dehydrated skin vs. dry skin

dehydrated skin and dry skin are not the same, something we find clients confused by all too often. although they share similar symptoms, dehydrated skin lacks water, while dry skin lacks oil. when your skin is thirsty, it can feel tight, itchy, flakey, and have a dull appearance. every skin type is at risk when it comes to dehydration because it can be caused by diet, environmental factors, and the wrong skin care products. dry skin, on the other hand, is inherited by genetics and is a persistent, ongoing problem…
