Listen to your mom (and all the skin experts in the world) and MOISTURISE.
Keeping your skin moisturised is the #1 rule of skincare and yes, this includes girls with an oily skin type too. Well-moisturised skin looks radiant and takes a few years from your face, believe us. Plus, makeup stays longer and looks better if you keep your skin hydrated and happy by moisturising it on the daily.
We are sure you take your moisturising routine seriously and have a dedicated day cream and night cream sitting in your beauty cabinet RN (pat yourself on the back for it). However, for an extra boost of hydration, you do need to stock up on a few other moisturising heroes too. Take a look at five such moisturising products you need to make space for in your skincare arsenal.
Cleansing is the first step of your skincare routine and your skin often loses its natural moisture in the process. Instead, use a moisturising face wash like the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser that helps retains moisture and doesn’t leave your skin feeling parched.
Aloe vera gel
If you don’t know what the mighty aloe vera gel can do to your skin, start using one and you’ll know. It is packed with moisturising properties and is excellent for sensitive and dry skin. Try the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel. This lightweight gel hydrates your skin and protects it from pollution all day.
A sheet mask
You don’t really need a reason to stock up on sheet masks, do you? Apart from the fact they are relaxing and fun, they are also extremely moisturising and stave off impurities and dirt off the face. Pamper your skin with the Simple Kind to Skin Rich Moisture Sheet Mask once a week for hydrated and happy skin.
Nourishing eye cream
Did you know the skin under your eyes is sensitive and thinner than the rest of your face? Use an eye cream on your tired and puffy eyes every day to keep them peepers moisturised. Dermalogica Total Eye Care will do the job and keep dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines around eyes at bay.
Neglecting your neck, hands and legs is the worst thing you’re doing to your skin. They need some TLC too and equal attention as your face. Slather Vaseline Cocoa Glow Moisturizing Cream on your body to get smooth and glowing skin from head to toe.
