Hydrated skin looks plumper and radiant as well as feeling softer. Any skin type can become dehydrated. Dry skin lacks oil. When the top layer of the skin is lacking in water it is defined as dehydrated.
Rough and flaky skin is an indication that it is dry. If it looks dull, feels tight and is rough to the touch, it is crying out for a drink. If you have wrinkles before your time, it could mean that your skin is dehydrated. As you get older it becomes harder to maintain high moisture levels.
Clinique’s new Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-replenishing Hydrator (£36) is a great aid to keeping your skin hydrated. According to the company: “Auto-Replenishing Technology uses caffeine to kick-start skin’s own water ‘pump.”
It is no good hydrating the skin if you do not attract moisture and prevent it escaping. So you will also find it loaded with aloe water, humectants and hyaluronic acid to ensure the job is done as well as possible.
This gel-cream has a cooling effect and feels great on. Your complexion feels and looks radiant even after washing your face. It is wonderful for flying and holidays. I used plenty of this on a recent trip. I was really pleased with the results.
