By Contributor: Ananya
Sometimes, skin looks dull and parched which is caused by its inability to retain moisture. Skin feels tight and can be prone to sensitivity due to low level of sebum. People with dehydrated, sensitive and dry skin face cracking and chapping whether men or women. Skin feels uncomfortable after washing unless some moisturizing cream has been applied. Often we have different moisturizer needs for different skin types like dry skin or oily skin. Also for different body parts like face, neck, hands, legs, etc. Sometimes for morning, or for under makeup or even for dealing with acne. Here are the 10 best moisturizers in India for both men and women that your dry skin will love.
Moisturizing your face and body skin helps in locking down skin’s natural moisture and return the natural oils that have been removed. The moisturising creme you choose actually depends on the skin’s ability to retain moisture and the level of dryness it faces. Moisturizing your skin daily makes the results last longer.
