Don’t let the tough summer months wreak havoc on your skin
There are skincare tips that make sense all year round. Sunscreen should be applied daily—beach trip or no beach trip. Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day (let this hydration calculator be your guide!) is also advised. That said, the often-unpredictable summer months always call for some form of reinforcement. A prime example? Doubling down on hydration. It’s important for great summer skin. And with the products ahead, dryness and dullness don’t stand a chance.
From a lightweight, moisture-boosting facial toner down to a cult favorite dry oil, we round up top-rated skincare products designed to replenish moisture and provide long-lasting hydration. Which should you add to your routine in time for the summer?
LuLuLun Classic Moisturizing Mask, ₱995
Insert this step into your routine—after cleansing, toner and serum, but right before moisturizer—for an instant boost of moisture. Packed with hyaluronic acid and acacia honey, this classic mask improves the skin’s moisture retention and leaves it plump and supple. All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes.
Since this famous Japanese sheet mask now comes in a box, regular use just got easier to do.
Dewytree Ultra Vitalizing Snail Cream, ₱899
When we said that dryness and dullness don’t stand a chance, we had Dewytree’s Ultra Vitalizing Snail Cream in mind. This nighttime moisturizer is a heavyweight. Formulated with snail mucus filtrate, it not only heals and revitalizes skin, but is long-lasting, too. Expect dewy, moisturized skin through the night until the morning.
Human Nature Hydrating Toner, ₱199.75
Here’s a moisturizing toner that can easily give serums a run for their money. The reason? Its staying power. Its combination of skin-plumping plant collagen and moringa seed extract is whipped into a thick but lightweight toner that nourishes skin and locks in natural moisture for up to 24 hours.
While Human Nature’s Hydrating Toner is formulated for dry skin, it works like a dream for combination skin, too.
Nuxe Paris Huile Prodigieuse Florale Beauty Dry Oil, ₱2,650
This multipurpose beauty oil is a little on the pricey side, but if that 4.8 out of 5 rating tells us one thing it’s that it’s worth the splurge. Obviously, it’s achieved cult favorite status for a good reason, too. Nuxe’s blend of oils (tsubaki, argan, almond, and camellia just to name a few) works to restore moisture and then lock it in. It’s potent, so a little goes a long way, and it can be used for the face, the body and hair.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, ₱1,540
This roundup is all about doubling down on hydrating, so it wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. It’s basically a tall glass of water for parched skin.
This overnight leave-on mask comes in a cooling gel that acts as a second, intensive moisturizing barrier that goes on top of your regular moisturizer. Wash it off the next morning and say hello to dewy, healthy skin.
