5 Moisturizer Stand-Ins That Could Save Your Skin

5 Moisturizer Stand-Ins That Could Save Your Skin

It pays to get inventive if you want to keep your complexion healthy and hydrated during the summer. If your normal moisturizer just doesn’t do the trick when the weather heats up, you’ll love these fun products that help your skin get the hydration it needs!

1. LovelySkin LUXE Gentle Cream Cleanser

Keeping skin hydrated starts with the right cleanser, and LovelySkin LUXE Gentle Cream Cleanser is our top pick for removing makeup, oil and debris while soothing your complexion with olive oil and meadowfoam seed extract. This cleanser doesn’t strip the natural moisture barrier so your skin feels soft, refreshed and perfectly cleansed, not tight and dry.

2. jane iredale D2O Hydration Spray

Whenever your skin starts feeling dry, jane iredale D2O Hydration Spray is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. A light spritz delivers balancing and soothing natural extracts from chamomile, rosemary and ylang ylang flower along with a cool boost of moisture whenever you need it. Best of all, this light hydration spray also works to set your makeup for the perfect look that lasts all day.

3. patchology Hydrate FlashMasque

Sheet masks are the newest and easiest way to infuse powerful active ingredients to your skin, and patchology Hydrate FlashMasque Facial Sheets are our favorite. This once-a-week sheet mask provides intense hydration with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5 and essential amino acids. Most masks need to stay on your face about 20 minutes for best results, but patchology Hydrate FlashMasque’s unique design infuses your skin with its beneficial ingredients in just 5 minutes.

4. Eminence Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil

If you love your serum but wish it was more hydrating, you can add an extra boost of moisture and anti-aging benefits with Eminence Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil. This super lightweight, nourishing oil provides essential vitamins C and E to protect skin from free radical damage, and makes the perfect cocktail with any other serum or moisturizer to enhance your results. You can also use this oil by itself (under your favorite sunscreen, of course!) for a quick and easy routine on busy mornings.

With a Deep Sea Hydrating Complex of moisturizing botanicals and more than 20 ocean minerals, this liquid foundation offers sheer to medium coverage with a pore-minimizing finish that stands up to the longest summer days.
