Healthy and illuminated skin starts with effective skincare, and one of the crucial aspects in your radiance enhancing routine is moisture protection. You see, maintaining optimal skin hydration is essential for a radiant and youthful complexion. However, with countless products available, finding the perfect daily moisture protective can be overwhelming. So, read on as we map out your one-stop guide on how to choose your dream cream.

Now, some of you may be wondering what true benefits a moisture protective can offer, so before we delve into your perfect cream, lets look at the 5 key functions that your complexion will soon reap the rewards from.

Hydration: This one is key, protecting the outermost layer of the skin, it acts as a barrier whilst retaining moisture and protecting from daily aggressors.

Skin Barrier Protection: Containing ingredients that reinforce the skins barrier function, a healthy barrier is crucial for protecting the skin, whilst fighting against pollutants and harsh weather conditions.

Softening and Smoothing: Regular use of a moisturiser will soften and smoothen the skin, this thanks to its unique ability to promote cellular turnover, whilst improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, tone, and texture.

Preventing Irritation: When skin is dehydrated, it becomes prone to irritation and inflammation, ensuring the skin is adequately hydrated will assist in preventing discomfort, redness, and itching.

Balancing Oil Production: Contrary to common belief, even oily skin types benefit from using a moisturiser – with the right protective, balancing oil production and reducing the likelihood of clogged pores and acne.

Enhancing Skin Tone and Radiance: Well-hydrated skin tends to have a healthier and more radiant appearance, this thanks to a blend of antioxidants and vitamins.
