Tightness and dryness are the telltale signs of dry and dehydrated skin.

But, these two conditions with similar symptoms have very different triggers at a cellular level. Learn the difference and find your products for hydrated, healthier skin.

Dry skin, or alipoid skin, generally refers to skin that is lacking in oil. Dehydrated skin is characterized by lack of moisture (water) in the Stratum Corneum. This explains why even oily skin can experience dehydration. As mentioned, dehydration is a lack of water, not oil. This means sebaceous oil activity can still be normal or even overactive in dehydrated skin.
