Literally just that?
I thought I had normal skin, then I think I over liked it, now it looks dehydrated.

It depends on dryness versus oiliness. If you have fine pores (not craters!) not much oil/none then you may lean towards dry. I personally do not believe that a grown woman has normal skin. I think only babies have a normal skin. As we age it veers towards either dryness or for some people oiliness. I have combination as I have an oily t zone. Dehydrated is not necessarily only seen on dry skins. Some oily ones can be dehydrated.
