Dehydrated skin is one of the most common skin conditions during the warmer months. Sun exposure, heat and chlorine can dry out your skin as you spend more time outdoors.
Using formulations containing powerful super foods and potent natural and organic Australian ingredients – such as aloe vera juice, avocado oil, and rosehip oil – will help keep your skin nourished, hydrated and protected.
By using products featuring the four following highly and nourishing ingredients and adding these into your skincare routine, you can help prevent dehydrated skin. Of course, use these ingredients in addition to a protective sunscreen.
Aloe Vera Juice
Used for its skin healing and soothing capabilities, aloe vera juice can be applied on all skin types to help reduce inflammation and redness, rehydrate the complexion, and help heal broken skin.
This is because aloe vera juice is abundant in Vitamin B, folic acid, and Vitamin C.
If you find that your skin is quite dry or sensitive in summer, this may be the perfect ingredient for you.
Another natural moisturiser and anti-inflammatory is avocado oil. It helps to shield the skin from ultraviolet radiation, protect against skin damage, and help to soothe chapped and dry skin.
Try adding a few drops to your liquid foundation in the morning when applying your makeup if you find that your skin can tend to dry out throughout the day.
Similarly, if you find facial oils too heavy to use in the daytime, try mixing in a few drops with your favourite moisturiser for an extra hydration boost in the evening.
Well known to be incredibly beneficial for the skin, rosehip oil is abundant in naturally occurring Vitamins A, C, and E, also essential fatty acids Omega 3, 6 and 9.
This wonderful combination of vitamins and antioxidants not only helps to repair and regenerate damaged and dehydrated skin, but also helps to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and minimise the appearance of scarring and pigmentation.
When used in combination with other potent active ingredients such as jojoba oil and kakadu plum, you will be left with a supple and radiant complexion.
Found naturally in our skin’s structure, hyaluronic acid is infamous for its ability to keep the skin moisturised and protected, boost collagen production, soften the skin, and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to hold 1,000 times its own weight in water, which means it helps the skin to retain hydration and works to keep your complexion looking plump and soft.
Hyaluronic acid is a hero ingredient that provides long-lasting and all-day hydration by working to restore the skin’s moisture levels.
