Hydrating and moisturising your whole body is so important. It makes your skin soft, look healthy and can help with the healing and fading of cuts and scars. It has also been discovered that people who use moisturiser are less likely to form wrinkles then those who don’t and let their skin be dry. Moisturiser can do all of the following and more, prime, plump, protect, repair, and help circulation.
So, I have gone through my daily moisturising routine and picked out my favourite moisturising products. You should try them too!
Now the phrase of moisturising your hair sounds weird, but it is super important to give your hair something to help it grow healthily and make it look healthy. I absolutely swear by the ‘Silk Oil Of Morocco Hair and Skin Treatment’. I really only use this for my hair (not my skin), but it is a miracle serum (for both skin and hair btw). I put this on/in my hair whenever; when it’s dry or wet. It really helps with (it pretty much gets rid of) frizz and helps delay haircuts as it assists in sealing and preventing split ends.
TIP: Moroccan Oil can tend to be expensive but it is definitely worth investing in it because it will transform your hair.
‘Smith’s Rosebud Lip Salve’ and ‘Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E’ are my two holy grail lip products. They both pretty much immediately heal my dry lips and both smell amazing. If anyone ever asks me what the best lip balms are, I immediately suggest these. I highly recommend picking theses products up 🙂
TIP: Use a lip scrub (I use the Lush ones) before applying these in the morning and night for extra soft lips.
‘Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days- Rich Repairing Cream’ I love this moisturiser. OMG. I am not going to say much about this cream I’ll just say, It is amazing. Overnight Hydration. Soft Skin. Super Cheap. Must Have. Does’t Leave You Feeling Greasy.
TIP: Apply this as much as possible but always apply after having a shower. This is because your pores open in the shower, so applying the cream straight after the shower means extra hydration and softer skin because the cream absorbs deeper.
I love this product and brand. ‘SKINN Dimitri James Hand Restore Cream’ smells amazing and softens my hands immediately. It is a heavily moisturising product and amazingly doesn’t leave your hands greasy. I highly recommend this product, it smells like roses and leaves your hands feeling amazing.
TIP: When applying hand cream, always rubs some cream into your elbows as well. This area gets super dry and when you get into the routine of rubbing cream into your elbows when you put on hand cream, your elbows with be really soft and not get cracked.
‘Lush Tea Tree Water Toner Water’, ‘Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater’. Both of these are super calming and refreshing but hydrating none the less. Mario Badescu smells absolutely amazing (it smells really similar to the Rosebud Lip Salve lip balm). The Tea Tree spray also treats blemishes (YAY).
TIP: Spray these after having a shower so they can get into your pores and “treat” them. Also then continue to spray them whenever you want and/or need. Put them in the fridge for an extra refreshing feel.
‘Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil’, I love any Rosehip Oil. It is super hydrating, helps reduce redness and blemishes and makes my skin glow. Rosehip Oil is a must have in any beauty routine. And, there is not much else to say. Buy some and you won’t regret it.
TIP: Never worry about how much of this oil you put on your skin; even if you have oily skin. If you have oily skin, this oil will give your skin the oil it needs and therefore reduce natural and annoying oil production.
‘SKINN Dimitri James Wrinkle Balm (Replenishing Night Treatment)’ I love this stuff. I had a crazy rash on my face a few months back and needed a moisturiser ASAP and my mum had this unopened in her draw and she gave it to me. I am now on my second tub and it has amazing moisturising qualities and it is a highly recommended product from me.
TIP: Apply this to your skin after your shower and after spraying your face with the Tea Tree Water (Lush) because that’s when your pores will be open and the moisturiser with go deep into your pores and nourish your skin.
There you go guys, hope you learnt some stuff about hydration and moisturising and maybe now you can go and get some of these products or similar products. Or, I hope this post has motivated you to be more committed to moisturising.
