I have dry and dehydrated skin and I'm constantly on the hunt for skincare products to keep my skin soft and moisturised. I try so many, but I wanted to share four with you today that I think you need to try if you have this skin type too.
The Hero Project Hyasoft Instant Moisture Boost*, £19, The Hero Project
This is such a cooling and refreshing product to use. It's a lightweight clear gel that contains Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 to lock in moisture. The different types of Hyaluronic Acid it contains allows it to hydrate different levels of the skin - the surface to combat dullness, and deeper down to plump the skin. This product is an intensive moisture boost for thirsty skin that isn't sticky and absorbs beautifully into the skin.
The Hero Project Glow Drops Dry Touch Facial Oil*, £21, The Hero Project
All sufferers of dry skin need a good facial oil. This is a glow-giving and brightening oil that contains Vitamin C. It smells beautiful - I can't describe it - and is a dry-touch oil that's made from 98% naturally derived ingredients. I've been using a pump of this oil in the mornings before applying makeup as it really improves the surface of my skin and makes the finish of my foundation a lot nicer.
Manuka Doctor Drops of Crystal Beautifying Bi-Phase Oil, £29.99, Look Fantastic
Talking of oils, this is the one that I've been using at night recently. It's a heavier and more luxurious oil that The Hero Project Glow Drops, so I save this one for bedtime and pat four drops into my skin before my moisturiser. It's a bi-phase oil, which means you have to shake it to mix the two components together. Its key ingredients are Makuka honey and Makuka Doctor's own exclusive Purified Bee Venom. This oil adds radiance to the skin (via Chilean tree bark), as well as improving elasticity and promoting natural collagen production.
Badger Balm Argan Beauty Balm, £16.99, Bath & Unwind
This is an incredibly intenstive dry skin moisturising balm. I use this on my elbows to keep them soft and I cover my face in it at night if my skin is parched and needs some serious TLC. It is thick, slightly greasy and very tacky on the skin, but it has a delicious zesty orange scent and seriously sorts dry skin out. It's a blend of antioxident-rich oils, such as Argan, plus seabuckthorn (to provide anti-aging benefits via its tissue nourishing properties and to rejuvenate the skin) and rosehip (to protect skin cells from sun damage, improve skin tone and repair damaged skin tissue).
