Hydrating Face Mask

Did you know that dry skin and dehydrated skin are two different conditions? Surprised? Dry skin and dehydrated skin are often considered synonymous, when in actuality, they are a little different.

Dry skin is essentially a result of your skin producing insufficient sebum or oil. The lack of sebum means that your skin cannot seal in moisture, thereby leaving you with rough and flaky skin and a damaged skin barrier. People with dry skin have pronounced wrinkles, inflammation and sensitive skin. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, occurs when your skin is unable to hold in water though it produces sufficient sebum. This condition is often genetic and is common in people with oily or acne prone skin as they tend to use products that are harsh on the skin. Dehydrated skin feels tight, flaky and has prominent fine lines.

So why is it important to understand this difference? Because it determines how you take care of your skin. Dry skin needs moisturizers that are emollient-rich to prevent moisture loss, while dehydrated skin, produces adequate oil, but needs regular conditioning to keep it from drying out.

When treating dry skin, it is always best to avoid harsh cleansers and use mild cleansing lotions. Dry skin needs to be exfoliated regularly with gentle exfoliants like nügg Exfoliating Face Mask. Exfoliation is important as it helps get rid of the dead and dry cells and promotes cell regeneration, making way for new and fresh skin. Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, need moisturizers that contain humectants that will attract and seal in moisture, thereby keeping skin hydrated and nourished. It is also strongly recommended that you use gentle exfoliants that don’t strip skin of moisture or damage it.
