Do You Have A Dehydrated Skin?

Do remember to read my previous post before you read this post.
By now we should know the differences between skin types and they are critical for treating the needs of our skin. However distinction between different skin types/conditions are not always as straightforward as they appear. I encounter many thought they are oily skin type because they see oil little do they know that they are wrong.
I am not surprise many of us associate dry as dehydrate because some of their symptoms are pretty similar. They are both:
  • Flaky
  • Itchy
  • Dull
  • Sensitive
  • Tight
  • Cause lines and/or wrinkles
The differences between Dry and Dehydrate skin are:
skin type vs condition

Oily skin can be dehydrate and dehydrate dry skin can be confused as being oily. Surprise?
When the skin is dehydrated it creates more oil to make up for the missing of water, it forms a barrier on the surface to prevent the loss of moisture. This is when dry skin type people thought they have oily skin types instead. Overproduction of oil to compensate for dehydration can create blemishes and even breakouts.
It doesn't matter which skin types you are. It is best always choose a product that helps to hydrate. I have an oily skin type but hydration is always my top priority than oil controlling. It is a staple item for any skin types.
Skin is our last organ that absorb water, hence the nutrients that it consume isn't enough. We need some external help such as Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin.
