Don’t allow TEWL to kill your skin
A woman might develop TEWL both due to external and internal factors. The internal factors that are commonly responsible for this condition are dehydration, poor diet, and sleep deprivation. The external factor that is mostly responsible for causing TEWL, on the other hand, is exposure to extremely high or low temperature.
Women with TEWL develop different kinds of skin problems over time, for instance, dull, lifeless skin, ugly breakouts etc. To prevent your skin from succumbing to the condition, you will have to find the right antidotes. The tips below might help you.
Change your dietary habits. Add three servings each of vegetables and fruits to your daily diet. This will provide you with enough potassium, and sodium. Both sodium and potassium play extremely important roles in the process of replenishing water loss. A diet rich in those two minerals will help you in keeping your skin properly hydrated.
Sleep early. This is a must for every woman who wants her skin to be healthy and glowing.
Apply 100% organic hyaluronic acid on your face three times a day. This will hydrate your skin and prevent it from looking dry and saggy.

Massage your skin gently. Ideally, this should be done after applying hyaluronic acid.
Install a humidifier in your room. This will ensure that your skin doesn’t suffer from water loss.
