Great skin is the foundation to a great look.

If really want to pull off the #IWokeUpLikeThis look with #NoMakeup #NoFilter, then you’d better be paying good attention to your skin. There is no makeup that can truly imitate the glow of well-maintained, hydrated skin. Trust me, I know.

As a makeup artist I see women of all ages, sans makeup, on a regular basis. It’s instantly obvious who takes care of their skin and who doesn’t. I’m often shocked to hear clients say they are at least ten years younger than their skin appears to be.

Eating well, getting enough sleep and staying out of the sun are all vital to great skin, but there are now fantastic products out there to help us make the best of our efforts.

When it comes to moisture, it should be your number one priority in skin maintenance. Our bodies already produce a very clever substance known as hyaluronic acid. Its job is to cushion joints, hydrate the skin and the hair, and helps our skin retain its elasticity. It’s an amazing molecule, which can retain up to 1000 times its own weight in water. The problem is though, that the levels our body naturally produces degrades daily, and as we age, this process speeds up.

So what can we do? Fortunately for us, the technology of the beauty industry has caught up to the point where they’re able to produce high quality gels to keep us hydrated. The main problem has been the very high price point; until now.

Neutrogena has just launched their Hydro Boost Water Gel range to much fanfare and anticipation. A luxury product, with the same efficacy and results as those more than twice the price! The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is a pale blue, silky gel substance that is instantly absorbed into the skin. With no greasy residue, it leaves your skin feeling instantly hydrated, supple and smooth.

No matter the weather, we lose so much moisture from our skin each day. It may be the natural climate, the artificial climate (air conditioning / heating), or simple daily perspiration. Keeping up your water is one thing, but we want to make sure it gets to where it is needed and doesn’t immediately evaporate. I’ve spent a lot of time working with different skin hydrating solutions, and hyaluronic acid is by far the most effective ingredient in seeing instant results.


Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Having such an affordable option as Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel may revolutionise your skin care regime. You won’t need the big bucks to get the big name glow, just this little blue pot of hydrating molecules.

  1. I’m sure you would be used to this yourself Candice. Given that I work in the travel industry and I also enjoy travelling myself quite a bit, the frequent plane trips really take their toll on my skin. Although people think my travelling lifestyle is rather glamorous, having tight, dry and flaky skin certainly isn’t. I was planning on picking up some skincare on an upcoming trip to Japan, however what will I do when that runs out? Although a great excuse to go back there, a trip to Japan every time my face cream runs out certainly isn’t economical. I would love to try the Neutrogena Water Gel and I hope that it works for my skin.

  2. I just returned from a holiday in the US, specifically LA so perhaps it says something about the city (that I love) or about me really needing to up my game and start moisturising like a grown up. I was stopped on a few occasions to be given samples and asked my regime etc… and then looked on with pity(?) when I said I just picked up something from the supermarket. Hey, at least I’m doing something, right?? Obviously not. But I guess I’m looking for something that’s not too cloying, light and also not too expensive to upkeep. This might be the product for me. 🙂
