Your Everyday Hydrating Facial Routine

If you have dry and dehydrated skin, finding a soothing yet protective skincare routine is vital for keeping your complexion healthy looking. You’ll need each product within your regime to help your skin retain water and protect the skin barrier, without overloading it with excess oil. Not sure where to start? Here’s our recommended everyday hydrating facial routine and the CeraVe products to include.

Step one: Remove makeup and impurities with a hydrating cleanser

First things first, you’ll need to cleanse your skin twice a day: once in the morning and again in the evening. This will help to remove makeup, debris and pollution from the skin, and create a clean and receptive base for the rest of the products that follow. Take care to use a gentle product such as CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser that’s suitable for normal to dry skin. This cleanser is specifically formulated for sensitive skin and gently removes dirt and oil while increasing skin hydration.

Step two: Lock in moisture with a hyaluronic acid-rich serum

Once your skin is cleansed and patted dry, a serum will help to lock in and retain moisture. Serums are an effective way of delivering active ingredients directly to the skin thanks to their lightweight low-molecular structure. CeraVe’s Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum, for example, is formulated with the humectant hyaluronic acid , three Essential Ceramides and Vitamin B5, which helps dry skin retain moisture for a consistently hydrated, radiant complexion alongside Vitamin B5 that helps to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier.

Step three: Comfort and soothe the skin with a moisturiser

Once your serum has absorbed into the skin, follow it with a moisturiser of your choice. This step will help to further lock in moisture and bring comfort to the skin. CeraVe’s AM Facial Moisturising Lotion is a great option for the morning due to its lightweight texture and broad-spectrum SPF25 protection. It’s also formulated with three naturally occurring ceramides and hyaluronic acid which retain moisture and support the skin barrier.

In the evening, your skin’s needs are slightly different so you may want to apply a slightly richer moisturiser to address skin dryness and sensitivity. CeraVe’s PM Facial Moisturising Lotion utilises patented MVE® delivery technology to help replenish ceramides and deliver controlled, long-lasting hydration while you sleep.

Step four: Hydrate the delicate area with a targeted cream

The delicate eye area can become sensitive and dehydrated if it’s not adequately hydrated, so a dedicated eye cream should be the last step within your routine. CeraVe’s Eye Repair Cream is specifically formulated to hydrate and protect the delicate eye area with three naturally occurring ceramides and hyaluronic acid. The formula leaves the eye area looking brighter, more awake and ready for the day ahead.
