Why Every Skin-Type Is Dehydrated

Most people seem to think that dehydrated skin and dry skin are the same problem and that just isn’t true! Even the oiliest of complexions can be dehydrated as it’s all about how much water you retain in your skin and this can affect anyone.

If you’ve noticed your skin is feeling sensitive, looking dull, and pesky fine lines are starting to appear, chances are you have dehydrated skin.

Dehydrated vs Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, you may be used to packing your skincare routine full of hydrating products, but if you have oily skin you’re probably doing the opposite. The dryness of your skin is to do with your natural oil production levels, whereas dehydration can happen over time to anyone, so all skin types can benefit from hydrating products.

The best way to ensure your skin is retaining enough water is to use products which rehydrate the skin. Luckily, Clinique have got your back with a range of moisturisers all designed to combat dehydrated skin, no matter your skin type.
