What’s your relationship like with your skin? Sometimes, particularly in winter, it can feel like a constant battle to keep a healthy, hydrated glow. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with all the moisturizers, masks, and hydration serums in the market, so we decided to get back to the basics of what our skin really needs to maintain our moisture barrier and stay radiant.
Read on to see some of our favorite ingredients for promoting skin that shines, all year long.
Hydrators vs. Moisturizers
Do you know the difference? Before getting into some of the individual ingredients we look for in skincare products, you might want to know what exactly these products are doing for your skin. Hydrators help attract and bind water to your skin while moisturizers lock in hydration and create a soft, smooth feel.
We love using a magical combination of the two for a well-rounded skincare routine.
