Hydrate your body—from head to toe—with these ultra-moisturizing goodies.
A more humid climate, like ours here in the Philippines, is said to be less tough on skin. A little humidity can be good for keeping the skin soft and hydrated, unlike colder and dryer temperatures. Though constantly sweating might leave you forgetting to slather on a moisturizer, let’s not neglect all the aspects of our bodies just because we don’t feel or see any dryness. Here are our top beauty product picks for staying hydrated—from your hair to your feet!
