Can TikTok’s Reverse Skincare Hack Banish Dry Skin? I Tried It – Refinery29

If TikTok is to be believed, though, the results are more than simply aesthetic — and it might be down to the ingredients in the products. Ava mentions honey (known for healing wounds, strengthening the skin barrier and reducing inflammation) and ceramides, which are essentially the glue that holds the skin together. A lack of ceramides results in dry, itchy, irritated skin so they are essential for keeping skin smooth, soft and glowing. Ava opts for a soothing toner and recommends going for a version that doesn’t contain active ingredients (for example, exfoliating acids like glycolic or salicylic acid, which may not bode well for dry skin), fragrance or alcohol — both of which may cause dryness and irritation in some skin types.
