With so many different creams, oils, lotions and gels in the skincare section, it can be hard to figure out which moisturiser is the best for you skin. Not all moisturisers are made equal, so we’ve put together a handy little guide to finding one that is tailored for you. Because like the unique little snowflake that you are, your skin is just as special.
Moisturiser should be your best friend if your skin is prone to dry patches and flaking. One of our favourites is Benefit’s Total Moisture Facial Cream for an instant hydration boost. The formula is packed with the goodness of mango butter and natural plant emollient, helping to create a moisture barrier and keep your skin soft all day.
Just because your skin’s oil production does a pretty good job of keeping things nice and slick up there, doesn’t mean you can skip out on moisturising. Hydration is essential to keep that oil in check, and an oil-free lotion is a good way to go. We love Kiehl’s Ultra Facial OIl-Free Lotion for it’s super light weight formula that your skin will happily absorb.
For all of those with the best (or sometimes the worst) of both worlds, a moisturiser that helps balance out your skin is essential. Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Combination Skin is perfect for absorbing oil around the T-zone while still providing moisture to where it is needed.
Acne Prone Skin
Soothe those spots, control that oil and banish dry patches with Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer. This specially formulated moisturiser relieves sensitivities caused by acne treatments while absorbing surface oil to keep those pores clear. It’s non-greasy, absorbs quickly and comes in a super handy little pump dispenser.
Strip back to the basics and only use moisturisers without all unnecessary extras. Simple’s Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser is specially designed to be gentle on skin and is free of any perfumes & colours that tend to cause irritation. Plus, it has UV filters to keep skin protected from those harsh rays and keeps skin moisturised for up to 12 hours.
