Multitasking Moisturisers To Hydrate, Treat & Perfect In One Step

Designed to provide a hit of hydration to keep dry patches, dullness and dehydration at bay, moisturiser pretty much does what it says on the tin. But it’s safe to say our skin is a lot more complex than that.

With skin conditions like female adult acne on the rise, as well as a focus on the effects of pollution, UV and inflammation, we need a lot more from our skincare than a simple surge of moisture. Of course, serums, toners, masks and treatments are great products to supplement a skincare routine, although the trend for layering multiple formulas and textures can not only lead to breakouts and irritation but eat into your beauty budget, too.

Enter the new breed of moisturisers, which address multiple skin needs in one single tube. From Allies of Skin to The Ordinary, not only do these multitaskers provide much-needed hydration, they boast a handful of benefits, from exfoliation to acne care, pollution protection to hyperpigmentation control. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Click through to discover the best moisturisers, which hydrate, treat and perfect in one simple step.

My Celebrity Life – Lernberger Stafsing Day Cream

This boasts a dream team of ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid to banish that uncomfortable, taut feeling after cleansing, squalane to moisturise without clogging pores and buzzy niacinamide, which brings down redness, improves uneven skin tone and helps control excess oil production. In turn, dermatologists say that this may indirectly help with mild acne. 

My Celebrity Life – Avon Anew Pollution Protect+ Day Defence Lotion SPF50

SPF 50, blue light filters and antioxidants to fend off pollution make this the ultimate multitasking daytime moisturiser. The UV protection is high but it doesn’t feel thick or mask-like.

My Celebrity Life – Allies Of Skin 1A Retinal Peptides Overnight Mask
Allies Of Skin 1A Retinal Peptides Overnight Mask
Use this overnight mask like you would a night cream. Inside you’ll find retinal, a vitamin A derivative which works in a speedier way than retinol by encouraging your skin to produce newer, brighter cells with little to no irritation. The addition of hyaluronic acid quenches thirsty skin, while niacinamide reduces redness.

My Celebrity Life – Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Exfoliating Moisturizer

This instantly makes skin dewy but over time, lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids slough away at dead, dull skin cells to smooth and brighten. It absorbs in seconds and doesn’t sting like other acid-based treatments. You can use it in the daytime (but always follow with SPF) or at night.

My Celebrity Life – Tandem More Than Moisturiser

Lightweight but quenching, this is a serum-moisturiser hybrid, which means you can skip a step. Vitamin C works like a shield against environmental nasties like pollution, while ceramides hydrate, calm and repair dry skin so that it locks in moisture better.

My Celebrity Life – The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA
The star ingredients in this simple yet effective moisturiser are glycerin and hyaluronic acid, both humectants which draw moisture into the deeper layers of the skin. It’s entirely oil-free and mattifies skin without the need for an extra primer.

My Celebrity Life – Neutrogena Clear Defend Moisturiser

Salicylic acid is the powerhouse ingredient in this affordable moisturiser. Unlike other acids, it exfoliates deeper inside the pore to help break up the paste-like mixture of dead skin and oil, preventing things like blackheads over time. It’s oil-free, too, so makes a great addition to an acne skincare routine in both the morning and evening.

My Celebrity Life – ADC Beauty 01 High Performance Moisturiser
A.D.C Beauty 01 High Performance Moisturiser
Formulated by makeup artist Adam de Cruz, this moisturiser feels like silk. Thanks to an army of plant-based oils, it plumps and smooths skin prone to parched, uneven patches and makes for an effective, glow-boosting primer before makeup.

My Celebrity Life – La RochePosay Effaclar Duo+

Okay, this moisturiser isn’t exactly brand-new but there’s a good reason why dermatologists recommend it for spot-prone skin time and time again. Redness-reducing niacinamide, exfoliating salicylic acid and moisturising glycerin make it an all-rounder. But the best part is the featherlight texture, so you can apply makeup directly on top. 

My Celebrity Life – It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Face Cream

This tinted cream is great for pale skin prone to redness. Pigments suspended in the velvety formula blanket broken capillaries, rosacea and blemishes, while oatmeal moisturises deeply and aloe soothes.
