Here's The Actual Difference Between Dehydrated And Dry Skin
Before determining whether you have dry or dehydrated skin, you need to know whether you have normal, oily, dry, or combination skin. Once you know your skin type then you can learn how to care for it properly and what ingredients will help you combat your skin issues.
Dry skin is the skin you’re born with, so it may feel dry all year round, but especially in winter. If you’re experiencing symptoms like lotion quickly being absorbed after applying it, your skin feeling tight, and visible fine lines and flakiness then you’ll want to use products with lipids in them, like shea butter and ceramides.
Dehydrated skin means your epidermis is missing water and will simultaneously look oily and have irritated dry patches. You can apply topical products rich in water, but the only way to truly battle the condition is by finding the root cause which may mean changing your diet, skincare, or makeup routine.
