Beauty trends have always made waves on social media platforms like Tiktok, Instagram etc, which have been the major source of trending and viral beauty hacks and techniques. One such technique that we have very recently come across happens to be an upgrade to a regular skincare routine. Enter "skin flooding", the ultimate way of revitalising dry skin with hydrating products. Very similar to the art of layering, this trend tends to be effective for dry skin. You need to apply the products to damp skin so that the actives work efficiently and get absorbed. While this trend sounds interesting, we have got you covered with all the details. Read on to know more.
What Is Skin Flooding?
The feeling of itchy, tight and dry skin is the very worst thing but unfortunately during winter, we face these skin concerns. Our skincare game needs to be even stronger to keep our skin in check. There is a thin line between nourished and overly moisturised and that is exactly what skin flooding is all about. Ever heard about K-Beauty skincare? Very similar to the art of layering, the technique of "skin flooding" revitalises your skin and helps in dealing with dry and patchy skin. Whether you are working or sleeping, your skin tends to lose moisture and we always need an extra layer to maintain a healthy skin balance.
How Does One Do Skin Flooding?
Dehydrated skin is the last thing that we wish to face, and this trend is a good fit for almost all your dry skin worries. A cleansed face is a must, to begin with. The trend is all about nourishing your skin with lightweight moisturising essentials. Once you are done cleansing your face, go for a moisturising toner to set the base, followed by a lightweight serum that tends to suit your skin. Serums that have lightweight, hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid are perfect to draw moisture to your skin. When layering ingredients or actives, be very cautious of the ingredients you opt for. Finish off with a moisturiser that has a comparatively thicker consistency so it can lock in hydration and nourishment.
