If you have a dry skin type, you’ll know first-hand how uncomfortable it can be. But did you know that a serum is actually one of the most effective ways of restoring a hydrated, happy complexion? This is due to the way that serums deliver high concentrations of active ingredients - such as hyaluronic acid and sensitivity-reducing neurosensine - directly to the skin.
The best part about serums is that although lightweight, they hydrate the skin much more effectively than the even the most nourishing of moisturisers. This is due to the molecules they’re made up of that penetrate deeply into the skin.
Not sure where to start? Let’s take a look at four of La Roche Posay’s best serums for dry skin and the ingredients that make them skincare heroes.
Toleriane Ultra Dermallergo Serum
Best for: dry skin prone to sensitivity
If you’re a fan of Toleriane Ultra moisturiser you’re sure to love Toleriane Ultra Dermallergo Serum. Intensely hydrating and soothing, this concentrated serum is formulated to reduce signs of sensitivity and feelings of dryness, itchiness and tightness for up to 48 hours.
This is the first neurosensine-concentrated serum from La Roche-Posay that provides sensitive and allergy-prone skin with a daily drop of power using its start ingredient, Neurosensine: a derivative of the protein dipeptide that is produced naturally by the body. Thermal Spring Water and osmolyte also help to intensely soothe and restore the skin’s protective barrier. For extra comfort, store the serum in the fridge or within a cool area for 30 minutes before applying. This will bring a refreshing feel to sensitised skin.
Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Best for: dry skin with ageing signs
If your concerns are mainly around dryness and ageing signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, then Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum can help to recover bounce and suppleness. Specifically formulated for dehydrated skin, it’s formulated with two different-sized molecules of hyaluronic acid. Larger molecules treat the surface of the skin and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while smaller molecules penetrate deeper into the skin to restore plumpness. Additionally, Vitamin B5 and Madecassoside help repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen synthesis.
Hydraphase Intense Serum
Best for: dehydrated and sensitive skin
La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, hyaluronic acid fragments, arginine and serine combine to hydrating effect in Hydraphase Intense Serum. Formulated to have a dual action, this hydrating serum intensely hydrates the skin for up to 24 hours by infusing it with water while leaving it feeling smooth and soft. It also has a melt-in, non-greasy texture that feels fresh and lightweight on the skin. It’s also non-comedogenic so it won’t block the pores or cause congestion.
Rosaliac AR Intense Localized Redness Serum
Best for: dry skin that’s prone to flushing
If you also experience redness alongside dryness, Rosaliac AR Intense Localized Redness Serum may be the right option for you. Ingredients such as ambophenol, neurosensine and Thermal Spa Water make this intensive concentrate ideal for treating dry and fragile skin while reducing the appearance of flushing. Ultra-fresh and non-oily, it should leave your skin feeling comforted, calm and hydrated.
