Dry skin is a skin type characterized by a lack of natural oils and lipids in the skin. It is usually caused by genetics, age, or environmental factors such as cold weather and low humidity. Dry skin is often rough, flaky, and can feel tight or uncomfortable.
Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a skin condition that can affect all skin types, including oily skin. It occurs when the skin lacks water, even though it may have normal or excessive levels of natural oils. Dehydrated skin is often a temporary condition that is caused by factors such as a lack of water intake, excessive sun exposure, or overuse of harsh skin care products. It is usually characterized by dull, tired-looking skin, and fine lines.
Our skincare products are specifically formulated to provide hydration and nourishment for dry and dehydrated skins, helping to soothe, make it supple and restore its natural glow.

- Premature aging: The lack of moisture can cause the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin look older.
- Weakened barrier function: The skin's barrier function is weakened by dry skin, making it more susceptible to damage from external factors such as pollutants and UV rays.
- Redness: Dry or dehydrated skin can also trigger inflammation, which can exacerbate existing skin conditions and lead to further dryness and itching.
