Skincare Tip #2 – Moisturise

Using a moisturiser as part of your skincare routine, whatever your skin type is, is a must.  A moisturiser will help to hydrate and smoothen the appearance of your skin as well as provide protection from damage.  The type of moisturiser you choose will depend on a number of things including your skin type and your age.

However, everyone should use a day cream with an SPF to help prevent the effects of sun exposure, even in winter, because as long as it is light there are UV rays coming through the atmosphere to your skin.  Personally, I’m lucky I have a normal skin type which, apart from that time of the month, doesn’t get oily or dry.  At the moment, I love the Anew Reversalist Complete Renewal Day Cream.  There are other Avon products which I am looking forward to trying, when my current pot of cream has finished, like the new Distillery Shade the Day Cream or the Avon True Nutra Effects Radiance Tinted Moisturiser.

For night time use, you should enhance your “beauty sleep” by using a moisturiser which is going to assist your body to restore and repair you skin while you sleep.  As with your day cream, there are lots of different night creams to choose from depending on your skin type, budget and basically what you like the feel of on your skin.  Again, I love the Anew products and am currently using Anew Reversalist Complete Renewal Night Cream.  I also have the new Distillery Sleep Potion Night Cream waiting to be tried when I finish my current pot of Anew Reversalist.

Do you moisturise every morning and evening?  Do you use separate creams for morning and night or do you use the same for both?  Do you use a day cream with sun protection included?  I’m interested, let me know.
