Skincare Series: Moisturisers

Moisturising the skin is the final step in a skincare routine. The role of a moisturiser is to help and prevent dry skin, protecting sensitive skin; as well as improving the appearance of skin tone and the texture of the skin. Also, some moisturisers may help to mask the skins imperfections.

Recommended Moisturisers for Your Skin Type

Preventing the skin becoming too dry or too oily
Its recommended that you buy a moisturiser that's light, water-based, as well as being a non-greasy formula.

Oily Skin Types
Its recommend that you purchase a moisturiser that has a heavier formula, as well as being oil based. 

Dry Skin Types
A lightweight, water-based moisturiser is ideal for people with dry skin. Also, it may be a good idea to look out for hydrating moisturisers; as this will help to give your skin a well earned drink.

Sensitive Skin Types
People with sensitive skin will need a moisturiser that contains natural ingredients such as camomile and aloe vera. But look out for moisturisers which contain any fragrances, essential oils and acids; as these won't be suitable for sensitive skin, as they will irritate the skin.
