My skin is currently drier than it has every been. I have gone into lock down and am trying to pull it out of the flaky, tender stage as soon as possible so I can actually do something with it!
Here are 5 products that I am using at this moment and are working their magic on the flakies.
This is a fairly lightweight but very hydrating cream that I use. I can’t have anything to greasy on my skin at the moment (especially under make up too) so this is very effective without being too rich.
This base is not for everyone – it can look a bit shiny and feel greasy but its for DRY skin. If you skin is normal or oily, choose a different base. On my very dry skin it worked absolute wonders and kept my hydrated all day.
3. Bobbi Balm Tinted Moisturizing Balm
If its not a Super Moisture Day then I use this – Bobbi Brown’s Tinted Balm. This has a SPF of 25, and comes in various shades (I use Medium/Dark). You use this in place of moisturizer as its rich so its good for lazy days.
4. Skincology Hydrating Treatment Primer
Love Skincology. Its a Taiwanese (I think) brand – they have tons of little sub brands under their umbrella – ella – ella, and the Advanced Hydrating range is my favourite.
This is a liquid primer – reminds me of SKII’s Essence but a lot cheaper of course. Pat it into your skin before a foundation application. Its on sale at ebeautyshop.com – the hardest site on earth to navigate so here’s a link to the product
5. Creme De La Mer Lip Balm
Gah – I know this is £36 but I love it – my favourite lip balm, I’ll even over look the fact it comes in a tub.
What about you? What are your dry skin savers?
