When it comes to your skin care regime, moisturising is highly essential for radiance and glow. Moisturisers hydrate the skin, which is vital for supple, healthy looking skin. Moisturising also ensures a barrier against internal and external damages- helping to prevent dryness, improve tone and texture, protect sensitive skin and reduce imperfections.
This post aims to reveal 5 top moisturisers that you should invest in, depending on your skin type, for that wonderful glow. Remember that moisturising is the 3rd step in your skin care routine. The 1st is to Cleanse, 2nd is to Tone, and 3rd is to Moisturise.

Great Tip: Moisturisers are more effective when you warm them up by rubbing a small amount on the tip of your inner palm before applying on your face. Learnt that from a Creme De La Mer Skin Care Specialist in Saks 5th Avenue.
If a product doesn't work, don't worry, keep trying till you get the best one, then stick to it! Remember, try to be loyal to particular brands that cater to your skin type.
Like I always say, consistency is the key to a flawless, glowing skin.
