The most hydrating beauty products

Are you feeling depleted from a long, hot summer? Here are some old and new classics guaranteed to make you shine like new from tip to toe.

Face Serum Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum £70 from Murad

This new serum combats signs of stress and hydrates at the same time. And it’s in a fab pink bottle.


Face Mask: Kielh’s Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask £36 from Kiehls

One of the serious benefits of a facemask is that it pretty much ensures you down tools for period of time. This one includes all-important moisture to plump up your face. With the added bonus, you’ll scare the kids/neighbours/delivery man.


Hair: Nutri Plenish shampoo £25 from Aveda

Just the thing for dry ends and giving you that end-of-summer boost. Even good on not so thick hair.

Legs: Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Scrub £25 from REN Skincare

How a scrub can be also a moisturiser is something of a miracle. But your legs are smooth and silky after this classic product.


Body Moisturiser: Embryolisse Lait-Creme Fluide, £21.60 from Feel Unique

A cult product (since the 1950s), this cream quickly absorbs into the skin.


Handwash: Restoring Hand Wash Lemon, Geranium & Clary Sage £18 from Jurlique

You can never have too many hand washes in the current climate. This is our latest obsession.


Hand Cream: Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm £21 from Aesop


Bath Salts: 100 Acres Peppermint and Fennel Bath Salts, £16 from Hundred Acres

These bath salts really do smell of the countryside. Cleanse and feel hydrated all in one.

Lip Balm: Houve Ruby lip balm, £8 from & Other Stories

Luxuriously hydrating with stunning subtle colour

Nails: Shea Nail and Cuticle Nourishing Oil, £14 from L’Occitane

For stronger nails try this nourishing brush
