Is your skin feeling dull and lacklustre? I know mine does when I travel, am stressed out or my diet isn’t as clean as it could be. I’m all about natural skincare and this guide is such a good way to ensure glowing, natural, fresh, dewy skin.
Chances are it’s dehydrated, lacking the moisture it needs to achieve that healthy, natural glow.
And with summer just around the corner, there’s nothing better than naturally glowing skin for that no-makeup makeup look. With a little help from our friends at natural skin care brand Jurlique, we give you the ultimate guide to keeping your skin hydrated all day long.
Hydrating skin care routine
The first step to achieving hydrated skin is a good skin care routine featuring natural products that will nourish the skin.
Cleansing removes dirt, debris, and makeup and unclogs pores. A wipe won’t be enough for this step – instead, look for a cleanser that will give an effective yet gentle clean. The Jurlique Replenishing Cleansing Lotion is great for dry skin, while Nourishing Cleansing Oil is perfect for all skin types and helps with hydration. We also recommend exfoliating once or twice a week to remove any dead skin cells.
A face mist is a super refreshing addition to your skin care routine that instantly restores your skin’s hydration after cleansing. It’s also a great product to have in your handbag to spritz throughout the day, particularly in summer. We love Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist for all skin types, or Herbal Recovery Signature Mist if you’re starting to experience the first signs of ageing.
- Face Essence
Not just a K-Beauty trend, face essences hydrate and prep the skin to help you absorb the rest of your skin care products. Jurlique Activating Water Essence contains high-performing botanical extracts to attract and hold water for a smoother, softer, and healthier-looking complexion and is suitable for all skin types.
Face serums are the ultimate power product – 1-2 pumps are all you need to reap the benefits of the potent, high-performing formulas. They target specific skin care concerns too, whether you’re looking for long lasting hydration or a product to soothe sensitive skin.
The Jurlique Moisture Plus Rare Rose Serum is proven to deliver 24-hour hydration, leaving your skin with that all-day glow (plus, it’s made using an extract from the exclusively grown Jurlique Rose, making it extra special).
If your skin is sensitive, try a gentle, specially formulated product such as the Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Restorative Treatment Serum.
Moisturisers enhance and lock in the hydrating benefits of all your other skin care products, plus they protect the skin from environmental aggressors. The Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream provides lasting, all-day hydration and is suitable for all skin types, while the lightweight and hydrating Moisture Plus Rare Rose Lotion is one of the best moisturisers for dry skin.
Top Tip: For an extra hydration boost, add a drop of face oil to your moisturiser before applying.
- Eye Care
The skin around your eyes is thin and delicate, so needs special care, too. If you’re noticing signs of fatigue and ageing, we love the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Eye Gel to hydrate, brighten and firm.
Increase your water intake
The next step to achieving the hydrated skin of your dreams doesn’t come from a product so much as what you put into your body. To keep your skin hydrated, drink plenty of water (experts recommend 2L a day) and eat water-rich foods such as watermelon, berries, cucumbers and lettuce.
