Spotting the signs of dehydration

For the longest time I thought I just had excessively oily skinโ€ฆ it was a real lightbulb moment for me when I realised that the oily, slightly flakey (almost scaly texture) on my forehead was actually a sign of dehydration. Why did nobody tell me this growing up!?! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜… As soon as that clicked and I started focusing on adding in quality, hydrating and occlusive products to my routine, it was like I had a whole new face! Anyway, the key takeaway I want to share is that, itโ€™s not just obviously dry skin thatโ€™s dehydrated - oily skin can & does get dehydrated too!
