Working with so many different faces I know that keeping your skin healthy and glowing is the ultimate goal. However, it can be quite challenging to identify the root cause of certain skin conditions. One of the most common confusions is between dry and dehydrated skin. Although they might sound similar, they are two different skin types that require different treatment approaches. Let's explore the difference between dry and dehydrated skin and how to treat them.
Dry skin is a skin type that lacks oil production and is characterized by a lack of sebum. This can be caused by genetics, aging, or environmental factors. Dry skin tends to feel tight, itchy, and rough and can appear flaky or scaly. It is a chronic condition that requires consistent attention and care. The best way to treat dry skin is to use products that contain moisturizing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides. It is also recommended to avoid using hot water and harsh soaps, as they can strip away the natural oils and worsen the condition.

On the other hand, dehydrated skin is a temporary condition that occurs when the skin lacks water. Dehydration can be caused by various factors, such as weather changes, diet, or lifestyle habits. Dehydrated skin tends to look dull, tired, and lackluster, and can feel tight and uncomfortable. The best way to treat dehydrated skin is to drink plenty of water and use products that contain humectants, such as aloe vera, honey, and algae extracts. It is also recommended to avoid using alcohol-based toners and harsh exfoliants, as they can further dehydrate the skin.
