Dry Skin Woes? Or Dehydration?
We touched on this previously, but it bears repeating: Dry skin and dehydrated skin might sound similar, but they have different symptoms and require specific treatments. As the name suggests, dehydrated skin is due to a lack of hydration, not a lack of oil. As a result, dehydrated skin looks dull, lacks radiance, and may appear ashy on darker skin tones. On the other hand, dry skin is linked to a lack of sebum, and symptoms include flaking skin, roughness, and itchiness.
