How do you use a face moisturiser?
A facial moisturiser is an essential skincare product in your routine and ensures your skin stays healthy, hydrated, and plump. Moisturiser should be applied after your cleanser, toner and facial serums. Choose the moisturiser or face cream most suited to your skin’s needs and apply it to the face in gentle sweeping motions until all the product is absorbed. Moisturiser is often the last step in your skincare routine in the evening but should be followed with a protective SPF during the day.
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 skincare for your oily skin. During the day, most people opt for a lightweight moisturiser cream that absorbs quickly to effectively hydrate without residue like the Ultra Facial Cream with Squalene. At night, go ahead and use a richer night cream such as Clearly Corrective Brightening & Smoothing Moisture Treatment which will often have corrective qualities to regenerate and repair skin.
What is the difference between a face cream and facial moisturiser?
Both skin moisturisers and face creams are formulated to deliver effective skin hydration to the outer layer of your skin. A moisturiser often has a lighter, more fluid formula, whereas a face cream is thicker and richer and often possesses a higher oil concentration. A skin moisturiser with a 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 (https://www.kiehls.com.au/skin-type/dry-skin/), or for use in the evening in combination with targeted ingredients for your skin concerns. This can include skin concerns such as pigmentation, dehydrated skin, or anti-aging ingredients that you might not find in your regular, multipurpose moisturiser.
What is the best moisturiser cream for your skin type?
The best face 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 with Squalene. 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 Sensitive 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 the Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Face Cream.
