9 Ways to Work Even More Hydration Into Your Daily Routine
Finding a quality, hard-working moisturizer that agrees with your skin type is key for keeping your skin hydrated, but it's not the only product that can get the job done. If your goal is to give your skin an even bigger boost of hydration, consider expanding your daily skin-care (and even makeup!) routine with essences, mists, serums, masks, and more.
That doesn't mean you'll be standing in front of the mirror every night for 20 minutes, either; you can use these products sporadically throughout the day or week. For example, try keeping a face mist on your desk and give your skin a spritz when it's feeling parched, or let a weekly hydrating mask serve as a moment of self-care. Get started by shopping the makeup and skin-care buys ahead.
Vanity Planet Facial Steamer
In short, facial steamers, like the Vanity Planet Facial Steamer ($50), help your skin absorb your skin-care products more easily. After giving your skin a thorough cleanse, treat your skin to a little facial steaming session prior to applying your serums, moisturizers, and oils.

Thanks to ceramides and hyaluronic acid, the e.l.f. Holy Hydration! Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm ($10) works to support the skin's moisture barrier and deliver hydration to the skin — all while melting away makeup.
W3ll People Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer SPF 30
After you apply your skin-care products, start your makeup routine with a tinted moisturizer, like the W3ll People Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer SPF 30 ($30), that supplies a natural, lightweight veil of coverage and helps to lock in hydration.
Vaseline Original Unscented Petroleum Jelly
Ready to give the K-Beauty slugging trend a try? Stock your medicine cabinet with Vaseline Original Unscented Petroleum Jelly ($2) and apply it as the last step in your skin-care routine to lock in hydration overnight.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask
Before you climb into bed and drift off to sleep, apply the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask ($38, originally $50). This two-step mask is designed to restore your skin's hydration levels overnight. The first step is a cooling gel, which is made with hyaluronic acid and Damask rose extract to plump up the skin and hydrate. The second portion of the jar, a cream, is designed to lock all that moisture in where it belongs.
Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30
SPF always belongs in your routine. If you're trying to tend to dry, dehydrated skin, choose one with added moisturizing factors like the Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30).
