Summer Skincare Routine for Dehydrated Skin

Summer often brings a vast improvement to my mature, sensitive, dehydrated skin, but it still needs a lot of hydration this time of year.  I’ve developed a foolproof routine that adds moisture without feeling heavy or greasy.  And it’s just four steps.


After cleansing, I apply Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Facial Serum.  While I wouldn’t classify it as a typical serum, it is one of the best I’ve found for quick hydration.  What it doesn’t contain is any oil or silicone (or fragrance – hurrah!), so I do find I need a separate serum over the top of it.


For this, I use Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum.  It glides over skin, leaving it hydrated, soft, and balanced.  I find it also seals in the moisture benefits of the Hydraluron and preps the skin for the next stage.


Even in summer, I find it beneficial to use a facial oil every day, but it does need to be a light one.  At the moment, I’m trialling my own blend, but I can recommend Nude Progenies Omega Treatment Oil.  It sinks in quickly and leaves skin feeling plumped and soothed without any greasy residue.


Lastly, I use Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate which not only moisturises beautifully, it also works as a fantastic primer negating the need for yet another layer of skincare.

When layering skincare, remember to wait a minute or two between applying each product to allow the products to penetrate the skin.  This will keep your skin feeling hydrated and comfortable from morning until night.
