Did you know, dry skin is a skin type, and dehydration refers to a skin condition that can affect all skin types including oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin?
Dehydrated skin, simply put, does not have enough water, and can be a result of many external factors, including weather, environment, diet, and caffeine consumption. This is when you need to include products that contain hydrosols, flower waters, and humectants such as sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, beta-glucan, pathenol and allantoin, then seal it off with an oil-based product.
What you may feel when your skin is dehydrated can be one or more of the followings:
The truth is, more often than not, when your skin feels ‘dry’, it is dehydrated, and not because you have dry skin. This is when you need to add in water to the skin, instead of using moisturizers that are primarily used for sealing in moisture——without enough water in the skin, there is nothing to seal in!

Dry skin produces less oil than normal skin, meaning the skin is without the lipids it needs to retain moisture and build a strong barrier to protect against moisture loss and external aggressors. There will often be no improvement despite using creams and moisturizers if you are not using the right type of products.
