Everyday we all face an endless struggle to meet work deadlines, check up on family and try to keep up friends. It seems like something or the other always needs our attention. With age, our responsibilities multiply and the phrase “Don’t grow up, it’s a trap” becomes clearer. If only we could go back in time and relive the good ol’ days, amirite? Unfortunately, this hectic lifestyle takes a toll on our skin and causes a great deal of damage. A detailed 12-step skincare routine is not a viable option for most of us… So what can we do? A few days ago when I was scrolling through Malini’s Girl Tribe I came across a very helpful thread. In this thread, women revealed their ride or die moisturises that worked wonders for their skin. From spot reducing to skin firming, these moisturisers will do so much more than just hydrate your skin. Here some of the most recommended multitasking moisturisers:
