4 New moisturisers to try on the thirstiest skin
Have you noticed how well your skin behaves depends on how much hydration it has? Dehydrated skin can cause issues like inflammation and breakouts. This is one of the reasons why moisturising is an important tenet of a beauty routine. Moisturising helps promote a healthier skin, especially after you've cleansed and stripped your face off the important stuff. The top layer of our skin needs to be at least 10 percent water in order to repair and maintain the barrier function of the skin. So to help your skin stay hydrated, try one of these new moisturisers:
