I know what you’re thinking - what’s the difference between dehydrated skin and dry skin? To put it simply - dehydrated skin is a temporary state your skin can be in, while dry skin is a skin type. Yep, that means that it’s possible to have oily, yet dehydrated skin - but it’s also possible to have dry and dehydrated skin. Crazy, right? Here’s our guide to the best skin care products for dehydrated skin.

Signs That You Need Skin Care Products for Dry, Dehydrated Skin

Here are some clues to look for if you think your skin is dehydrated! One is the sudden presence of wrinkles. Like, wrinkles that you’re sure weren’t there yesterday. Dehydrated skin can look wrinkly thanks to a lack of water in the skin to plump it up. 

Feelings of dryness and itchiness will come and go on dehydrated skin (but stick around if you have dry skin). Dehydrated skin can also lead to more breakouts, as skin isn’t able to shed excess skin cells as quickly as it should be. 

How to Choose the Best Skin Care Products for Dehydrated Skin

Sorting out dehydrated skin is usually as easy as increasing water levels in the skin, using humectant ingredients such as hyaluronic acid to attract water in the skin. A hyaluronic acid serum is a must-have for dehydrated skin. The best strategy to plump skin involves using one of these handy humectants, then locking all that goodness in with an occlusive ingredient. 

Oil-based serums are a great option for this since oils prevent any excess water escaping the skin. You might notice that there’s an overlap when it comes to skin care products for dry/dehydrated skin, and it’s true that they can both be helped with a similar routine.
