Hydrate your face using a lightweight moisturiser. Do not skip this step even if you have got oily skin: doing so will make your skin produce even more sebum to compensate for the lack of hydration. Opt for creams that are non-comedogenic (pore-clogging) and which contain sebum-regulating agents such as glycolic acid. A key ingredient to look out for is vitamin C; as well as being brilliant at preventing colds, when applied topically, it can really help to even out skin tone by fading any dark patches. Using salicylic acid for skin concerns like dry and dull skin is also a good way to moisturize as well as mildly exfoliate your skin, both at the same time.
If you want to get rid of dull skin, try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence
. The brightening salicylic acid in the essence refines pores and skin texture and penetrates up to 10 skin layers deep* to reveal bright, clear, and youthful skin. Using salicylic acid for dry skin is a great way to improve the skin’s moisture retention and smoothen the skin’s texture.
Another way to instantly and intensely hydrate your skin is to use a hydrating sheet mask. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro Essence Sheet Mask
is infused with one bottle of essence and delivers more essence to your skin, leaving you with a skin tone that is bright and crystal clear. Use this sheet mask thrice a week to keep your skin hydrated and glowing.
Another active ingredient that would really help locking in the hydration is Hyaluronic Acid! Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant and we can’t stress enough about the wonders it does for all skin types! Completely safe to use for any skin type, it holds upto 1,000 times it’s weight in water! Try the L’Oréal Paris Plumping Hyaluronic Acid Day Cream
, which would really help in achieving not only hydrated, but also radiant skin!
And remember to always apply an SPF, whatever the weather. If your moisturiser does not have one already built into it, be sure to seek out a separate product. Preventing any further sun damage will help you to avoid the pigmentation marks that lead to an uneven tone in the first place.
