The terms hydration and moisture are often used interchangeably when it comes to skincare. In reality, both are quite different - their main function and ingredients are not alike. If someone is suffering from dry skin it means that their skin is not producing oil. On the other hand, someone with dehydrated skin means that their skin is lacking water.
