Dry, flaky skin and a feeling of tight discomfort are all skin complaints that we hear time and time again. A lot of people find that particularly in Winter time, their skin needs something extra to look supple and feel soft. Cold weather, lack of sunshine, indoor air conditioning and excess partying (!) can be harsh and drying for skin and Winter is dreary enough without the added insult of your skin flaking off and feeling dry and dull. The good news for dry skin is that you can pretty much kiss it goodbye by incorporating the following four skincare products into your routine. A note of advice: It’s best to use all of them together in your routine as a hydrating system. And please be consistent. Consistency will produce the best results!
1. Pure Hyaluronic Serum
With the ability to hold 1000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid is an essential skin hydrating tool. This serum provides an instant skin-plumping effect and leaves skin feeling supple and looking dewy.
2. Recover Eye Cream
The skin around the eyes needs extra special attention as it’s much thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. Every line and wrinkle will show if you have dry skin around the eye area. Recover is a soft and lightweight eye cream formulated with the active ingredient palmitoyl tripeptide-5 which serves to diminish fine lines, improve skin texture, reduce puffiness and reduce dark circles around the eye area.
3. Balance Facial Spritz
Aaaah. A spritz. Do not underestimate the power and convenience of a good facial spritz. Spritz all day if you need to. Balance facial spritz is a fine-misting magnesium spritz that provides protection to the skin barrier, calms the skin and clarifies the skin. It feels great and it’s a 24-hour skin saviour.
4. Hydrate Moisturiser
Your choice of daily moisturiser is crucial. Choose one that is absorbent and that contains essential skin hydrating and skin softening ingredients. Hydrate is an ultra-lightweight skin moisturiser formulated with peptides and squalane which soothes and softens skin. It’s perfect for daily use and suitable for everyone.
And the best news is….
the Pestle & Mortar All I Want for Christmas set contains all of the above four hydrating heroes beautifully packaged and presented. In the unlikely event that you don’t know anyone with dry skin, get it for yourself!
