Dehydrated skin and dry skin mean the same thing

FALSE (and TRUE)
Dehydrated skin is skin that lacks water. Dry skin is skin that is lacking in lipids. However, some dry skins can also lack water and therefore be both dry and dehydrated.

Sensitive skin is allergenic skin

The hyper-reactivity of sensitive skin is not linked to an allergy but to an abnormal excitability of the skin’s nerve endings. It can be of environmental, vascular or contact origin or be linked to an atopic skin.
