Before you freak out and say “What the heck is slugging?”. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have anything to do with actual slugs.

Slugging is when you apply Aquaphor to your whole face to finish off your nighttime skincare routine. After you have finished washing your face, putting on your favorite moisturizer, and any other products you may be using, the Aquaphor will set it in. Aquaphor significantly enhances the moisture going into your skin, and as a result, makes for a glowy and dewy look. Aquaphor also prevents dry & flakey skin, so it makes for the perfect winter accessory. If your nervous about applying Aquaphor to your face before going to bed… don’t be! Aquaphor doesn’t contain any ingredients that causes breakouts and is a noncomedogenic product. So, if you’re desperate to find that dewy look (especially in winter), try slugging!
