Use moisturizers as part of your daily skin regimen for a healthy, fresh look. Take into account the consistency, your skin type, and beneficial ingredients.
Consistency: For oily skin, a light lotion is a good choice, while you'll need an ointment to lock in moisture with dry skin. For normal skin, stick to a cream, which hydrates your skin but is thinner than an ointment. A thin moisturizer is better for the daytime while a thicker one is better at night, providing deeper hydration.
Skin type: Choose an oil-free moisturizer for oily and acne-prone skin. Look for a hypoallergenic moisturizer for sensitive skin. Dry skin needs a moisturizer that retains hydration so look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and mineral oil.
Beneficial ingredients: Combat the sun's rays for younger-looking skin with a built-in SPF. Fight free radicals with the inclusion of antioxidants.
