Dehydrated Skin VS Dry Skin


Your beautiful, hard-working skin is completely unique. Do you know what it needs to thrive? For instance, the terms dehydrated skin and dry skin are often used interchangeably, but they actually refer to different conditions.

Dehydrated skin lacks water, while dry skin lacks oil. Here are some signs to differentiate between the two:


  • Tightness and dryness
  • Dullness and lack of radiance
  • Rough texture and flakiness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles that are more noticeable
  • Skin feels itchy and irritated
  • Sunken eyes
  • Reduced elasticity


  • Rough and scaly texture
  • Feeling of tightness and discomfort
  • Peeling and cracking
  • Redness and irritation
  • Itchiness and inflammation
  • Premature ageing
  • Dull and lacklustre complexion

It's important to note that dehydrated skin can lead to dryness, as the lack of water in the skin can impair its ability to produce oil, resulting in dryness. A professional skin consultation can help you to understand the needs of your skin more closely. Let's see how we can help your skin to be as happy as possible!
