The Best Moisturiser for Every Skin Type

Sure, it's not the flashiest of skincare steps, but land upon one of the very best moisturisers and your skin will soon be transformed for the better. It's the one product that can make your skin feel plump, comforted, cosseted even, all in a matter of seconds. And as the most futuristic of face creams contain all manner of active ingredients (think: retinol, vitamin C, the list goes on...) to help target your specific concerns, finding the best moisturiser for you depends largely on your skin type. Shall we show you the ropes?

Best for: Dry Skin

Sunday Riley ICE Ceramide Moisturising Cream, £60

The best thing you can do for dry skin is to work on strengthening its barrier function and for that you need ceramides. They act like a kind of dermatological mortar, sealing in the gaps between skin cells to stop the good stuff (moisture) from getting out and the bad stuff (pollution) from getting in. Sunday Riley ICE Ceramide Moisturising Cream, £60 provides more than your daily dose, bringing back lost skin bounce and resilience.

Best for: Oily Skin

Dr Barbara Sturm Face Cream Light, £130

It might seem counterintuitive to ply oily skin with extra moisture, but trust the process: the right moisturiser will trick the skin into thinking it needn’t make so much extra oil itself. For that you’ll need something fairly light, like Dr Barbara Sturm Face Cream Light, £130. It sinks in fast, restocking skin’s lipid supplies in the process, without exacerbating top-level shine.

Best for: Mature Skin

Zelens 3T Complex Anti-Ageing Cream, £95

This moisturiser from high-end skincare brand Zelens, is just the thing for skin that’s lacking firmness and density. It uses collagen-supporting ursolic acid to improve elasticity as well as algae and herbal oils to drench the uppermost layers of skin in hydration. Expect skin to look smoother at first application, and for the results to only improve as the weeks go by.

Best for: Tired-Looking Skin

Augustinus Bader The Cream, £135

When you’re lacking sleep, your skin is the first place to show it, manifesting in lost radiance, crepe-y skin texture and a slightly grey tint. And for that, Augustinus Bader The Cream, £135 is the moisturiser for the job. Based in ground-breaking stem cell science, it encourages the skin to work harder to turnover cells, a process that in turn reinstates skin brightness, fades fine lines and makes skin appear the image of health.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare B3Adaptive SuperFoods Stress Repair Face Cream, £73 is a formula you won’t need to worry about.

Best for: Dehydrated Skin

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Barrier Repair Moisturiser, £35

Dehydrated skin is that which lacks moisture, and will gladly slurp up any glycerin or squalane you send its way. Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Barrier Repair Moisturiser, £35 contains both, as well as an ultra gentle dose of retinol to help improve cell turnover and bring the younger, dewier skin cells to the surface.
