We all know that hydration is key for health – our bodies are made up mostly of water, so we need to drink those 8 glasses per day to keep our systems running smoothly. It’s no surprise then that water is also an important ingredient when it comes to beauty. Some say not to buy beauty products that list water as the first ingredient, out of fear of being ripped off by the product being watered down (and in some cases this fear is legit). But there are so many products out there that will give you great results by the fact that the water in it is actually serving a purpose. Our skin needs water to stay plump and smooth, so why wouldn’t you want to put products on your skin that will help give it the hydration it needs? Here are 5 water-based beauty products we love for you to try.
We love foundations that offer medium coverage without clogging our pores and Stila Stay All Day Foundation ($52, relaunching later this month at Shoppers Drug Mart) offers exactly that. The formula is super creamy, blendable and oil-free, which allows your skin to breathe while covering any pesky blemishes. Plus, this favourite formula is available in the new push-pump format that dispenses the right amount of foundation so you get your money’s worth.
