To look after your skin, you must keep it clean and moisturised. Therefore, it is essential to use a daily cleanser and moisturiser. As we are bombarded with images and ads telling us what products to buy, it makes choosing the right product very difficult.
Firstly, it is important to know what skin type you have so that you can choose your moisturiser accordingly. If you're not sure what skin type you have, there’s an easy test you can do at home to find out. Check it out here. Once you have figured this out you are ready to choose the right face moisturiser.
It is recommended to use the same line of products for your face wash and moisturiser if possible. Some good brands are Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, and Olay. These brands offer a range of products for all skin types.
Moisturisers need to be matched not only to your skin type but also to your specific requirements. For example, if you want to particularly focus on keeping wrinkles at bay, use an anti-wrinkle moisturiser.
Some people with oily or acne prone skin may wonder if they need a moisturiser at all. In short, yes, you do, your skin can benefit from it just as people with other skin types can, as long as you find the correct one.
There are moisturising options regarding natural ingredients too. You can try making your own moisturiser at home using milk, honey, coconut, or olive oil.
