No matter what your skin type is, making sure to use a moisturizer on a daily basis not only prevents dry skin, but helps with aging, acne and your natural moisture balance.
There are many moisturizers on the market but being aware of the characteristics of your skin type can help you make a better decision. Your skin type probably falls in one of these categories:
Normal skin – It’s better to use a moisturizer that’s more lightweight and nongreasy, to maintain your skins balanced moisture.
Dry skin – Soak moisture back into dry skin with heavier, oil-based lotions, this will hair keep your skin hydrated.
Oily skin – look for moisturizers that are water based, and labeled non-comedogenic, therefore it won’t clog pores.
Sensitive skin – Be aware of products that include allergens, like fragrances of dyes, since this skin type is more likely to get irritation and redness.
Mature skin – Remember that as you age your skin slowly loses its ability to produce oil, so keep that in mind when finding products that can combat this.
The next step is putting the effort in to try out what exactly works for you. This is going to require some experimenting, weighing the added benefits, such as sun protection. Adding this to your routine means applying moisturizers optimal times, which is after bathing, and before enduring cold weather.
The weather is getting colder, so don’t forget how important it is to take care of your skin.
