FIND THE BEST FACE MOISTURISER FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE
It helps to think of your skincare products as building blocks that work in unison to bring radiance and vitality to skin. One of the final steps in a skincare routine, facial moisturisers ‘seal’ the other products in.
A common component of skincare regimes, moisturisers are often thought of as hydrating tools alone. Our range of face moisturisers consider how individual skin types interact with moisture, and which skincare ingredients will help to achieve balanced hydration.
The benefits of moisturiser are experienced most when the formula speaks to the specific skin type. To discover the right hydrating moisturiser for your skin, read our helpful guide below. We inform on the components of moisturiser and discuss the best face moisturiser for dry and oily skin, anti-ageing moisturiser and more..
What is moisturiser?
Each skincare step should answer to a simple function. Moisturisers are oil or water-based liquids, which when applied to skin increase overall moisture levels and support the health of the skin barrier. Used as the final step in a skincare routine, and before SPF, a hydrating moisturiser can have thick or lightweight, oil or cream texture.
Our modern formulas contain efficacious ingredients like vitamins, botanical extracts and oils to nourish dry, sensitive, combination and oily skin types.
What does moisturiser do?
The hydrating and nourishing function of face moisturiser protects our skin barrier – the outermost layer of skin – which in turn protects us from daily stressors like pollution and UV rays. Moisturisers create a shield which locks in serums and keeps skin plump and bouncy through a hydrating infusion. When skin experiences dryness, dullness or sagginess, as well as sensitivity and sensitive-prone issues like facial redness, moisturisers are used to rebalance and improve skin.
Choosing face moisturiser for your skin type
When choosing a face moisturiser, think of the main issues you want to address. Does your skin tend to feel tight or uncomfortable in the morning, or dry and dull? Glowing skin can be achieved by using products which counteract the imbalances in skin. Whether an excess or underproduced amount of oil causes stress to your skin, our range of hydrating moisture can help to reinstate radiance.
To help you discover the right face moisturiser for your skin goals, we’ve broken down each skin type and the ingredients that provide optimal results. See below to find the most supportive moisturiser for dry skin, mature and more.
Moisturiser for sensitive skin
Sensitivity can appear on skin in different ways. Simply understood as skin prone to stress, sensitivity may result in sensations like redness, dryness, or flakiness.
Reinstate comfortability to skin with a face moisturiser that addresses the specific needs of sensitivity. Skin Rescuer, our moisturiser for sensitive skin, is formulated with natural extracts to help minimise the visible signs of stress in sensitive skin. Infused with chamomile extract, mannose, and rose gallica botanical extract to promote strength, our medium weight formula supports a healthy-looking complexion.
Moisturiser for pigmented skin
Pigmentation occurs through an increased production of melanin in skin, usually as a result of UV rays or hormonal changes. A natural and non-harmless occurrence, pigmented skin can still cause uneven complexions. Our moisturiser for pigmentation, Clearly Corrective Brightening And Smoothing Moisture Treatment uses Activated C (a derivative of brightening Vitamin C) and white birch. The gel textures visibly promotes an even complexion by reducing the appearance of discolouration and dark spots, whilst hydrating skin.
Moisturiser for oily and acne-prone skin
Oil free face moisturiser adapts to oily skin types best. Oiliness in skin results in shininess, blemishes and sometimes breakouts, as a result of an overproduction of sebum, skin’s natural oils. To reduce surface oil and maintain healthy hydration, apply a moisturiser for oily and acne-prone skin like Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel-Cream. Formulated with Imperata Cylindrica, this gel-cream provides a visibly balanced and healthier looking appearance.
Moisturiser for dry skin
Dry skin types can struggle to maintain moisture throughout the day, leading to tight, dull and dehydrated skin. To promote bounce and brightness, apply intensified moisture to skin. Ultra Facial Cream is our moisturiser for dry skin, that reduces trans-epidermal water loss through the infusion of Antarcticine®, squalane, and Glycerin. Textured with a fresh-sensation, our dry-skin moisturiser helps skin to feel hydrated and supple throughout the whole day.
Moisturiser for mature skin
An anti-ageing moisturiser can firm skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To find a moisturiser for wrinkles, look for ingredients that bring back bounce to skin from within Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, our moisturiser for mature skin, improves skin’s texture and provides glowing, youthful-looking skin through the inclusion of manuka honey and ginseng root. These ingredients strengthen skin for visible vitality.
Moisturiser for normal to combination skin
When skin experiences dry or oily areas, address this imbalance with a lightweight moisturiser that absorbs excess oil and rehydrates skin. The white clay-based Rare Earth Pore Minimising Lotion is our moisturiser for normal to combination skin, absorbing excess oil and refining skin’s texture. Our face lotion helps to minimise pores, encouraging evenness across skin.
