Enjoy healthy mochi skin all summer and every season with Hada Labo
The hottest time of the year gives us fond memories of summer but also some uneven and dry skin, thanks to the sun-sational combo of harsh UV rays, salt, and chlorine. With the heat indices still high, the skin needs proper attention more than ever, and by that, we mean tweaking some things in our skin care routine to make it more suitable for our hot and humid tropical (year-round!) weather.
Sun exposure can contribute to sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and skin dryness. High humidity also leads to increased sebum production which can make oily skin more prone to breakouts, while dry skin can become flaky and rough. Harmful UV rays can also make fine lines and wrinkles more visible.
Staying in air-conditioned rooms, excessive sweating, dehydration, and even chlorine in swimming pools can dry out the skin’s natural moisture, making your current skin problems worse and making you look dull and tired.
As they always say this season, stay hydrated—and that’s true for your skin, too. If you find that your usual skincare products are too thick and rich for the tropical climate, it’s time to switch to light hydrating products like those from the Japanese cult skincare brand Now two.
One of its bestselling products is their face lotion that sells a bottle every five seconds in Japan. As the first step to fresh, youthful-looking mochi-mochi skin, Hada Labo face lotions are known for making skin soft, bouncy, velvety matte, and of course, well-hydrated and healthy even what kind of weather.
To keep the lotions light, they are all formulated without unnecessary additives, colorants, fragrances, and mineral oils that weigh the skin down. Instead, it retains only the most beneficial ingredients such as its star ingredient hyaluronic acid which is known for hydrating the skin by increasing its water content.
Gokujyun Hydrating Lotion is No. 1 Japanese face lotion perfect for daily use, especially if you have dry or normal skin. And it is now enhanced with five types of hyaluronic acid that deeply hydrates the skin, replenishes optimal moisture, creates a moisture-locking shield to prevent moisture loss, and improves the absorption of other skin care ingredients like your trusty sunscreen. This formula also contains the world’s first fermented hyaluronic acid which further improves how it locks moisture deep into the skin.
The line also has Gokujyun Hydrating Light Lotion with a light, non-greasy formula specifically made for oily or combination skin.
To revitalize the skin and bring it back to or keep it in a fresh, mochi-mochi condition, use the face lotion twice a day and apply it the Hada Labo way—by rubbing it into the skin after cleansing.
