Hydrating Heroes For Dry/Dehydrated Skin


| 3 Hydrating Heroes For Dry/Dehydrated Skin! |

Whether you have dry/dehydrated skin or not, everyone needs a little hydration every now and then in their skincare routine. It's especially important in the depths of Winter as while your central heating is keeping you snug as a bug, it's wreaking havoc on your skin's hydration levels. Recently, I've been incorporating three new hydrating heroes into my routine to battle my dry skin, and they've been amazing so it would be rude not to share.......  

Cleanse:
I've swapped my usual makeup remover for a more hydrating offering in the form of Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. It's designed to dissolve makeup quickly and effectively and it does exactly that. It's safe to say that it's the best makeup remover I've ever used as it removes all product within seconds and does a much better job than my beloved micellar waters. It's a solid balm but when applied to the skin it melts into a silky oil, leaving the skin feeling plump and hydrated. It's fragrance-free so it's ideal for those with sensitive skin too. I tend to use a this as a part of a double cleanse but since introducing it into my routine my skin has been feeling softer. A makeup remover that removes makeup, cleanses the skin and hydrates it - What more could you ask for?!

Treatment:
A few months ago I purchased the Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask after having it on my wish list for over two years. I'm so glad I bought it as it's exactly what my skin needs. The apricot scented mask has a light lotion formula which is different to the usual thick creamy masks I'm used to. I find the lotion is good as it doesn't leave a greasy residue and it doesn't feel thick and heavy on the skin. The term 'drink up' is pretty accurate with regards to how the face mask works as most of it sinks into the skin but there's usually a little bit of excess that I wipe away with a warm face cloth. I'm usually left with soft, hydrated skin that feels plump and any flaky patches are significantly reduced leaving a smoother base for makeup. A must have in your skincare routine, especially during the Winter, if ask me!

Moisturise:
Moisturising is a key step in my skincare routine all year round but it's even more vital during the Winter months. The moisturiser that has been keeping my skin soft and supple is the Roger & Gallet Aura Mirabilis Legendary Cream*. The formula is quite unique to anything I've tried before as it feels like a hybrid of a gel and a cream. I love gel formulas as they don't leave a greasy residue on the skin but they're not the most hydrating formula. This moisturiser is incredible as it provides intense hydration like a cream but doesn't leave any trace of a greasy residue. It does have quite a strong floral scent so that may be something to consider if you're thinking of purchasing it. It doesn't linger once on the skin though so you won't notice it after you've applied it. I'm obsessed with floral scents so it's perfect for me!

The results the moisturiser provides is the best part! It not only leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated but it also adds radiance to my skin. I applied a matte foundation for the first time in a while and I couldn't believe that parts of my skin were glowing even through the foundation! I'm always after glowing, radiant skin and this moisturiser provides that result! 

I have tried a lot of moisturisers over the years and because it hydrates my skin really well and makes it appear radiant and healthier, I've deemed this as one of my top five moisturisers!
