Dry skin and dehydrated skin are often thought to be the same thing, but they’re actually two separate skin concerns. To put it simply, dry skin is a skin type (like oily or combination skin) while dehydrated skin is a condition.

Just as the sebaceous glands are responsible for oily skin, they also wear the blame for dry skin. Instead of producing too much natural oil, the glands are underactive. This results in tight, flaky and itchy skin more prone to the visible signs of ageing.

On the other hand, dehydrated skin is caused by a lack of water, not oil, which means people with oily skin types can also experience the phenomenon. Affected skin usually has a red, inflamed and congested appearance. 

The best weapon against dryness and dehydration is a skincare solution scientifically formulated for dry & dehydrated skin.
