Skin Hydration

Winter is officially here, it has been chilly early in the morning! I love the fashion for winter, but the worse part of course is how dry your skin becomes! I’m sharing a few products in this blog that you can implement in your skincare regimen during winter. They will help to keep your skin feeling soft and hydrated. I will be discussing Bioderma’s Atoderm range and a product from Medik8.

The Atoderm range by Bioderma is intended for dry skin, to replenish dehydrated skin. These are some great products you can use:

Intensive Balm

Price: $48.99 AUD for 500ml

This body cream is perfect for any skin type. It soothes extremely dry and sensitive skin. It feels very calming and nourishing on my skin, no reaction at all! The formula itself isn’t overly thick, at first when you pump the product out it appears thick. But when you apply on the skin it absorbs instantly and feels lightweight. Best to use this product straight after having a shower. This cream is actually great to use on babies as it is fragrance free. Even if you suffer from dry, itchy skin it helps to reduce the urge to scratch. So there are many benefits to using this body balm.

Hand and Nail Cream

Price: $15.99 AUD

We tend to ignore our hands, but regularly moisturising our hands and nails is vital. This hand cream provides beautiful nourishment. I use before I go to bed so when I wake up in the morning my hands feel soft and smooth. As a matter of fact, I think it’s best to also use a hand cream after you have washed your hands as well to restore nourishment and prevent dry cuticles.

Lip Balm

Price: $15.99 AUD

Who else’s lips go super dry and chapped during winter?! A daily repairing, nourishing and soothing treatment for the lips. This lip balm is formulated with Avocado oil and Shea Butter, which explains why the formula feels very rich in texture. It keeps my lips feeling hydrated all day! As you can see in the image provided below, the product has an angled applicator, making application easier.


Medik8 Skin Rehydration Serum

Price: $79 AUD

Because I have sensitive skin, I actually thought this product would be too strong and over-powering to my skin, but it proved me very wrong! This gel-serum provides an amazing boost of hydration! It’s intentions (according to Medik8) are to ‘re-establish the skins natural hydro-balance for an improved skin texture, suppleness and luminosity.’ Everything that you want in 1 product!  Some ingredients include Vitamin B5 and Hyaluronic Acid to improve your skin texture.

The formula itself is clear, lightweight and absorbs immediately. You can use morning and night by applying 5 to 6 drops to the face, neck and décolletage. Apply this serum after you tone and before you moisturise. You will feel a difference in the smoothness of your skin.



Keep your skin hydrated all through Winter my lovelies. Another tip: Drink plenty of water! It helps to eliminate toxins and to maintain healthy skin.
