One of the best things you can do for your skin is to invest in a good, and I mean good moisturiser. There are multiple options in the market – from Alia Bhatt’s favourite Barrier Repair Cream to Anne Hathaway’s sheet masks. So I can only imagine how hard it is to figure out what works for you, especially if you have sensitive skin.
But recently, Athiya Shetty (who does have sensitive skin) took to IG Stories to reveal her favourite oat-based moisturiser. Keep reading to find out what it is.
What Is Athiya Shetty’s Fave Moisturiser?
The Nawabzaade actor loves the Ultra Repair Cream for Intense Hydration by First Aid Beauty. And if you’ve got skin that sometimes throws a tantrum or has a disrupted barrier thanks to too much experimenting, this is the perfect moisturiser for you.
It’s got colloidal oatmeal, which is great for calming down any itchiness or minor irritations. Mixed with some shea butter and allantoin, this also helps the skin heal and regenerate.
Here Are Affordable 5 Dupes For It
If you’re not in the mood to drop 5k for a moisturiser, I understand. Here is a list of 5 sensitive skin-specific dupes for this product that work just as well!
The Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream is formulated with beta-glucan, shea butter, and ceramides that prioritise skin health by repairing the skin’s barrier and moderating oil production. The main benefits include working to smoothen fine lines, alleviate skin irritations, brighten the complexion, and fortify the skin barrier.
The Suganda Calendula Oat Cream Moisturiser is another good option since it has colloidal oats, shea butter, and hemp oil. Each of these works towards nourishing and healing the skin without blocking your pores. The perfect pick for dry skin or eczema.
The Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-nourishing Cream keeps your skin soft and plum. With a bunch of ingredients that boosts skin hydration, it also works to preserve your skin barrier. Additionally, this one is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and free from fragrance, making it a great pick for sensitive skin.
The Minimalist 3% Sepicalm Face Moisturiser With Oat Extract is lightweight, super hydrating, and fragrance-free (my three favourite qualities in a good moisturiser). It’s for normal to oily skin so it does not feel too oily or sticky on the face and can also be used on acne-prone skin without fear of a breakout. Along with shea butter, the moisturiser is also made with polyglutamic acid for maximum skin hydration.
The COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream is a rich product that can be used on any skin type. Although, if you have oily skin, just use a small amount. The main qualities of this cream are that it soothes and calms any redness, does not aggravate pre-existing acne, and does a wonderful job of keeping your skin hydrated to the T.
Dealing with sensitive skin can be a hassle I know all too well! But with Athiya’s recommendation and these dupes, you’ve got a few new promising moisturiser options to add to your beauty routine.
