Moisturiser is an essential pillar of our beauty routines. Choosing the right one can mean the difference between skin that looks plumper than a hotel pillow and skin that looks greasy

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all moisturiser. Our complexions are governed by varying levels of sebum and lipids. Then there are different skin types – dry, oily and sensitive – but remember nobody neatly fits into just one. Our skin is more nuanced thanks to seasonal and hormonal shifts. Regardless, one product remains your best ally: moisturiser. Applied morning and night, it keeps the top layer of skin supple and protects it from the constant pummelling it receives from UV rays, pollution, and other aggressors. But to have a deep-seated appreciation for this product you need to find the right moisturiser for your skin.
