Something as simple as moisturising everyday can go a long way to making your skin looking and feeling healthy. Finding a moisturiser that suits your skin type is very beneficial. There are so many different types of moisturisers out in the market ranging from different brands to various prices. However, it can take some time and some trial and error to find a moisturiser that works best for you. But once you’ve found a moisturiser that you love, it’ll work wonders for your skin!
So you may be wondering what exactly are the benefits of moisturising?
1. Boosts hydration in your skin
2. Adds vitamins and nutrients to the skin
3. Prevents flaking and dullness
4. Creates a protective layer of moisture that lasts all day
Making moisturising part of your daily routine, first and foremost, keeps your skin hydrated. Hydrated skin means softer, more elastic and healthy looking skin. However, to get the full benefits of moisturising, you must apply it correctly. Applying your moisturiser correctly can help with anti-ageing. If you’re applying your moisturiser from top to bottom, it actually causes you to tug down on the skin which can eventually lead to sagging. Therefore, it is important to always apply from the bottom to top. It is also important to rub your moisturiser in gently especially around the eyes as they are sensitive.
It is important to pay attention to your skin’s specific needs. Whether you have oily, dry or combination skin, you will have to find a moisturiser that will suit your specific skin type. Those with dry skin may have to moisturise more often than those with oily skin.
Moisturisers can come in two different forms, liquid and cream. Liquid and creams that are rich are suited best for dry and mature skin. While liquid moisturiser that is water-based will suit those with oily skin.
