6 must-have things that act as your skincare saviour

You would think that all types of moisturizers are the same, but that’s not the case. Not every moisturizer is suitable for your skin type, which is why you need to first determine your skin type, whether it is oily, dry or combination. Then, based on your skin type, you can choose a moisturizer that will work wonders on your skin.

Skincare Routine

With our given hacks, you can choose a suitable moisturizer for your skin type. 

1. Consider your skin type:

Before choosing a random moisturizer, figure out your skin type. Do you have oily skin prone to acne or dry, flaky skin, normal skin, or combination skin? These questions determine which moisturizer you should pick as different products are formulated for different skin types.

2. Texture:

The texture of a moisturizer is related to your skin type. Light, non-greasy moisturizer is suitable for normal and oily skin, while heavy creamy moisturizer is perfect for dry skin. 

3. Scent:

It’s not wise to choose the moisturizer which smells the best. If you have oily skin prone to acne, opt for a fragrant-free moisturizer.

4. SPF:

A moisturizer must have an SPF, which will protect your skin from harmful sun rays. That is also in case you forget to apply sunblock before stepping out.

5. Read labels:

Look for moisturizers that are labelled “allergy tested” and “non-comedogenic” (less likely to clog pores). While these labels won’t guarantee to protect your skin from irritation, it’s a solid point for most people.

Keeping these points into consideration, you can choose a perfect moisturizer for your beautiful skin.

While a moisturizer is a must for your skincare routine, there are other steps to follow when it comes to achieving healthy skin, such as:


A cleanser should be the first step to your skincare regime. Wash your face with a cleanser that not only cleans your skin and makes it supple it also ensures not stripping your skin off its natural oils. This deep cleansing product is a must-have, especially if you have oily skin.

2. Toner:

A toner can be used after washing your face with a cleanser. It tones your skin, giving you a balanced look. Rosewater toners are also an option on days when you’re out and want to achieve a fresh look instantly.

3. Eye cream:

If you’ve been complaining about dark circles and puffy eyes since forever, you need a good eye cream. Take a dollop of eye cream on your finger and gently dab it under your eyes before sleeping.

4. Spot treatment cream:

Say goodbye to dark spots on your face with a spot treatment cream that you can apply twice a day.

5. Vitamin C serum:

To get a fresh, rejuvenating look every morning, apply vitamin C serum before going to bed. It is safe for most skin types. It is hydrating, brightening, helps reduce redness, evens out your skin tone and even helps fade the dark spots over time. 

Follow these five steps to a skincare routine and finish off with a suitable moisturizer to lock in the hydration.

    I had no idea that there are so many steps in a skincare routine. I should start pampering my skin as it has become so dull & rough during the winter season. I usually use a heavy moisturiser in winters & a light one during summers.
