Moisturize and make your scent last

Moisturize and make your scent last

Want to make your fragrance last longer? Drink your eight glasses of water daily and make sure to moisturize—religiously.


Dry or dehydrated skin is one of the main reasons a scent doesn’t last, says Danny Ventura, International Training Manager at Beauté Prestige Internationale. The oil in a fragrance is light and is quickly absorbed, he reminds us. “If skin is properly hydrated prior to applying a scent, then the fragrance will remain on the surface of the skin.”

Translation: You’ll smell better, longer.
