Dry or dehydrated skin?

Dry skin vs dehydrated skin: what's the difference?

Healthy and radiant skin is the goal. However, to achieve this goal, it is important to understand what your skin's specific needs are. A common misconception is that dry skin and dehydrated skin are the same problem. In reality, they are two different skin conditions, each requiring specialised care.

Dry skin
Dry skin is often genetic and tends to produce less oil, resulting in a lack of lipids that protect the skin from moisture loss. Dry skin can feel rough, flaky and sometimes tight. Itching and cracking may also occur. Dry skin can be exacerbated by environmental factors such as dry climates, excessive washing with overly aggressive cleansers and hot showers.

To care for dry skin, it is important to use moisturising products that are rich in lipids (oils) and moisturisers. Creams containing hyaluronic acid, glycerin and ceramides can help to retain moisture in the skin.

Dehydrated skin
In contrast, dehydrated skin is a condition in which the skin has difficulty retaining water even though it produces sufficient oil. Dehydrated skin can often feel rough and dehydrated without necessarily being flaky. This condition can be caused by various factors, heat, air conditioning and even insufficient water absorption.

Caring for dehydrated skin requires hydrating products that improve the skin's ability to retain water. Products with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and natural oils can help to strengthen the skin's moisture barrier and protect it from water loss.

Whether you suffer from dry skin or dehydrated skin, choosing the right skincare products is crucial. Look for moisturisers, serums and cleansers that are specifically tailored to your skin type.
