Happy Birthday, Cancer!
With summer in full swing—your birthday month is sure to be full of sun-soaked days, fun and flirty outfits, and plenty of social events (it is your birthday after all!). Symbolized by the brave crab, Cancer has a tough exterior but is actually highly emotional, sympathetic, and supportive of others. In other words—you put up a strong front, but really you’re a total softy on the inside, Cancer.
While you love spending quality time with family and friends, a packed social calendar can leave you feeling like you need to recharge. Since Cancer is ruled by the element water, we’re giving you everything you need to nourish, treat, and moisturize your skin. Read on for our favorite skin-saving hydration solutions.
When it comes to a daily moisturizer, we look for solutions that offer long lasting results. For hydration that lasts all day, we love Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream. Like a tall glass of water for your skin, this enzyme-infused face cream glides on leaving skin soft and supple. Exfoliating papain works to refine and smooth—so skin tone appears more even. Hyaluronic acid works to keep moisture locked in for up to 24 hours. Yep, you read that right—24 hours!
After all the birthday celebrations, treat your skin to something truly indulgent. A mask can deliver a powerful dose of hydration, restoring nourishment and radiance. Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Modeling Mask is unlike any other mask we’ve ever tried. The gel + powder mask goes on thick delivering a potent blend of hyaluronic acid and marine algae to restore skin’s lustre in a matter of minutes. Even more satisfying—this ‘modeling’ mask peels off in one, big rubber-like piece.
Nothing feels better at the end of a long day than washing away our makeup—not to mention dirt and grime. Many cleansers (read: most cleansers) strip away skins natural oils leaving your face feeling tight and even irritated. Luckily, OMOROVICZA Hydra Melting Cleanser gently removes impurities while delivering optimal hydration. The gel cleanser transforms into a milky lather to sweep away stubborn makeup. Vitamin A, B, and C rejuvenate and nourish skin while sage essential oil and roman chamomile work to purify. It’s a clean slate for your skin—only better.
