How to choose the right moisturiser

Moisturiser is one of the most important parts of your skincare routine. Keeping the skin nourished and moisturised, not only prevents the skin from becoming tight and dry; it’s integral for its long-term glow too. When skin cells are hydrated, their balance is preserved keeping the skin with a young look. Moisturiser is imperative to this, helping to reduce the development of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as protecting the skin from external aggressors. It can even help to replace the lost lipids and sebum within our skin as we age, keeping it plump and glowing.

However, one size of face moisturiser certainly doesn’t fit all; it’s important to use a formula that’s suited to your skin type. If you suffer from oily skin or breakouts, an incredibly rich formula is only likely to make things worse. Just as if you have chronically dry skin, inadequate nourishment will exaggerate dryness and discomfort. At NUXE we’ve created a number of extraordinary formulations which are tailored to your skin’s specific needs - find out which one you should be using with our guide.


For normal to dry skin: Crème fraîche® de beauté Moisturising Cream

Even normal skin can become easily dehydrated, tight and dull. If you have skin that’s neither dry or oily our signature Crème fraîche® de beauté moisturising cream is the perfect moisturiser

Our moisturising cream uses a powerful combination of plant milks and algae extract to provide 48hr-hydration and soothe the skin with a beautifully silky formula which soothes and nourishes the skin. Our high-tech algae extract has been proven to boost the hyaluronic acid production in the epidermis, providing the most intense hydration to your skin. It also protects skin from pollution which can cause further dehydration as well as premature skin ageing. Its 7 botanical milk ingredients (including Acacia Flower, Blonde Pea, Green Tea to name a few), work together to soften the skin and strengthen its protective barrier. 


For dry to very dry skin: Moisturising Cream Crème fraîche® de beauté - Dry Skin

A thick, nourishing moisturising cream is particularly important for dry skin types. Dehydrated and irritated skin see its protective barrier weakened, leaving the skin more vulnerable to water loss and the effects of pollution. 

Our rich moisturising cream Crème fraîche® de beauté for dry skin is a rich moisturiser which has been created to thoroughly hydrate even the driest of skin types. As well as the moisturising properties of algae extract and plant milks, our rich moisturising cream also contains nourishing Shea and Moringa butters. Both incredibly rich in fatty acids, Shea butter comforts and softens the skin whilst Moringa improves the skin barrier function and nourishes and moisturizes dry and very dry skin. 


For combination skin: Aquabella Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion

For those who have combination skin, that is primarily an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, you need to use a moisturiser which a lightweight texture. Although it may feel like the oily parts of your skin don’t need to be moisturised, the true fact is, oily T-zone hugely benefits from moisturiser. A moisturiser for combination skin can help to smooth, mattify and freshen your skin from the very first application. 

Our Beauty-Revealing Moisturising Emulsion from our Aquabella® Range, is a combination skincare specially formulated to both hydrate and mattify. It contains powerful White Water Lily which hydrates the skin whilst targeting oiliness as well as a natural blur complex which visibly improve the skin's quality. The emulsion has a light, non-greasy feel due to its mattifying ingredient, silica powder which absorbs and eliminates excess sebum.
