These Are the Top Skincare Products for Fall
Start your skin hydration journey early.
by : Kenisha Alexander- Sep 16th, 2022
We all know the tell-tale signs that summer is over: an increased chill in the air, leaves start browning and the most obvious sign? Your skin will start to dry out faster than you can say pumpkin spice latte. While keeping your skin hydrated should be a year long endeavour, we tend to kick things into overdrive a little bit once your skin’s demand for hydration becomes one you can no longer ignore.
Hydrating your skin from the inside out, really is one of the best mottos you can live by. So don’t forget to increase your water intake, reduce caffeine consumption where possible and get plenty of sleep to help boost your skin’s natural moisture. However, to really ensure long lasting moisture and give your skin a lot of the added benefits that can help it flourish, having a quality skincare regime with moisture promoting ingredients is key. With so much to choose from we’ve rounded up some of the best hydrating skincare products available so your skin will be the most hydrated it’s ever been.
For Lightweight, Dependable Hydration
You know that saying don’t mess with a good thing? That doesn’t apply here. Ever since it emerged onto the Canadian skincare market in 2015, Laneige has become a dominating authority in hydration. So their recently released Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream Moisturizer is an obvious choice. It’s the new and improved version to their beloved Water Bank Moisturiser and now contains Blue Hyaluronic Acid to absorb into skin faster and provide up to 100 hours of hydration.
For The Intense Hydration Enthusiast
Plump, supple and glowy? Yeah, that’s your skin we’re talking about, at least after using Farmacy’s Honey Halo Ultra-Hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer it will be. Formulated with intense hydration A-Listers like shea butter, ceramide and even fig fruit extract, this honey halo cream really is heaven sent. Incorporating it into your daily skin routine promises to leave skin hydrated, firm and with visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Not to mention its title ingredients Buckwheat Honey with Propolis and Royal Jelly Blend are known for their soothing properties making it perfect for those fast approaching bitterly cold days (sorry).
For Quick Skin-Plumping
If the name Moisture Bomb didn’t give it away, the way your skin feels after just 15 minutes of this mask surely will. This Garnier Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Replumping Sheet Mask is brimming with ingredients like castor oil and pomegranate fruit extract, that while uncommon in skincare are hydrating powerhouses in their own right. They are rich enough to provide deep hydration but mild enough for use on sensitive skin. Bonus points for the cooling sensation that the mask provides that will definitely make the experience very spa-like all for under five dollars.
For Hype-Worthy Hydration
There’s so much to say and so little time, but in a nutshell Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask really is THAT girl. Not only has it been reformulated to incorporate more soothing ingredients like vitamin B5 and chamomile, but one of the leading causes of irritation in skincare (fragrance) has been graciously removed. Don’t worry all the things that you know and love about this mask haven’t left, like our trusty friends hyaluronic acid, glycerin and niacinamide who all provide firming, hydration and texture improving benefits.
For A Dreamy Boost
There are a lot of reasons to love Youth To The People – they’re committed to sustainable packaging, their formulas are founded based on highly innovative science and they have one of the best hydrating face masks currently on the market. Their Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask truly is the brand’s star pupil. Using this overnight face mask will have you waking up the next morning with skin that is not only plump and hydrated but also brighter thanks to the inclusion of Vitamin C.
For a Gentle Hydrating Cleanse
Incorporating the luxury and elegance of Dutch Tulips into a moisturising treatment? Sign us up. The Royal Tulip Cleansing Jelly from Bloom Effects is as pretty as it is practical. The blushed hued jelly transforms into an oil when massaged into the skin, and rids the skin of dirt and impurities without leaving it feeling stripped and dry. Its star ingredient, Tulipa Hybrid Meristem Cell Extract is packed with amino acids, antioxidants and is a naturally amazing humectant which means it retains moisture like it’s their day job. It’s also completely fragrance, paraben and sulphate free, and will leave skin as glowly and fresh as the tulips themselves.
For Spa in a jar
You know that blinding glow you get post facial, where you can’t possibly imagine your skin getting any softer, plumper or more moisturised? Well now you can. While it may seem a little counterproductive to exfoliate your skin in an Iconic Canadian spa Miraj Hammam’s Enzyme Face Polish is available for purchase online meaning that you can take that post facial glow home with you forever- or at least until you need to restock again.
For a Nostalgic Hydrating Fave
Neutrogena truly is one of the OGs when it comes to the hydration game – and for good reason. Their Hydro Boost Gel Cream has the perfect blend of the absorption qualities of a gel and lasting hydration power of a cream. Not to mention it’s also a fraction of the price of similar calibre creams on the market. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin help to lock in moisture without clogging your pores.
