The Hydration Heroes You Need in Your Beauty Arsenal

Because your thirsty skin needs moisture, ASAP

Ah, winter. That time of year when your skin gets drier than the Sahara Desert and has a lot in common with a shriveled up raisin. It’s also when your favourite foundation betrays you, and even your best highlighter can’t win out against a dull, dry complexion.

While dry skin isn’t just a seasonal concern, it’s especially exacerbated during the colder months, thanks to plummeting temperatures, dry air, low humidity and indoor heating. The result?
