Does your skin feel dry, maybe itchy and tight, especially after cleaning? Ad hoc sounds like dry skin. And that's when we learned how to apply lots of cream. Right? jain While dry skin lacks oil, dehydrated skin lacks water. These are two fundamentally different things.
Dry, i.e. low-fat skin needs lipid-rich care to protect it from drying out.
Dehydrated skin primarily needs water This can also affect oily and combination skin, although they produce enough fat.
The difficulty lies in finding the real cause. After that, the care routine that rebalances your skin is based on it. So much in advance: It can go wrong in both directions. Come on, let's look at both cases. This is how you can identify your problem.
☝️ Dry and dehydrated skin are often confused, but need very different care.
What to do?
The same applies here: analyze your skin. Find out what exactly is missing.
Your skin was always rather oily with clearly visible pores, but is it currently tight, looks pale and shows fine lines caused by dryness?
→ Dehydrated skin, lack of moisture here.
Your skin has always been a bit dry, is it brittle, scaly and ready to crack?
→ Dry skin, fat is missing here.
If you treat dehydrated skin like dry skin, it won't help. Products for dry skin are high in fats and low in moisture. It's like refilling the coffee machine with beans even though the water tank is empty. The skin does not get what it actually needs. Shestays thirsty, but shines like a bacon rind.
What she really needs is water. She probably doesn't get enough of it from the care - no wonder, you use products for low-fat skin. And she needs help saving. We have already explained in detail how this works. Here is the short version: The Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF ) is a mix of substances that bind water in the skin. It contains, for example, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and urea. Dehydrated skin needs just such ingredients to improve its NMF. They give you moisturizers. Oil-free serums that you apply in the morning and evening are ideal for oily skin.
