You’re probably all familiar with this word and have seen it many a time listed on the various packaging of the products in your bathroom, especially your body moisturisers.
Basically an emollient is just that, a moisturising treatment that locks all the lovely hydration into your skin, protecting it from the harsh elements such as sun, wind and other environmental aggressors.
Below are some of the luxury end of the market emollients including my own hands down favourite of ALL TIME, Kiehls Creme de Corps.
Though they are used medically for sufferers of eczema and psoriasis, they are widely used in skincare to increase hydration and can be particularly effective in cold weather.
Using an emollient will help keep your skin soft, smooth and reduce any redness so grab yours now and liberally apply before you head off out today. I just checked outside and its cold and windy so make sure your skin is properly protected.
