What is the skin pinch test?

The skin pinch test (skin turgor test) is used to determine if the skin’s elasticity is normal. It is a way to know if your skin is dehydrated. If you are normally hydrated, the skin will bounce back immediately after the pinch. On the other hand, if it goes back to normal more slowly than normal, then your skin is probably dehydrated.
