Natalie's top morning & evening moisturisers

Moisturisers are definitely a step in your skin care routine you don't want to skip. Our skin is the largest organ of our body & it needs hydration daily. Moisturisers act as just that, hydrators for your top layer of skin & if it doesn't receive any hydration, it can appear dry, dull, lifeless & more aged. Think of it as giving your skin a big drink of water as well as helping your skin barrier function more efficiently & keeping your serums goodness in your skin. As we age our skin loses its ability to retain water, so moisturising at any age is important.

Morning moisturisers should always be applied straight after your serum & right before your SPF. They are going to protect your skin barrier during the day as well as protecting you from free radical damage, a.k.a accelerated ageing. Your AM moisturiser can also contain SPF so that you are moisturised & protected at the same time. We usually like a lighter moisturiser for the day that also sits well under make-up if you wear it. 
Here are my top 5 morning moisturisers:

Our skin repairs whilst we sleep so your night moisturiser will usually be thicker & more nourishing so it can get to work on repairing any damage done to your skin in the day. It also feels nicer at night to apply a thicker moisturiser at night & almost like beauty sleep for your skin.
