There’s a big difference between dry and dehydrated skin, yet both tend to feel the same – just plain dry. Find out the characteristics of each to determine which you might have!
When your skin feels dry, you may naturally assume that it is dry.
However, it might just be dehydrated and in need of water.
What is dry skin?
If you have a dry skin, it means you’re lacking oil. You were born this way, and you’re dry everywhere else on your body including hands, scalp, legs, etc.
When you put on moisturizers and lotions, chances are they soak up fairly quickly.
You may also regularly experience regular flaking, cracking, sensitivity or issues like eczema.
What is dehydrated skin?
If you have a dehydrated skin condition, your skin is lacking water.
This can be caused by lots of factors such as makeup, diet, incorrect product use, weather… the list goes on for dayssss….
But here’s where it gets tricky: When skin is dehydrated, it produces more oil to “create a balanced environment” – in other words… to make up for the missing water.
This can cause breakouts, irritation and dry patches.
Skin can even feel oily and dry at the same time.
