We are sup­posed to drink litres of wa­ter a day, but who has the time? And what if you pre­fer a nice cup of tea? I’ve been cheating my body’s mois­ture lev­els with drinks that con­tain some wa­ter and fa­cial oils, which seem to be do­ing the trick. I haven’t had a glass of wa­ter in about a year so some­thing’s ob­vi­ously work­ing, and if you sleep in air­con­di­tion­ing, th­ese silky fa­cial oils are a must to keep your skin hy­drated overnight. I ap­ply mine be­fore clean­ing my teeth, or even ear­lier, so as to let it sink in be­fore my head hits the pil­low. Many or­ganic oils sold in health food shops will do the trick as long as they aren’t fra­grant or es­sen­tial oils, but in gen­eral oils like co­conut, al­mond, grape­seed, jo­joba or ar­gan can be oily on the skin, while spe­cific fa­cial oils are dryer, and ab­sorbed much more quickly. So with the party sea­son in full swing, whether you drink the re­quired amount of wa­ter or not, boost your skin’s mois­ture con­tent with one of th­ese oils, and your skin will have a much bet­ter chance of sail­ing through the silly sea­son. IN­STANT MIR­A­CLE BOOSTER FROM MODELCO IS A DRYER SERUM THAT HY­DRATES WITH­OUT FEEL­ING GREASY, GREAT FOR OILIER SKIN TYPES, RRP $35, VISIT WWW.MODELCOCOS MET­ICS.COM
