Skin flooding is a method dermatologists have been using for years, and when done correctly poses many benefits to the skin. Alice Henshaw, founder of Skincycles, tells Real Simple, “Using hyaluronic acid and other smaller molecular serums on damp skin can help them to draw moisture in, allowing them to hydrate the skin on a deeper level.” With this skincare trend, you can soothe and hydrate your dry and sensitive skin, especially during the frigid winter months.
Skin flooding can work for all skin types, including sensitive and oily skin. If you struggle with dry skin, it’s best to practice skin flooding daily at nighttime, while if you have oily skin, you’ll benefit most from skin flooding once a week. Those who suffer from acne should be cautious when practicing skin flooding, as combining products can sometimes lead to breakouts. Make sure that you are familiar with the products you’re using and consult a dermatologist before trying the skincare trend.
