Skincare routine is incomplete if an individual doesn’t moisturise the skin. But what if you are doing the same and still not getting any results and instead of a healthy hydrated skin you are getting breakouts?
Maybe, you are making a mistake that’s why?
Choosing the wrong product is the mistake!
As I told you all in my earlier posts about the importance of right skin care products which are meant for your skin type. So no matter what product you are planning to use, just wait a bit, look at your skin and observe. Find out your skin requirements, does it need moisture? Or you are just willing to get rid of the oily surface.
Pay attention to your “skin needs” to make it healthier.
While talking about the moisturisers, one of the things which matter most is the formula. Such as thick creams, lightweight lotions or gels. Keep reading to find the ideal match for your skin.
This skin type is a tricky one as you need a product which can moisturise the normal skin area but lightweight enough to hydrate oily T-zone. Look for the ingredients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin A & Dimethicone.
The vitamins help in neutralise free radicals (Molecules which causes cell damage), encourages healthy skin cell production & keeps the skin firm. Whereas Dimethicone does not let the water evaporate from your skin.
Light cream, lotion & gel creams are the ideal formulations for Normal and Combination skin.

There is a myth that people with oily skin do not need a moisturiser and this is a huge mistake. If you belong to this skin category and doing the same thing then my friend you are making your skin condition really bad.
Let me answer the “why”.
When our skin is dehydrated, then it creates more sebum, which ultimately causes more oily surface, clogged pores and breakouts. Therefore, you need to moisturise your face to control oil production.
Products you need to use should be Non-comedogenic, Lightweight, Water-based gel formulas. Focus on the ingredients like Retinol, Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid & Hyaluronic Acid.
Some key benefits of these ingredients are- Retinol repairs the skin damage & rejuvenate skin, Non-comedogenic product prevents your skin from clogged pores and hydrates your skin at the same time, Salicylic Acid reduces the inflammation, sheds the dead skin cells & speeds the healing of pimples.
Meantime, Glycolic Acid treats scarring, dullness and oiliness. Hyaluronic Acid makes skin look supple and provides anti-ageing benefits.

Though the sensitive skin and dry skin always want extra care, so make sure you use rich buttery creams and moisturisers. Lightweight formulas just do not work well with dry skin as the skin absorbs the formula quickly.
Look for oil-based products, especially for the night skincare regime to give your skin utmost hydration. Say yes to organic products or very gentle products if you have sensitive skin.
The key ingredients you need to look for are anti-oxidants, Hydraulic Acid, Organic body butter and oils.

Dear friends, If you want your skin to look the best it can then you need to take care of it. A simple CTM process should be a part of your lifestyle in order to maintain a healthy skin. Just follow the day & night CTM process in an everyday routine with the right products and notice the impact yourself.
