Desperately in the hunt for the perfect moisturiser but you are in a dilemma on which brands would suit your skin type and you are unsure of the ingredients on the product. You tried so many brands and nothing seems to work? #topfacemoisturiser #moisturiser

What is a moisturiser?

A moisturiser comes as a cream-based, gel-based, water-gel based, water-cream based, there are so many varieties to suit the skin preference. The benefit of a moisturiser is it acts as a shield to protect your outer layer skin from bad pollution, poor environmental climate changes, and even debris in the air. Moisturiser will help lock in the moisture and allow the skin to stay hydrated and seal the pores from any harmful residues.

Why is moisturiser so important?

Due to seasonal climate changes, the skin tends to feel dry and even dehydrated very often so it is necessary to keep the moisture in the skin. The purpose of a moisturiser is to seal the pore appearance and give the hydration our skin deserves. In an easy term, it is like having 8 glasses of water for your face but in a tub or tube!

You can apply these moisturiser during day and night, but there are some who prefer to apply moisturiser in the day because it feels lighter on the skin. For the night routine, some prefer to apply face oil because it is more concentrated and works better to restore the skin cells especially while we are sleeping. There is no right or wrong but only based on what suits your preference.
