What’s the difference between dry and dehydrated skin?

 

 

 

 

DRY VS DEHYDRATED SKIN
 

Dehydrated skin lacks water and dry skin lacks oil.

So your skin could be dehydrated, dry, or both. This is why it is important to choose the right products and know how and when to use them.

Dehydrated skin: tends to look dull and feel tight, even when properly moisturized. If you don’t already, use a hydrating serum that contain humectant ingredients.

 

Moisturisers provide a small amount of oil to help replenish skin's barrier function. However, the main purpose of a moisturiser is hydration.

Apply your serum before your moisturiser and / or oil to lock in the hydration.

Dry skin: lack of moisture (oil / lipid content) can result in rough, dry or flaky skin. If this is your skin, make sure you’re using the right moisturizing ingredients. We recommend oils because they penetrate deep into the skin.

 

Since the purpose of hydrating is to bind water to our skin and moisturizing is to prevent the water from leaving our skin, it’s important that hydration comes before moisturizing

This is why serums are to be applied first, as most hydrating treatment serums contain a humectant. Once you get that layer of hydration on, you want to follow with a moisturising cream or seal it all in with a facial oil. This combination creates a healthy balance.
