    Ascetic refers to someone who practises extreme self-discipline and self-denial. He can do that while living in a society or by living away from it.

    Hermit refers to someone who has withdrawn from society and lives a solitary existence. He need not practise self-discipline. 

    Ascetic is generally used for religious purposes. Hermit is not that common in terms of religious usage.
