How Do I Know If My Skin Is Dehydrated?

Dehydrated skin means it´s lacking water.  Some people confuse Dehydrated Skin with Dry Skin. If your skin feels itchy, is sensitive, you have fine lines and wrinkles and it´s looking dull, then it´s possible that your skin is dehydrated.

Hyaluronic Acid

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid can be found under the Hydration / Oils category. Apply a few drops of this directly onto cleansed skin. Some say apply onto damp skin however Deciem have said it really doesn’t matter. It´s water based so used as one of the first layers and can be used in both the morning and evening. There are no conflicts so this is a great product for morning and evening. You could also look at Marine Hyaluronics or NIOD MMHC2

Natural Moisturising Factors

Natural Moisturising Factors + HA (Hyaluronic Acid). This is the most amazing moisturiser ever in my opinion, I absolutely love it. Apply just a little on top of the Hyaluronic Acid for your morning routine. Make sure you buy the 100ml tube as it´s much better value.

Plant-Derived Squalane

Plant-Derived Squalane is one of my favourite oils in The Ordinary brand. It´s a wonderful oil that I find sinks into the skin really well. It´s amazing for dry lips too! Use this in your evening routine directly after the Hyaluronic Acid. Apply just a few drops and add more if you feel your skin needs it.


If you are new to The Ordinary and skincare in general, I highly recommend starting with a set regimen or asking Deciem for a personalised regimen which will save you time, money and a lot of stress. You can find lots more Deciem regimens here and also the How To Layer The Ordinary Guide.
