The secret to looking good is hydration. It’s the ultimate truth.
If you’re nourishing your body with enough liquid, you get the rewards of glowy skin, smooth texture, and an absence of lines. Any objections?
None? Great! As we affirm this, there are two steps we must take. The first is to drink water. Unless they make the Paris Hilton NanoDrop a reality, we have no other option but to keep glasses filled with water at all times and to lug around our Kleen Kanteens and Hydro Flasks.
The second step is to equip yourself with some serious skincare solutions. And with this, I see that I don’t need to tell anyone twice.
Wishful Get Even Rose Oil
A product made lovingly by beauty icon Huda Kattan; this oil promises a dewy look in 10 to 28 days. Aside from rose oil, the formulation contains jojoba, meadowfoam, sunflower, and carrot oils.
Drunk Elephant Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Spray
I’m a facial spray hoarder, so I immediately opened and used this one from Drunk Elephant when it arrived. It doesn’t sting, nor does it have a funny smell. It gives relief when my skin feels tight. It contains amino and fatty acids, electrolytes, and ceramides to support your skin’s acid mantle, so you get optimum protection. It’s also packed with coconut water and sodium PCA.
Aesop In Two Minds Facial Hydrator
The In Two Minds line from Aesop is one I patronize. I first tried the In Two Minds Facial Cleanser to keep pimples at bay. I then have no question that this hydrator will be good for combination skin. Lightweight and fast-absorbing, it refreshes where your skin needs it and repairs the problem points. This product draws its effectiveness from witch hazel and sandalwood.
NARS Skin Light Reflecting Firming Serum
My bottle of this is now half-empty because it’s what I have been using in the morning before sunblock and at night before applying facial oil. Its unique texture feels like a cross between a gel and a serum. However, it’s not heavy on the skin, nor does it break me out. This serum contains encapsulated baobab oil droplets from the Tree of Life to give you hydration without the sticky feeling.
Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution/ Dr. Jart+ Soothing Hydra Solution
I’ve heard so much about Dr. Jart+ and how they’ve got solutions for every skin concern. The Vital Hydra Solution revitalizes your skin with Aquaxyl and Super Vital Complex. If you have sensitive skin, go for the Soothing Hydra Solution. The trick is to use this after your toner and leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes.
