Dry or dehydrated skin
Both dry skin and dehydrated skin can feel uncomfortable and burdensome for many patients who visit our skin experts at the New Age Spa clinic in Montreal and Laval. Is your skin dry or dehydrated? Our moisturizing and hydrating the same thing?
What is dehydrated skin?
Dehydration occurs when the skin lacks water! Dehydrated skin is a common condition that affects all skin types and tones, as well as patients of all ages. Even if your skin is typically oily, there is still a risk of the skin becoming dehydrated. Skin that takes time to bounce back after a small pinch can help determine if you’re dealing with dehydration. Besides insufficient water consumption, dehydration can also be caused by weather conditions, diet, or environmental factors.
Though resulting in similarly uncomfortable symptoms, dry skin and dehydrated skin are different. Keep reading to learn about the difference between dry and dehydrated skin and how it should affect your regular skincare routine.

What is dry skin?
While dehydrated skin can happen to anyone, dry skin is a skin type. Like oily or combination skin, dry skin is a condition that affects many patients. The cause of dry skin is a lack of natural production of oils on the skin. The result of a lack of oil or lipids on the skin is flaky-looking, dry skin. People with dry skin are also more likely to experience forms of dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema.
