Moisturising is the most important step of any skincare routine and there’s no denying that. It hydrates the skin and locks in the moisture making it soft and supple. Without it, your skin will be dull and dehydrated, and if misused, it could prevent any other skincare products from being properly absorbed into your skin. But while you have been stuck on your favourite moisturiser for years now, there is a great chance that you are doing it wrong. Here are all the moisturising MYTHS you need to instantly stop beliving


All moisturisers are the same

This myth has been followed for ages now. While dome moisturisers hydrate the skin, others are just responsible for locking in the moisture. You have to select what is best for you. For people who have dry skin can opt for a moisturiser that does not make the skin flakey. 

Applying moisturiser on dry skin

After cleansing the skin, a moisturiser is a must. But while it a must, it is important that you do not let the skin dry altogether. Apply the cream when the skin is damp so that it locks in the moisture while not letting the excess water evaporate.


You cannot apply moisturiser on oily skin

This is the biggest myth that people widely follow. People think that putting on moisturiser will only make the skin more oily. However, that is not the case. Sometimes, people’s skin needs the hydration and moisture, so when the skin does not get this from any creams will start producing natural oils which only makes the condition worse.

More moisturising is always good

While your skin needs hydration, applying moisturiser again and again will only result in clogged pores which later create acne. Good quality moisturisers are highly concentrated and are designed to be effective even when applied in small amounts. They work for the entire day and there’s no need to over--moisturise.


Moisturising should be the first thing after cleansing

As important as moisturising is, it important to follow a good skincare regimen that includes toning and serums after cleansing. Toning provides hydration while serums and oils penetrate in the skin. Then comes the moisturiser that provides a protective layer on the skin which makes any products applied later hard to penetrate inside. So it should be the last step in the routine.
