Hydration Heroes

During the Autumn and Winter months, my skin often feels parched, irritated and dehydrated from the changing weather and season. Today I have put together a handful of products that I turn to whenever my skin is in need of some extra TLC and hydration. From a rich moisturiser to luxurious shower gel, I have products that will nourish your skin from head to toe.

Although I don't usually opt for a nourishing cleanser, recently I have found that using simple, non-comedogenic formulas have really benefited my skin. I have been reaching for the La Roche Posay Toleriane Dermo Cleanser* to clear skin and melt away my make up. Enriched with glycerine and thermal spring water, this cleanser will gently hydrate, soften and soothe the skin. 

As I've got older my skin has got drier and more sensitive, meaning I have to pack it full of moisture on a regular basis. The one moisturiser I have been going to throughout September have been the Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep* as it helps to revive and replenish the skin, making it appear more fresh and radiant. Hyalyronic acid stimulates cell regeneration, caffeine stimulates microcirculation and salicylic acid evens out the texture of your skin. The comfortable gel formula means that this moisturiser works as a great base for make up. 

After cleansing my skin and applying moisturiser, I always reach for the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment to replenish my dehydrated eye area. This thick and rich formula enriched with avocado oil has an unique texture that doesn't migrate into the eyes, making for a much more pleasurable experience. Fast absorbing, light weight and extremely hydrating, there isn't much more I would want from an eye cream. 

Whenever my body is looking dull and lacklustre, I always opt for a pungent shower cream to lather up on my skin and leave a long lasting scent. When I found out that Lush were releasing The Comforter in shower gel form, I may have jumped up and down a bit. This lightweight shower cream made with cassis absolute and almond oil is a luxe way to uplift, revive and hydrate the skin with ease.

Last, a product that I've mentioned before is the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, a tinted lip balm that nourishes and adds a light wash of colour to the lips. With added sugar and grapeseed oil, this offering prevents future moisture loss, whilst being rich in antioxidants making for protected, supple lips for up to 6 hours. 

What products do you turn to do save your dehydrated skin?
