6 Water-Infused Beauty Products We Love

It’s no secret that good old H20 is abundant in health benefits, but did you know that the same goes for water-infused beauty products? “To meet the demand of women who want well-hydrated skin, beauty brands are creating products that focus on deep hydration by packing moisture into the dermis in the form of water-based products. They are formulated to infuse skin with hydration without disrupting the moisture barrier,” says Alicia Yoon, CEO of Peach and Lily.

These beauty products will replenish and moisturize when your skin and hair crave it most.

Who doesn’t love a beauty product that does the work while you snooze? When skin is feeling particularly parched, apply a layer of this mask after cleansing. Rinse off in the morning and wake up to smoother, softer skin.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, $19

This daily moisturizer goes on like a quick-absorbing gel but has the lasting hydration of a cream. Oil-free and non-comedogenic, Hydro Boost works for all skin types but wins raves particularly from customers who have oily or sensitive skin and tend to break out.

Moreover, brands such as Origins recycle all empty containers from any brand free of charge, helping to reduce the product packaging that can potentially overflow landfills. Other brands, like MAC, have services like its Back to MAC program that allow customers to swap six empty MAC containers for a new lipstick tube. Learn more here.
