What is dehydrated skin?
When something is lacking in water it is deemed to be dehydrated and your skin is no exception.
Although dehydrated skin can appear dry, it is not the same as having a dry skin condition. Dehydrated skin is deficient in water whereas dry skin is lacking in natural oils. This means that the treatments that will prove most effective differ also.
Dry skin is generally due to your individual skin type and this means that your sebaceous glands do not produce enough natural oils. Dehydrated skin however is a condition, not a skin type, and it is an indication that your skin needs help.
The side effects of dehydrated skin usually involve a dry itching sensation, redness as well as flaking and wrinkles becoming more noticeable.
