Skimping on moisturiser due to the muggy weather? If you are nodding vigorously at the screen just about now — news flash, this resolve can prove to be counterproductive for your skin. To set the record straight (once and for all)- a moisturiser in your regimen is non-negotiable, regardless of the season or the skin type. And we are bringing you a curation of the 5 best moisturisers from beloved global brands, courtesy of Nykaa’s Cross-Border Store. But first, an overview of how moisturisers fortify your skincare. Scroll ahead!

Why Should You Moisturise?

Moisturisation locks ample water into the skin, indispensable to administering a healthy microbiome.

Incorporating a potent formulation in your tailored skincare ensures the skin not drying out due to constant sun exposure this season. Concerns such as irritation, redness and flakiness of the skin-all stemming from extreme parchedness are also at bay with a moisturiser. If you grapple with naturally dry skin, we recommend creams featuring emollients that help seal the water content. Formulas infused with hydrophilic agents like glycerine, hyaluronic acid, lactic acid and more to oversee a healthy dose of hydration are also advisable.

People with an oily face — water retention attained due to moisturisation curbs excessive sebum production. For the uninitiated, the lack of moisture content in the skin prompts the sebaceous glands to overcompensate by churning copious amounts of oil. So, stop preemptively skipping over moisturising in your skincare and turn to lightweight, non-comedogenic formulas imbued with humectants.

Folks with sensitive skin or pertinent skin conditions should elect formats brimming with soothing agents like aloe, honey, tea tree and more. However, it is always recommended to seek a professional’s view before committing to a new offering

Now that we are well-versed with the role of a moisturiser in your skincare, the 5 ultimate summer SKUs you should shop from the Cross-Border Store.
