Moisturizing Tips for Every Type of Skin
A daily skin care routine is the best way to keep your skin radiant and healthy. Even though every step is important, there are people that have oily or combination skin and that feel it is unnecessary to moisturize. Nevertheless, this is a grave mistake because moisturizing is actually what helps keep your skin hydrated, supple, and strong.
Everyone, no matter what skin type, needs to moisturize daily. Moisture refers to your skin's water content and not its lipid content. In other words, having dry or oily skin has nothing to do with dryness.
Fortunately, there is a product for every skin type whether you are simply moisturizing dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin.
Moisturizing Combination Skin
Combination skin is made up of a mix of dry skin and oily skin, which means that it requires products that are specially designed for it. You can also try a product for dry skin if you have more dry patches or a product for oily skin if you have more oily areas.
Oily Skin Can be moisturized with Light Products
People with oily skin should stay away from oil-based products. Instead, they should try water-based formulas which are light enough to be absorbed quickly without leaving behind pore clogging residue.
Just as done while treating dry skin, you should apply your moisturizer before your skin is completely dry. Don't forget that skin dryness is affected by a lack of moisture and not a lack of oil.
Even though there are a lot of products out there for dry skin, it can still be a challenge to find the right one for you. First of all you need to determine whether you have regular dry skin or very dry skin. This will help determine the type of product you need.
If you have dry skin then you'll need to use a creamy moisturizer after you've cleansed. Part of your basic routine will require you to moisturize at least twice a day. If you feel that your skin becomes taut during the day, reapply moisturizer when needed.
If your skin still feels taut even after you apply a creamy moisturizer, it may be time for oil. You can decide to use a mineral oil, body oil or olive oil. Remember to apply sunscreen if you are going to be outdoors as these products do not contain SPF.
A benefit of using an oil is that they absorb more quickly into the skin than do creams. This is one of the reasons that they are more effective for people with very dry skin. In fact, they can also be used on people with dry, sensitive skin because they contain very little additives.
BIOSKINBALM is an excellent skin care product that contains snail serum and provides a soothing sensation for dry skin care and overall dry skin relief. These ingredients are also what help make BIOSKINBALM ideal for all skin types.
