Hey lovely people,
It feels good to be back on the blog. its been a hit minute. I have been so busy with mummy duties, my interior design business, and so much more. So it feels great to be able to update my skin care post today.
Because I have left you guys for so long, i want to start with a topic that your skins will thank you for: MOISTURISERS.
I have dealt with this topic in previous posts, but today will be a little bit different from previous posts because I will reveal the best types of moisturisers for different skin types.
The most important skincare step is ensuring hydration. Adding moisture to the skin helps maintain smoothness, firmness, softness and radiance.
"Moisturiser is the true fountain of youth" The right moisturiser will enhance the look, feel and health of the skin and can even help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
DRY SKIN. This skin type needs a heavier, oil based moisturiser that quickly and easily absorbs into the skin. For dry skin, oils are more effective than creams. you should look out for ingredients such as propylene glycol that keep the skin moist.
NORMAL SKIN. naturally has a healthy moisture balance. if you have a normal skin type, then you should use moisturisers that have light weight oils and water based moisturisers. Look out for ingredients such as acetyl alcohol, or silicone derived ingredients.
OILY & COMBINATION SKIN. Needs oil free, water based moisturisers. Moisturisers should be used sparingly if you have an oil based skin. Look for products formulated to prevent clogged pores labelled "noncomedogenic". Test moisturisers to ensure they leave a matte finish to help minimise shine and large pores.
SENSITIVE SKIN. opt for fragrance & dye free moisturisers that cater to sensitive skin types. Less is more if you have a sensitive skin.
MATURE SKIN. For older skin requires more moisture. Use nourishing oils, dense creams and balms. look for petroleum based moisturisers that contain ingredients such as lactic acid or hydroxy acids, which prevent dryness.
Particular moisturisers are needed for the eye area because the skin surrounding the eyes have smaller pores and thinner skin and is more sensitive. It is important to keep the eye area as hydrated as possible.
Here are samples of amazing moisturisers that you can try out.
