moisturise BEAUTY Moisturise morning and night to help retain your skin’s natural moisture and to provide a physical barrier against environmental pollutants. While you can use a single product, it is advisable to use a richer moisturiser at night as the skin absorbs products more effectively while you sleep, undisturbed by environmental factors such as the sun and wind. During the day, it is recommended to use a moisturiser with a sun protection factor. Which type of moisturiser suits you is personal – it’s worth getting samples to try them out. Your clinician can help you establish if you have dry, normal, combination or oily skin. If skin is dry, you want humectants and ingredients such as plumping lipids. For sensitive skin, look for anti-inflammatories. For combination or oily skin, you also want antiinflammatories as well as ingredients that prevent oil slicks from breaking out. There are also firming moisturisers to help with sagging tissues. Formulations vary from emulsions (water-based and better for oily skin) to dense creams (oil-based, better for dry skin). Make sure to protect your skin all year round and opt for moisturisers that include SPF. 1. 3. 2. 1. Sisley Ecological Compound 125ml, $295, 2. Medik8 Advanced Day Total 50ml, $119, 3.
