BEST HYDRATING MOISTURISERS

While there are plenty of moisturisers on the market that are high performing, well developed products there are also a whole load of products that are, well….CRAP!

Loaded with alcohol, fragrance and other irritants many moisturisers could potentially make our skin more dehydrated and exacerbate the very problems we’re trying to fix. And don’t be fooled by a luxury price tag, a designer name or pretty packaging, many of the products considered to be “luxury” beauty items are the worst!

A great moisturiser has to have good ingredients, minimal to zero fragrance, use as many naturally derived ingredients as possible, be well researched and developed, and contain active ingredients proven to give visible results.

These are my favourites, the cream of the crop- the best moisturisers for dehydrated skin.

The Moisturiser by The Clinic $80

Obagi Hydrate Luxe Moisture Rich Cream $79.95

Ultraceuticals Ultra Moisturising Cream $72

100% Pure- Jasmine & Green Tea Moisturiser $36.95 at Nourished Life (If you want an all natural option).

BEST HYDRATING MAKE-UP

When it comes to make-up that hydrates the skin it can become a tricky situation finding the right product. While you want make-up to be hydrating you definitely don’t want it to be oily or heavy, so finding products that offer long lasting hydration without becoming oily is hard. These 4 favourites of mine are from different price points across the board, they all look great, wear really well and keep the skin looking moist and radiant.

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide $59.00

Arbonne Sheer Finish tinted Moisturiser $51.00

L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection BB Cream $24.99 at Priceline

Lancome Renergie Eclat Multi-Lift $110
