 What is dry skin?

Dry skin is a skin type that is often a result of genetics. However, it can also be caused by factors like a hormone imbalances or an underactive thyroid, both of which should be investigated by your doctor.

 What is dehydrated skin?

Our skin is made up of three layers of skin cells with the top layer (your epiderims) being coated with an acidic mix of oily lipids and waxes made up of sebum and sweat. This layer protects the skin by retaining moisture and preventing bacteria from entering the skin. When this protective layer is damaged – moisture escapes, leaving our skin feeling dry. The way that this protective layer is damaged is what differentiates dry skin from dehydrated skin.
