Moisture Boost, $144.45, IDS Skincare

Dehydration is the root of most skin problems. Without adequate hydration, skin cell turnover is compromised, which means dead skin cells accumulating on the topmost layer of skin, leading to clogged pores, dullness and lacklustre skin.

However, finding a good moisturiser can be a challenging task in Singapore— with our hot and humid weather, there’s a fine line between hydration and stickiness that needs to be tread. This is where the Moisture Boost from IDS Skincare comes in. As a home-grown skincare brand, IDS Skincare understands the needs of Singaporean skin, with years of experience treating them firsthand at IDS Clinic and IDS Aesthetics, IDS Skincare is able to formulate products based on the skin concerns that everyday Singaporeans face.

Moisture Boost is able to hydrate skin deeply to soothe parched skin, while strengthening it so that skin is able to defend itself against external aggressors. Its blend of cholesterol, ceramides and free fatty acids are formulated to be identical to skin, so there are fewer triggers for sensitivity and redness. Saccharide Isomerate, a natural carbohydrate found in the stratum corneum of skin, is able to offer deep hydration of up to 72 hours, strengthening skin’s natural barrier functions against environmental aggressors.

Niacinamide, an active, water-soluble form of vitamin B3 improve microcirculation and antioxidant protection. Skin elasticity is also improved, which in turn also helps to lessen the appearance of enlarged pores and fine lines.

Argania spinosa kernel oil—its super ingredient—contains high levels of antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin E, while hyaluronic acid penetrates deep into the skin to infuse hydration and plump up cells in order to promote a more radiant and youthful complexion.

In terms of texture, Moisture Boost applies easily and absorbs quickly to hydrate and soothe dryness. Makeup sits atop the moisturiser without shifting or feeling sticky, offering all-day hydration while feeling weightless on skin.
