What moisturiser is best for my skin type?

Hydrated, healthy skin has a glow that we all strive to achieve. Moisturiser is undoubtedly one of the essential steps in your skincare routine to get there!

Not only can a good moisturiser hydrate your skin, but it can also help address many different skin concerns. It can repair the skin, help to lighten dark spots, it can help control oil production & mattify, and help improve the appearance of fine lines.

However, the key to finding the best moisturiser is choosing one that addresses your concerns but also suits your skin & lifestyle.

So we're breaking down our most popular moisturisers and explaining why they are our best sellers!

LETS LOOK AT WHAT EACH SKIN CONCERN NEEDS FROM A MOISTURISER

Dry Skins - Need nourishing, and lots of oil-based ingredients that will put back into the skin what it is lacking, which is oil.

Dehydrated Skins - Dehydrated skins are lacking water, so it needs ingredients that help replace lost moisture. All skin types can be dehydrated.

Oily Skins - Need moisturisers that will help mop up excess oil while hydrating the skin with moisture to keep it balanced.

Sensitive Skins - Need lots of calming and protecting ingredients to help repair & strengthen the skin's barrier and allow it to function correctly in protecting the skin.

Acne Skins - Needs moisturise to prevent the skin from becoming dehydrated as, when this happens, the skin will produce even more oil to combat what is being stripped off the surface. We also need anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial ingredients in a moisturiser for acne-prone skins.
