Beauty Wednesday: Hydration

Whether in the Summer or Winter months, we all need hydration. Living in a tropical island, hydration is especially important when exposed to the sun on a regular basis. I am a huge fan of hydration ( although I must confess, drinking more water is NOT at the top of my list, but should be) I have tried a number of products in order to achieve that top notch hydration and these are a few of my favorites year round!



Weleda Skin Food: I love how this deeply moisturising all-in-one cream makes my skin feel. Not only is it perfect for the body, it works wonders when applied to the face. I usually use it before a flight, as my skin can get pretty dry and it moisturizes throughout. It is quite heavy in texture but it sinks into the skin quickly. A Little goes a long way.


Rosehip Oil : I have previously talked about how much I love Rosehip Oil. Now, my skin is combo to oily normally, and this oil does not make me break out . I love how it smells and how light it feels on my skin. It is perfect for daily use, either day or night . My preferred brand is : A’kin Rose Hip Oil.


THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT GlamGlow: I am IN LOVE with this deep hydrating mask. It smells amazing, it leaves your skin feeling perfect, and it can be used in so many ways! My personal favourites are either pre-flight or overnight. I will definitely be indulging in the full-sized version.



Dream Cream (Lush): I have also raved about this cream and will definitely be taking it with me for my next tropical vacation. It feels amazing on the skin and it provides daylong hydration.


King of Skin (Lush): I received this little gem as a birthday gift last year and became obsessed with it. It is a “butter bar” and it acts as a moisturizer for the skin during shower time. Use it after washing and lightly rinse it off. Pat dry (gently so the skin absorbs the oil) and it will keep you smooth with no need of lotion!


Buffy (Lush): This exfoliating shower bar is also perfect for hydration. Taking away dead skin cells and leaving the skin moisturised afterwards is perfection in my book! It is not harsh exfoliation (perfect for sensitive skin) and the cocoa and shea butters in Buffy will leave the skin hydrated! No need for lotion after either!

What are your favorite products for hydration?
