Dry Skin

You experience problems like dry and flaky skin, itchiness, and redness. If you usually have dry skin, it will be even drier during winter. The best kinds of moisturisers for drying would be humectants(read substances that keep things moist and prevent water loss) like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. You can opt for an intensely thick moisturising cream like Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Deep Moisturising Cream SPF 20 PA+++. Loaded with the goodness of milk enzymes and Saxifraga flower extract, the moisturiser gives you a deep nourishment and a smooth skin texture. More importantly it will prevent your skin from UV rays and skin damage.

What should you look for in your moisturiser?

Trust us; we get it. Buying moisturisers can be a handful of tasks. With so many products claiming to have many qualities, it is easy to get lost. Here is why we have a small list of qualities that should be common in all moisturisers.

Sun protection

When you buy moisturiser, check if it has SPF(Sun Protection Factor). If so, it will protect your skin from sun rays in a hot country like ours. Make sure that your moisturiser contains SPF. You also may notice moisturisers have” broad spectrum” written on their labels. Whenever you go for choosing a sun protection moisturising cream, prefer the broad spectrum one which prohibits both UVA and UVB rays.


Antioxidants are always good, be it for nutritional purposes or topical use. They fight the skin cell-damaging free radicals and keep them healthy. It also helps in collagen production, which plays a big role in keeping your skin from sagging. So, if you want to go

opt for a Vitamin C moisturiser for that extra mile for glowing skin.

Go Green

In the changing beauty world, we have ample options of  alluring products but as they say all that glitters are not gold. So, every product cannot suit you. Many of us have also been affected with the chemical ingredients and toxins in the topical skincare products. That’s why natural products are in demand. Naturally enriched moisturisers are also very popular among us. If you want to explore some natural moisturisers, you can try out Lotus Herbals Skin Care Products.

Ingredients to Avoid

While purchasing moisturisers, keep an eye out for these ingredients. These ingredients and qualities are injurious to your skin.


Make sure your moisturiser does not contain paraben. Many moisturisers contain paraben, which is known to cause irritation and allergic reactions.


Alluringly sweet aromas may be enchanting, but aromas result from artificial chemicals added to the product. If you are not buying a herbal product, we suggest going for a fragrance-free moisturiser.

When should you apply moisturiser?

Apply moisture when your skin is still damp, and pat it dry. It will be easier for your skin to absorb the moisturiser.

No matter what high-ended specialised products, you add to your skincare routine, moisturiser is just like a magic potion which can lock your skin glow and radiance.
