An Easy Test
Worried that your skin is dehydrated? Here’s a foolproof test to determine whether your skin is parched. It’s called the pinch test, and it’s straightforward and works on every skin type. Start by gently pinching the skin on your cheek and releasing it. If your skin bounces back quickly and holds its shape, your skin is adequately hydrated. If your skin stays deflated, etched with fine lines, or does not bounce back at all, it’s a sign your skin is dehydrated and needs some diligent tending.
