Choosing the Right Moisturizer

If you have dry skin, you are probably more likely to use a moisturizer regularly. However, moisturizer is a crucial skincare step for every skin type, not just dry skin.

Moisturizers do what they say – they hydrate the skin – but they also protect it from environmental damage. Water content in skin keeps it plump, smooth, and elastic, while skin that has lost its hydration will lose these qualities. This moisture loss results in dry-looking skin and, eventually, wrinkles.

For normal skin, moisturizers help maintain that healthy balance, so regularly moisturizing as part of your skincare routine is important.

People with oily skin still need moisturizing. It’s the water, not the oil, in your skin that keeps it hydrated. A full daily skincare routine is particularly important for oily skin, because oily skin needs regular cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing.

For aging skin, moisturizing is of primary importance to help restore moisture that has been lost over time and to protect it from further damage that can cause signs of aging.

The secret is to choose a moisturizer that is specifically formulated for your skin type. For example, oily skin needs a non-greasy moisturizer, dry skin needs a sealing moisturizer, and aging skin may need additional support such as a Retinol exfoliant to encourage skin cell renewal.
