Moisturiser is the foundation of every effective skincare routine. Which is why there are so many to choose from.
Day cream, night cream, serum, lotion, gel. So many options, but which ones actually work?
You try to read the labels, but you don’t really understand what half those ingredients are. Okay, maybe less than half.
To make an informed choice we need to understand what all those buzzwords and ingredients actually mean.
Here’s the 4 most important factors to look at, so you can choose a noticeably effective moisturiser.
1. A rich emollient
An emollient is used to soften and smooth the skin, to help reduce roughness and flakiness. Emollients prevent cracks by keeping the skin moist and flexible. These include ingredients such as plant oils, mineral oil, and cocoa butter. One of the most important elements in managing skin conditions is to keep the skin soft and supple by frequent and generous use of emollients.
2. Hyaluronic acids
Hyaluronic acid draws water to the skin and helps prevent moisture loss. For deep hydration it’s the ideal ingredient. Hyaluronic acid helps to encourage skin cell renewal, leaving skin looking refreshed and revitalised.
Dry, oily, sensitive or blemish-prone? No matter what your skin type, this ingredient will help refresh, hydrate and smooth.
3. Sun protection
The sun is responsible for so many signs of aging and worse yet, serious skin damage can lead to skin cancers. Protecting your face from the sun’s rays is a no brainer. An SPF of at least 15+ helps keep your skin safe and looking younger.
4. DNA anti aging enzymes
DNA repair enzymes work to protect and help reduce skin damage and aging. It goes straight to the source by directing anti-aging therapies at the primary target of sun damage.
