If you want your skin to look healthy and glowing, then moisturising is one step that you should never skip. No matter the season, no matter your skin type, you HAVE to moisturise every day, twice a day without fail! But did you know that using the wrong moisturiser for your skin type could actually worsen your skin? Well fret not, as we have made choosing the right moisturiser a breeze for you.

Read on to find out the perfect moisturiser for your specific skin type...

Oily skin
 

Oily skin

Excessive sebum production is the hallmark of oily skin and can leave you constantly reaching for blotting papers and powder makeup. If you think that using a moisturiser is only going to make your skin more oily, then it’s not so. Using the right kind of moisturiser can actually help reduce oil. We recommend the Pond’s Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel. It has an 80% water-based formula that is non-oily and lightweight. Enriched with Vitamin E, this moisturiser gives your face an unmistakable glow.

Dry skin
 

Dry skin

If you have dry skin, chances are that moisturisers already form a part of your skincare routine. But it is very important to use a nourishing moisturiser, especially during winters. The right kind of moisturiser will prevent dry, tight, parched and flaky skin. Quench your thirsty skin by using the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-in-Crème moisturiser. It is infused with legendary Moroccan Argan oil that provides your skin with superior nourishment. This crème moisturiser is extremely rich and nourishing, yet does not feel greasy on the skin. It is specially designed to nourish and revitalise your skin.

Combination skin
 

Combination skin

Finding the right kind of moisturiser for combination skin type can be quite difficult. You’re perpetually confused between choosing one that helps get rid of those dry patches or the one that promises to mattify your skin. The answer is to opt for a lightweight moisturiser and concentrate it on the areas you need it most. You can try the Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion that has a feather-light formula, which hydrates along with reducing shine. The best part is that this moisturiser eliminates congestion, soothes the skin and intensely moisturises.

Normal skin
 

Normal skin

If you have normal skin, consider yourself really blessed. Normal skin type is usually characterised by few or no blemishes, no visible pores, an even and clear skin tone and no severe sensitivity. Pick a moisturiser that helps preserve the moisture content of the skin, fights free radicals and maintains the overall health of the skin. We love the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel for normal skin as it is infused with pure aloe vera extracts, has skin soothing properties, prevents damage from pollution and is extremely lightweight and non-sticky.

Sensitive skin
 

Sensitive skin

Picking a moisturiser for sensitive skin can often times turn out to be a series of hits and misses. Even one ingredient from the moisturiser can irritate your skin making it red, blotchy, itchy or swollen. If you have sensitive skin, always pick products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin. We highly recommend that you use the Simple Kind to Skin Protecting Light Moisturiser. It not only moisturises and nourishes the skin, but is also 100% free from any skin baddies, making it ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.
