What causes dry and dehydrated skin?
Dry and dehydrated skin are two different skin profiles that require a different approach to manage each. Dry skin is considered a skin type that doesn’t produce adequate amounts of sebum — a natural waxy oil to naturally moisturise the skin. On the other hand, dehydrated skin can be any skin type that lacks adequate hydration due to lifestyle factors, stress and hot showers or that is losing more moisture than you are replenishing through skincare and drinking water.
What are the common signs and symptoms of dry and dehydrated skin?
Dehydrated skin often appears dull and tired and is more prone to flaking and signs of ageing, such as loss of elasticity. As our body is mainly made up of water, you might also experience thirst, dry mouth or fatigue. Comparably, dry skin features a matte finish that can naturally feel tight. In contrast to people who produce excess oil, people with this skin type can show signs of flaking and cracked skin.
How often should I exfoliate if I have dry or dehydrated skin?
We recommend limiting it to once a week at most to prevent stripping away your natural sebum, which can contribute to worsening the signs of dry and dehydrated skin.
