If you live with dry skin I’m sure you understand how important it is to hydrate and moisturise from head to toe. Sometimes no matter how well you take care of your diet and body the dryness persists, from split ends to dry lips and the feet. In this case, your beauty routine needs ultra-hydrating products to parch that thirsty skin. While nobody likes a dull and lacklustre surface, when the moisture barrier becomes fragile it can have even worse consequences. If not taken care of in time it can lead to aches, pains or even to the complete opposite of producing way too much oil to compensate, which creates another hurdle of issues.
The point of the story is to keep your skin on track and pay attention to every part of your body including the knees and elbows. We understand it can be super frustrating to find products that suit you with a myriad of choices available. But never fear, we’ve got you, girl! Look no further than our round-up tried and tested moisture-rich products to drench every inch of your body in.
If you’re looking for an award-winning hair mask that lives up to its hype look no further. This lightweight, ultra-nourishing mask moisturises, smooths and detangles dry damaged hair. It packs a powerful punch with ingredients like rosehip, sweet almond, avocado oils, biotin, and algae extract. They all work to moisturize and repair weak or damaged hair, giving it some much needed TLC.
This is one product or brand you must have encountered at some point in your life, in a magazine or hair salon. The immense popularity of this blue labelled bottle is well earned and for good reason. The oil is a rich conditioning treatment that’s great for frizz-prone and damaged hair. It’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy and adds shine while strengthening the hair at the same time. While most commonly used as a styling and finishing tool you can even use as a deeply hydrating treatment before shampooing your hair.
