WHY MOISTURISER IS A MUST
Alright, lads, it's time to face the facts: skincare is not just some marketing gimmick aimed at people with too much time on their hands – it's a necessity. Yep, that's right. And the secret to healthy skin? Moisturiser, baby!
But why is moisturiser so essential to a balanced skincare routine? Well, let me break it down for you. Your skin is the largest organ in your body (yep, it's an organ), and it's constantly exposed to all sorts of harsh happenings - pollution, UV rays, chlorine, and even sweat. Any of these elements can lead to dryness, irritation, and premature aging. But when you moisturise, you create a barrier between your skin and the environment, helping your skin to stay hydrated and nourished.
Moisturiser can also help prevent breakouts and acne.
How, you ask? Well, I'll tell you. When your skin is too dry, it overproduces oil to compensate, which can clog pores and cause pimples. But when you moisturise regularly, you keep your skin balanced – reducing the risk of breakouts. Moisturiser can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture and tone. Is your skin looking a little dull these days? Moisturiser is the answer!
But do people with oily skin still need to moisturise?
One of the biggest misconceptions about skincare is that people with oily skin should avoid moisturising. Right? Wrong. Even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturise. Skipping moisturiser can actually make your skin produce even more oil as it tries to compensate for dryness after face washing (and yes, you do need to wash your face).
What to look for in a moisturiser.
Ingredients like glycerin and Rosehip Oil are crucial when looking for a moisturiser as they help to lock in moisture and protect the skin's natural barrier. Vitamin E is also a must. Super hydrating and full of antioxidants, Vitamin E helps strengthen the skin barrier, treat pigmentation, and fade acne scarring. Extra points for a moisturiser with no nasty chemicals, synthetic perfumes, silicones, or parabens!
For daytime use, it's a good idea to look for a moisturiser with a built-in SPF to protect your skin against sun damage. At night, use a moisturiser that focusses on hydration. You should also be washing your face morning and night before applying moisturiser.
