Dry skin and dehydrated skin are two different things. Dry skin means that skin is lacking oil, while dehydration means that there is a lack of water or moisture.
Changing temperatures as a result of air-conditioned environments can displace your skins natural response to regulate itself.
By implementing a well thought-out skin care regime you can create a protective layer, reducing the impact of sudden changes in temperature and the environment.
