Dry Skin vs. Dehydrated Skin. What’s the Difference?
Dry skin, as a skin type is alipidic skin that is not producing oil (sebum) in the skin while dehydrated skin, as a skin condition, lacks water content, but may still produce oil. It may be biologically inspired (genetic) or environmental. Dehydrated skin is common among those with oily and acne-prone skin who use harsh products that strip the skin of water. The most common mistake people make is thinking that their skin is dry when it’s really dehydrated. Dry skin is actually very rare,” says celebrity esthetician Joanna Czech, who works on numerous A-list faces. My face would fall in the category of dehydrated skin, as it still produce oil especially at my T-zone area. Even a beautician once told me before that my face skin is lack of water content, hence the pigmentation (looked like freckles) that I had on both of my upper cheek bone T__T
How do I treat my dehydrated skin? It is as simple as 'feeding' it with water to keep it moist all the time. Even as a person, if you're dehydrated, the only way to cure it is to hydrate yourself.
#1. I use facial products that aims in moisturizing care.
#3. Eat fruits and vegetables! My fave would be oranges and kiwis :D Oranges are rich in vitamin C, thus improving skin textures and clear skin blemishes. From a source that I read, it stated that consumption and application of Kiwi fruit helps ensure healthy, clear, beautiful skin.
#4. Avoid staying too often in air conditioned room as moisture evaporates quickly within the dry atmosphere of air conditioned. Besides, avoid being under the sun too often as well, thus shopping mall would be the best place to be HAHA jkjk
But still, I don't guarantee that all those steps above can 100% helps to treat dehydrated skin cause my skin is still in dire need of help.
