If you have been struggling with feeling hydrated this season and are looking for ways to quench your skin’s thirst; Skin Flooding might be the latest trend for you! Let me first start off by saying that this is a protocol we have been doing for years but Tiktok has sent it to the front lines of Beauty News. Here we are, let’s talk about it.
What TF is Skin Flooding?
Skin flooding is a term that is used to describe the products on the skin that encourage skin hydration. This process includes layering various products that support skin hydration- this contains ingredients like hyaluronic acid. But the process is incredibly simple. All you need is a gentle cleanser, a toner, a serum, and a moisturizer, sounds simple right? It is- however; we are specifying the ingredients that are involved that will create a beautiful hydrated complexion. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, deuterium oxide (helps prevent trans-epidermal water loss), shea butter, and AHAs.
What Should I Use to Skin Flood?
Since this trend is effortless, you do not need anything too accelerated. The main concept is to “flood” the skin with hydration. You want to start off with a gentle acid-free cleanser like the Skin Script Green Tea Cleanser because it doesn’t strip your natural oils. You then tone your skin with a gentle toner to give it a deep cleanse, you can use the Skin Script Cucumber Toner. Leave the skin somewhat damp and then apply the serum with hydrating ingredients like Skin Script Ageless Hydrating Serum. After, apply a creamy and rich moisturizer such as Skin Script Hydrating Moisturizer to lock in all this excellent moisture and leave the skin feeling like peppermint.
Ok, so we know that this amazing trend can help with adding moisture to your skin. But are there any negatives? Because this procedure is so simple it does not use any active ingredients which means it may not help with other concerns such as acne and hyperpigmentation. Also, because we are adding a great deal of hydration this protocol may not be suitable for anyone with oily skin.
Overall, I believe this trend is actually one that I know will be more than just a TikTok fab but something that will be and can be implemented for different people with different skin types who all want and need hydration. Especially during the cold and brutal winter when our skin is feeling and looking dull, this protocol can be extremely helpful. I also believe that it can be a great beginner routine for anyone that is starting a skincare routine. Try this trend out and let us know how your skin likes it. Comment Below.
