Thank you to Philosophy, Ulta, and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
Every day I try my best to practice gratitude, unplug for a little while, and make time for self-care (even if it’s only once a week!). I’m always on the lookout for products that nourish my dry skin, and lately, I’ve been loving Philosophy’s Renewed Hope Collection, currently available for 30 percent off at Ulta. The name of the collection alone is a perfect reminder for this time. Even more importantly, though, the products give me the chance for a few relaxing moments of self-care each day.
A high-performing moisturizer is one of the most crucial parts of my skincare routine all year round. In the summer, I look for a formula that is hydrating, but lightweight. I immediately felt and saw a difference in my skin when I applied the Renewed Hope in a Jar Water Cream Hyaluronic Glow Moisturizer. It utilizes Philosophy’s hydra-glow complex, containing Norwegian glacial water, enhanced hyaluronic acid, and pineapple extract, to hydrate skin, smooth imperfections, and create a natural glow. It leaves skin perfectly primed and ready for makeup, so I can skip that step in my routine and get to work or play a little sooner.
Since I have learned over the years that exfoliation is one of the best ways to combat dry skin, I love using the Renewed Hope in a Jar Peeling Mousse. Just once or twice a week does the trick for me, scrubbing off dry skin build-up so that the Renewed Hope in a Jar Water Cream Hyaluronic Glow Moisturizer works more effectively. To take my skin to the next level, I have also been applying a few drops of Renewed Hope In A Jar Renewing Dew Concentrate daily. This powerhouse serum uses aloe vera, vitamin C, peptides, and jasmine extract to boosts hydration, reduce the look of fine lines, and add radiance. Either of these products would make a perfect addition to any skincare routine, but I especially love the way they all work together to achieve the best results.
