3 Ways To Get The Most Hydrated Skin Ever
Posted by Jasmine Taylor-Moran in Skin Care
With the drying winter months finally over, it's time we quenched our skin's thirst, got rid of the dry skin on our face and started hydrating both inside and out. By drinking plenty of fluids and using creams and other products with moisture-locking ingredients, you'll have the most hydrated skin ever in no time.
Pointing out the obvious here - you should be drinking between 2 to 3 litres of water per day for you to maintain and retain moisture levels in your skin, this has great health benefits too, but we’re not here to talk about drinking water.
With just 3 products, you too can have radiant, glowing, moisture-filled skin, which in turn can help with skin issues such as dry skin on our face, eczema and adult acne.

Their range of HyaluComplex hydrating systems include intensely hydrating lotions, cleansers, serums and gels are what sold out most quickly due to their incredible potency and ability to deeply hydrate skin after very few uses. As an advocate for regular sheet-masking I couldn’t help but get drawn to their sheet mask but what really caught my eye was the Hydrating System Intensive Hydrating Gel With Hyaluronic Acid which promises to prevent irritation-induced pigmentation, effectively calm skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improve dull skin tone and provide a long-term moisturising effect to the face - a lot of promises for one skincare product. Featuring a cooling a refreshing gel texture, this multi-tasking moisturiser can heal any dry skin on your face as it contains 5th generation HyaluComplex which attracts, retains and creates hydration where they may be little or none on the face. After just a few uses, you will unveil a smoother, softer, more radiant complexion, even if you suffer from deeply dehydrated or sensitive skin

Injecting moisture into your skincare routine at all stages is important to achieving the most hydrated skin you can ever imagine. The Hydrating System Hydrating Gel Cleanser With Aqua-collagen does just that by gently cleansing and hydrating the skin from the moment you wake up and wash your face. The soap-free cleansing gel thoroughly cleans without causing irritation, dissolving into your face and helps bind water within your skin, reducing dry patches and promoting hydration. With additives including a sweet almond seed extract which has a similar structure to collagen, it helps to repair dry skin on your face whilst plumping skin, leaving it soft, radiant and full of moisture.
Finishing your routine as you started, a hydrating moisturiser or lotion will set you up for the rest of the day and help repair skin when used before bed. The Hydrating System Extra Hydrating Lotion With Aqua-collagen is my third must-have product from the Dr Wu range as its lightweight and refreshing formula, also blended with the same HyaluComplex and sweet almond seed extract, help to bind and lock-in moisture within the skin, relieving any irritated dry skin on your face. Loaded with squalane to reinforce the skin’s defence system against environmental toxins and infused with organic plant extracts, this moisturiser will effectively soothe skin irritation as well as visibly reducing signs of ageing, helping the skin to appear smoother, younger and more hydrated.
Using products like these in every aspect of your skincare regime and using makeup products that help your skin and pores breathe is vital to achieving the most hydrated skin ever.
