Today’s post comes from personal experience, and it has to do with dry & dehydrated facial skin. I’ll give you some tips along with my favorite products, that have worked for me, and that I’m currently using.
First of all, if you experience dryness (along with dry patches), redness, or even burning sensation on your facial skin, the first thing you HAVE TO do is book an appointment with your dermatologist. He’s the one that will tell you what you’re dealing with and how to treat it right. The article below tells you how to keep your skin hydrated after it has been healed. So if you experience any of the symptoms above, visit your doctor, and start the treatment he gives you. After the treatment has been done, you can follow the steps below to always keep your skin hydrated.
Moisturizing is the key to keeping your skin hydrated, and dryness-free. If you moisturize your skin at night, and I mean every night, then you can say bye-bye to the annoying dryness. Believe me, I know!
The products below have helped me a lot over the past few months, in which my skin was kept hydrated, without redness or dry patches.
So here we go… After properly removing my makeup and cleaning my face:
- I use Beauty Cycle’s toning lotion (from the water-line), to freshen up my face, and prepare it for the creams.
- I use the Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder on my skin, which helps my cream get absorbed faster, and keeps my skin hydrated for a longer period of time.
- After that, I use Beauty Cycle’s night cream (again from the water-line) which does miracles in moisturizing, and which I’ve reviewed properly on my blog.
- And finish off my night-routine, with an eye-cream. I liked the one from Estee Lauder, the Advanced Night Repair eye, but I’m still searching for a better fit.
- For a “day” serum, I suggest La Roche Posay’s Hydraphase Intense serum, which hydrates your skin great, and it’s perfect before starting your makeup.
- And for a day cream, I’ve been using Clinique’s Dramatically different moisturizing lotion, which is amazing, but I rarely use a day cream anymore, since my night routine, provides me with all the moisturizing my skin needs. But if you do feel the need to use one, I strongly suggest this one.
- Last but not least, don’t forget to exfoliate and deeply hydrate your skin occasionally (but not too often) with a scrub and a hydrating mask. While I don’t have a scrub to suggest, I do suggest La Roche Posay’s Hydraphase Intense Masque.
Don’t forget to not only use these products on your face but also on your neck & chest, and massage gently.
These were my favorite products, which have really worked for me. I hope that this post will be helpful to many of you, and feel free to leave your comments and recommendations for dry skin treatment in the comments section below.
