The best way to treat dehydrated skin is by using products containing the right ingredients to replenish the skin’s lost moisture. Some of our favourite Korean beauty ingredients for dehydrated skin include:
Snail mucin: In addition to providing hydration, snail mucin also encourages cell turnover and stimulates collagen synthesis, to strengthen, tighten and enhance skin’s resilience.
Hyaluronic acid – able to hold up 1,000 times its weight in water, this powerful humectant attracts and maintains water in the skin. It also promotes blood circulation and nutrient absorption.
Ceramides – replenish the natural lipids that are lost due to exposure to harsh environmental factors, the use of drying products, and during the aging process. They restore moisture, fortify the skin’s natural barrier and help protect it against harm from foreign elements.
Orchid Extract – act as an anti-oxidant and moisturises, soothes and conditions skin.
Honey – a natural moisturiser it is also naturally antibacterial, and contains amino acids and vitamins that are perfect for coaxing dehydrated skin back to normal.
