Navigating skin care can be tricky, especially as a novice. There are so many different brands, types and formulas on the market it can be hard to know which is the moisturiser to use for your specific skin type. We’ve put together our top 6 picks for the best moisturisers on the market:
Look for moisturising creams that have a higher oil, water and wax content in order to replace the lack of natural oils and water in the skin. Dry skin is caused by lack of water in the skin and dehydration so make sure you’re looking for the correct moisturiser to combat this. It is also beneficial to drink more water, which will help rejuvenate the skin as well.
Our top picks for dry skin moisturizers:
NORMAL/ COMBINATION SKIN
This is the most common skin type and is characterised by some oily parts of the skin, and some dry parts of the skin. In order to find the right moisturiser for this combination skin type, it is important to get a product that can both hydrate the skin but without too much extra oil, wax or water content.
Our top picks for combination skin moisturizers:
Clinique Pep-Start Hydro Rush Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream
Characterised by excess oils and sebum on the skin’s surface which can lead to clogged pores and eventually acne. The best moisturisers to combat oily skin are those which are water-based (often gels) which will replenish the skin without sitting heavy and adding to the oil. It’s a myth that those with oily skin should not use a moisturiser, in-fact it is just as important to use one as if you had dry skin.
