Great ways to keep your skin hydrated

by Ljubenka

Our skin is constantly changing and one thing that we all do too often is strip it from essential oils and nutrients that keep our skin soft, subtle and hydrated.

Since giving birth to my two children, my skin has changed. It has become more sensitive and where I used to have combination skin, now it is normal to dry in the colder months.

These days, I tend to moisturise my skin with gentle, natural products that are rich oils, creams and lotions without the toxic chemicals that harm and build up over time.

My cleanser of choice is an oil. I wear a lot of make-up for my work so taking those products off my face gently and effectively is most important. I love Shu Uemura’s Skin Purifier cleansing beauty oil.

I cleanse once a day only and apply moisturiser twice a day for maximum hydration. As mentioned previously in another post of mine, I am hooked on Weleda’s Skin Food. I use it morning and night to feed the skin on my face what it needs and deserves.

When the weather is warmer, I love to use Weleda Baby Face Cream. It’s a lightweight and soothing moisturiser that still hydrates my skin without feeling too heavy or looking too shiny.

For my body, I have been using Alba Botanica Maximum Body Moisturiser for many years. I love the way it feels and smells and I apply it to my body after I shower.
