Another day, another TikTok skincare trend. The newest thing on the block that has got everyone re-fixing their skincare routine is all about hydration: say hello to skin flooding.
What is skin flooding?
While it may sound intense, I can assure you it’s not. That is to say, you’re not flooding your skin with anything to boost moisture. Instead, you’re putting on layers to lock in the water. It’s a super easy step process (in fact you’re already probably doing it without even knowing). Anybody can hop onto this trend if they want to treat any dryness or dehydration to their skin.
What are the steps to skin flooding?
Skin flooding also known as “immersing your face with moisture” is a fantastic way to get hydration and is specifically great for those who have dry skin types. Essentially, the way you start this routine is from thinnest to thickest. First, after cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser, make sure you pat dry but still leave it damp for better absorption. Next, follow this up with a hyaluronic acid serum to retain and bind moisture to the skin but make sure you tap it in. Lastly, lock everything in with a great lightweight cream that’s non-clogging.
The secret to keeping the moisture locked in is through layering the hydrating products to nourish the deeper layer of the skin for longer hydration and a healthy glow. However, the key ingredient to achieving this type of complexion is the lightweight formulas you can find within these products.
