Ask any makeup artist or skin care expert and they’ll tell you that hydrated skin is the key for both better makeup application and maintaining a long-term youthful glow. And the need for hydration doesn’t stop there; everything from our lashes to our scalp could use a little extra moisture, especially in winter months. Looking for products with ingredients that will soak into skin—not just sit on top of it—is essential, and the best way to ensure that you’re getting the maximum benefits (a.k.a. glowing, moisturized skin). Plus, it never hurts when you get a little brightening or anti-aging with your hydration. With that said, we rounded up a few of our go-to products for every area of your beauty routine, from a full-body lotion to our holy grail lip mask. Keep scrolling to see why these products will never leave our shelves…
1. Stress-Fix Body Crème, $50
This might just be the thickest, most luxurious body cream we’ve ever used. Plus, the soothing lavender scent makes getting ready for the day that much better.
2. Kristin Ess Weightless Hydration Daily Scalp + Hair Mask, $14
We didn’t realize how important scalp care was until our favorite hair queen Kristin Ess released her new line of products. Healthy hair starts at the roots, so a daily hair mask is an easy way to add a hydration boost to your shower routine.
3. True Botanicals Renew Pure Radiance Face Oil, $110
If you’re worried about the idea of putting oil onto your skin, this is the product you need. Not only is it made up of soothing ingredients like passionfruit and papaya seed oils that will deliver deep hydration, but the natural ingredients won’t break you out.
4. Sara Happ The Dream Slip Lip Mask, $34
This luxurious lip mask is the best way to combat those dry, cracked, painful winter lips (we’ve all been there). Apply a generous coat before bed and wake up with lips prepped for your lip product of choice.
5. Peach and Lily Good Skin Day Drench + Nourish Sheet Mask, $6
Frequent flyers, this one is for you. Nothing sucks moisture out of your skin like a long plane ride, and this sheet mask does exactly what it promises: drench your skin with deep hydration and nourish with anti-inflammatory and brightening ingredients.
6. Ciaté Marula Cuticle Oil , $7.70
Looking to extend the life of your manicure? Having hydrated cuticles is the first step, and we love this oil for a quick boost, especially in colder weather when hands are prone to dryness.
7. Glossier Priming Moisturizer, $22
Not only will this hydrating primer lead to smoother makeup application, but with your skin feeling plumped up and soothed, you might find yourself applying foundation with a lighter touch.
8. Shiseido Full Lash Serum, $36
After a long day of wearing mascara, sometimes our lashes need a little break, and this hydrating formula will condition and restore them to their natural luster. It’s also fast drying, which means more time for beauty sleep!
9. Lancer Skincare Intensive Night Treatment, $155
If you’re looking for deep hydration, there’s no better product than this rich night cream. The hydrating properties will not only leave you looking glowing the next morning, but also have long term anti-aging benefits.
10. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Cream, $32
The delicate skin under our eyes often needs a little extra love (or in other words, a lot more hydration). Hyaluronic acid is one of the best ingredients for dry skin that nourishes from the inside out, so when your eyes are feeling a little extra tired, this is the boost you need.
