All about moisturising

Moisturising the skin is one of the most important tasks in skincare. Proper and adequate moisturisation can be the key to treating a number of skin problems.

Dehydrated skin can cause roughness, uneven skin tone, impurities, fine lines and even oiliness. Many of these are often treated with strong exfoliants, cleansers or skin activators, although the cause may be dry skin, which can be exacerbated by these products. So it’s worth starting by trying to see what a good moisturising treatment can do for your skin.

Moisturising your skin starts with nourishing it. Don’t over-dry your skin with harsh detergents or soaps. Gentle but effective cleansing is an important part of maintaining the skin’s moisture balance. Smuuti Skin Watermelon Sorbet Balm cleanses the skin of dirt and even waterproof make-up without the use of strong surfactants or detergents. It can work for dry skin as the only cleansing step, but other skin types can use this as the first part of a double cleanse, washing the skin first with an oil-based cleanser and then a water-based one.

You can moisturise your skin anywhere in between your skincare or make-up routine. You can also moisturise as needed throughout the day, especially if your make-up tends to dry out on your skin. Smuuti Skin Watermelon Dew Toner Mist is a great way to add hydration in between. The lightweight mist moisturises effectively but absorbs instantly, making it perfect for make-up too. The mist is also a great way to prepare for the next steps in your skincare routine, which often require something lightly moisturising underneath.

Freshness of watermelon for hydration

In the Watermelon Dew range, you’ll find vitamin-rich watermelon extract, which enhances moisture absorption and retention, and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective ingredients for moisturising the skin and should be found in serums, for example. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means that it attracts moisture from the air and from the skin. However, if there is already a lot of moisture in the skin from, for example, a face spray, it will bind this moisture to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is found in all products in the Smuuti Watermelon Dew range.

However, the Smuuti Skin Watermelon Dew Serum contains the most hyaluronic acid, making it the most effective product for moisturising the skin. The high concentration of different molecular sizes of hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates every layer of the skin, also bringing a visible glow to the surface. The serum is ideal for both your evening routine to recharge your skin for the night and for the start of your make-up routine to keep your make-up hydrated and plump. The serum’s niacinamide also helps to brighten and firm the skin and also acts as a natural moisturiser, hydrating the skin without the required moisture.


The final step in moisturising the skin is the moisturiser itself, which locks in all the moisture and leaves the skin with a final glow.


The final step in moisturising the skin is the moisturiser itself, which locks in all the moisture and leaves the skin with a final glow. Without a moisturiser, all moisture will slowly evaporate from the skin, leaving it dry again. Smuuti Skin Watermelon Jelly Cream already provides the skin with plenty of moisture on its own, but also absorbs the moisture from other products. It also contains niacinamide and, with the product reformulation, no longer rolls under make-up. However, very dry skin may need a slightly oilier cream for the night, as the Jelly Cream itself contains very little oil. Overall, Jelly Cream is the perfect moisturiser, especially in the morning.

With these instructions, surface dryness should be a thing of the past and your skin should glow with moisture. In addition, any skin problems caused by dryness should fade within a few weeks. Smuuti Watermelon Dew range provides the perfect base for a simple moisturising skincare routine.
