What is the Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin?

Difference between dry and dehydrated skin

Have you ever wondered about the difference between dry and dehydrated skin? For most people when you feel your skin and it feels dehydrated, you think that you have dry skin. Actually, dry skin and dehydrated skin are caused by two different productions in the skin. One is oil production and the other is water.

The Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Dry Skin: Dry skin is due to the lack of oil production in the skin. Some people think that no oil is good, but actually the oil keeps the skin in great condition. Skin with no oil will age faster as the lack of oil will make the skin more fragile. Also, the oil film on the skin will protect the skin from loss of water. Remember that if you pour oil onto water, the oil will stay on the top. The same goes for the skin as the oil will hold the water in the body. Dry skin not only benefits from additional products like the Flawless Drops added to the skin, but also internally with Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s fish oils.

Dehydrated Skin: Dehydrated skin is due to the lack of water in the skin. Hydration in the skin from water can be affected by lifestyle, nutrition, sun damage, and even redness. Drinking enough water is often part of the problem for hydration in the skin. However, if your lifestyle is crazy from smoking or say too much sun as examples, your skin will be hurt by the constant loss of water. The hydration of the body can disappear into thin air through perspiration, lack of water and other lifestyle choices.

For both skin types, avoid cleansers that over strip the oil off of the skin. Try an Organic Beta Cleanser instead. Dry or dehydrated skin can both damage the health of the skin causing the aging process of fine lines, wrinkles and other issues. If the skin is not healthy, it will not feel smooth and dewy on the surface. #bellabeautytip
