The benefits of moisturising are endless. Moisturiser settles on the outer layers of the skin and prevents the water that’s in your skin from escaping into the air.
Benefits of using night moisturiser:
Moisturiser keeps the surface of the skin soft and supple, which helps the skin work properly as a barrier. At night, give your retinoid plenty of time to be absorbed – purists will say half an hour; but it’s already bedtime, so 10 minutes is better than nothing – then add the peptides, if you’re using them, then pop some moisturiser over the top. Why? Because the retinoid is likely to make your skin feel dry, and using moisturiser will help counteract this. Use any moisturiser you like – the only job it is doing here is holding moisture into the skin.
