Everyday we’re getting closer and closer to the glory that is Spring, but that doesn’t change the fact that when I woke up this morning is was 3 degrees out and my car wouldn’t start. My apartment is pretty cold (oh the woes of cheap city living) and my work is cold (oh the woes of non-profit working). So to sum it up, I’m usually cold. Cold means dry skin. And for someone with already dry skin, these windy, cold days are not making it any better. But! I’ve got a beauty arsenal full of hydrating products that are helping me balance things out.
Glo Minerals Revive Hydration Mist
Before or after make up application a hydration mist is a skin savior. I starting using the Revive mist from Glo Minerals a few weeks ago, and it’s fitting into my skin routine perfectly. If my skin is feeling a little dry, a little spritz before make up application prevent flakey skin. After make up, a little spritz helps the make up melt with my skin and tone down any extra powder application.
Roiel Cosmetics Marula Oil
So I’m like super into oils. They can do so much more than hydrate the skin because they are full of vitamins and antioxidents and all that good stuff. The Marula Oil from Roiel Cosmetics is no exception. After I wash my face, tone, lotion, all that, a little extra oil really helps in the moisture department. Sometime even after apply lotion, my skin feels a little tight. On those nights I’ll add a few drops of oil either in with my lotion or on top. My skin always feels plump and soft in the morning.
DHC Coenzyme Q10 Cream
My skin tends to be pretty sensitive, and a thick, heavy cream is just too much for it. Thankfully, I found a hydrating, but light weight savior in the DHC Coenzyme cream. It’s so, so light weight in texture, you’d think it wouldn’t do much. But there is something magical in that little pink bottle. My skin has been less flakey and rough since I switched to this over a thicker night cream.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
Now, onto probably my absolute favorite of the bunch, the ever so famous Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I’m sure you’ve heard of it, and it lives up to the hype. I wish I’d picked it up sooner! So the product looks and feels like a lotion, but it doesn’t really sink into the skin. I give myself about half an hour after application before going to bed because it is a bit sticky. It works it’s magic overnight and in the morning skin is like crazy hydrated!
