The Dehydrated Skin Dream Team

At the end of last year I started to notice my skin was becoming less oily and more dry and mainly dehydrated. As someone as always had oily skin I didn't know want to do to help this, however a few months have passed and i've come across some stand out products that have saved my skin so I thought I would share them today. 
Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm - £34.00.
First up is my favourite balm cleanser, balm cleanser i've found are the best for removing make-up and leaving the skin feeling deeply cleansed and nourished. The Emma Hardie one is my favourite that i've tried and I find it really helps to soothes my skin especially when it feels dehydrated, it's the perfect spa treatment at home and a I have a full review on it here.
 Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Face Mask - £21.50.
The mask is a must have for dehydrated skin, I swipe it on and it nourishes my skin, adds moisture. It also gives a good cleanse to the skin without stripping it making it the perfect alternative to a clay mask in the colder months. The manuka honey in it also helps with any pesky blemishes. Antipodes products are also full of lots of natural goodies which makes this mask even more perfect. Full review here.  
La Roche Posay Hydraphrase Intense Masque - £13.60.
This is a new addition to me but oh my is it a gem. Moisturising masks are amazing for dry dehydrated skin however a lot of them can be a little bit too heavy on my oily skin apart from this one. This is meant to be used as a 10 minute treatment although sometimes I leave it on over night. This has saved my skin 3 times already and i've only had it 2 weeks. After recovering from a sickness bug this week my skin felt so dry so I did my normal evening skincare routine and popped this onto and my skin felt lovely, smooth and hydrated in the morning. 
Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment - £33.00.
This is my second tub of this product and it's my go to evening moisturiser. I've done a full review here; this is a gel like cream that moisturises my skin helping with the dehydration but it doesn't feel heavy or break me out. The make a difference range caters to a 3 different skin types all designed to help dehydrated skin. The main thing I love about this is that you can apply a lot of it without it feeling heavy on the skin. I would definitely recommend checking it out if you have dehydrated skin. It also smells lovely to which is an added bonus and lasts a long time too.

So those are my go to products for dehydrated skin, since using these products my skin looks a lot less dull and feels smooth and moisturised and i've even found my skin to be less oily since using products to hydrate the skin.

If you have dehydrated skin what products do you use?
