Dry Skin

Dry skin is a symptom of underproducing sebum and can be due to a genetic skin type. Hormones, genetics, thyroid conditions, and medications can all contribute to dry skin. Dry skin is typically constant year-round but is worse in cold weather. Dry skin feels dry all over including the face, scalp, and body. Dry skin can be both dry and dehydrated due to pores being smaller in size.

How to fix dry skin?

To help target your dry skin try and include oil rich products in your daily skincare routine. Check out some of those products here. Creams, oils, and balms can all help moisten your skin and keep it looking healthy.

Dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin is skin that is lacking moisture from water. It is a skin condition that any type of skin may experience. Dehydrated skin may be temporary or seasonal. Dehydrated skin can feel oily and dry at the same time. This strange combination may cause break outs. Various causes of dehydrated skin include weather, incorrect skin care products, steam rooms, heat/air conditioning, pollution, and flying.

The best way to fix dehydrated skin is to include water rich products in your daily skincare routine. Toners and serums could be a great way to keep your skin hydrated. Another option is to consider a humidifier if dehydrated skin is caused by your air conditioning or heat.
