Moisturisers are an essential and basic part of any skincare routine. They help to keep skin hydrated, nourished and protected, ensuring you are left with skin that looks and feels healthy.
Moisturisers can also help with a variety of other skin issues and concerns depending on the type of moisturiser and what it is designed to assist with. With so many different types of moisturisers available on the market today, it’s important to find one that works for your specific skin type and addresses any issues or needs your skin may have.
Do I Actually Need to Moisturise?
We all know the basics of what moisturiser supposedly does and how it is meant to help our skin, but a lot of people still wonder if it is truly necessary in a day-to-day routine. Moisturisers are an important part of any skincare regimen as they help to hydrate the skin as well as assist in maintaining the skin's natural protective barrier and keep dryness, wrinkles and fine lines at bay whilst helping with any underlying skin concerns.
Moisturising is one of the most common steps in a skincare routine, and for many moisturising is often their whole routine. Moisturisers are great all-round products that not only hydrate and repair skin but help protect it from further contaminates such as dirt, grease or make-up.
The strength, effect and purpose of a moisturiser depend a lot on the ingredients, and it’s intended result. A good moisturiser will contain natural ingredients that will work towards helping your skin with no harsh or counterproductive ingredients.
Does It Matter Which Moisturiser I Use?
You may have just assumed that moisturiser was moisturiser, and the different types didn’t make much of a difference in the end, however that couldn’t be further from the truth.
From the different forms they can take to the wide range of ingredients, most moisturisers are designed with a specific outcome or solution in mind. Every moisturiser is designed with a purpose in mind, that ranges from simply hydrating and protecting to helping with oily or blemish prone skin or assisting with sensitive skin issues. If your moisturiser has been leaving you with oily, red or irritated skin, then it may be worth shopping around and discovering what works best for your skin.
By using natural and organic ingredients when possible you will help give your skin the treatment it deserves. Some of the ingredients we use in our moisturising products include a range of Peptides from Coconut to Moringa, which help to protect the skin’s collagen fibres and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well hydrating and soothing the skin. We also use Hyaluronic Acid, which is a molecule with a gel like consistency which exists naturally in our bodies. Hyaluronic Acid is mainly known for its hydrating qualities, but can also help to plump fine lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin.
There are many natural and organic ingredients that will help you with your skin care goals and assist in soothing and healing any skin issues you may have. It just takes finding the right product to suit you.

Improving Your Skincare Routine
Having a well-balanced and effective skincare routine doesn’t necessarily require a 10 step daily routine with more products than you can count. It can be as simple or as complex as you want or need it too, the main goal should always be the health and wellbeing of your skin.
Your skincare routine should reflect what your skin wants and needs and should evolve with your skin and change as it does. Just because something works now, it does not necessarily mean that it will always work. Being aware of your skin and how it changes in response to time, weather and your health is an important part of caring for your skin.
