Did you know that there’s a difference between dehydration and moisturization? Moisturization is the concept of applying something to keep moisture inside of the skin, and hydration is the concept of putting moisture in the skin. To give your skin a glow, you’ll need hydrated skin and a way to maintain it through moisturization! So, here are 6 hydrating and moisturizing products that will help to give your skin a glow.
SKIN INC Supplement Bar Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask -$45
You can leave this on as a moisturizer, or you can mix it into a serum. This is so lightweight, and it doesn’t suffocate the skin, making it great for spring and summer. You'll want to avoid products that are two thick as that can contribute to dullness. This is so light it almost feels like a sheet mask.
Hydrate Medik8 B5 intense - $72
This is a new product. It has kind of a pinkish color, but it’s pretty clear. This one has vitamin B as well as the natural moisturizing factors and hyaluronic acid. Cassandra has been using this along with her Medature moisturizer and the Ulta MD face mask.
EltaMD Skin Recovery Night Mask -$51
While Medik8 is recommended by doctors and derms. One of the top brands that doctors and derms are always raving about as well is Elta MD. This is so good. It’s kind of thick, but it ends up going one like a gel. If you use too much, it can kind of ball up. But, Cassandra finds that if her skin needs recovery, this overnight mask just leaves Cassandra’s skin feeling so supple in the morning.
Some of the key ingredients in here are eggplant, turmeric, and jojoba. The eggplant is an amazing antioxidant, and jojoba mimics what our skin naturally produces. Also, turmeric is known to be brightening, and it can help with dark spots and pigmentation.
Cassandra absolutely loves this. It also has a ton of amino acids. Amino acids are the main building blocks of peptides and proteins. So, this actually helps to nourish and hydrate the skin overnight without making you feel really greasy in the morning. If your skin is damaged, you just exfoliated, or your skin burns, this work extraordinarily well.
This is fragrance-free, and Cassandra loves that Elta MD has fragrance-free products that work for sensitive skin.
Medature PSL Repair Moisturizer-$48
This has ceramides, fatty acids, cholesterol, and a lot of things your skin makes naturally. It’s wonderful for locking in serums overnight for maximum hydration and rebuilding the skin barrier.
Paula’s Choice Youth Hydrating Fluid -$37
This is amazing, and it's the closest thing American Beauty has ever gotten to K Beauty. This goes on so sheer, it’s so beautiful, and it’s SPF 50.
