NOW is a good time for moisture. We’re getting ready to shift to a summer wardrobe, and prepping now for extended periods of good weather will help to keep skin, hair and body soft and supple throughout the season.
We’ve selected some of our favourite products for high n’ heavenly hydration:
For an intensive moisture fix, Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance is an ultra-rich phytonutrient moisturiser designed to combat dry skin and reduce the signs of premature ageing. Follow it with Dermalogica’s new Invisible Physical Defence SPF30 , a physical sunscreen that works for every skin type and includes sodium hyaluronate to help hydrate skin.
Packed with rich, essential natural nutrients to nourish and moisturise hair, Pureology’s Hydrate Superfood Treatment s a hair mask for dry, colour-treated hair. Made with avocado and coconut oils, it will nourish and moisturise dry hair while strengthening its surface. The Superfood recipe works to create a smooth, shiny and frizz-free look and feel.
If your lips are in serious need of hydration, try Avant’s new Hyaluronic Acid Replenishing Lip Serum, designed to plump whilst intensively nourishing the lips.
