Thus, it is important to use moisturiser not only for face but also for body. Watch this video about what Dr. Joyce Lim says about the important role of the moisturiser for a healthy skin condition:

#1: Moisturise for soft skin

Moisturising will help you look and feel younger by giving you softer and hydrated skin. It locks in moisture to make sure your skin won't dry out throughout the day. Soft, moisturised skin also leads to youthful looking skin, wonderful for those looking to up their anti-ageing regimen.

#2: Moisturise with SPF

SPF is very important and a moisturiser that contains SPF is one of the best things ever. Use the right kind of moisturiser for your skin type that contains SPF 15 sunscreen or higher. It's all about finding the right formula that works on your skin.

#3: Pick a moisturiser for your skin type

Just a few basic reminders, if you have oily skin, don't buy a moisturiser for dry skin. The same principle applies to other skin types as well. To make it easier for you, there are moisturisers that are made for all skin types. They contain ingredients such as water, glycerin, and petrolatum that make it a good formula no matter your skin type.

The key to having great skin is a solid skincare regimen that takes into account healthy eating habits, an array of skincare products that work to combat your skin issues, and most importantly, a good skin cleansing routine that properly removes makeup, dirt, and bacteria from your face. 

So what is the most effective way to cleanse your skin? Here are 3 ways we've found that have worked wonders for us!


A Cleansing Brush

When it comes to getting rid of deep-seeded dirt, one of our favourite ways is to use a cleansing brush. We're currently loving Clinique's Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush for its soft yet firm bristles that are slightly tapered for a truly deep clean. It also provides gentle exfoliation which primes the face to better absorb skincare products post-wash.

This system is best used with Clinique's Foaming Sonic Soap--an oil-free, non-acnegenic cleanser that cushions your face against the cleansing brush, gently-yet-effortlessly removing all makeup residue, dirt, and bacteria. Best thing about it: its gentle formula of glycerin, sucrose, and caffeine--a combination that's great for preventing and soothing breakouts.

Double Cleansing

One of the main benefits of the Double Cleansing method is that you are assured that you've cleansed all the makeup and dirt from your face. This is best for days when you've worn heavy-duty, waterproof makeup. For this, you'd need a good oil-based cleanser such as Shu Uemura's range of cleansing oils.

With dry hands and face, rub the oil all over your face until all of your makeup has been dissolved. With a bit of water, gently emulsify the oil on your face. Rinse it off with warm water and follow it up with your go-to face wash.

Simple Wash & Tone

Sometimes, it is better to keep things simple. So in between Sonic Cleansing or Double Cleansing days, opt for a simple wash and tone routine. This regimen is also best for days when you've worn little to no makeup.

Pick a facial wash that is gentle on the skin, like Clinique's Mild Liquid Facial Soap and follow it up with a tried-and-tested toner such as Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Toner to clean and tighten your pores.
