If you have acne you probably obsess over clogged pores. You watch them closely in the mirror as they enlarge and clog resulting in whiteheads, blackheads, and/or pimples. You try your best to keep them clear, but it seems as soon as you rip off that pore strip it will only be a matter of time before they are clogged again. But why? Why is it that some people have perfectly clear, tight pores and for others it is a daily struggle?
Is your oily skin actually dehydrated skin?
Have you heard of the hidden skin type dehydrated? Its not typically listed among the common skin types we hear of like oily, combination, or dry, but it should be. Not understanding this skin type could lead you to mistreat your skin and mistakenly categorize yourself based on your resulting symptoms. That is because dehydrated skin can try to compensate for the lack of moisture by producing more oil leading you to believe you actually have oily or combination skin.
