Tips & Tricks: Moisturisation

Try these tips before you show that expensive moisturiser the bin… 

Hydrating routines, as prescribed by most cosmetic companies are great if you are able to follow them regularly. But if a particular moisturiser is not working for you, try figuring out the problem before trashing it. Consider the following tips, which could help you maximize the power of your moisturizer.

  • Keep the cleansing gentle:

Squeaky clean may sound nice; in reality is anything but. Before you apply your moisturiser, make sure that you use a cleanser that doesn’t end up drying out your skin even more. You could try using a cleanser with a pH of 5.5, the same pH as your skin. After you cleanse, instead of vigorously drying your face, gently pat or blot it dry with a soft towel to avoid any abrasions.

  • Sun Protect: 

Either use a moisturiser with a sunscreen or apply one on top of your moisturiser. Using a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher has many possible long-term health benefits for your skin, including preventing wrinkles and skin cancer. The sun’s rays also dry out your skin so adding SPF protects the skin further from dehydration.

  • Switch to gels:

Don’t avoid “hydration” just because you have blemishes. Acne-prone skin needs moisture, just like any other skin type. If you have acne, just be careful to choose a moisturiser that’s non-comedogenic and oil-free. Gels are great to try as they hydrate without giving you an oily feel and any further spots.

  • Be sure of allergens:

Test out new products before slathering on generously. Even if it’s a moisturiser and the product’s label says that it is hypoallergenic, it still might contain something which you’re allergic to. Test it on your forearm first.
