Winter. It’s that time of the year where the shelves in your local supermarket are flooded with moisturizers from every brand. All of them look so good, so sophisticated and so aesthetically pleasing that it is natural for you to feel a little overwhelmed at their sight. While it is advisable to choose the best brand, it is also important to choose something that is suitable for your unique skin type and budget.
So what is a moisturizer?
As the name indicates, a moisturizer is an emollient that keeps your skin hydrated and fresh all day by locking in the moisture. The right moisturizer also helps with the elasticity of your skin by helping in the creation of your skin protein called collagen. A good moisturizer also doubles as a shield against the harmful rays of the sun. Lakme has recently launched several moisturizing creams keeping in mind the unique skincare regimen dermatologically recommended for each person. You can shop for the moisturizers from Lakme stable at Lakme Salon at the most attractive discounts.
Know your skin type
Before you zero-in on just any moisturizer that seems good enough, remember that a good skin regimen is not only important to give you a good appearance but also important to safeguard your skin health. A little diagnosis goes a long way when you need to choose the right fit.
- Dry skin will benefit from oil-based, heavy moisturizers that work to lock in and seal the moisture.
- Oily skin will benefit from water-based, lighter moisturizers that provide you the right amount of moisture.
- Sensitive skin will appreciate natural and soothing ingredients such as Aloe vera that won’t be harmful to your skin.
- Normal skin or combination skin is the most frequently occurring skin type and needs to be treated with light, water-based moisturizers.
Most skin care professionals suggest moisturizing twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. This ensures your skin’s moisture will remain constant both throughout the day and while you sleep, so you can always look forward to supple, healthy skin. This applies to even oily skin as secretion of oil is seen as the skin’s demand for moisture. You should use a cleanser, toner, antioxidant serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen, and in that order for the best results.
Let’s now look at the top 5 moisturizers from Lakme Salon in detail:
- Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Crème, Light Weight With 24Hr Moisture Lock,150 g
It is infused with the goodness of peaches and milk and it is indeed as delectable to the senses as the name suggests. The gentle fragrance is something you are going to love as you apply the moisturizer on your skin right after a wash.
It is based on a formula that locks in moisture for up to 24 hours, which means you can apply it just once in the morning and reap all its benefits over the day.

If you want even more nourishment, opt for Lakme’s intense peach milk lotion. So you must be thinking, “what about protection from the sun?”. The good news is that Lakme has a peachy solution for that too in the form of Lakme peach milk SPF 24 lotion. It is a moisturizer that doubles as sunscreen and gives you all the protection when you venture outdoors.

Its gel-based formula is suitable for dry skin type and it is so gentle on your skin that you will find it utterly irresistible. It acts as a primer for your skin so that you can wear makeup on top of it with ease. It is from the highly popular Lakme 9 to 5 range, so all the more reason why you should give it a look.
When I say gel, you might be wondering if it is sticky. The good news is that it is a completely non-sticky, lightweight gel that soothes and hydrates stressed skin.
