With well hydrated skin, you get healthy looking skin, which will in turn look younger due to the suppleness and elasticity in the skin. It is also the key to avoiding common skin woes such as skin rash (from over-drying) and pimples! More importantly when I am doing makeup for my clients & brides, I want to make sure that the skin is well hydrated prior to the makeup session so that the makeup will look flawless and last throughout the day.
So all the talk about hydration. What is the one range that promises hydration? Take a look at the latest range from Envie De Neuf called Eau My Beauty. Why do I like this? Simply because it is simple. Only 3 steps to perfectly hydrated skin, for both morning and evening skincare application.
In our hot and humid climate, we sometimes think we do not need any moisturizer since our face sometimes get oily quickly. This is untrue! Hydration is important whether you have oily, dry, combination or healthy skin. Besides keeping hydrated with drinking water, we need to keep our skin hydrated too. Well hydrated skin is the very first step to healthy skin. I cannot stop stressing this to all my clients and friends.
So most importantly is to find a hydrating moisturizer that does not make your skin feel greasy after application, yet able to lock in water to keep skin looking supple. We all know about looking at water-based products. Do you know what else is important for me? For a person who has the most sensitive skin around, I only use products that are as simple and botanical as possible.
Here are the 3 items you would probably only need for a full skincare regime, morning and evening.
Eau My Beauty Aqual Gel
Step 1 :
Apply this watery gel essence after cleansing. Recommended to pump 2-3 times of this Aqua Gel on a cotton pad and apply on face. I prefer to apply it with my fingertips though.
Upon application, the gel will turn into a very watery liquid that quickly absorbs into the skin. This gel helps to re-balance the hydration level of the skin and keeps it moist longer as it deeply penetrates in its watery form.
Eau My Beauty Eye Gel
Step 2 :
I know many people avoid using any eye treatment product mainly due to the fear of milia seeds forming or sheer laziness. Good news for those who have not found the right product, with the correct gel texture and the promise of no oily bumps forming. For those who are lazy, PLEASE START!
I have been using Envie De Neuf DNA eye serum and it has worked so well for me. However, I do have people who have told me they prefer the eye treatment to have a more 'solid' feel to it than serum. This Eye gel is lightweight yet does give you the suppleness you want in gel form products. The best attraction I must say is the Brightening and hydrating benefits. It leaves you eye supple, lessen the puffiness and melts away your laugh lines to create a youthful appearance.
I especially love the refreshing sensation immediately with application.
I now alternate between the DNA eye serum and this eye gel, especially in the day before my makeup.
Eau My Beauty Moisture Serum
Step 3 :
So I've heard you. You avoid moisturizer because it feels like you have a layer of paste on or it makes you look so greasy.
Here comes the lightest weight moisturizer for you, in serum form! As it is a serum, this allows it to penetrate and absorb deeper into your skin to reap its benefits. Just 2-3 pumps and apply with your fingers on face and neck.
"Specially formulated with multiple hydrating actives as low- weight molecular Sodium Hyaluronate, extracts Hydrolyzed Adansonia Digitata, Salicornia Herbacea, Saccharide Isomerate, PolyglutamicAcid and potent moisturizing complex of Ceramides and Phytosphingosine to maintain skin’s ideal moisture level, this serum provides speedy supply of moisture and long-lasting nourishment into the skin to regulate and soften skin texture. Your skin is restored and infused with fresh hydration all day."
Prices start from $85 for the Aqua Gel to $128.
