Hydration from the inside out
Of course, my first piece of advice is to protect your skin from the inside out, as the majority of dryness is resulting from what’s happening on the inside. Drink plenty of water and eat a diet rich in seasonal, organic, fresh foods. Check out my book Eat Beautiful for healthy, skin-friendly recipes that will have you looking and feeling your best.
What are hydrating concealers?
If you do consistently suffer with dry skin, finding makeup essentials designed with your skin in mind can help. Hydrating concealers are specially formulated to provide coverage while also delivering moisture to the skin. They often contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, which help to hydrate and plump the skin, leaving it looking smooth and radiant. These hydrating concealers are a great option for those with dry skin who want to conceal blemishes, dark circles, and other imperfections without making their skin look dry and flaky.
Here’s what to look for:
When shopping for a hydrating concealer, there are a few key things to look for:
- Moisturising ingredients: keep an eye out for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, which can help to hydrate and plump the skin.
- Creamy texture: opt for a cream colour, which are typically more hydrating than those with a matte or powdery finish.
- Medium to full coverage: sheer concealers may work for some, but those with dry skin might need more coverage to hide blemishes and dark circles without exacerbating dryness.
