Pampering treatments to soothe dry and dehydrated skin
Oil is the texture that best penetrates the epidermis whilst leaving a protective film on our skin. Start by washing with a shower oil to instantly soften your skin.
Remember not to rub your skin dry as you need to keep the oil's protective barrier intact!
Follow by massaging in a dry oil to help the dehydrated skin feel supple and comfortable. No kidding, there are whipped cream products for our skin! They're basically a creamy base pumped full of air to create a feather-light texture packed with moisturising ingredients. They fluff up when you scoop a dollop out of the pot, are easy to smooth across your face, and, most of all, are nourishing and moisturising.
Worshipping whipped cream is one thing. Applying a hydrating face mask takes things to another level. Unlike purifying face masks that need to be removed, a nighttime mask can be, as the word suggests, left on whilst you sleep. You'll wake up to plump skin and a glowing complexion without a dry flake in sight. Baby soft, peachy skin guaranteed!
Balms are thicker than moisturising lotions and richer than creams. They melt on your fingertips and are wonderful to massage all over your body. Often made with organic or natural ingredients, balms are packed with vegetable oils and butters that effectively protect and repair skin.
Butters are the Holy Grail when it comes to really dry skin. Derived from fruits or trees (cocoa, shea) and blended with cosmetic ingredients, butters are nourishing superheroes. Comprising 53% fat, they're nourishing, healing, and hydrating. They're very dense, so need to be warmed up in your hands to make it easy to smooth across your skin.
So there you have it, a selection of treatments and textures to keep your skin moisturised, nourished, and protected from winter's icy grip! We want them all... oh, where to begin?
The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Essence Face Sheet Mask is a plumping and hydrating mask. It’s a new generation of advanced cellulose tissue mask designed to retain 10x* more essence to intensely penetrate skin layers. With only 0.3mm thickness, it fits perfectly to the contours of the Asian face like a second skin to deliver skin actives.
In 15 minutes, the skin feels more plumpy and smooth with a healthy radiance. After 4 weeks, it feels firmer with lines and wrinkles visibly reduced.
