If you are anything like me, the summer months wreak havoc on your skin, making it dry, flaky and parched. Lately, I have been more focused on keeping my skin moist and hydrated and this has gotten me thinking about what’s important in my moisturizer, specifically what features and benefits do I look for in moisturizing beauty products and I’d like to share them with you.
- Start with a Hydrating Body Wash – If you clean your body with a moisturizing wash, you start the hydration process right in the shower, when your skin is wet and better able to absorb the moisture.
- Look for Nourishing and Hydrating Ingredients When I shop for body products, I look for skin loving yummy oils and other hydrating ingredients to pamper my skin. AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash ($7) is one of my favorite hydrating products because it gently cleans, calms and soothes the skin with Colloidal Oatmeal along with a unique blend of natural oils and emollients that replenish skin’s moisture and leaves your skin softer and smoother.
- You Want Moisture that LASTS This is probably the most important feature of a moisturizing product, hydration that lasts! There is nothing worse than applying a moisturizer and then an hour later your skin is totally dry, what a waste! So moisturizers that keep on giving are the ones that I covet, like the cult fav AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Lotion ($9). This amazing and affordable Daily Moisturizer keeps your skin moist and supple for a full 24 hours and noticeably improves your skin after 2 weeks.
- Look for a Moisturizer that Calms and Heals Being a dry skin girl, I rely on products with nourishing and calming ingredients to rejuvenate my skin. I like having a go-to moisturizer, one that I know will put my skin back together when it is parched and wigging out. With the plethora of skin loving and calming ingredients in AVEENO products, I find myself turning to this brand frequently because it makes my skin supple and happy.
