Fresh skincare to treat dry skin

Over time, fine lines and wrinkles may develop on your face for various reasons. If you’ve noticed extra sensitivity or irritation, then you may be suffering from dehydrated skin. The good news is that it’s possible to replenish your skin’s barrier once you notice the first signs of dehydrated skin. With the right scientifically proven products from fresh, you can achieve the hydration you desire.

Understanding dehydrated skin

Although sometimes used interchangeably, dehydrated skin is not the same as dry skin. Any skin type can be dehydrated, even oily skin. Dehydrated skin is typically characterised by roughness, itchiness, or flakiness, with visible fine and dry lines. It’s also possible to experience oily and inflamed skin that lacks water. This can result in a buildup of dead skin cells, leading to clogged pores.

There are various things that may cause this, but lifestyle influences are what most commonly have an impact on hydration. For example, excessive exposure to the sun, a stressful life or busy schedule, and not getting enough sleep can all be the culprits. These ultimately weaken your skin’s natural resilience, making it more vulnerable and reactive to skin aggressors.

Restoring Your Skin’s Balance

A compromised skin barrier can be identified through unbalanced skin and dehydration. The remedy to this is by balancing the skin’s hydration. Balanced skin is visibly stronger and healthier, and the oil-water ratio is as it should be. When skin is balanced, it becomes softer, smoother, and plumper.

Treating your skin to fight dehydration

Regardless of what your skin type is or what your skin concerns are, your skincare routine should include products that will strengthen and restore your skin’s moisture barrier. It’s recommended to gradually introduce new products to your routine to see how your skin reacts to them, so you can avoid them if there are signs of irritation.

Cleansing and preparing your skin

Every skincare routine should include a cleanser as the starting point. Cleansing in the mornings and evenings is essential to effectively remove makeup, dirt, oil, and impurities to avoid buildup, irritation, and ultimately dehydration. Highly recommended is our Soy pH Balanced Face Wash which gently washes away impurities, leaving you with skin that’s both clean and smooth. This soy-enriched formula goes the extra mile and softens your skin’s texture while increasing hydration, even after you rinse your face. It’s ideal for maintaining the skin’s pH balance before you proceed with the other products in your routine.

Thereafter, a toner is advised for a targeted approach to your skin concerns. Our Rose Deep Hydration Toner gently refines pores and removes excess dirt and impurities on your face. Made with rose fruit extract and hyaluronic acid, it helps attract water molecules to help strengthen your skin’s barrier and lock in moisture.

Include targeted serums

Another essential in your skincare routine should be a serum, which works to fight the impact of external aggressors for improved hydration. Our Tea Elixir Skin Resilience Activating Serum is a great pick! Tea Elixir boosts skin’s resilience to everyday aggressors, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin and a visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines. Powered by fresh's proprietary APT Technology – extracted from a tea plant that has survived in harsh conditions against all odds – Tea Elixir works to overcome any current dehydration and protect against future skin imbalances.

Use emulsions and moisturisers to retain hydration

With all the above-mentioned products working to give your skin the hydration it needs, the final steps entail helping it retain that moisture. That’s where emulsions and moisturisers come in – forming the final stage in your barrier-strengthening routine. We recommend our new Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Emulsion with a fast-absorbing, milky formula that works to balance the oil-water ratio for improved hydration. This emulsion is the secret to hydrated skin without the heavy feeling that other products might leave.

Those with extremely dry or dehydrated skin may want to add a moisturiser on top of the emulsion. Our Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream offers your skin 72-hour deep hydration with its combination of high and low hyaluronic acid molecules. The damask rose extract works to strengthen the skin’s barrier and retain moisture for hydrated and softer skin.

Treat yourself to hydrated, petal-soft skin
