With all of the facial moisturizers sold in stores, it is hard to find the one that suits your needs best. Not every facial moisturizer works for everyone.
We all have different skin types and we need to find a facial moisturizer that matches out skin type. Everyone has individual skin problems. Selecting the wrong facial moisturizer may actually do more harm than good.
Here are some tips to help you find the right facial moisturizer for your skin type, complexion and skin problems.
If your skin is naturally dry, the first thing you think of is buying a moisturizer to relieve the dryness. Your thought process is that if something is dry, it must need some moisture.
While this is true, you have to make sure that you are adding the correct type of moisture. With all of the different moisturizer products on the market, it can be difficult to find the one that provides your skin with the right balance of moisture.
To find the right facial moisturizer, the first thing you need to do is figure out what your skin type is. You may know that your skin gets dry in the winter and oily in the summer. Knowing this, you should purchase a moisturizer for each season. What works in the winter will more than likely not work during the summer.
If you have oily skin, you may wonder why you even need a moisturizer. I mean, your skin is already oily and you may even have some acne because of your oily skin. However, you still need a moisturizer. If you have oily skin then you will need to find a moisturizer that is oil free. If your skin suffers from breakouts, then you will need to make sure that there are no irritants in the moisturizer, such as perfumes. It is best to stick with a natural moisturizer.
People who do not suffer from acne may benefit from natural moisturizers as well. These moisturizers are fragrance, chemical and toxin free. Ingredients such as these can cause normally healthy skin to become dry.
People who have naturally dry skin should stay away from facial moisturizers that include exfoliating products such as retinol. While it is beneficial to exfoliate the skin, over cleansing the skin can cause skin problems just the same.
