There’s nothing quite so critical for healthy, visibly radiant skin as moisture, and yet, proper hydration gets woefully overlooked, especially considering the amount of grief we put our faces through. To pay your skin the attention it deserves (and so often craves), we tapped our Founder and Creative Director Sarah Abbasi for her clean, hydrating skincare picks to make being more mindful of your largest organ easy.
Tata Harper’s cult-classic Hyaluronic Mask smells like heavenly wildflowers and adds a feeling of luxury to even a simple weekday skin routine. Suddenly I’m in the garden of a Provencal villa, strolling through blooms. (In reality:I’m in my pajamas, letting my puppy Pluto outside.)
Jao Brand’s all-star Goe Oil is your next Holy Grail item. I think of this as a magic potion, made up of 28 plant, fruit and flower oils and butters. It absorbs quickly and is light enough for summer in the city while being moisturizing enough for a harsh East Coast winter.
Snakes aren’t the only ones who need to shed to be their best selves — we do, too. Dry brushing your skin with Goop’s G.Tox Dry Brush not only helps dead skin slough off (gross, but letting it stay on is grosser), but it also increases blood flow all across your body, helping circulation. It literally gives you a glow. Try it!
Beauty Chef Hydration no topical product in the world can help your skin if you’re not giving it love from the inside out. This means water, water, water — yes, this is your reminder to drink a glass of water — as well as being wary of dehydrating drinks like alcohol and coffee. (Coffee, I can’t live without either — just drink two glasses of water per every cup of coffee and call it good.) For the extra boost, Hydration by Beauty Chef is a probiotic concentrate promoting health from the gut to the skin.
