I also had dry skin caused by strong acne products. The best thing I did was stop using acne products for a while to give my skin a break. Why? Because cosmetic irritation can lead to inflammation, which causes more acne! I currently wash my skin with raw honey, which is antimicrobial and soothes inflammed skin. Then, I moisturize with Vitamin B3 lotion, which is amazing. If you haven't used Vitamin B3, you might want to start now. Vitamin B3 lotion has been proven in clinical studies to increase the elasticity of the skin, enhance the skin barrier function, erase discolorations and improve the skin’s tone and texture.

 

Vitamin B3 application has been proven to increase skin softness, suppleness and skin hydration. In a lot of ways, vitamin B3 lotion performs better than many acne treatments on the market. For example, one team of researchers found that 4% nicotinamide cream (combined with linoleic acid) published was more effective in reducing acne than 1% topical clindamycin, which is a commonly used antibiotic. In another study, 4% B3 lotion reduced acne by 60 percent while topical clindamycin reduced acne by 43 percent.

 

Clear Skin Weekend blogs about B3 cream all the time.

Exactly what I'm going through some days I look as young as 15 but whenever I exfoliate to remove the heaps of dead skin build up and flakes I look like I'm way older it really frustrating and really hurts my self confidence some days I shut myself in the house cause I'm ashamed of going out I just don't understand why I get dead skin build up like this and whenever I remove it I use a washcloth lightly to scrub and I still end up with wrinkly big pores and oily skin for a couple days till it heals..

I've started using a Vitamin C serum to a positive effect. I belive Vitamin C has the ability to repair the dermis as well as the epidermis if it is at 10% and above with a low Ph (3.5 and below). If peoples skin has been thinned and damaged by a product, I believe a Vitamin C serum could be all what's required to help you guys out.
 
You can make your own serum cheaply enough if you get L-ascorbic acid and some pure water if you're confident enough. Alternatively, you can do what i have done and just bought one off Ebay.

 

Remember: look for low ph and 10% minimum for a serum.

 

Give it 6 months.

By "dehydrated skin", I'll assume you mean "dry skin". I've got a similar problem and cured it with something so simple... it's been around forever...

 

Vaseline.

 

It's got 97% moisture retention, more then the next best thing, Coconut Oil at 20%.

 

What I do is a spray a mist of cold water from a spray bottle on my face immediately after coming out of a shower (nothing touches my face, not even a towel - you should always air-dry your face, regardless) and put on a thin film of 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, specifically the Vaseline brand because I trust only name-brands when it comes to my skin health.


Worked like a charm the first night and every night after that. I wake up with smooth, hydrated skin every morning and never need to put on an extra cream.

 

Mind you this was a HUGE deal for me, being the guy who always had the Sahara Desert on my face every morning. Even after a hot shower my skin isn't dry. It's pretty unreal.

 

Just make sure you're not allergic to Petroleum. While it cannot clog pores, you still could have a reaction to the ingredient and breakout. I'd put a bit of it in once area of your face and see how it goes for a night, just to play it safe.


Hope this helps!

Drinking lots of water keeps you hydrated.  8 to 10 glasses of water will do.  Fruits and vegetable help you keep hydrated also.
