Skin slugging, the latest skincare craze, is all about achieving that dewy, radiant complexion. But what exactly is it, and is it right for your skin type?
Basically, skin slugging involves applying a thick layer of a thick moisturiser, often containing petroleum or ceramides, as the final step in your night time skincare routine. This creates a barrier that locks in moisture, preventing water loss while you sleep. It's a game-changer for those with dry or sensitive skin, as it provides intense hydration and soothes irritation.
However, it might not be ideal for everyone. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, slugging may exacerbate breakouts and cause unnecessary clogging and congestion. Always patch-test and adjust your routine accordingly to achieve that coveted "slug life" glow while keeping your skin happy.
