If there’s anything Korean dramas have taught us about skincare, it’s the importance of keeping your skin supple and hydrated all day long (because you still want to look great even while you’re crying your heart out!). In Korea, a good skincare routine is all about the 24/7 hydration, and this is why moisturisers are so important. Other than keeping dry skin at bay, what are some other benefits of moisturising your skin?
One way to prevent wrinkles and other signs of accelerated ageing is to add moisturisers to your skincare routine. Many studies have proven that moisturising daily can delay wrinkles and help your skin retain that youthful glow.
One of our best selling moisturiser at Nudie Glow is the Make Prem Safe Me. Relief Moisture Cream 12 that contains only 12 ingredients.
Helps treat acne
Contrary to popular belief, moisturisers can actually treat acne because they maintain the skin’s protective barrier against irritants and bacteria. Try a soothing moisturiser such as COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream, which can treat redness and inflammation caused by acne while helping heal breakouts faster.
Treats dehydrated skin
Dehydrated skin can be caused by the weather, an unhealthy diet, or even acne treatments. And believe it or not, oily skin can get dehydrated too! The best moisturiser to treat dehydrated skin is one that is light and leaves no greasy residue, such as the popular COSRX Oil-Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion.
Multitasking products are all the rage now. Choosing an SPF with moisturising benefits such as Kicho Ultra Moisturising Sun Cream is a great way keep your skin moisturised while fighting off harmful effects of UV rays at the same time.
Makes your makeup look flawless
You know what’s a horror story? Foundation that clings to your dry patches and seep into fine lines. To avoid this, make sure your skin is well-moisturised before applying any makeup!
For best results, moisturisers are normally used at the end of the skincare routine to “seal in” all the other products you have put on your skin. The general rule is: a rich, creamy moisturiser is great for dry skin, while oilier skin should opt for a more lightweight, water-based moisturiser. It might take a few trial and errors, but after you’ve found the right one, you’ll see how moisturiser will be your best friend for healthier, glowing skin!
I agree with this tips 100%! I wish people were more aware of why it’s so important to moisturise and how damaged our skin becomes after makeup, sun and pollution. It’s that little bit of luxury we can give back to our skin.
