You may only be able to leave without using a moisturizer. "Not everyone needs or should use a moisturizer, especially women with oily combination or acne-prone skin!" Paula Begoun, author of Do not go to the cosmetics counter without me, writes in his website. But what if you can not let go of their favorite day and night creams? What should you be looking for when shopping for a moisturizer? According to Paula, a good moisturizer should contain emollients (essential for skin feel dry), water-binding agents (ingredients that attract water to skin and help keep it there), anti-irritants and antioxidants. For the day, must contain a well-formulated sunscreen. If you have an oily t zone area (forehead, nose and cheeks) and normal to dry skin in other parts of your face, your skin is combination. Most of us have combined skin at some point in our lives.
Use a moisturizing oil in the T zone and a light moisturizer on other areas. In order to normalize the skin may be necessary to apply two different types of products in different areas of your skin. Alternatively, you can skip the moisturizer to complete the T-zone and only moisturize the cheeks and eyes. If you have dry skin, the skin may feel dry, itchy skin and wrinkles are most evident in the skin than other skin types. Although the use of a moisturizer can help to temporarily smooth wrinkles, none of them can turn back the clock. Choose one that makes your skin look smooth and flexible.
A moisturizer is water based preferred, but not last as long as a moisturizing base. However, water-based emollients, moisturizers, such as vegetable oils and shea butter can help provide your skin with essential moisture. (Tip: Apply moisturizer on damp skin to retain moisture.) If you have sensitive skin, can have red blotches on the face and / or are easily irritated by the use of certain products. It can be difficult to find a product not aggravate the skin and cause unsightly rashes. Look for moisturizers that contain fragrances and ingredients that you know you can be potentially irritating to the skin. Even something as harmless as Aloe Vera can cause skin irritations! Sunscreens are essential for day to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. There are plenty of sunscreen on the market that hydrate the skin and protects skin from harmful sun rays. Why not skip the moisturizer and sunscreen use instead? The smaller number of products on their skin, the less likely your skin will develop an irritation to any of the ingredients.
