You’re a pro at mixing and matching your wardrobe, and you’re always doing (at least) 3 things at once. Shouldn’t your skin care work as hard as you do, too? Being able to do a lot with a little is particularly important while traveling, when space is tight and beauty emergencies are inevitable. Our favorite multi-tasker: Clinique Moisture Surge 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator, a soothing, oil-free gel-cream that’s loaded with a complex of aloe bioferment and hyaluronic acid to provide deep, long-lasting hydration. But this superhero hydrator does more than make your face look plump and extra glowy. You can also use it as a…
1. 5-Minute Moisturizing Mask
Here’s how easy it is to spa-on-the-go (even in a middle seat): Apply a generous amount of Clinique Moisture Surge to your entire face, then recline and relax. Tissue off. Your skin will look radiant and remain hydrated long after touchdown.
2. Cuticle Treatment
Caught off guard by how ragged your cuticles look? Tidy them up ASAP with a conditioning dose of Clinique Moisture Surge. Massage the moisturizer over each nail bed to soften and soothe any dry, rough cuticles.
3. Frizz Fighter
When your hair suddenly frizzes out and you have no hair serum on hand, rub a dime-sized amount of Clinique Moisture Surge onto your palms, and then run hands lightly over unruly areas. (Avoid your roots, which may end up looking too flat.)
4. Dewy Highlighter
Make your features stand out by strategically dabbing Clinique Moisture Surge along your cheekbones and brow bone. The hydration boost will create a luminous effect.
5. Dry Spot Soother
The sheer, gel formula is an ideal moisturizer for targeted hydration. Apply a small amount directly to any dry spots in need of serious hydration. You can even pat it right on top of your makeup.
6. Sheer Bronzer
The secret to natural looking bronzer? Mix a liquid bronzer, like Sun-Kissed Face Gelee Complexion Multitasker with Clinique Moisture Surge, and then blend it lightly all over your face. This will instantly give your complexion an all over, sun-kissed glow, without any telltale streaking or cakiness.
7. Delicious Skin Trend
Master the #glazeddonutskin trend, thanks to Moisture Surge’s dewy duo: Aloe Bioferment + HA Complex. First, exfoliate away dead skin cells to achieve a smooth base. Then prep skin with Clinique Moisture Surge, applying a thin layer to the face. This gives your skin a serious moisture boost and doubles as a makeup primer. Next, mix a small amount of face oil into your foundation or press a small amount of oil into your skin after foundation application. Layer highlighter on top of the high points of the face, and you’re good to glow.
8. Ashy Knees Fix
Don’t avoid wearing your favorite skirt just because your knees aren't ready to be revealed. Nix dryness by applying Clinique Moisture Surge, and spend a few minutes massaging it in for maximum absorption. (Remember, the drier your skin is, the harder it is for moisturizer to penetrate through it.) Presto! Knockout knees.
9. The Way to Say “I Dew”
Wedding festivities drawing near? Don’t forget your trusty wedding day essentials. Pack a handy bridal kit for primping fixes, including a mini multi-tasking Clinique Moisture Surge for all of the hydration hacks above.
