Day creams or night creams, we’re all about optimal hydration
“My skin is already oily!” or “Singapore’s so humid there’s no point in putting on moisturiser.”
Sounds familiar? But hold up, contrary to popular belief, moisturising is incredibly essential no matter your skin type or climate—and the ultimate key to getting healthier, clearer skin.
At The Moisturizers Co., they are firm believers in the importance of moisturising. So much that they went ahead and did a lot of intensive research, toiled over numerous solutions and ingredients, and finally created moisturisers that you can slather on day and/or night, and are suitable for oily skin, combination skin and dry skin types. In fact, we’ve got other products in the pipeline, so hold on tight for updates!
For now, let’s get right into this moisturising business.
Why is moisturising important?
Everyone wants to look youthful, and taking care of your skin is the easiest way to do so. Whether you have oily skin, combination skin or dry skin, the right moisturising method ensures your skin remains hydrated and supple, allows the easy absorption of serums and essences, and also keeps it blemish-free. This is why picking the right face moisturiser is vital—yes, your regular body lotion can’t simply be used on your face too.
I have sensitive skin that is easily irritated and some products don't sit well on my skin
Having sensitive skin may mean experiencing a lot of breakouts, blotchy skin, and even acne. However, instead of oily skin, you will usually find that you have underlying dryness instead. Use a gentle moisturiser like The Moisturizers Co. Ultra Moisturizing Repair Gel. It is the first moisturiser that The Moisturizers Co. has formulated that has such a strong focus on healing, repair, and regeneration. It contains Calendula, Chamomile, Cucumber, and Allantoin - ultra-soothing ingredients to calm irritated skin and provide instant relief for dry skin. Its lightweight, clear gel formula feels incredibly soothing on the skin and is easily absorbed without leaving any residue. The moisturiser is also fragrance-free and helps with anti-aging and fine lines, so you’re getting heaps of benefits with just one product!
I have oily skin/combination skin, and moisturisers just make me feel even more greasy
We get it—moisturising is one thing, but having your face turn into a slippery mess barely 10 minutes into your daily commute is not pretty. If you’re someone with oily skin or combination skin and live in a place with all-year summer, stay away from thick moisturizers that feel like a thick layer sitting on your skin and go for lightweight, breathable ones instead.
Gels are extremely recommended for their cool texture which helps the skin feel comfortable and instantly refreshed. The Moisturizers Co. Cell Regenerate Gel Cream with Mulberry and Squalane (which helps skin retain moisture) is our pick to stay hydrated sans the heaviness. This cream contains a slew of great benefits, and our favourites are these stars: Black Mulberry extracts that work to calm and soothe skin, Squalane, a botanical-derived nutrient that encourages cell turnover and collagen production, and Coenzyme Q10, which protects against sun damage and other environmental impurities.
If you have oily skin, experience frequent breakouts / enlarged and clogged pores, while also dealing with premature aging and fine lines concerns from regular usage of drying, oil-control skincare, try The Moisturizers Co. Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream with Niacinamide. It is a high efficacy milky-gel moisturiser that is extremely lightweight. It contains a careful blend of non-drying, pore-clearing exfoliants as well as, non-comedogenic emollients - Niacinamide, AHA, Wild Yam extracts, Witch Hazel and Ceramide to help you achieve clear, smooth, and supple complexion with reduced blemishes and refined pores. Or to put it simply, just look absolutely flawless!
I have dry skin that looks dull and aged - no matter what moisturizer I use
Having dry skin is the last thing someone would want, especially in a sweltering hot place that could easily cause a flaky and rough face. Save dehydrated, dry skin with a gift that’s ultra-nourishing.
The Moisturizers Co. Brightening Moisturizing Cream with Arbutin and Vitamins is a serum-infused product that is so rich, it basically melts into your skin and plumps it right up. We’re a fan of all the goodness this moisturiser has to offer—it’s packed with rich actives like the super ingredient Arbutin, which is loaded with brightening agents and prevents the formation of dark spots, as well as Vitamins A, C and E that work hand in hand to deeply moisturise, lighten and purify dry skin.
Okay, I see the benefits of moisturising. So how often should I do it to see results?
