New skincare trends are always popping up and promising to unlock the secret to healthy, glowing skin. A technique that has recently gone viral is one called "skin flooding." In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of skin flooding and provide a step-by-step guide on how you can achieve dewy, bouncy skin.
What is Skin Flooding?
Skin flooding is a skincare method that focuses on deeply hydrating the skin to restore moisture balance and promote a radiant complexion. By using specific products and methods, skin flooding aims to attract and retain moisture, resulting in plump, youthful, and healthy-looking skin!
The Benefits of Skin Flooding:
There are so many amazing benefits to skin flooding. Here are some advantages you can expect by incorporating this technique into your skincare routine:
Dewy Skin: Skin flooding helps to achieve that coveted dewy, luminous complexion by infusing the skin with ample hydration.
Enhanced Texture: By improving the skin's moisture balance, skin flooding can restore a firm, bouncy texture, giving your skin a smoother and more supple appearance.
Strong Moisture Barrier: Skin flooding aids in strengthening the skin's natural moisture barrier, reducing transepidermal water loss and protecting against external aggressors.
Minimises Pores: Properly hydrated skin tends to have more refined pores, as hydrated skin plumps up, making pores appear less prominent.
Improved Skin Clarity: Skin flooding can contribute to a clearer complexion by providing the necessary moisture for a healthy skin barrier function.
Step-by-Step Guide to Skin Flooding:
Step 1: Cleanse
Start by cleansing your skin to remove any impurities and create a clean canvas for the rest of your skincare routine. You can use a gentle, hydrating cleanser like the Truly Cleansing Facial Cleanser to aid in moisturizing the skin.
Step 2: Toner
After cleansing, we recommend leaving your skin slightly moist. This can be achieved by not completely drying your skin or by using a hydrating toner like the Truly Youthful Rose Toner. The purpose of this step is to add extra hydration and prepare your skin for the next steps.
Step 3: Hydrating Serum
Once your skin is slightly damp, apply a water-based serum like the Truly Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This is the most important step! Hyaluronic acid is known for promoting hydration due to its ability to attract and retain moisture in the skin.
Step 4: Moisturize
After applying the serum, seal in all that hydration with a moisturizer. The Truly Moisturizing Face Cream is recommended for this step. A good moisturizer helps to nourish and hydrate the skin, creating a protective barrier to prevent any moisture loss.
