Spotlight on moisturisers
Moisturiser should be an essential part of any skincare routine no matter what your skin type, as it keeps skin looking healthy, radiant and smooth and creates an ideal base for make-up. It is important to choose a moisturiser that is right for your skin type, to ensure your skin is getting the maximum benefits and to make sure your moisturiser is not actually having a detrimental effect on your skin.
Moisturisers for dry skin
It goes without saying that dry skin will always benefit from a moisturiser, to help combat the dullness, tightness and flakiness that can come with having dry skin. Moisturise your skin twice a day with an intensive moisturiser and use a dedicated night cream in the evening, as these are far richer than day variants (but they also absorb into the skin less readily, hence why they are best for night-time use).
The Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Hydrating Mango Face Cream is ideal for dry skin, with its powerful blend of mango and shea butters and five natural oils to nourish intensely and provide a protective emollient layer upon the skin. It is particularly effective at treating dryness, itchiness and skin damage.
Moisturisers for oily skin
It is a myth that oily skin doesn?t need moisturiser; conversely, if you try to strip the natural oils from your skin it will make your skin?s oil production go into overdrive to compensate for the loss. Just make sure you choose a moisturiser that is targeted towards the specific needs of oiliness, as these tend to contain lighter formulas that won?t overload your skin and will help control oil balance.
Look out for the addition of skin-caring ingredients that target issues associated with oiliness. For example, the gentle formula of the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Jojoba Day Moisturiser is infused with jojoba oil, which acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to dissolve excess sebum that can clog pores and cause breakouts.
Moisturisers for normal skin
If you have normal skin ? lucky you! However, don?t make the mistake of neglecting to moisturise, as this will ensure your skin has a radiant, healthy glow and provides the perfect base for make-up. Opt for a moisturiser such as the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Hydrating Mango Face Cream, which is ultra-caring while still retaining a light formula that isn?t too heavy on the skin.
Moisturisers for mature skin
As skin ages its moisture reserves start to deplete, while collagen and elastin production ? which are responsible for keeping your skin supple and plump ? begin to slow down, hence wrinkles and sagginess begin to occur. Therefore, a good moisturiser is essential to maintain the health and vitality of your skin.
Look for a moisturiser that targets the needs of older skin, such as the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Face Cream with Deep Line Complex, a rich, intensive formula that is loaded with antioxidants to fight against free radical damage.
