contains 64% water. Water makes the skin pliable and smooth. Dehydration causes skin wrinkles and is also related to dry, scaly skin and irritant dermatitis. Drink plenty of water to prevent the skin from dehydration. Exposure to cold, wind, sun and low humidity makes the skin dry; this is due to water loss and poor circulation from the skin.
Acupuncture can help increase water and oil content for facial skin. This is proved by a research paper. In this research, two women received five consecutive acupuncture sessions once a week for a month. Water content and oil content of the facial skin were measured and compared before and after the first acupuncture session and before and after the five consecutive acupuncture sessions. The result suggested that cosmetic acupuncture increased the water and oil content of facial skin in a female participant whose water content and oil content were lower before receiving acupuncture (which mean the skin was dry before acupuncture treatment).
