Moisturisers are an essential part of every skincare routine, but there’s no one size fits all when it comes to picking the right moisturiser for your skin. Simply choosing a random moisturiser off the shelf or solely based on its cute packaging will do no good for your skin. If you want to level up your skin game, you need to pick a moisturiser that's specifically formulated for your skin type. And guess what, you don’t even need to spend big bucks on a good moisturiser. We’ve collated a list of budget moisturisers for every skin type, so you don’t have to! Take a look...
 

Oily skin

Oily skin

Contrary to popular belief, girls with oily skin need to use a moisturiser too. But instead of picking a thick, creamy formula, choose a lightweight, gel-based moisturiser that will nourish your skin without clogging the pores. Plus, it’ll get absorbed quickly and won’t leave the skin feeling greasy.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin

If you have sensitive skin, it’s essential to pay attention to the ingredients you apply on your face. Picking a moisturiser formulated with harsh ingredients like alcohol, artificial colour, parabens, etc. can easily irritate your skin and cause redness and itchiness. Thus, look for a gentle moisturiser that contains skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin E, glycerine, pro-vitamin B5 as they work wonders for sensitive skin.

Mature skin

Mature skin

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and signs of ageing such as wrinkles, and fine lines start showing up. Thus, apart from using an anti-ageing cream in your nighttime routine, it’s also essential to use a daily moisturiser that contains antioxidants to boost collagen production and improve the skin’s elasticity.

Dull skin

Dull skin

Skin that does not receive enough nourishment appears dry, dull and mature. Environmental aggressors like pollution and UV rays are also responsible for making the skin look dull and lacklustre. Your best bet is to look for an anti-pollution moisturiser that is packed with nourishing goodness to improve your skin tone and texture and keep it protected from external aggressors.

Dry skin

Dry skin

Dry skin is dehydrated skin. Look out for products that do not contain alcohol as it can further dry out your skin. Instead, pick a thick, creamy moisturiser that is packed with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, aloe vera, shea butter, glycerin, collodial oatmeal or vitamin B to provide your parched skin with some serious hydration.
