dry skin? look no further for tips on hydration
Okay lets get down to it and talk about some of my favourite products to combat dry skin (sorry to my oily skin girls but these tips are not for you)
Throughout my life, I have battled dry skin and eczema which is a side effect of the countless food allergies I have. Considering I used to have raw skin that was constantly cracked and just looked disgusting, my skin has come a long way and it naturally cleared up on its own with the help of some extra water consumption. Although after this last year with a change in medications, my severely dry and flaky skin has returned. I thought it had only returned for the winter; however, after some research and realizing the winter is over, I come to the conclusion that I had to make some serious changes to my skin care routine.
After making the serious changes, my skin is back to normal and looking a lot better. Below is an unedited pic of how my face is currently doing. So if you have dry skin and need some major help, continue reading for my tips!
So here are my top 4 products that have changed my skins life:
- Pixi Beauty’s Hydrating Milky Mist – the hyaluronic acid is in the mist is a life safer since it is a natural product produced by the body (but obviously dry skin girls lack it) so its great at hydrating and won’t irritate sensitive skin
- DIY Witch Hazel Toner (I got my inspo from this blog) – I use a combination of 80% witch hazel and 20% water for hydration with about 10 drops of tea tree oil to prevent acne spots and 8 drops of lavender for added skin benefits while giving the toner a relaxing scent
- Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream – this is the only hydrating eye cream that does not have any strong perfumes which usually irritate my eyes and also includes hyaluronic acid to give my dry eye lids an extra boost of hydration
- Omega 3 supplements – consuming about 3 capsules a day serious changed the game for me as the fish oils help deliver hydration from within since you can only do so much with moisturizers
ps. these are the things that worked for me and I suggest you give em a try but everyones skin is so unique that sometimes you just need to try your own mix of things to find the perfect concoction for your skin
