With all the compromises you’ve been making in life, this definitely shouldn’t be one: moisturizing. Why moisturize, you ask? Well...just as our beautiful bodies require us to hydrate with water, so does our skin.
Sadly, our skin is exposed to culprits like indoor air conditioning and pollutants on the streets that cause our beloved face and body to feel irritated and look dry & devastatingly dull.
Moisturizers don’t just add H20 back into your skin, they also trap in the water you already have to plump it up. Long story short, moisturizing perks your skin up, and gives you that healthy-looking flush that we see on our favorite IG models.
However, take note: a moisturizer is only as good as its ingredients; moisture-giving Hyaluronic acid and Glycerine, barrier-boosting Ceramides along with occlusive Waxes and Oils help create a ‘moisture reservoir’ in the skin and prevent water loss—consider this the perfect place to start. But while a glowing visage is a top priority, you need a game plan below the neck, too.
To lend a helping hand, we’ve rounded up a bunch of supercharged salves that will keep your skin in top shape, no effort needed.
Here are the 5 best moisturizers for women:
With ultra-hydrating Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and Beta-Carotene, this extraordinarily creamy formula is packed with everything you need to give you long-lasting hydration and intense nourishment for that delicate skin under your eyes. It might feel thick and heavy at first, but it instantly sinks into skin, so you don't have to wait too long to apply makeup right over it. Trust us, you won’t believe your eyes.
It only makes sense to up the ante on treating your skin overnight when the cell renewal is at its peak—that’s why you need this guy in your life. This peachy-hued gel-like-serum is designed to work on lines and wrinkles, dullness and dryness while you sleep. It’s extremely lightweight, non-comedogenic and oil-free, which makes it ideal for even the most sensitive skin. We suggest using two or three good sized drops over your face, after cleansing and before your moisturizer.
Meet the cream-gel hydrator that can be used for a 24-hour moisture surge or as a quick relief mask. Slather on a dollop of this moisturiser on chapped, flaky skin and you’ll instantly bid adieu to all signs of dryness. It contains ingredients like Aloe Water and Hyaluronic Acid that help retain moisture for a plump, dewy and glow-y appearance for 72 hours straight.
Enriched with 100% Sweet Almond Oil and Coconut Oil, this heavy-duty body butter wraps your skin in intense hydration and delivers sublime softness. It’s also infused with a cocktail of hydrating ingredients like Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Kokum Butter and Vitamins A & E that instantly impart a healthy sheen to your limbs. The bonus? It smells divine.
Trust this lip sleeping mask to turn your dry and dehydrated pout around. It works its magic by slowly melting into your lips. Leave it on while you snooze for pillow-soft lips when you wake—or use it instead of an ultra-thick balm for the ultimate luxury lip-care experience.
