Summer ’22 is hot, but glassy, hydrated-looking skin is even hotter! The dewy look is obviously in, but what’s harder to suss out is which ingredients will get your glow look going. This week, we’re breaking down some of our favorite hydrating skin care ingredients to help keep your skin plump and moisturized-looking while you hopefully beat the heat this summer.
Hydrating Hero: Superfood Blends
Things have changed since kindergarten: you can totally play with your food. Superfoods—think leafy greens like Kale and Spinach—are trending for your skincare routine because they’re antioxidant- and nutrient-rich, which can translate into a hydration factor for your skin. We love these clean, botanical ingredients at PÜR because they’re gentle enough for sensitive skin and help encourage a more radiant-looking appearance.
PÜR Favorite: Go with the Glow Niacinamide Drops
This summer is all about the “glow from within” look that starts with moisturized, hydrated skin. Adding Go with the Glow Niacinamide Drops to your 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer or Love Your Selfie Foundation can give your glow a little extra “oomph” with Niacinamide, Squalane, and Vitamin C to help even the appearance of skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A Superfood Blend of Lavender, Aloe, Kale, and Spinach helps give these mix-able, hydrating drops added moisture and a light, crisp scent.
PÜR Favorite: Miracle Mist Hydrating Spray
Summer is a paradox: so many fun events to wear makeup to, so little time before the heat turns you into a total puddle. Setting your glow with Miracle Mist can help it last a little longer, plus you can tote this hydrating mist with you for a little glow wherever you go! In our in-house perception study, 94% of participants loved using Miracle Mist throughout the day to give their skin an extra pick me up. Traditional wisdom is to set the look after it’s all done, but lately we’re loving layering Miracle Mist on top of moisturizer and under primer to help prevent creasing.
Hydrating Hero: PÜR’s Proprietary Ceretin Complex
The microbiome or skin barrier is the star of the skin care show these days, and for good reason! A healthy looking microbiome locks in hydration to help your skin maintain that plump, glowy look. One ingredient that helps keep your microbiome in good form? Ceramides. According to this great run-down on the ingredient over at Byrdie, ceramides are a moisturizing ingredient that can help rebuild and restore your skin barrier. PUR’s Proprietary Ceretin Complex is formulated with a Ceramide, along with an encapsulated blend of Retinol, Lactic Acid, and Shea Butter, to gently help promote healthy skin renewal while helping to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This gentle time-released formula can be used both day and night.
PÜR Favorite: Ceretin Serum Age-Defying Concentrate
How do we know our Ceretin Serum is an A + hydrator? This lightweight, triple action serum helps maintain skin’s moisture and acts as a gentle exfoliant with Alpha Hydroxy Acid to help clarify the appearance of skin as well. Natural ingredients like Goji Berries, and Apple, and Lentil Fruit Extracts help our Ceretin Serum pack a moisturizing punch for a more rejuvenated, hydrated-looking complexion.
With a pillowy texture and an innovative, water-breaking technology that deeply hydrates the skin, Cloud Cream is our summer skin dream come true for 2022. This 4-in-1 hydrator, soother, smoother, and primer provides a glowy looking base for your makeup, but it can also be worn all on its own to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, redness, fine lines, and wrinkles, and an uneven skin tone. Cloud Cream is formulated with PUR’s Proprietary Ceretin Complex, plus Green Tea to help address premature signs of aging, and Aloe to help reduce the appearance of redness. This high-powered multitasking moisturizer can help add some hydration to your morning or night skincare routine this summer and beyond!
Hydrating Hero: Hemp Seed Oil
At PUR, we love a multitasking ingredient. Hemp Seed Oil comes pretty close to doing it all: it’s rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that help skin retain its moisture, plus it helps soothes dry skin and can help balance oil production. Turns out the guy from your college dorm was sort of right—this IS a miracle plant!
PÜR Favorite: Mellow Eyes Hemp-Infused Eye Patches
Let’s linger for a minute on the ADORABLENESS of these hemp-infused, hydrogel green eye patches.
Seriously, we don’t think a soothing at-home spa day is complete without Mellow Eyes. Not only does the nutrient rich formula help address the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, it’s also bringing added hydration to your under-eye area that’s excellent prep for your concealer application. One package includes 30 pairs of these best selling beauties—grab yours to help brighten, smooth, and reduce the look of puffiness for summer ’22!
PÜR Favorite: Forever Soft Rejuvenating Lip Treatment
Don’t forget to dole out some of that sweet hydration to your lips this summer! This luxurious, botanical lip formula pampers your pout with a burst of moisture, conditioning dry lips for a plumper look and softer texture. It’s made with Hemp Seed Oil for moisture, but Forever Soft also includes Green Tea, Ginseng, and Vitamin B to help address signs of premature aging and rejuvenate the look of skin. Use the cooling metal ball tip applicator to massage moisture into your lips any time you’re feeling dry. Hydration, thy name is hemp!
