The key difference between dehydrated and dry skin is classified as a skin type and is usually inherited. In short, your skin produces an inadequate amount of natural oils. On the other hand, dehydrated skin is a skin condition caused by external elements, from the weather to diet and lifestyle. All of these factors can deplete your skin’s water content, resulting in a somewhat dull-looking complexion. Note that even oily skin types can become dehydrated. The good news is dehydration can be treated with topical treatments and lifestyle changes. So top up your glass of water and use one of these thirst-quenching masks to get a hit of hydration to your skin.
