How do you moisturise your face?
After washing your face with a cleanser of your choice, apply a face moisturiser to retain hydration and nourish the skin. Choose the moisturiser most suited to your skin’s needs and apply to the face in gentle sweeping motions until all the product is absorbed. Moisturiser is often the last step in your skin care routine in the evening but should be followed with a protective SPF during the day. For added benefit, try a moisturiser that contains SPF to protect your skin while keeping it moisturised. These two-in-one products save you a step in the morning. Moisturising your face is crucial to ensure your skin stays healthy, hydrated, and plump. It is also an essential part of having perfect skin, and it’s one of the simplest as well!
How often should you moisturise your face?
It is usually recommended to moisturise your face twice a day, every day. Once in the morning, and once during the night —ideally, after washing your face. Even if you have oily skin, it is still important to moisturise daily, and it’s simply a matter of choosing the right products for you. During the day, most people opt for a lightweight moisturiser that absorbs quickly to effectively hydrate without residue. At night, go ahead and use a richer night cream such as Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment
or Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream, which will often have corrective qualities to regenerate and repair skin.
What is the difference between a face cream and facial moisturiser?
Both facial moisturisers and face creams are formulated to deliver effective hydration to the outer layer of your skin. A moisturiser often has a lighter, more fluid formula, where a face cream is thicker and richer, and often possess a higher concentration of oils. Moisturiser’s lightweight formula is ideal for application before makeup. In comparison to moisturiser, face cream are generally formulas for those with dehydrated or dry skin types, or for use in the evening in combination with targeted ingredients. This can include skin concerns such as pigmentation, dehydrated skin, or anti-aging ingredients that you might not find in your regular, multipurpose moisturisers.
What is the best facial moisturiser or face cream for your skin type?
The best moisturiser or face cream for you is one that targets your specific needs. Everyone has a different skin type, textures, and concerns. For those with dry skin, choose a rich formula that will deliver lasting hydration, with a still lightweight formula, such as the Ultra Facial Cream (https://www.kiehls.com.au/category/moisturisers/ultra-facial-cream/622.html). If your skin is oily, you should still use a moisturiser, just opt for a lightweight oil-free moisturiser, such as the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream
. If your skin is prone to flaking or sensitivity, try Kiehl’s
Centella Cica Cream
, designed to repair the skin’s protective moisture barrier as it hydrates. For those with mature, aging skin and consider choosing anti-aging face creams that contain skincare ingredients designed to target loss of elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles, such as,
Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream
to improve the skin’s resilience and impart a youthful-looking vitality. Learn more about how to choose the best moisturiser for your skin type.
