The Latest Skin Hydrating Trends

The skincare and beauty industry is constantly evolving. New products and trends are introduced in the market every other day. With the abundance of information out there, it is normal to get confused about what your skin actually needs. Here is a quick guide for you to learn more about one trend, or skincare must-have, that has been around for a long time – hydration.

Coconut Water

The latest buzz when it comes to drinks? Coconut water! This is a completely natural drink extracted from unripe, green coconuts. Coconut water is great for hydrating your body, especially after an intense workout. Coconut water contains five electrolytes that help you to regulate your body temperature. Plus it's tastier than water.


Hydrating Face Mask

Does your face itch, feel stretched or have a tendency to redden? If so, your skin is parched. Faced with dry winds or temperature fluctuations between the cold outdoors and centrally heated offices, your skin can get dehydrated. When your skin dries out, you need to treat it to some intense hydration. The latest hydrating trend? A face mask! Nourishing and moisturising, masks help your skin's protective barrier to regenerate.

You can choose to apply a hydrating face mask to your whole face or pick one that targets specific areas of your face that need some extra TLC. For example, the L'Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh Anti-Ox Grape Seed Hydrating Mask-In Eye Gel works on the sensitive under eye area and keeps it hydrated. The light gel texture of the Hydra Fresh Anti-Ox cream fortifies the skin under your eyes and delays the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, without feeling heavy or greasy on your skin.


Cosmetic Water

‘Liquid care' or cosmetic water has been one of the newer products in the hydrating skincare products’ range. This new generation of treatments come in the form of mists, gels, and creams. Their textures are creamy, light, and are designed to transform into water. For example, the gels that turn into water on contact with skin. This means your skin can fully benefit from both the water content and the powerful, moisturising active ingredients that the product contains. These ultra-light, fondant treatments are taking beauty routines by storm!


Dry Oil

If you want to nourish and moisturise your skin in one clean sweep, then it is time to invest in a dry oil. Traditionally used for massages, dry oils have now become a beauty essential. Why? Because their non-greasy texture immediately penetrates and nourishes skin, whilst leaving a lovely, lingering fragrance. Suited to all skin types, dry oils are particularly good for parched and dry skin. They leave skin feeling supple, soft, and velvety to the touch. And if you want to further boost your healthy glow, you can always opt for a satin body oil.
