Is moisturizing a part of your everyday skin care routine? Do you have oily skin and feel like you it’s not necessary anymore and don’t see the benefit of it? But do you know if your skin is hydrated enough? So if you plan on starting now, where do you start? How do you choose which type of moisturizer is best for you? This may seem like a lot to take in, but these are actually important questions to consider when it comes to moisturizing the skin. Keep reading to find out what is the best type of moisturizer for you.
Simply put, the best type of moisturizer is a product that has natural ingredients and has excellent hydrating properties. A good oil-free moisturizer, for example, that is infused with nutrients will make your skin reap tons of benefits.
You might already know that our skin supplies its own moisturizer from its sebaceous glands making our skin oily. But sometimes our skin overproduces this oil and can lead to pimples.
If you apply oil-free moisturizer, chances are you are balancing the levels of oil in your skin but still providing enough hydration to avoid drying out the skin.
Pro-tip: find a product that has aloe vera in it! It is known to treat sore, inflamed parts of the skin and provide hydration at the same time. It’s great for the hair, too!
Hydration is the main important factor in maintaining a youthful looking complexion, otherwise, you’ll end up with saggy, dry, aged skin because of the decrease in collagen. For those who don’t know, collagen is an important structural protein in the skin that makes the skin taut and plump.
Look for a product that can hydrate the skin and has antioxidant ingredients to help the production of collagen. And once again, choose one that is oil-free.
You can also rely on eating food rich in Vitamin C and drinking plenty of water if we’re going to talk about moisturizing and hydrating from within. Eating clean and using safe skin products that are right for you are key to achieving a healthy complexion.
We also have to remember that even a simple action like stepping foot outside of the house dries up the skin even in small quantities. Keep your oil-free moisturizer handy at all times to protect yourself from skin dehydration throughout the day. Moisturizers that are rich in nutrients will also help keep out pollutants, free radicals, and will act antioxidants.
But it is not enough to just look for something that is oil-free and nutrient infused. Look for a moisturizer that is non-comedogenic. This means that the product will not clog your pores and oil-ducts.
If you already have a moisturizer in your routine, check the label and see if you need to make the switch. An oil-free moisturizer will most likely be the best type for you!
