how to 
max out 
on moisture

There’s more to a solid hydration routine than just moisturizer. Here’s how Tina Craig, the queen of glow, stays dewy no matter what.

We’re going to cut to the chase here: Your face will look a lot better if you hydrate it properly. By virtue of its dewy consistency, a face cream may seem like the magic moisture bullet, but it turns out, a moisturizer alone (especially in cold weather, on boozy nights, and amidst constant stress) does not a plump, glowy complexion make. Plus, there’s more to maximizing its benefits than simply slathering it on, says Tina Craig, Instagram sensation and co-founder of U Beauty, a science-driven, minimalist-chic skin care brand. Here, the blogger-turned-entrepreneur shows us how a few easy tweaks—and products—can help us get the skin we’ve always dreamed of.
