I don't know about you, but since we were put into lockdown, my skin has been super dry and even more sensitive than usual, and so I thought I would do a post on the Bioderma Hydrabio range, which is targeted at dry, sensitive skin types, and so if you have also been suffering with this kind of issue, I would recommend checking them out below, as it is a very affordable range.
Starting with cleansing the skin, we have the Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising Make-up Removing Micelle Solution (£10.80 for 250ml). This is a daily moisturising non-rinse gentle cleanser and makeup remover, which can be used on the face and eyes, soothing, decongesting and respecting the skin's balance, teaching the skin to moisturise itself again. The Micelle Solution is super quick and easy to use - you just apply some onto a cotton pad and use all over the eyes and face without having to rinse it off. As I mentioned, this range is suitable for sensitive skin types, and the formula is very gentle to use, yet highly effective at cleansing and removing makeup. The patented Aquagenium biological complex stimulates the skin's cellular capabilities, re-training it to generate in depth, and to lock in on the surface, the moisture essential for its balance. I also think the price is very reasonable too, for a more scientific-based brand compared to a high street brand, which is rarely as effective.
I love a bath and a relaxing face mask, and if you do too, then I would recommend trying the Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising Mask (£15.50 for 75ml). For a face mask, this is a very generous amount and it comes in a tall tube with an easy to release applicator. This is a gentle mask to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin to give long-lasting moisture when your skin is extremely dehydrated and is in need of extra care. I find that this mask makes my skin feel more comfortable, softer and even more radiant and it is a lovely gentle mask to sit back and relax with. To use, you simply apply a generous layer over the face and neck, leave it on for ten minutes, although I always leave masks on as long as possible whilst in the bath, and then remove the excess or massage into the skin for a longer-lasting treatment. You can use the mask every day for the first week and then after that, once or twice a week as it is so effective that it will soon have your skin in much better condition.
Unless it is a night cream, I don't like heavy moisturisers, and so the Bioderma Hydrabio Light Moisturising Care Cream (£15.20 for 40ml) is a great option for me. This smooth cream generates hydration and intense radiance within the skin, both immediately and lastingly. The formula contains Vitamin PP to strengthen the skin's resistance and impermeability, Vitamin E to protect the skin against oxidative stress and combat premature cutaneous ageing and Apple Seed Extract to stimulate the activity of Aquaporins, which are the natural channels allowing water flow within the skin. By eliminating dead skin cells, and progressively reducing the cornea layer, the skin's upper layer, salicylic acid equalises and smooths the skin's surface, enabling a hydrated, smooth and comfortable base for makeup. The Moisturiser comes with a push-down applicator, which I love in skincare products, as then you aren't having to re-dip your fingers into jars and products. It is also super easy to incorporate the Light Cream into your skincare routine, simply apply onto the face and neck both morning and evening and press gently into the skin, allowing it to work its way through the different layers of the skin.
