A Dehydrated Skin Edit + Giveaway

Tuesday, 18 Jul 2017

I know I have been harping on about winter and skincare quite a lot recently, but it is a true reflection of my current routine. I have been paying far more attention to my skin, and skincare routine, and I have really been upping my hydration and use of active ingredients. So, today I will share my Dehydrated Skin Edit with you, a few bits and bobs that have been helping me help my skin.

The Dehydrated Skin Edit

The *Beaucience Cleansing Gel cleanses really well without drying out the skin. I am always a bit weary about gel cleansers as they can be harsh on the skin, but this one is anything but harsh. It removes makeup completely, while still being hydrating.

I am loving the *SIX Skincare Soothing Lotion. It is a mist that hydrates and calms the skin. I use this after cleansing before applying my serum, and also after my makeup to hydrate and perk up my skin.

The Bioderma Hydrabio Serum is quite a thick serum that helps with my dehydration lines. It feels comfortable on the skin, absorbs quickly and makes a visible difference without being too rich.

Skincare for Dehydrated Skin

The *Vichy Idealia Energizing Day Cream is great for dull skin. It gives instant radiance to my skin while also helping with hydration.

At night I have been using the *Dr. Gobac Night Lift, and my skin feels softer and is plumper looking in the morning. And, I have one to giveaway too!

The *Beaucience Day and Night Cream is quite a rich comforting cream, perfect for winter nights. It also has such a soothing scent!

The Dehydrated Skin Edit

I bought the Cure Natural Aqua Gel overseas, and it is awesome. It is a gel that you rub on clean, dry skin, and it sort of balls up along with dead skin for a good exfoliation without being too harsh. Unfortunately it is not available in South Africa, but there are some similiar products, and I am giving one away!

The Jack Black Lip Balm is thick and moisturising and has a mint scent. When my lips need some extra care, this is the one I reach for!

Lastly, the Swiss Ritual Intensive Moisturizing Mask. This is a cream mask that hydrates and plumps up my skin. Unfortunately this is also not available here, but the Avene Soothing Moisture Mask is a great alternative that I love.

Now for a little giveaway!

      It’s really a great skin treat! Not sure why it’s called lotion, it’s more a hydrating mist in my opinion 😀
