BEAUTY: How To Combat Dry/Dehydrated Skin

Hello! I don’t know about you, but the weather has made my skin go a bit all over the place. I’ve had random breakouts, unevenness and most recently: dry patches and overall dehydration. So, I’ve been picking out some more hydrating products to try and combat these two main skin issues.

First of all, I start with a very hydrating cleanser and none do it better than a balm. My favourite has to be Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, which I won’t talk about too much as I’m sure you’re all well aware of it. It does really soften skin, adds moisture and I honestly wouldn’t be without it.

After that I’ve been applying the infamous Hydraluron Serum, which genuinely does work with your moisturiser to boost the hydration levels of your skin. It’s very lightweight and practically disappears on application, so you don’t have to worry about the concept of applying a serum during the day.

On a night I’ll opt for an oil, as I feel like they work better than a moisturiser to combat those dry patches. You don’t even have to use one all over your face, just apply to the areas you think are drier and they’ll work their magic overnight to leave you with more plumped up skin the next day. Even though it’s classed as a serum, the REN Rose Moisture Defence Serum has an oil-like consistency and massively hydrates your skin. A new addition to my growing army of facial oils is the NUDE ProGenius Treatment Oil, which balances oil in the skin but, much like the REN option, does help with those dry patches.

If I really need to layer it up, after applying an oil, I’ll massage in a layer of REN Vita Mineral Emollient Rescue Cream. It has a really balmy texture, so you do need to apply it at night and really work it in, but your skin is left very soothed and soft!

So that’s how I keep the dry patches at bay when my skin is looking a bit dull and dehydrated. Treatments like oils really do work wonders and are definitely worth investing in! Plus, they last ages as you only need a little bit so a bottle will last you such a long time.

What do you use on dry skin? Any products I should be looking out for?
