    Moisturiser - Australia 

    An indispensable component of anyone's skincare regime, everyone requires a moisturiser matched with their skin type and requirements. Moisturisers hydrate and revitalise the skin, creating a protective layer against external aggressors, preventing dryness and flakiness.

    How often should I apply moisturiser?

    It's recommended to apply moisturiser twice a day, after cleansing your face in the morning and before bed at night. Adjust as needed based on your skin type and environment.

    What ingredients should I look for in a moisturiser?

    Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid for hydration, glycerin for moisture retention, antioxidants like vitamin C or E for protection, and SPF for sun protection. We particularly love the SPF Moisturiser from Standard Procedure: it’s Australian made, so you know it’s good.

    Can I use the same moisturiser for my face and body?

    While some moisturisers can be used on both the face and body, it's generally better to use a separate moisturiser for your face that is specifically formulated for facial skin.

    Can moisturiser help with oily skin?

    Even oily skin benefits from the use of a moisturiser. Moisturisers are available that are lightweight and non-comedogenic, meaning they won't clog pores. Look for oil-free or mattifying formulas. These moisturisers are also great for acne-prone skin, as they regulate oil production. Without it, the skin overcompensates and produces an excess of oil. 

    The Ultra Concentrate Matt Moisturiser from men-u is lightweight and oil-free. It contains sebum absorbers to combat areas of greasy skin, especially around the T-Zone while the moisturiser is readily absorbed.

    Is there a moisturiser that helps with anti-aging?

    Moisturisers with ingredients like retinol, peptides, or hyaluronic acid can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

    Should I use a different moisturiser in winter and summer?

    Listen to your skin, which reacts to the change in season. In the colder months, choose a richer moisturiser to combat dryness, and in summer, opt for a lighter formula or a moisturiser. 

    How long should I wait after applying moisturiser before applying sunscreen?

    Allow the moisturiser to fully absorb into your skin, usually about 5-10 minutes, before applying sunscreen to ensure both products are effective.

    Should I use different moisturisers for day and for night?

    Depending on your skincare needs, a moisturiser with a heavier, more occlusive consistency with repairing ingredients is perfect for the evening. While a lightweight moisturiser with (or without) sunscreen is perfect for the daytime.

    Which moisturiser for my dry skin? 

    Those with dry skin should seek richer formulations that provide intensive hydration whilst reducing signs of irritation. Patricks AM1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer is designed with normal-to-dry skin in mind. This luxuriously rich moisturising cream absorbs quickly on the skin.
