Recommendations for Plumping & Hydrating

After weeks of slathering my face with thick moisturizers, I finally figured it out: my isn't is dry, it's dehydrated. Really, really, really dehydrated. From my medication and the Chicago winter, specifically, I do drink a lot of water. So, friends, what do you use to quench thirsty skin?

I'm currently using the MISSHA First Treatment Essence as a toner, and then going in with the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater before my moisturizer and squalene oil, along with the Fresh Youth Preserve Rescue Mask every third day, but it isn't giving me the water levels I need.

@fringebride Add a facial oil. Josie Maran Argan Oil and Kona Noni Glow are great for dehydrated skin. 

Re: Recommendations for Plumping & Hydrating

@fringebride Use your Missha as the first essence in the “7 skin method”. It’s my first Essence in my routine. I then follow with Pyungkang Yul (available at for $16). This will give your skin the ultimate hydration you need. I’ll post the link where we all discuss this method along with all K Beauty. It truly works!!! You can also search Gothamista on YouTube. She goes into great detail about this method and it’s benefits. ❤️❤️❤️

Re: Recommendations for Plumping & Hydrating

I heard really good things about the Pyungkang Yul essence, so I'll definitely look into purchasing it.

Also, thank you so much for recommending Gothamista! Her channel is a treasure trove of products and information, and I've been just watching video after video.

Re: Recommendations for Plumping & Hydrating

@fringebride Yay! So glad to hear that! After Gothamista, move on to Stephanie Nicole. She has a ridiculous amount of knowledge of skincare and breaks everything down for us. I’ve learned a lot from those two and reading up on medical journals. ❤️❤️❤️

The Sephora collection Rose face mask is very hydrating and inexpensive

Re: Recommendations for Plumping & Hydrating

@fringebride, two great options from Sephora are: Perricone MD Cloud Cream, and Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench.  Look for a cream or gel with hyaluronic acid in it.  I hope you get some other recommendations!

I'll be sure to check those out, thanks for the suggestions!
