Best products for dehydrated skin
We all know how important it is to drink 5 to 8 glasses of water a day, but are we doing it? Dehydration can cause weight gain, loss of energy and can even cause fine lines around the inner corners of your eyes. Over the course of the day, your hydration levels change in your face, leaving you with less elasticity and giving a slight dullness to the skin. The skin in your face is made up of 70% water which is why water plays an essential role in preserving elasticity and suppleness to the skin. Vichy’s thermal spa water is much more than just water, it’s 100% pure and naturally enriched with 15 rare minerals that’s clinically proven to regenerate, soothe and protect the skin. The new Vichy Aqualia Thermal line contains a unique blend of 3 stimulating sugars to energize fluids. Hyaluronic Acid that re-plumps the skin’s surface, by enhancing its capacity to retain water by 1000 times, Aquabiory that helps to reinforce the protection of the cutaneous barrier to fight against dehydration and Carrageenans that helps to repair the skin’s barrier function, smoothens and softens the skin.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum comes in a sleek, blue glass bottle with pump style lid. It has a lightweight, silky, almost watery consistency that applies beautifully into the skin. 1 to 2 pumps of the serum is enough to cover both the face and neck. Upon application is almost turns into a water-based texture that absorbs into the skin within seconds. It doesn’t feel oily, greasy or tight and you can apply your daily moisturizer immediately after. Skin is left feeling firmer, softer and more hydrated. It retails for $42 for 30ml.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum is so light and airy that it is perfect for the summer and suitable for the humid weather we have here in Canada. It does an excellent job at evening out the water levels throughout the different parts of my face. Around the nose and on my chin is normally where I suffer from dry patches and with this serum it’s like it’s able to detect my dry areas and give it the extra moisture it so desperately needs. Within a few short weeks, those parts of my skin that were normally dry, are feeling more refreshed, hydrated and highly moisturized.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream complements the serum perfectly. It comes in a round, blue glass bottle with mirrored lid. It has a lightweight, semi translucent white gel like texture that’s extremely creamy, yet easily absorbed just like the serum. It helps cool any skin irritation or tightness and doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy residue. It does an excellent job at moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated throughout the day and into the night. It retails for $38.50 for 50ml.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream is the perfect layering moisturizer over the power serum. The serum is light enough that I can apply this moisturizer right away without it feeling too wet or taking forever to absorb into the skin. I thought I found my holy grail in the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa, as I’ve repurchased it several times now, but I have to say, this Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream might be a new favourite. I actually find my makeup applies easier and smoother when I use it in the morning and thanks to its lightweight formula, skin is easily breathable and doesn’t cause breakouts. After only a few short weeks, my skin is feeling smoother, plumper and less dry with less flaky patches. With all the water I’ve been drinking lately, thanks to the Blossom Lounge 30 day water challenge, this has done an excellent job at reinforcing my skin’s natural moisture barrier. For dry, dehydrated skin, you need to check these two products out.
