Best Beauty Buys is The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s annual round up of the very best and most effective products currently on the shelves. This year, we put the spotlight on the skincare and makeup needs of busy mums who juggle multiple children and demanding jobs who still want to look and feel good doing it. This year’s products were road-tested by a group of such multi-tasking women, and these are their picks.
We get it. After a long day of juggling multiple hats, finding the time and energy to do your skincare routine can seem like an insurmountable chore to overcome. But if you really want to pare down and simplify the task, a great moisturiser is your best friend. Facial moisturisers contain both humectants to hydrate and occlusives to seal in moisture and together, they keep the skin in balance.
These days, advances in skincare research have also found ways to make moisturisers even more powerful workhorses, thanks to the addition of active ingredients that can target acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and more. Heck, there are even tinted moisturisers so you can skip applying foundation on tired mornings.
