Dehydrated skin is a common condition where your outer most layer of the skin is lacking in water and moisture. Everyones complexions are susceptible to dehydration regardless of their skin type, however it is not to be confused with dry skin. Dry skin occurs due to a lack of sebum (oil) production caused by a decline in sebaceous activity. Dehydrated skin will feel tight and look dull, dry skin will often be flaky and feel itchy.
Dehydrated skin is a temporary condition and can usually be resolved by introducing a couple of key ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid. Ceramides are lipids (fat molecules) that help the skin retain moisture and allow for proper function. and hyaluronic acid helps water bind to the collagen in your skin, keeping it the skin cells hydrated and plump.
