In the past week my skin has gotten dry. I’m talking foundation that won’t sit right, lines appearing more prominent, I’m not sure what has caused this sudden shift but there is definitely an increase in sensitivity around specific dry areas on my face. To combat the sahara desert going on I’ve been reaching for my tried and tested dry skin saviours. As soon as I start slathering on the hydration I see an instant improvement and am finally able to work with my foundations again. Whether it be a spray, mask or oil, these products knock my skin back into shape and bring back the glow.
When looking for an instant refresh either during my skincare routine or throughout the day, I reach for the Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Mist which yes, I’m still loving! It gives that boost of moisture without disturbing makeup making it the perfect mid-day refresher. If I find my skin to still be looking dry I reach for the GlamGlow Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment instead of my usual night oil. Described as an extreme hydration treatment, it restores and replenishes dry skin so I awake with a plumped up complexion ready for the day ahead.
If you would rather opt for a mask my fave is the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask. Not only is this super refreshing, it also cools and calms irritated skin. I always make sure I’ve got a mini pot of this to take away on my travels as it helps combat dry skin post flight alongside any tight or dry skin you might get from being out in the sun. A little trick I like to use when using a fuller coverage foundation with dry skin is to mix in an oil. Just two drops of the Caudalie Premier Cru Elixir and not only do I have a formula that works better with my skin, it also acts like a primer giving my skin the hydration it needs to keep my makeup in place all day.
Finally, we can’t forget about eye cream! The first area to get dry is the sensitive skin around my eyes. The only eye cream I’ve found to pack enough of a punch to help is the Clinique All About Eyes Rich. Whether it’s to combat dry skin or simply to care for my eyes after a night of full of makeup, this rich cream instantly calms the areas and provides the hydration it’s been craving.
