The weather has been pretty confusing lately. Some days we wake up to frigid temperatures and piles of snow, the next to sunny days in the positives that make spring feel like its arrived. With all the ups and downs, or with age, dehydrated skin can be a relentless foe. It not only feels uncomfortable but can also present as lackluster skin, irritation or flaky patches.

Thankfully, there are secrets to combat this issue and restore your skin's natural radiance. From nourishing moisturizers to herbal teas, here are five tips to help you achieve supple, hydrated skin, featuring products from Truth Beauty.


1. Practice Gentle Cleansing Techniques 

Harsh cleansing can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it feeling tight and dry. Instead, opt for gentle cleansing techniques that effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup without compromising your skin's moisture barrier. Use lukewarm water and a mild, non-foaming cleanser to cleanse your skin morning and night, and pat your skin dry with a soft towel afterward.

We love oil cleansers since they effectively cleanse the skin without stripping, while also adding moisture into the skin. 

Our favourite oil cleansers: 

The Cure Skincare's Oil Cleanser - Not your standard oil cleanser, it is activated by water to become a milky consistency. Plus it boasts ingredients that support various skin types: MCT for its anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties, prefect for acne prone skin, plus red raspberry seed oil and black goji fruit extract which strengthen the skin barrier, and reduce irritation and redness. It’s great for all skin types.

Corpa Flora's Beauté Divine Facial Cleanser - This formula cleanses without irritation, or residue, no double cleansing required. Plus it is enriched with sweet almond and hemp seed oils containing essential fatty acids that protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier. This is a great formula for dry, mature and redness-prone skin conditions, try this lighter formula for normal to oily skin types.

2. Incorporate Hyaluronic Acid for Plump, Hydrated Skin 

Hyaluronic acid is a powerhouse ingredient known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a must-have for dry skin. Incorporate serums or moisturizers containing hyaluronic acid into your skincare routine to plump and hydrate your skin from within.

4. Invest in a Humidifier for Added Moisture

Dry indoor air can exacerbate skin dryness, especially during the winter months. Investing in a humidifier can help add moisture to the air, preventing your skin from becoming parched. Place a humidifier in your bedroom or other frequently used areas to create a more comfortable environment for your skin.

5. Hydrate from the Inside Out with Herbal Teas

While staying hydrated by drinking water is essential for overall health, certain herbal teas can provide additional benefits for dry skin. Opt for hydrating herbal teas like chamomile, green tea, or rooibos, which contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and hydrate your skin from within. Enjoy a cup of herbal tea daily as part of your skincare ritual to promote hydration and overall wellness.
