Dryness often leaves skin looking dehydrated, flaky and dull. Irritation or itchiness can follow but the most concerning side-effect is the loss of skin elasticity. Ultimately, if your skin is continually dry, this can translate into more fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. So, if you have this skin type, proactivity is key. It’s best to use a skin system formulated for Normal to Dry skin. That way, you’re ensuring that skin cells receive continuous nourishment enabling them to perform their functions optimally. If you’re dreaming about having radiant, soft, smooth skin, and minimising fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, read on. It’s time to defeat skin dryness once and for all!

Best Obagi Products
We all know that using a moisturiser morning and evening to replenish and lock in moisture is the key to hydration. The problem is that many moisturisers only provide a boost of short-term hydration. Whilst skin feels nourished at the time, within a few hours, it's back to feeling dry again. Quite obviously the solution is to give skin what it needs which is longer-lasting hydration.
We can’t talk about moisturisers without mentioning clinically proven, dermatologist-tested hydrator, Obagi Hydrate®. Cutting edge Hydromanil™ technology has been harnessed to enable molecules within Obagi Hydrate® to form a matrix on the skin’s surface, creating a barrier and enabling them to remain on the cells for much longer. Skin is left nourished, and importantly further water loss is prevented. This is achieved because water is retained within the layers of the skin, gradually delivering nourishment from active compounds for up to eight hours.
Alongside Hydromanil, this formulation also includes naturally enriching ingredients including Shea Butter, Mango Butter and Avocado Oil. This moisturiser really is your ultimate weapon for eradicating the ultimate skin villain, dryness. With regular use, skin will look beautifully smooth, supple, radiant, and there will be a visible improvement to fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. At last, you can give dry skin the big heave-ho with our favourite skin saviour, Obagi Hydrate®.
