Hydration vs Moisture

Hello everyone in the Picky community!! I've been reviewing the skincare I've been using in my routine and have come to realise most of it is focussed on moisture rather than hydration. The routine is something I've been developing on my own just through trial and error and is something I've currently happy with but while trying to be more intentional with the products I'm applying to my face I'm not wondering if I should focus more on hydration? How do I know if my skin is lacking hydration or moisture? Any product recommendations for someone with dry, sensitive skin?

If you lack hydration, you will feel as though your skin is tight and dry from within the deeper layers. If you are well hydrated, you can feel that your skin is plump and bouncy as though it's fully replenished with water from within💧 If you lack moisture, it's more on the surface level where your skin is dry and flaky, with little oils. When you are well moisturised, your skin will have a good balance of oil and water. To target hydration, look out for humectants that will draw water to your skin. To target moisture, look out for emollients that may have higher oil content. 🙃
