I am truly honored to have the chance to collaborate with Moroccanoil to share with you what keeps me going and glowing these days. A little backstory. I got introduced to this brand a year or so ago by a good friend of mine in Berlin, Germany and needless to say; it was such an experience that left a beautiful impression on me.
Moroccanoil is more than just the gold standard of skin care with its antioxidant-rich argan oil-infused hair and body products. The brand also shares its passion for empowering women across the globe through Moroccanoil INSPIRED BY WOMEN™ by creating moments to lead an inspired life and what it means to become an inspiration.
Working from home has never felt right, but it also means that I am susceptible to temperature fluctuation all the time and during the colder months, I bundle myself up like a burrito whenever I can. Our heating system is not as reliable as I’d like it to be that there are times that my office would feel like a walk-in fridge. No kidding.
Winter can be such a drag not only to our moods but our skin and hair as well. It can wreck havoc if we don’t put more emphasis on our day to night beauty regime. For someone who has a very busy or active lifestyle, having a skin care routine makes it easier for you to take care of yourself without neglecting other responsibilities.
I have to admit, slathering lotion, butter, or oil all over my body has always felt like a chore but apparently, not when the products tick the right boxes. When your routine consists of something you love, you don’t find it mundane anymore. Instead, you look forward to it. Like how I love spritzing Moroccanoil Dry Body Oil after taking a nice shower because it feels and smells like an exotic Mediterranean holiday for my skin.
So here’s a sum up of my day-to-night routine:
What I make sure to keep handy… apart from my lip balm?
Hand cream, of course! I’m sure I’m not the only one who suffer from extreme dryness in the winter. And to keep the first signs of aging at bay, I need a hand cream that I can trust and ensures that my hands are moisturized and getting all the nourishment they deserve. You’ll get to indulge your skin with the goodness of powerful ingredients such as argan oil, avocado, cocoa, shea, and mango butter in this tube.
In need of an extra hydration boost? Turn this into a super hand cream with 2-3 drops of Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil. We love this combo as a night time treatment, especially for my husband whose hands are drier than mine.
Note: Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil is one multi-tasker skin care product that you can use to condition not just your hair, but your face, nails (no more dry cuticles) and body.
Bath or shower?
Most evenings, I go for the latter, but it doesn’t mean I don’t pamper myself while I’m at it. The trick is to use products that explode in a beautiful scent as I cleanse the day’s stresses away. Moroccanoil’s delicately scented products are so distinctive that I’ll recognize the smell right off the bat — it’s unique and memorable.
I’ve been reaching for Moroccanoil’s sulfate-free Cleansing Bar in the morning for an energizing experience after my intense workout. At night, I gravitate towards Moroccanoil Shower Milk because it smells just as good as the mild body bar soap while it hydrates my whole body as I lather away.
Oil or butter: which one is better?
When it comes to adding the finishing touches after showering or bathing, you can never go wrong with either Moroccanoil’s Body Butter or Dry Body Oil. After a long day, there’s no better way than getting a mini massage, and Dry Body Oil is perfect for this job. I love applying this after taking a long, hot shower to relax my body and mind since it leaves my skin not only soft but silky. The weightless formula means it absorbs quickly without any greasiness and soothes any dry areas.
The Body Butter, on the other hand, is more like a daytime favorite of mine. Does your skin feel and look parched halfway through the day? By all means, butter away! It melts on skin contact almost instantly and delivers ultimate hydration especially on the usual dry spots like my elbows and knee areas.
It is no surprise why this brand has evolved into an iconic beauty brand in such a short span of time. Once you get to experience Moroccanoil products, there is no turning back. It’s just healthy and gorgeous-looking skin and hair moving forward.
