Without topped up moisture levels, the skin produces more oil, holds onto dead skin cells and can become sensitised.
A moisturiser balances your skin’s natural oil production, combats dryness, flakiness, and dehydration, and protects your external barrier against environmental stressors that can accelerate signs of premature skin ageing
DRY OR DEHYDRATED!?
Dry skin lacks OIL, this is a Skin TYPE just like OILY or COMBINATION is a SKIN TYPE
Dehydrated skin lacks WATER
Everyone can be dehydrated, even OILY skin types. Dehydrated skin typically looks dull and can show premature signs of ageing, like surface wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
CHOOSING A MOISTURISER…
What does your skin need? More hydration? More oil? Or a combination of both?
Do you want an SPF built in? These are great to reduce steps in a morning routine but then you need a different night cream.
Do you have any other Skin concerns? There are moisturisers designed to target concerns such as ageing, pigmentation and acne, they cost more but they have more benefits than just keeping the skin hydrated, the oils balanced and the barrier protected
