Whether you’re an avid applier or are a little more averse, moisturiser really is a must-have skincare product in every bathroom cabinet. While many of us will only reach for the moisturiser during the cold, dry winter months, those with drier complexions will benefit from using it daily year-round. But, whether you’re looking for a regular moisturiser or something to see you through autumn and winter, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
When it comes to moisturisers, the choices are vast. Lotions, creams, balms and innumerable ingredients make choosing a moisturiser trickier than it needs to be. In general, we recommend choosing a moisturiser that is fragrance-free, SLS-free and lightweight. Glycerin is a common ingredient in skincare products as it is a humectant that softens and smoothes the skin – we use glyceryl stearate in Pure Shave Moisturiser.
