Moisturiser AKA day cream is the cornerstone of a decent skincare routine, not only does it soften and hydrate skin, but it also works to protect your complexion from damage. There are hundreds of moisturisers out there, even here at Lancôme we have a vast selection of formulations created for precise needs and skin types. In this guide, we’ll take you through a selection of our moisturising creams, explaining what they can do for your skin and why they deserve the star spot in your daily skincare routine. Let’s get started . . .
For A Healthy Skin Barrier
The top layer of your skin is, of course, the visible layer, and keeping it healthy means skin will look good to the naked eye. The other, seriously important point to remember is that an unhealthy skin barrier is extremely problematic. A damaged barrier lets pollution, debris and dirt meet the lower layers of skin which simply cannot protect itself and so will react with extreme dryness, even cracks, redness, rashes, irritation, and breakouts. A healthy skin barrier is a worthwhile pursuit of any skincare routine because it means skin is strong, working efficiently and as a result feels smooth and looks healthy.
This lightweight hydrating moisturiser strengthens the skin barrier, leaves skin feeling velvety soft and helps to promote a more youthful complexion. Apply every morning either directly after cleansing or following your serum. Insider tip – it pairs perfectly with Advanced Génifique Serum. For a more intense experience in the evenings, apply Advanced Génifique Night Cream, this moisturising night cream maximises the power of overnight repair and works to seal in moisture and repair the skin barrier for stronger skin.
For Anti-Ageing Benefits
Here at Lancôme, we are experts in anti-ageing formulas and our scientists are always researching and pushing boundaries to help create the most effective skincare for mature skin. When it comes to moisturiser ingredients, you’ll find all the anti-ageing big hitters, but we believe formula is the key and every one of our products is effective, efficient and specialist.
A highly concentrated anti-ageing moisturiser that includes over 300 types of Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide. This all-in-one daily hydrating moisturiser helps to target the appearance of dark spots and works to strengthen the skin barrier. Wrinkles appear reduced too, with improved smoothness of skin, plus the face and neck feel tightened. For those aged 40-59 years, this cream provides the environment to allow the skin to regenerate faster, even as you age*. Great news, as skin’s natural cell renewal slows down as we age and leads to dullness, dry patches, and looser skin. Apply every morning either after cleansing or following your serum step. In the evening, choose a powerful anti-ageing night cream such as Rénergie Multi-Lift Night Cream which combines Hyaluronic Acid, Linseed Extract and 6 different Lipids to act at night, when skin renewal peaks. Apply every night to see significant results on skin firmness and wrinkles. If you’re looking for a luxuriously textured daytime moisturiser to help nourish and revitalise, then reach for Absolue Soft Cream. This brightening cream with Grand Rose extracts melts into skin to deliver active ingredients. Gently massage the rich and silky cream into skin for a soft, comfortable feel, hydrated skin and a beautiful luminous glow.
For Sun Protection
Daily SPF is a key element of a youth preserving skincare regime because the sun’s rays damage skin, leading to premature fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and dark spots. It's a must for mature skin types, as well as younger skin. Use a daily SPF skincare product or reach for a daily moisturiser such as Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Cream SPF20. This melting, lightweight moisturiser with Hyaluronic Acid delivers triple efficacy: fine lines look smoother - skin feels firmer and dark spots on face appear less visible. Plus, it also contains the all-important sun protection, while providing 24-hour hydration. Apply every morning, sweeping the snow-melting texture over the face and neck.
For Hydration and Nourishment
Sometimes skin just needs a little bit of extra TLC from a day cream, enter Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturising Cream. This ultra-soothing day cream nourishes even delicate skin and helps to protect from environmental damage. Enriched with Rose de France, Mu Dan Pi: Paeonia Suffruticosa and Moringa extracts, this soft textured cream is suitable even for sensitive skin. The hydrating formula leaves skin feeling soft, smooth, and appearing radiant.
