Are you using the right kind of moisturiser for your skin type?

Picking a moisturiser seems like the easiest task on your beauty to-do list. But make no mistake, if you pick the wrong formula or ingredients for your skin type, it could actually make your skin woes worse. Choosing the right moisturiser doesn’t seem so easy now, does it?

Well, we are going to make it a breeze for you. Whether you have dry, oily or sensitive skin, here is a complete guide to finding the right moisturiser according to your skin type.


Dry skin

Normal skin

For dry skin types, moisturising is one skincare step you cannot afford to miss. Keep your skin pampered and nourished with a cream that provides deep and long-lasting moisture.  Look for hydrating ingredients and a smooth formula while picking a moisturiser for yourself.

Oily skin

Normal skin

It’s a no brainer that your skin needs a lightweight, non-oily moisturiser that doesn’t leave it feeling or looking greasy and oily. A gel formula works better for oily skin. Buy one that is non-comodegenic so it doesn’t clog your pores.

Combination skin

Normal skin

Since you’re dealing with a skin type that has both dry and oily zones, pick a moisturiser that works for both skin types. An oil-free, light moisturiser that provides a boost of hydration is your best bet to keep those dry patches and oily spots in check.

Sensitive skin

Normal skin

You have to be really careful with choosing any skincare products, especially your moisturiser. One wrong ingredient can leave you with a rash, allergy or breakout. So play safe and pick a moisturiser that is free of skin baddies and harsh chemicals, parabens, fragrance, soap and alcohol. Pick a moisturiser with a gentle formula that’s specifically made for sensitive skin types.

While picking a moisturiser for normal skin, figure out your skin concerns and find a product that targets your skin woe. Since your skin isn’t too dry or too oily, get a moisturiser that provides round-the-clock moisture and leaves your skin glowing and healthy.
