If cold weather is wreaking havoc on your skin, test-drive this 2-minute, at-home trick for restoring hydration and leaving a spa-like glow. It’s like a trip to the esthetician sans the hit to the budget.
In winter, skin can become super fragile and dry thanks to indoor heat and fire places. In fact, it’s not unusual to wake up with ultra-parched, taut skin. Cleansing your face is the last thing on your mind. Instead of simply splashing with water, try this rad Konjac Sponge trick, a spa-like indulgence that revives skin so it feels refreshed, hydrated and renewed. (Same idea as immersing herbs or vegetables in water to bring them back to life, says our in-house beauty yoda). Here’s the how to:
- Thoroughly dampen sponge with warm or hot water.
- Massage skin in circular motions, sans cleanser, for 2 minutes.
- Rinse and glow.
For snowbirds and beach types who aren’t dealing with winter skin woes, try the same technique using cold water instead of hot.

There are countless reasons for using a replenishing skin mist — it creates a hydrated canvas for color, makes a fab finish for makeup and restores healthy-looking skin. Isn’t that enough?! Turns out, it’s not even close.
Elevated Hydration Mist is chock full of botanicals like calendula and chamomile to help soothe and calm, hyaluronic acid to help pump up and lock down moisture, and aloe vera to help condition and smooth, making each spray feel like a health shot for the skin. Not to mention, this blend of high-powered ingredients smells absolutely divine so it rejuvenates the senses, too. Mid-day pick-me-up, anyone?
Don’t take our word for it. (Yep, we did a study.) We asked 325 women to spritz to their heart’s content and after 4 weeks of use, their reports came in: 94% said skin felt more hydrated; 92% said skin looked more hydrated; 85% said they felt re-energized; and 83% felt more relaxed after use.
It’s like we always say, “Seeing is believing.”
