Moisturizers are turning to water (hello!) to deliver nutrients to skin and keep it super hydrated for hours. Have you tried water based moisturizers yet?
I know, there are hundreds of different moisturizers to choose from these days. It is daunting. But no matter what your skin type is, one thing’s for certain, we all need to maintain our moisture levels.
The latest trend in the beauty world when it comes to moisturizing skin is, hello, water!
Instead of using other ingredients, like oils, that carry nutrients into the skin, brands are now using water to help lock in moisture levels.
These water-based products use this technology to help lock in moisture and help make skin look plump and smooth. They can be used alone in the summer months or can be layered with other products.
You’ll find during the summer months, as I do, that they’re a super lightweight alternative to heavier creams I need in the winter and you won’t need to use other products.
Here’s a few water based moisturizers to have on your radar:
