In the previous blog, we talked about the CTM routine, if you remember... and if you don’t, you mustn’t have read it at all! So, before you go ahead and read this blog, we sincerely urge you to stop right here and quickly brush up on your basics about the very potent and extremely powerful Thalgo cleansers and toners. After that, you can come back to learn all about the last product in the CTM routine... the moisturisers!
Okay then, let’s not beat around the bush and dive deep into the very nourishing and hydrating world of moisturisers, shall we?
We kind of bet that at some point in our lives we have all thought of moisturisers as mere cosmetic products that the beauty industry is trying to push to increase sales, but thanks to the Internet for its easy access to information, we finally know that there are actual medical benefits of using a moisturiser.
It doesn’t matter if you have normal, dry, oily, or even combination skin, incorporating a moisturiser into your skin care regimen is an absolute must, and on days you are feeling lazy and want to skip moisturising, remember that hydrated skin is happy skin!
All right, moving on...
The skin on our faces, necks, and other facial areas is far more sensitive and delicate than the rest of the body, which means it needs extra care and attention. Factors such as humidity, temperature, and pollution can cause the skin to lose moisture, making it vulnerable to acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
All of us need and deserve healthy, radiant, and nourished skin, and the best and easiest way to achieve this is by applying moisturiser religiously every day. Other advantages of using a moisturiser include relief from dry and problematic skin, assistance in fighting wrinkles and achieving firmer and tighter skin, increased skin cell turnover, and so much more.
If you still don’t think we made a convincing case, the following are a few more elaborate reasons why you need a moisturiser ASAP!
Reason #1 : Goodbye Blemishes!
When your skin is healthy, nourished, fresh and taken care of with moisturisers packed with essential nutrients, get ready to say bye to acne and pimples! The powerful ingredients in these moisturisers attack germs, reduce redness, discolouration, and dark spots too.
Reason #2: Resilience Against Environmental Toxins
A good moisturiser repairs and protects the lipid barrier while protecting it from pollutants, toxins and other damaging forces.
Some moisturisers even come with SPF included. These further protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which is the number one reason for cancer and hyperpigmentation.
Reason #3: Healthy Pores!
On a daily basis, your pores accumulate a lot of dirt, gunk, and pollutants. These toxins clog the pores and cause skin issues. By moisturising your skin, you are filling up the pores with the necessary hydration and nutrition your skin requires while keeping the toxins far, far away!
Oh! Come on now, stop randomly googling for moisturisers. We’ve already got you covered with the best in the market. The following are 6 marvellous moisturisers from Thalgo which will turn out to be your best investment ever!
Have a look!
The name is self-explanatory... if you seek hydration around the clock, Thalgo’s Hydra-Marine 24H Cream is what you need in stock!
This cream is ideal for normal, dry, dehydrated skin or for people who simply prefer lightweight gel creams over heavy formulations. The cream helps in revitalising, remineralising and boosting skin radiance and happens to be the first 24 hour moisturiser that creates vital water well at the heart of the skin, regenerates its light resources and restores the skin’s original tone. The cream is infused with active ingredients like Hydra-Diffusine, Hyalurophyline, Sève Bleue des Ocèans, and Lumisource, which help stimulate the aquaporins to facilitate the diffusion of dermal water to the layers of the epidermis, create water reserves thanks to the synthesis of epidermal hyaluronic acid, drench the epidermis in mineral-replenishing vital water, restore the barrier function of the epidermis, and boost the natural detoxification process of the cells. We haven’t even told you about the best part of this cream-the scent. The tea and white flower fragrance is so light and refreshing, it will instantly uplift your mood. And what do we even say about the rich, luxurious texture? It’s WOW. Once you apply the cream, it leaves your skin feeling velvety smooth and keeps it hydrated for 24 hours straight. Apply the Hydra- Marine 24H Cream on your face and neck twice a day on clean skin, and finish it with a quick and easy massage by stimulating tapping movements over your face from the bottom to the top.
Go get your glow, gurl!
If there is one moisturiser that’ll literally make you shine bright like a diamond, it’s this one! Thalgo’s Brightening Cream gives you luminous, even-toned skin and also diminishes hyperpigmentation and dark spots caused by UV exposure, pollution, blue light, and ageing, of course. The formula is enriched with Brown Algae Extract, which efficiently reduces
dark spots and brings out naturally brighter skin. Achillea Millefolium Extract helps you achieve smoother skin by boosting cell renewal, while Polysaccharides from Maize protect the skin against oxidative stress. In all, if your skin issues revolve around dark spots, pigmentation, and overall dull skin, you need to grab the Brightening Cream ASAP! The moisturiser is ideal for all skin types and has to be applied on a clean face, after toning and before applying sunscreen. The ingredients are extracted from sustainable resources, and the cream is free from parabens, mineral oils, propylene glycol, and GMOs.
Is your skin dry as a desert, and does that constant tight, itchy, irritating feeling get the best of you? Well! Then you’ve come to the right place. Thalgo’s Nutri-Soothing Rich Cream is the first face moisturiser with Cold Cream Marine, which contains Algae Oil, Algae Wax, and Sève Bleue des Océans that efficiently soothes, repairs, and replenishes dry and sensitive skin while restoring a nourishing and comforting feeling for up to 24 hours. This high performance balm like cream is specially formulated for ultra-dry skin and is packed with the goodness of organic White Lupin extracts, Wheat Germ Oil and Pine Phytosterols. These together correct the lipid metabolism and protect against dehydration, leaving the skin soothed and nourished. The moisturiser is allergen-free and has a sweet, comforting scent as well! Now, because the texture is a little balmy, you can take a little bit of the Nutri-Soothing Rich Cream and warm it between your palms before you apply it to your face. But has anybody let you in on a secret yet? Even though it’s balmy and rich in texture, you can use it throughout the year!
Wrinkle-wrinkle, go away, come again... Never ever, ever, ever!
Thalgo’s Wrinkle Correcting Rich Cream is an anti-ageing cream rich in 3 forms of Hyaluronic Acid and Marine Pro-Collagen which intensely moisturises the skin, restores suppleness and gives it a lifted, firm look as well as fills in stubborn wrinkles and helps in reducing fine lines with each passing day! The texture is creamy and rich... and immediately melts into the skin, delivering nourishment and a more youthful look! The Thalgo Wrinkle Correcting Cream is mostly for women over the age of 35 who want a go-to daily cream that smoothens and fills wrinkles. This moisturiser is a daily skin care product and is suitable for all skin types.
Another anti-ageing cream from Thalgo is this Lifting Correcting Day Cream, which is formulated for deeper wrinkles and sagging skin. Thalgo has been exploring the depths of the oceans for over 50 years in search of youthfulness-boosting molecules to offer every woman an anti-ageing solution that is specially curated for her needs. This moisturiser specialises in giving the much needed lift that the skin deserves and lessens the wrinkles visibly too! The cream has an exquisite luxe texture that restores the skin’s natural
firmness and elasticity and gives it a toned appearance, all thanks to the remarkable power of Thalgo’s Marine Silicium. Another active ingredient that plays a very important role is the Double Urban Protection Shield, which helps in protecting against the harmful effects of chemicals, pollutants, and toxins. It also repairs damage caused by these elements, which are the number 1 reason for accelerating the appearance of ageing. This cream is for all skin types and is advised to be applied in the morning on a freshly cleansed face and neck, before applying sunscreen. So, if you want visibly younger skin and are looking for a cream that helps boost skin elasticity, you’ve got to immediately reach out to Thalgo’s Lifting Correcting Day Cream!
