If you suffer from dried-out skin, you can pair up your regular moisturizer with a serum for an added moisture shot. You should also opt for a moisturizing cleanser and steer clear of drying alcohols and foaming agents that can cause further dryness.
Skincare experts agree that one of the best ways to combat dehydrated skin is through the use of serums containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that has the capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture and works to replenish skin.
It’s important to note that when you choose skin care products, you shouldn’t just focus on repairing dry skin damage. You should also aim to prevent dryness in the first place through a consistently moisturizing routine. If your skin is particularly dry you can layer a moisturizing cream over a serum.

When you do choose skincare, it’s important to choose products that are gentle on the skin. We recommend opting for natural moisturizers, exfoliants, and cleansing agents.
