5 Products That Really Hydrate Skin and Up Your Complexion Game


I still prefer organic skincare but as I get older, I’m open to some products that deliver a little extra. I’ll use retinol creams during the winter and I’ve become obsessed with hydration. With this more open-minded approach to skincare, I still pay close attention to ingredients and stick to brands that maintain high standards. I’m a skincare addict that like to upgrade my complexion game without taking too many risks.

So with all that said, here are my picks of the best hydrating products today that also repair and use the safest best ingredients to do it.


Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream

PRICE: $38 (1.6 oz)

This cream is incredibly moisturizing and with only seven gentle, non-irritating ingredients, it is great for dry, sensitive skin types.



Luminance Deep Hydration Organic Moisturizer

PRICE: $30

This cream is organic, vegan and cruelty-free. It’s also packed with the finest, nutrient-rich ingredients like apricot kernel, grape seed, Jojoba, avocado and lavender water. What is amazing is how well this organic cream works. It leaves your skin healthy and supple looking and helps it retain moisture and regain elasticity.



Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment

PRICE: $105

Yes, this is expensive, and yes, you’re going to have some doubts about shelling out the money, but after approximately one week, your crazy-smooth, soft, and clear skin will have made up for the price a billion times over. This cult-favorite night treatment is 5 percent lactic acid, an AHA that gently exfoliates skin on a cellular level to clear clogged pores, plump fine lines, and fade dark spots and acne scars.


Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration Serum

PRICE: $75

This multipurpose formula hydrates and brightens dull skin with three forms of hyaluronic acid, strawberry extract, and an amino acid-derived peptide. This favorite from Allies of Skin seriously ups the game with a blend of peptides, stem cells, and antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and promote plump, hydrated skin that glows.



Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum


This is one of the most popular vitamin C serums on the market for a reason. Its no-nonsense blend of antioxidants, skin-loving nutrients, and whopping 15% Ascorbic acid helps to boost collagen production so your skin looks even more hydrated.
