We often get asked, “Are moisturizers important in skincare routines?” And the honest answer to that question is no. Just like mists and toners, moisturizers are skincare products that you can actually skip. Yup, we are never sugar-coating things here at Today’s Skin. We are here for the wellness of your skin in all its glory (and sometimes, in all its lowliness). But for everyone’s knowledge, there are still benefits in using a moisturizer.
- Moisturizers act as sealants especially when you use actives like ampoules and serums that are very potent. Using them as sealants can help these actives penetrate deeper into skin.
- Moisturizers can replace some primers. Some moisturizers with good consistency can help makeup look more natural and less cakey.
Ahead are 10 moisturizers for every skin type:
