A Guide to Hydrating Your Dehydrated Skin – Product Recommendations
It’s no news that hydration is very important in a skincare routine, to keep your skin healthy, plump and resilient. My skin felt quite dehydrated over the past weeks and it was a whole mess. Like everyone else, I love a properly hydrated skin, so it’s only natural for me to want it back.
Also, the cold (harmattan/winter) seasons are upon us and that’s more reason to get products that will keep your skin hydrated. So, I put together this post as a guide on products I’m currently using, that you can also use to get a well-hydrated skin.
Why My Skin was Dehydrated
For context, I have oily, acne-prone skin and I was also experiencing some breakouts. Dehydration causes oily skin to produce more oil but at the same time, my face was feeling very dry and flaky. This might have been due to the additions I made to my skincare routine recently but I cannot say for sure as I added a couple of products to my routine. Either way, this post is only focusing on products to help your skin get better.
Hydration vs. Moisturizing
It’s also worth mentioning that hydration is different from moisturizing but they work collectively to keep your skin healthy. The products below have hydrating as well as moisturizing properties and they’ve really helped my skin get back to its healthy state.

1. PURITO Oat-In Calming Gel Cream
I know it seems like I’m promoting this cream a lil too much😅 but I quite like it and it’s new, so it needs the attention. You can read my first impressions on it as well as the full review I published recently. I like how it feels upon application and it’s lightweight enough to layer up with other creams.

2. VT Cosmetics CICA Care Cream
This has been my go-to cream whenever I experience irritation (even on other parts of the body) and I have a review up for it. It’s also a gel cream but it’s heavier, so you only need a tiny amount. However, during the cold seasons, using more quantity would be appropriate.
Even though the culprit that caused my dehydration could have been its cleanser counterpart, that doesn’t ruin the nice experience I’ve had with this essence! It is literally holy grail and I’m quite surprised I haven’t shared a full blog review yet🤦🏾♀️ (you can check out my Instagram post on it though).
