Dryness & Dehydration 101.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to keep it hydrated. When the skin is deprived of moisture, it can take on a look that’s dull and papery. Fine lines appear when skin cells aren’t hydrated properly, and over time these lines can deepen.
By moisturising twice a day, you can replenish your skin’s barrier, preventing it from becoming dry, improving its elasticity to reduce signs of ageing, and minimising the appearance of small imperfections like blemishes and dark spots. In a nutshell, moisturised skin is vibrant, healthy and plump skin, so why not take five minutes of your day to nourish it with the best skincare for dry skin?
There are a number of factors to look out for when choosing the best moisturiser for dry skin. One is the formula – you want to look for a moisturiser that is powered by the most hydrating ingredients in skincare. Opt for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and glycerin.
The second thing to consider is the aggressors you want to protect your skin from. From sun damage and pollution to barrier damage due to ageing and extreme weather conditions, a good face cream for dry skin should repair your dermis and shield it against everyday dehydrators, just like our Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator does.
We offer a range of hydrating skincare featuring special ingredients such as Activated Aloe Water, which is extremely effective at combating dryness and dullness. Activated Aloe Water gives you all the benefits of aloe vera, to maximise water absorption. Your skin’s cells will be flooded with hydration, giving you a look that’s youthful and lustrous.
Another ingredient to look for in dehydrated skin products is Gyokuro Green Tea. Featuring Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, this ingredient is enriched with antioxidants to invigorate your skin and protect it from damage. Hand-harvested in Japan, Gyokuro Green Tea will help to brighten dry and damaged skin.
And of course, be sure to keep an eye out for hyaluronic acid, the holy grail of skin hydration. As a powerful humectant, it floods your skin with hydration and replenishes your skin’s reservoir to maintain a plump, dewy complexion.
It’s easy to implement a skincare routine for dry skin: you only need to take a few minutes each morning to cleanse and moisturise your face, to keep it hydrated. Before bed, focus on repair by applying an overnight mask or night cream for dry skin, like our Moisture Surge™ Overnight Mask.
