Moisturisers are essential for keeping your skin soft and supple, while the constant environmental factors like stress, pollution and tiredness make it dull and lacklustre.
Whether you're looking for a moisturiser for dry skin, moisturiser for oily skin or even for sensitive skin, there will be one perfectly tailored to your needs. Even if you're looking for an anti-ageing formula which doubles up as an intensive moisturiser or which contains that all-important SPF to cut down on the amount of bottles on your shelf.
Dry skin isn't just uncomfortable but it's a bad base for make-up, meaning it will look cakey and collect in patches, as well as have an ageing effect. Get into the habit of popping your face moisturiser on before your make-up in the morning and last thing at night, and get used to all-round better skin. If your complexion is needing a little help — maybe the aircon is drying it out or you've just spent a week in the sun, apply a serum before your moisturiser. If you're suffering from dry patches, rather than all over moisture loss, apply a barrier cream before bed until it clears up.
Although, we're all told to wear sun cream every day, whether you're on holiday or just going in to the office, it can feel like a bit too much to ask when you're rushing through your morning routine - which is where SPF moisturisers come in. Tinted moisturisers are also a total life - well, time - saver.
