It is a common misconception that only dry skin needs to be moisturised: moisturisers are, in fact, a necessity in any skincare routine, no matter what your skin type.
They are important to fight dryness, sun damage, skin ageing, and weakened skin barriers, which are almost all problems that you could face, even if you have oily to combination skin..
Did you also know that moisturisers can be categorised by your skin type? There’re more intensive ones if you already naturally have dry skin, and ones that are more light-weight for those who have problems with oil production.
Check out the best moisturisers to use for your skin type in Singapore!
