Yes, there is a difference between a the two; moisturizing and hydration. Both are equally important for maintaining healthy, nourished skin. They are actually two different things, basically water vs. oil.
Hydration = water
Moisture = oil.

No matter what skin type you have or skin concerns. The important thing is finding the correct type of moisturizer for your skin type.

The truth is your skin needs to have of some moisture, to pump out extra oils to try and replenish itself. The correct moisturizing products for your skin type can help dry, flakiness and dullness. Combination or oily skin types can be more balanced. Moisturized skin looks nourished, smooth, bouncy and glowing.
