Which moisturiser is right for you? – Gatineau Skincare

      Which moisturiser is right for you?

      Finding the right moisturiser can be really overwhelming at times especially with the vast choice on the shelves. A moisturiser is the cornerstone of any skincare regime and such an important weapon in your beauty arsenal regardless of skin type -I am willing to guess it is a staple in most of our daily routines.

      Although your skin is pretty good at taking care of itself, things like pollution and sun exposure can compromise the skin barrier leaving it exposed allowing essential moisture to escape. A moisturiser supports the skin in number of different ways - the first is to create a protective barrier against harmful aggressors, the second is to lock in all those important ingredients you are putting on your skin on a daily basis and the third is to seal in moisture! And although our skin does make its own moisturisers, these hydrating substances deplete as we age hence why skin becomes a lot drier with each decade!  Think of a moisturiser as wearing a waterproof jacket for your skin!


      There are a lot of moisturisers that go beyond the call of moisturising and barrier repair duty (they are what I like to call designer waterproof jackets!) as they have been carefully curated with specific active ingredients to offer extra skin-boosting effects and provide superior results for different skin types.

      When it comes to finding the right moisturiser for your skin type there is a lot to consider and going on skin type alone isn’t always enough. Consider the texture, key ingredients, seasonal changes, and what skin concern you most want to target.

      From endlessly hydrating, to smoothing and firming, boosting brightness, rebalancing, and tackling uneven skin tone, meet the sophisticated Gatineau ‘moisturiser armoire’ and find out which one can really earn its keep in your routine.
