Dehydrated Skin Verses Dry Skin

There's a big difference between dry and dehydrated skin, yet both tend to feel the same. When your skin feels dry you may actually just be dehydrated and in need of water. Dryness refers to a skin type, while dehydration refers to a skin condition.

Dry skin means you’re lacking oil. You are generally born with dry skin and you will find most of your skin on your body will be dry, If you have a dehydrated skin, your skin is lacking water. This can be caused by a number of factors including makeup, diet, not drinking enough water and the weather.

You may find when your skin is dehydrated, it can create more oil to make up for the missing water which can cause breakouts, irritation and congestion. How often do you feel oily and dry at the same time?
