My face has been feelin so tight and dry lately and as a result, my makeup has been looking really eeky! And that is just unacceptable! So I've been trying out a few techniques to get the hydration back into my skin..
Here's what has worked for me...
This mask is a lifesaver when my skin is dehydrated. I apply it on cleansed face and leave it on for 30mins, then wash it off with warm water. I wrote a review on it here if you wanna read more about it.
This product is fairly new to my skincare collection and so far I'm loving it. It's toner that promises hydration, improvement in skin texture, and contains antioxidant properties which help fight signs of ageing and environmental damage.
There aren't many reviews on this but this is such a great hydrating toner.. I spray this all over my dry face.. Let it sit for 5 seconds and while it's still wet I go on to step 3...
Now this I'm sure many of you have heard of.. It's a blend of various oils that help hydrate, regenerate, repair and replenish your skin. This product 99.8% natural so that's a great bonus! I used to use the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and this is very similar to it but in an oil form and more natural.
So I apply a few drops of this while the toner/mist is still on my face and massage in. I can instantly feel my thirsty skin quenching on to this oil. It's lovely. And because my face is damp when I apply this, I only need 2-3 drops for my face and neck..
I have been doing these 3 simple steps day and night for the past few days and my flakiness is practically gone and my skin is happy!
The main tip here is to apply your serum or moisturizer while your toner is still wet as it will help the product sink in better as well as last much longer.
Hope this helps all those dehydrated faces out there =)
