Skin that feels dry, tight, flaky, or rough in texture needs some moisture replacement. But did you know, dry and dehydrated skin are two different skin conditions? And they need a different approach to remedy the symptoms. Let’s look at the key differences.

Dry skin

A skin type that lacks oil. If you have dry skin, you’re usually born with it, and it affects your whole body. Skin is thirsty and no amount of moisturiser ever seems enough! Skin can feel rough and even itchy. Look for lipid (oil) rich formulas with nourishing plant-based oils like Shea Butter and Evening Primrose Oil.

Dehydrated skin

A skin condition lacking moisture (water). All skins can become dehydrated as losing essential moisture from the surface layers of skin happens easily. Your skin maybe oily and breaking out at the same time, and often we dehydrate our skin by using harsh products or not moisturising. Look for water-rich ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid that boost skin’s moisture reservoir.
