There’s nothing more satisfying than gulping down a glass of water on a hot, sunny day! Have you ever noticed how gorgeous your skin looks when you get your recommended dose of H2O? A tall glass of water is the solution to *all* of your woes and every celebrity swears by it too! But sometimes, your skin needs more than that. Come winter, and the change in temperature can lead to dry skin and hair. Go the extra mile and give your skin and hair a boost of hydration. Presenting team POPxo’s absolute favourite hydrating products!
Laneige is a Korean beauty brand and if there’s something we’ve all learnt, it is to never underestimate the power of K-Beauty! The water sleeping pack has become my absolute go-to sleepytime moisturiser. It’s an oil free, gel-based moisturiser that sinks into your skin instantly. As someone with combination skin, I hate the feeling of anything oily and slippery on my skin. This moisturiser has helped bring back that lost radiance and moisture and makes my skin look plump and so glowy! Another favourite from the brand is their lip sleeping mask. I swear by it! It is the only product that helps my perpetually chapped lips. - Nidhi Kavle, Senior Beauty Writer
This moisturiser is super light in texture and doesn’t feel too greasy. This is the one product you need to make sure your skin is well-hydrated all day long. Even oily skin needs a dose of moisture to keep your skin healthy. - Sonali Pawar, Editorial Coordinator
POPxo Recommends: The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet (Rs 1,295)
I’ve battled an oily scalp and dry hair ever since I can remember. And things only got worse when I decided to get highlights. The dryness and frizz in my hair were beyond manageable, I tried all possible hacks: hair spas, hot oil massages, egg and curd packs, et al. It was at this point, when a friend (whose hair texture was similar to mine) suggested that I give Kerastase products a try. The Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 Exceptional Nutrition Shampoo is my go-to product now. After every wash, my hair feels and looks extremely hydrated and healthy now. My search for the right hair product ends here! - Sakshi Budhraja, Junior Beauty Editor
POPxo Recommends: Kerastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1 Exceptional Nutrition Shampoo (Rs 2,250)
Considering I’ve always had acne since I was a teenager, thanks to my super oily skin, any moisturiser that works to regulate the sebum production and provide hydration is the best for me. This emulsion from Avene does exactly for my skin. There is no stickiness after application and my skin has that healthy glow all day long. I have to thank my dermatologist for recommending this amazing product! - Srishti Gupta, Senior Lifestyle Writer
POPxo Recommends: Avene Cleanance Mat Mattifying Emulsion (Rs 1,126)
I don’t know about you but all those matte formulas can sometimes really get to my lips. My lips were going flaky and honestly, the lipsticks were drying it out further. Then I picked up Burt’s Bees Lip Balm and thank god, there’s no looking back! Not only am I a big fan of the beeswax that keeps my pout moisturised but the light tinge that keeps me going too! - Manavi Siddhanti, Beauty Editor
POPxo Recommends: Burt’s Bees Lip Balm (Rs 1,599)
A secret I never thought I’ll share but here I am! The nip’ in the air gets to my skin and it becomes flaky dry. I use Biotique’s Sandalwood Ultra Soothing Face Cream and it’s all I need under my make-up! It gives my skin a subtle sheen and protects it from the sun, ‘coz it has SPF 50! This product is a multi-tasker and I’m never it letting go! It’s a must-have for all dry-skin beauties. - Rhea Guliani, Social Media Coordinator
POPxo Recommends: Biotique Bio Sandalwood Ultra Soothing Face Cream SPF 50 UVA/UVB Sunscreen (Rs 220)
Winter is coming and so is the season of chapped lips. I have lips which are always dry, be it winters or summers. I have a bad habit of constantly biting my lips. Baby lips is the one lip balm that is with me, no matter where I go. It really has helped me get rid of chapped/dry lips and because it adds a hint of colour to your lips it’s perfect when you’re not in the mood for lipstick. - Manasvini Paul, Video Marketer
POPxo Recommends: Maybelline Baby Lips (Rs 175)
Some people can’t do without coffee in the morning, I, on the other hand, can’t do without this. I can go on and on about the rich formula of this body lotion, but what enchants me (I’m not even exaggerating!) most about this product is the fragrance. It’s so nice and fresh, and leaves my skin feeling super soft and me feeling extremely happy! - Manvi Malhotra, Senior Wedding Writer
POPxo Recommends: Forest Essentials Ultra Rich Body Lotion With Iced Pomegranate And Fresh Kerala Lime (Rs 1,495)
I’m in love with this product! Each time I apply this cream, my skin instantly feels baby soft and smooth. Infused with cocoa and petroleum jelly, this skincare product is perfect for dull and dry skin. After using this non-greasy cream, I don’t think I can ever go back to using any other product. - Sharon Alphonso, Beauty Writer
POPxo Recommends: Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Spray Moisturiser (Rs 380 )
I swear by this lip balm — you will always find it in my bag. Thanks to this lip balm, my lips are hydrated and moisturised. I love how it always leaves my lips looking glossy and soft. After continuous use, I noticed that my lips have come way pinker than they used to be. The smell the is enchanting and lingers on for 5-6 hours after applying it. - Vatsala Vats, Brand Content Writer
