The difference between a dry skin or dehydrated skin?


I get so many clients a day that say ‘My skin is dry!’ And 9 out of 10 the skin is dehydrated only. Of course there are dry skins out there. Sure when you have one there is no oily parts on your hole face. If your skin still has oil production the chance is sim that ia also dry overal.

The difference is in your fingertips! Feel your skin when it’s dry and uncleaned in the morning. Does it feel ruff or smooth. Especially around the nose and shin area. Do you feel scaly skin? Or is it more tight? When the skin is tight the skin is likely dehydrated. Dehydrated skin is not a skin type. It is more a skin condition like acne. Or when the skin is ruff to the touch. It is likely dry.

A oily skin can still be dehydrated. This is also the confusing thigh about it. And a face can be oily on the forehead and dry on the cheeks as well. But never dry and oily in the same area.
