For some of us, dry skin is an everyday occurrence, whereas for others it’s only in the colder months that dehydrated, flaky skin becomes a problem. Applying a day cream and night cream as part of your daily skincare routine is a no-brainer but to really banish the dullness and nourish skin, a hydrating serum for dry skin is essential. Massage in a few drops after cleansing and toning, before applying your moisturiser to supercharge your routine.
What ingredients should I look for?
The key ingredient to look out for when looking for serums for dry skin is Hyaluronic acid (HA) also known as Hyaluronan. Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar that retains water, which is naturally produced by our bodies and found in connective tissues and the eyes. When reproduced for use in skincare, HA is a star ingredient for hydrating the skin. It’s amazing as a topical skincare ingredient because it can have an immediately noticeable effect, visibly plumping skin for a healthier-looking complexion.
