Hydration Boosters


When the weather starts to change, my skin does too. For some reasons it has a little temporary freak out and becomes very dry and sensitive around these times of year. When the irritation strikes, I tend to strip my skincare routine right back and only use products that are really hydrating and I know work for my skin.

Starting with cleanser, the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel (£23.80, 100ml) is a lovely one to use both morning and night. It has a great plumping affect and leaves the skin feeling very soft. It comes out as a sort of gel - cream formula and when you massage it into the skin, it sinks in beautifully. It's also great at melting away makeup which is why I use it in the evenings too! Because this is slightly scented I did think it wasn't going to agree with my skin, but it's been lovely and really soothing.

Serums are something I always turn to in a period of bad skin. There are serums for everything so finding one to suit your skin concerns shouldn't be too hard. For hydrating, I of course use Hydraluron (£24.99) in the mornings and my trusty Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (£36.00, 30ml) at night. The former is perfect under a moisturiser in the mornings. It can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water which is why is so great at creating a moisture barrier. And the latter is just lovely. I've used this for a couple of years now and I love the way my skin looks when I wake up, so plump and illuminated.

If you're skin is more dry than sensitive I would recommend using moisture mask. The Superfacialist Rose Intense Moisture Mask (£8.99, 125ml) is a nice cheap option for adding a good bit of moisture. I find that with my skins current condition it does sting a bit so I've been steering clear - think that may be the rose scent which is fairly prominent. I've used this before however and it does work and makes your skin feel great afterwards.

  1. My skin got very dry around the winter time this year so I was very confused as to what to do! I've been using Simple Hydrating Lotion and it's been really helping! Great post I'll have to try these out.

  5. I never tried Hydraluron because having combination skin I thought it might make my skin to shiny, but I have been getting more dry patches recently so I may just give this a try, the midnight recovery is first on my hit list though, I keep hearing such good things about it! Great recommendations!
