Hydrating Face Care
Tips to Keep Your Skin HydratedDoes your skin have dry patches? Are the fine lines getting more visible these days? Those are just some of the symptoms of dry skin. When your skin is dehydrated, it may even produce excess sebum in the T-zone area to makeup for the lack of moisture. Dry skin also often results in redness, fine lines and dullness. These are common tell-tale signs that your skin desperately needs hydrating skincare products. You should also drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated as a whole, and lather on a generous amount of moisturiser before bedtime. If you have dehydrated skin, you should use water-based moisturising products to replenish your skin’s moisture levels.
Selecting the Right Hydrating Face CareChoosing the right cleanser is important so you won’t strip your face of its natural oils, which further dehydrates the skin. A non-drying gentle cleanser like the Gentle Foaming Cleanser is the essential first step to preparing your skin for the benefits of other products. Great for everyday use, its creamy, refreshing foam removes impurities while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture balance. When it comes to cleansing without water, one of the best hydrating skincare products for dry skin is the Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water. This no-wash cleanser is great for dry skin because it softens skin with Peach Essential Water, while Coconut and Moringa extracts help to cleanse and purify without lather. It’s a gentle cleanser that leaves your skin feeling clean, hydrated and fresh. It also doubles as a makeup remover, making it great for long flights where you have limited access to water! Tone your face with the alcohol-free Toning Lotion with Camomile as it’s infused with plant extracts to hydrate and refresh your complexion. If you have dry skin, you should avoid products with alcohol because alcohol further dehydrates the skin and causes skin irritation. A moisturiser is necessary for your skin to retain moisture for long hours. You should look for a moisturiser that can deliver comfort and moisture to your skin at the same time. The Hydra-Essentiel Light Cream is a Clarins moisturiser that is perfect for those with dry skin. Enriched with Organic Leaf of Life extracts, this lightweight moisturiser melts into skin to boost the production of hyaluronic acid and keep skin soft and well-moisturised throughout the day or night. This Clarins moisturiser also keeps skin supple, youthful and radiant. For extra moisture, use a lightweight hydrating serum. While moisturisers usually cover the surface of the skin, serums contain active ingredients that penetrate into the second and third layers of the skin to deliver wholesome nourishment. The Hydra-Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum is just what every dehydrated skin needs, as it quenches parched or irritated skin through Organic Leaf of Life extracts and BeautyBerry. Women describe it as a “splash of water on the skin” – a burst of hydration. This hydrating serum also protects skin from sudden temperature changes and environmental pollutants. For best results, use it combined with the Hydra-Essentiel Light Cream. Your skincare routine for dry skin wouldn’t be complete without a hydrating eye cream. Try the Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask as a quick solution to tired eyes. Once or twice a week, just leave this hydrating eye cream on for 10 minutes and you’ll notice an improvement in the skin around your eyes. It’s a wonderful investment against crow’s feet and dark circles.
