Ingredients to keep your skin hydrated, from an expert  

Your skin needs special care in the winter months. Here, Patpichaya Kultan, the director of JA The Resort’s Calm Spa in Dubai, shares six ingredients to look for in your skincare to keep your skin hydrated. 

  • Broccoli seed oil 

    This oil forms a protective layer that helps trap moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. It is lightweight, non-greasy and absorbs easily. It is known to be high in vitamin C, which is said to have skin brightening benefits.  

  • Daikon radish oil 

    This oil is a natural emollient from the raphanus sativa plant that absorbs quickly into skin leaving it feeling soft, smooth and supple.  

  • Flax seed oil 

    Flax seed oil is high in omega-3 and helps seal in moisture, which improved your skin’s hydration. 

  • Cucumber oil 

    It is not a famous oil for many skincare junkies, however, Kultan says it helps retain moisture and is rich in omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins B1 and C.  

  • Kombucha  

    The fermented black tea is rich in vitamins and organic acids that can help attain a glowing complexion.   

  • Fermented ginger  

    Rich in antioxidants, fermented ginger has been used for thousands of years in Asian countries, according to Kultan.
