  5. Dry vs Dehydrated Skin

Is your skin dry or dehydrated? Did you both exhibit the same behaviour, but, have a few differences?

These differences reflect in the skin condition they describe, and the underlying symptoms that encourage these respective skin concerns. 

If the skin is left un hydrated it tends to weaken your skin’s framework and cause further damage to your skin. Providing your skin with missing moisture ensures your skin isn’t vulnerable to any skin concerns or diseases.

Find out the characteristics of each to determine what your specific concern by taking our SkinID.

What Do They Define?

There is a situation of skin type and skin condition. Skin type is your particular skin behaviour like dry skin, whereas, a skin condition. Dehydrated skin induces other skin concerns like acne, irritation and skin sensitivity.
Dry skin is generally characterized by the lack of natural oils in the skin. Both of which can be addressed with the right skin care and lifestyle practices. Dehydrated skin, also lacks essential moisture. While the latter can be the result of harsh makeup, skin care, long hot showers and air conditioning.

  • Skin tends to become rough and patchy over time
  • Skin becomes very dry due to loss of moisture
  • Skin is flaky due to excess dryness

  • Skin appears dull in appearance and dry in texture
  • Skin feels tight and uncomfortable
  • Skin texture feels rough in texture due to dehydration
  • Skin is vulnerable to sensitivities very often
  • Accelerated premature signs of aging- fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin
