Dehydrated skin can happen to anyone regardless of their skin type be it oily skin, combination skin or dry skin. It is the literal definition of your skin lacking water. Dehydrated skin often makes an individual’s face look dull and symptoms of ageing. How to figure out if you have dehydrated skin? Look out for signs as stated below:

  • darker under-eye circles, or tired eye appearance
  • itchiness
  • skin dullness
  • more sensitive fine lines and wrinkles

On the contrary, dry skin is associated with the oil producing glands across the face and the amount of sebum produced that isn’t enough, leaving the skin dry and flaky. This causes the skin barrier to fail in retaining moisture and fight against aggressors. Dry skin is a skin type which can be easily identified with a tight and flaky appearance.
