What is the difference between having dehydrated skin and dry skin? How to take care of it?
Updated: Feb 4, 2019
Dehydrated skin is one of the most common skin conditions. Due to lack of sufficient water, the skin looks dry and flakes off and feels tight.
The cause of the skin lacking moisture is usually the lack of sufficient sebum to prevent the loss of natural water, or excessive sweating and poor metabolism. Such as skin exposure to harsh environments without the use of sunscreens and skin care products; the use of inappropriate skin care products; such as inferior soaps and foamed cleansers; in addition, lack of sleep can make the skin lacking of moisture worse.
In these cases, even oily skin may dehydrate, causing the cell layer on the surface of the skin to harden and hinder the normal secretion of oil.
To treat dehydrated skin, the use of protective day cream with moisturizing hydration effect, especially products containing hyaluronic acid and regenerative factors to reduce water loss. In addition, it is best to do moisturizing mask on the face two or three times a week.
On the other hand, dry skin is due to the lack of active sebaceous glands, and as the age increases, oil secretion will normally slow down.
If the skin is exposed to harsh environments, resulting in insufficient moisture and lack of protection, the skin becomes drier.
The best way is to use a moisturizing day cream and serum that must be sun protected to form a protective layer on the skin. And a nourishing night cream is used at night, and a moisturizing mask is regularly being done.
Such problems can be selected from skin care products containing plant extracts, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, regenerative factors, peptides and mucopolysaccharides, which are better for both types of skin.
