Best ways to hydrate dry skin

Some people have a genetic predisposition for dry skin, whilst others are more susceptible to environmental conditions and/or the chemicals found within mass-market beauty products. Dry skin can be uncomfortable, and it can also make for a dull complexion. If you’ve tried everything and haven’t been able to overcome your dry skin concerns, it’s time to try something different. Enjoy healthier, more radiant and supple skin with Sydney Hair and Beauty’s favourite skin hydration tips.

Use Water-Boosting Moisturisers and Gels

Thick and rich moisturisers aren’t always the best choice of product for your skin. If you have dry skin, what your skin really needs is water. When shopping for skincare products, look for products which contain hyaluronic acid. This is a water-attracting ingredient which will help to keep your skin hydrated all day long whilst restoring a radiant shine. These skincare products may be offered in moisturiser or gel form, and whilst they are a little more expensive than your standard moisturisers you can expect excellent results.

Drink More Water

It might seem straightforward, but many adults simply don’t drink enough water. The signs of dehydration quickly start to show within your skin which will become tight, dry and flaky. It is recommended that adults drink at least 8 glasses of water per day, which will help to flush out toxins and keep your skin supple and hydrated. You could also incorporate water-dense foods such as watermelon, cucumbers and lettuce into your diet which will provide additional vitamins and hydration.

Layer Your Treatments

Instead of just moisturising skin and walking out the door, try adding a hydrating mask into your routine. This additional layer will help to increase the amount of moisturising ingredients which penetrate the skins surface. All it takes is an extra five minutes, and when you wash the mask away you will reveal beautifully supple and moisturised skin which lasts much longer than moisturiser alone.

Carry a Facial Spritzer

Facial sprays are rising in popularity, and they are a great way to get refresh yourself throughout the day. Whilst water makes up the bulk of the formula, you will also find refreshing aromas and botanicals such as rose, coconut, lime and more. It’s the perfect way to pep yourself up and refresh your skin at the same time.

Exfoliate Daily

Exfoliation is important, as it helps to remove dead skin and make it easier for moisturisers to penetrate the surface. If you aren’t already, you should exfoliate daily and follow this up with a water-attracting treatment.
