There's a reason why cleansing, toning, and moisturising became the cult routine for skincare enthusiasts worldwide. These three simple steps accomplish all aims, cover all the basic ingredients, and are entirely effective.
Even though the basic three-step routine has grown to 10 separately defined steps in Korea, the actions of each of those three original steps remain solid pillars of any skincare routine.
Pillar No. 3 is the most giving, nourishing, and long-lasting in its efficacy. Without moisturiser, no skincare routine is complete. Even oily and acne-prone complexions benefit from a well-chosen lightweight moisturiser.
The Adore Beauty Luxe range of moisturisers takes the traditional benefit of a classic moisturiser and pairs it with carefully chosen actives, combining tradition with years of leading-edge development.

It's accurate to say that moisturisers are complex, effective, and tailored products. Moisturisers boost the hydration content of your skin with humectants, emollients, and occlusives. The right moisturiser for your skin type will feature these three ingredients in varying quantities.
Humectant-based moisturisers contain ingredients that behave as tiny moisture magnets, attracting water from the air and locking it into your skin. Humectants are great for normal and oily skin types. You'll find humectant-based moisturisers laden with glycerine, panthenol, and hyaluronic acid.
Emollients are moisturising ingredients that improve the condition of your skin by softening, smoothing, and soothing. All skin types benefit from daily application of emollients. You'll find a variety of ingredients, from colloidal oatmeal to rosehip seed oil to ceramides, in emollient moisturisers.
Occlusives are skincare ingredients that prevent moisture loss by forming a second skin and sealing in hydration. Occlusive moisturisers are perfect for dry skin types. Look for formulas packed full of natural waxes, lanolin, and silicones.
Our Pro range of facial moisturisers has been handpicked to include formulas with various proportions of humectants, emollients, and occlusives. There's a product perfect for every skin type.

Even the most minimalist skincare routine should include a moisturiser.
A moisturiser is the only skincare product that cover all bases of efficacy. Face creams and lotions provide skin with hydration, nutrients, and active ingredients that address specific concerns.
Although you may find efficacy from serums, essences, toners, and facial oils, you'll be able to combine many of their benefits by simply choosing the right moisturiser.
A product that offers combined benefits, moisturiser not only helps treat existing skincare concerns but also helps prevent future concerns. Whilst sun protection is widely known as the most cost-effective anti-ageing cream, moisturiser is surely a close second.
In fact, our Essentials range contains moisturisers that multitask by offering both SPF and daily nutritive hydration.
It's uncommonly recognised that skin is as essential an organ as your heart or lungs. Skin's biological aim is to protect you from external stressors, whether they be UV radiation, pollution, or microbes. These stressors are experienced by skin 24/7/365.
Daily use of a moisturiser targeted to your specific skin concerns builds resilience that allows your skin to remain youthful for longer. Be sure to provide your complexion with the ingredients it needs to remain healthy.
