Dry skin is when our skin is lacking oil. Dehydrated skin is lacking water.
All skin types can be dehydrated. Dehydrated skin is a skin condition while dry skin is a skin type.
A skin type is what we are born with. Everyone has a skin type. With dry skin, we will notice that most of our body is dry and just soaks up lotions and creams like it’s extremely thirsty.
A skin condition is something that some people may have, but not all of us. They can include redness, inflammation, acne, sun damage and others.
Dehydrated skin may overproduce oil and cause breakouts. Dehydrated skin can also simply be very dry areas.
This is why water is so important.
