What Have Saved My Dry Flaky Skin!

One week ago my face became very dry and flaky after exposing myself too much under the sunfacebook chat emoticon cry. I did not apply any sunblock (I do not have the habit), so I think that has caused my skin to be in a bad condition too.facebook chat emoticon frown

You know, when the skin is too dry, it will become very flaky and rough. It is painful too especially when I try to apply moisturizer. Learnt that sufficient hydration would heal the skin, I added some hydrating steps into my skin care routinefacebook chat emoticon angel. And of course, I consumed more water than normal, hoping that it will hydrate 'me' from inside out.

Hydrating Mask

Normally, we are advised to apply hydrating mask once a week. However, I apply it on my face EVERYDAY when my face is dry and flaky. It really helpsfacebook chat emoticon grin! I used My Beauty Diaries sheet mask as my Cellnique Soothing and Hydrating Masque has ran out. Before using the sheet mask, I put it into refrigerator until the sheet mask is cold. You could imagine how comfortable it is to have a cold sheet mask on your face. facebook chat emoticon kiki

Hydrating Serum

I used Clinelle hydrating serum - Moisture Booster to boost my skin moisture level. It really helps to hydrate my skin. My skin gets better each day after using this serum! facebook chat emoticon smile However, my skin gets sensitive when I apply this serum directly onto my skin. My cheeks got red in colour and there were red bumps on them. So, I pumped the serum on my fingers and rubbed before patting them onto my face. With this method, my cheek does not develop any sensitive spots and I am happy with it.facebook chat emoticon wink

Hydrating Moisturizer

My Kiehl's moisturizer was not sufficient enough to hydrate my dry skin. It is a nice  moisturizer when your skin is normal but not when your skin is dry. So I switched back to my Cellnique Moisturizer - Intensive Hydrating Oasis Gel. I apply a thick layer on my face in the morning and evening. It got slightly sticky ( due to the thick layer facebook chat emoticon tongue ) but it was not oily at all!

The Result

Believe it or not, my face is back to normal - no more dry flaky skin, after just 4 days! I was so happy and now here you are, the products that have saved my skin! Buh-bye to DRY skin!facebook chat emoticon kiki

Extra Tips

When you are experiencing dry skin, try to avoid outdoor activities - especially if you are staying in a hot country like me. facebook chat emoticon grin And always remember to apply sunblock! With this lesson, I always remind myself to apply sunblock before going out. Well, also remember to drink more plain water!
