Keep Skin Hydrated Longer With These 3 Tips
By Margaret McGriff |
Do you cleanse and moisturize with the right products, but still find your skin becoming dull and dry throughout the day? Your skin-care routine may need a few tweaks. Here are three quick and easy things you can do to keep your skin hydrated all day long.
A Quick Refresher
Just as you may need a quick drink of water during the day, you skin may also need a quick burst of hydration. Water sprays like Evian’s Facial Spray ($18) are perfect for a skin-care pick-me-up. The ultrafine mist quickly absorbs into skin, boosts the effectiveness of your other skin-care products and doesn’t mess up your makeup.
Another trick to keeping skin nourished and hydrated throughout the day starts with a good hydrating mask. For an intense overnight treatment, try Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Water-Max Sleeping Mask ($48), which packs a ton of moisture into a weightless gel that gets deep into skin, as well as boosts elasticity while you sleep.
Using a facial oil right after cleansing can revive dehydrated skin and then keep it that way. Laura Mercier’s Flawless Skin Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil ($62) is a lightweight blend of rosehip seed and safflower oils that infuse skin with moisturizing nutrients for younger- and brighter-looking skin. It’s also great for keeping lips soft and conditioned.
