BSKhan asks:


Hope you guys are all doing good…

My problem is that after washing my face my skin becomes very dry. I know its perfectly normal in this weather but the minute I apply any moisturizer it feels heavy and cakey. I have tried various moisturizers but all feel the same.Could you please suggest what I should do or any particular moisturizer that I could use.

Thanks. 🙂

  1. There are many. I recently used Lakme’s peach milk moisturizer. Its a water-based moisturizer and so it glides on the skin, wont feel heavy at all. It has a nice fragrance too.

  2. use very little and look for “oil free” and water based on the bottle
    just go dab dab with your palms instead of rubbing it in
    Hope it works better

  3. i was facing d same problem a couple of months back n someone suggested organic surge daily blissful moisturizer..n lemme tell u its amazing!all natural n leaves the skin soft n supple…they also have another variant for dry skin!

  4. I love Emolene for my face. A heavier but yet not cakey one would be Biotique’s Morning Nectar. Also, as Neha said, dab dab dab. I prefer the Creme de la Mer method of application. Has worked wonders on my face! Google it.

  5. Check if you are using a strong cleanser/face wash. Switch to a milder one like cetaphil or search for mild face washes on google or IMBB, you will find many. Half of your problem should be solved. You can try Sebamed moisturising cream or pure almond oil at night.

  6. All days are not the same… on some days you need a normal moisturizer and some days the skin needs something like an oil or something like a body butter…. wash with lukewarm water and on moist skin press the moisturizer on your face. Like-> apply a little pressure while applying. helps me in tis cold.
