There's no point in investing in skincare treatments that your skin doesn't need. Our skin responds better to active ingredients that it craves. Think nourishing for dry skin, firming for sagging skin, anti-wrinkle for older skin, brightening for age spots and mattifying for shiny skin. That said, all skin types need moisturising active ingredients! Moisturisers plump up skin tissue and leave the stratum corneum porous enough for active ingredients to penetrate the epidermal barrier. But there's no need to slather it on. A dollop's enough to moisturise your face and neck.
