The dry air teind to dry out our skin during the fall/winter seasons. This is particularly worse for people with the dry skin type , which may cause their skin to flake or even break out.

Before we get started, make sure you read THE 10 SKINCARE COMMANDMENTS EVERY SKINCARE PRO FOLLOWS, as it will give you the proper guidance you need.
THE BEST HYDRATING SKINCARE PRODUCTS/INGREDIENTS
1. Aloe vera
This Plant is tested and trusted in the Skincare industry. It has this instant soothing effect and will help your skin retain moisture. Its moisturising and hydrating effects can be noticed immediately when applied to the skin. The only downside is that the gooey juice might be sticky on your skin. A better alternative will be the 100% aloe vera juice, which can be used as a toner or a face mist.
2. Rose water
It helps to keep your skin hydrated for hours, when applied on a clean skin. Also, it helps to improve the texture of the skin. The good thing about rose water, is that it helps shrink your pores and doesn’t dry out your skin. Saturate a cotton pad with your rose water and dab it onto your skin and neck. Once your face is semi-dry, apply your favourite moisturiser.
3. Hyaluronic Acid
This is an all time favourite of mine. It is a powerful skin hydrator and can be used by all skin types. I wrote extensively about hyaluronic acid here.
Which ever product you choose, make sure to apply a moisturiser afterwards.
Now let’s hear from you. Which is your favourite skincare hydrator in fall/winter?
