#4 Hydration is key
Dehydration skin is what leads to dry, uneven and uncomfortable skin. Combat hydration with a trusty moisturiser that will rejuvenate and lock in moisture. The recommended Scientia Ceramide Skin Rescue Moisture Barrier Balm is a complex 5-barrier-boosting combination with a dewy complexion. With Ceramides Hyaluronic Acid, fatty acids and lipids mimic it will help restore and rebuild the skin barrier function whilst retaining moisture.
You can also combat dryness with face mist that can be used throughout the day – keep a bottle in the fridge for extra coolness. Try the Chantecaille facial mists for a product that will detoxify and hydrate skin. Also, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. It is a huge factor in the health of your skin, especially if you’re enjoying a wine or two over the weekend.
#5 Home hacks
Give yourself a professional icy facial by keeping any face devices or masks in the fridge. The cold temperature will cool and soothe when applied to your face, helping any irritation or puffiness caused by the heat.
There is so much guidance around skincare it sometimes feels a little daunting and we’re sure your skin feels the same. So, once or twice a month after cleansing go to sleep with no product, to let your skin breathe and you will see the benefits it has to your skin’s balance.
Why not try a homemade mask? This homemade face mask combats dry skin without having to turn into a super oily substance, perfect for the summer. From expert skincare vlogger Iamvenessae this is the Honey & Avacado Mask. Made from half a mashed avocado, and 1 tablespoon of honey, the avocado’s fatty acids help soothe and moisturize your dry skin barrier, while honey is a natural hydrator used to treat acne and inflammatory skin conditions. Wear for 10 minutes before applying your skincare products.
