There’s something about summertime that makes me want to condense every routine I have. Three-minute makeup? Sign me up. Two-step skincare? I’m all for it. All in all, I like to spend as much time as I can outdoors enjoying an NYC summer, and 10-step routines simply take away from that precious time.
I shortened my skincare regimen, but that doesn’t mean the steps are any less effective. The star ingredient of my new process is hyaluronic acid. It might sound intimidating, but hyaluronic acid is simply responsible for giving your skin a major boost of moisture and restoring radiance for a smoother complexion. It also reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, which are top of mind for me during the warmer months. SkinCeuticals—a cult favorite here at WWW—specializes in these multi-benefit HA serums that leave your skin feeling hydrated and nourished, so I took the liberty of highlighting the brand’s best sellers for you below. (The Hydrating B5 Gel is currently dominating my routine.) I even included cleanser, SPF, and more to help you curate a new and improved skincare lineup. Are you ready to see my picks? Just keep scrolling.
