***in partnership with belif Skincare
For the plumpest, softest skin ever, get your hands on these hydration helpers. Minimalism is having a moment – between the slew of documentaries, bestselling books and #hygge design trends, I’ve been inspired to cut the clutter, especially on my bathroom vanity. Paring down the plethora of lotions and potions in favour of a do-it-all moisturizer straight from the #topshelf of Korea’s beauty insiders.
As someone who can’t get enough exfoliation, I usually end up over-doing it, irritating my skin, and need to reset my routine with a super hydrating moisturizer that won’t make my sensitive skin unhappy. Right now I’m digging belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb. It contains lady’s mantle, a powerful plant (with the best name) that helps to shrink the appearance of pores, oat husk, prized for its ability to boost moisture in the skin and free-radical fighting malachite – a copper mineral that puts the brakes on free radical damage (the invisible damage we can’t see from UV rays, pollution and more). The result is skin looks super fresh, hydrated and I swear it has more spring to it. One of the biggest things I look for in a moisturizer is that it’s not too thick or heavy as I’m prone to shine and thanks to the gel-like texture it absorbs right away so it never “pills” when you put makeup on top.
If you want skin to be even more satiated with moisture, opt for the belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. I’ll reach for this one if I’m travelling a lot and my skin looks weathered. It’s free of parabens, mineral oil so you get the most from its key moisturizing ingredients like glycerin.
