Makeup Mondays: Keeping my skin hydrated

As someone who constantly struggles with dry skin all year round, I am constantly looking for the best hydrating skincare products. After having tried many products for the past few years, I’m finally here to share them with you!

Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist
The first step to any skincare routine is to wash our faces to get off all the dirt and grime we collect on our skin throughout the day. It’s kind of like wiping the slate clean! My go-to face wash is the Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist. It has a refreshing lime smell that always reminds me of summer. It’s tough enough to leave my face feeling clean but gentle enough that my face doesn’t feel tight after a good rinse. Because it foams up after running it under some warm water and rubbing your hands together, a small dollup of this face wash goes a long way, which I truly appreciate. 

Belif Aqua Bomb
This moisturizer is literally my holy grail and lifeline when it comes to skincare. It keeps my face soft and moisturized, while never clogging up my pores – which happens a lot with cream-based moisturizers. It settles into my skin within seconds and feels cool and refreshing. 

Laneige Sleep Mask
I use this sleep mask once a week — usually on a Wednesday or Thursday as a quick pampering pick me up during the middle of the week. Right before I go to bed and after I’ve washed my face, I scoop up a small amount (about the size of a quarter) with my hands and rub it all over my face and neck. The next morning, I simply rinse my face, leaving it soft and moist for the entire day. I like using this just as a way to remind myself to stay glowing and fresh and preparing for the weekend!

Sheet Face Masks
I like to end the weekend as a mini celebration by using a Sheet Face Mask to really hydrate my face. I’ve been a huge fan of the Sephora Collection Masks. Two of my favorites are the Pearl and Coconut Masks. Putting on a face mask is the perfect way to pamper myself on a low friendly budget yet still feel like royalty. 

Ahava Dead Sea Mineral Hand Cream
I first received this product as a Christmas gift and it has truly changed my life. I’m not a fan of hand creams that leave my hands feeling sticky and oily, and I was really happy to have been introduced to this hand cream. It’s water-based and simply melts into your skin within minutes. It has a really nice scent (similar to Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Lotion) but not as overbearing.
