Hydration is diagnosed into 2 categories. Dry and dehydrated. The symptoms can appear the same, but there is one main difference between them. Dehydrated means you lack water, dry means you lack water and oil. It is important you have a skin care professional diagnose this as the solutions are very different and if incorrectly diagnosed can lead to either to drier skin, oily skin or acne.
With dehydrated skin your skin may contain plenty of oil, but there’s no water underneath to keep things balanced and healthy. To compensate for the lack of moisture, your skin may overproduce oil. As a result, your skin can feel dry and oily at the same time. This overproduction of oil can result in clogged pores, breakouts and dry patches all at the same time.
Dry skin can seem similar, but it will be more chronic and can lead to excema in extreme cases. Because this skin is a result of a lack of oil. Your treatment plan is very different and will include oils, ceramides and essential fatty acids. Because a large part of this skin type can be a genetic internal imbalance, it can be treated efficiently but never cured completely.
