Moisturiser is the backbone of a good skincare routine but there are a lot of myths, ruining the reputation of this hero.
In this article, we will debunk three moisturiser myths that you need to stop believing now.
Myth #1 Oily skin doesn’t need a moisturiser
Nope, oily skin needs moisture just as much as dry skin. If your skin is extremely oily, it could be because your skin is too dry and overly producing sebum to compensate for the moisture loss. It’s always a good idea to use a gel or water based cream for oily skin, so that it doesn’t feel too thick and gives your skin the nourishment it needs.
Myth #2 You should use a different moisturiser for your face and body
Not really. If a moisturiser is good for your face, it most certainly is good for the entire body as well and vice versa. People usually don’t like to use body creams and lotions on face as they are thicker, but that is a matter of personal preference.
Myth #3 You only need to use moisturiser when your skin is dry
You don’t have to wait until your skin gets dry to wear a moisturiser. In fact, you can get the most out of your products by applying them to damp skin.
