THIRSTY SKIN ALERT
Do you know how to tell dehydration from dryness? If you have no idea how your skin’s nudging for a little more H2O, the signs are right here.
Find out if it’s dehydration or dryness.
THINGS CAN GET PRETTY DULL
Dehydrated skin can appear less radiant over time. Quit taking the foundation-highlighter shortcut, and score products that will lock in hydration for a natural beauty look! Even better, opt for something that sucks in sebum and mattifies skin without drying it out. Erborian Bamboo Glow, RM148
IT’S LIKE A SEE-SAW
Contrary to having dry skin, dehydration persists – the flaky appearance and itchy feeling will really annoy you, especially when it comes and goes! Excessive sun exposure might be the culprit here so don’t forget your sunscreen and opt for nourishing products that could put your skin in repair mode upon hitting the hay.

IT’S OILY AND DRY AT THE SAME TIME
Dehydration could happen to anyone, no matter your skin type. When your skin is both oily and dry (notably drier skin types lack sebum), it may be a response to contact with aggravating ingredients. Scout for something that isn’t overloaded with harsh chemicals (if possible, an organic product) that will help strike a healthy and hydrated balance.

OH NO, BREAKOUTS!
Your skin creates more oil to replace the water it’s lacking, and then comes the episode of ugly breakouts. A good way to deal with the problem is to sleep on it – with a mask that’s jam-packed with moisture of course! For extra TLC, make sure that the mask has soothing properties besides being able to plump up your skin after a night’s slumber. Diptyque Infused Face Mask, RM349
