Dry skin is my least favorite thing. It makes your makeup caky and weird. The skin flakes off and the texture just isn’t as smooth. It can also lead to premature aging in the form of lines, wrinkles and lack of plumpness.

One of the best things you can do for your skin is to keep it constantly hydrated. It’s logical, the more water you give your skin, the plumper it is. Think of your skin like a grape. What happens when that grape doesn’t receive water anymore? It shrivels up and turns into a prune. Bleh.

While visiting Dr. Barbara Sturm a few weeks ago, she talked to me about one of her favorite ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid: “It aids in storing water under your skin. It [Hyaluronic Acid] takes in so much water, which of course is very important for hydration. I put it in every product. I think people are afraid of it because they hear ‘acid’ but it’s not an aggressive acid.”
