Skin lacking luminosity which feels dry to the touch.


The term ‘dull skin’ or ‘lacklustre skin’ usually refers to tired-looking which has lost its natural glow.

Dehydrated skin is sometimes discussed synonymously with dry skin. However, these are two different phenomena.

Dehydrated skin means that your skin is lacking water. It can be dry and itchy and perhaps dull looking, too. Your overall tone and complexion may appear uneven, and fine lines are more noticeable.

While dehydrated skin can be a nuisance, it’s relatively easy to treat with the right lifestyle changes. Treatment begins from the inside out to replenish and maintain hydration throughout your body.

Dehydrated skin can appear dry, but it's not the same as having a dry skin type. While dehydrated skin lacks water, dry skin lacks natural oils (sebum). Also, dry skin is a skin type, while dehydration is considered a condition. Skin types are classified as normal, dry, combination, and oily. You’re usually born with one type of skin, but it may change with age and season.

When you have dry skin, your sebaceous glands don’t produce enough natural oils. Your skin usually needs help with added hydration via emollient creams to protect from further moisture loss. At its definition, dehydration means that your body is losing more water than it’s taking in. Aside from not drinking enough water, this can be related to increased urination from caffeine or diuretics. It may also occur from lots of sweating from exercise. And even from incorrect use of cosmetic products.

Unlike dry skin, dehydration can cause the following symptoms:

  • Itchiness
  • Dullness
  • Darker under-eye circles
  • Sunken eyes
  • “Shadows” around the face (especially under the eyes and around your nose)
  • Increased incidence or appearance of fine lines and surface wrinkles.
