Introducing your hydration heroes

Cooler temperatures can often lead to lacklustre complexions as the air holds less moisture, while windy conditions strip the skin of essential oils, therefore, taking intentional steps towards hydrating the skin is as important as ever. Need reminding? Dehydration causes premature signs of ageing including fine lines, dullness and unwanted skin texture. Add these MOJEH-approved hydration heroes to your rotation for plump, youthful-looking skin, no matter the weather.
