For the purpose of softening dry skin, cleansers and moisturizers are the most important. A skin moisturizer works by containing the moisture from outer layers of the skin and getting out the moisture from the inner layers.
Finding the Skin Moisturizer For You !
Follow these guidelines and be prepared for a trial and error phase.
- Figure out the first few ingredients. Look for common active ingredients, such as lanolin, glycerin, or petrolatum.
- Use Sunscreen everyday. Protecting your skin from harmful sun damage is one of the best things you can do to keep your skin looking beautiful, so buy a moisturizer with a sun protection factor of 30 or above.
- Take a moisturizer based on your skin type. As the skin on your face is thinner and more sensitive, it is a good idea to use a different moisturizer on your face than you do on your body. If you are aware that you have sensitive skin, it’s always a good idea to look for a moisturizer labeled hypoallergenic. If you have oily skin, go with a light and oil-free moisturizer. If you have dry skin, find something thicker. And if you have combination skin, go with a lighter moisturizer for in general and dot drier areas with a richer cream.
