Ensuring that our skin is adequately hydrated is one of the most basic and crucial steps for healthy skin.

For starters, well-moisturised skin keeps skin surface smooth and plump. It also ensures that cellular turnover is optimised so the skin remains radiant. But before you think that only those with dry skin require intense hydration, the fact is everyone, even those with oily skin, can do with it. After all, if you keep your skin properly hydrated, it prevents your sebum glands from going into overdrive.
