What is the first step in the fight against wrinkles? Making sure your skin is as moisturized as possible! Since everyone’s skin is different, it is very important to choose the right type of moisturizer for your specific skin type. Here are the best types of moisturizers for oily, dry, and combination skin types:
- It kind of seems counter-intuitive to moisturize skin that already seems to have excessive moisture, but it is actually a very important part of your skincare routine. Moisturizing your face will help fight the drying effects of other oil reducing products that you might use.1 The three characteristics you want in a moisturizer for oily skin are that it is lightweight, oil-free and that it won’t clog pores your pores.1
- Moisturizing your dry skin is very important. People with dry skin need to moisturize more than any other skin types to help keep their face from becoming flaky, red, itchy or painful. If your skin is dry, opt for a moisturizer that is heavy such as a cream or oil.2 Try our PURE RADIANCE Illumination Facial Oil for that extra shot of moisture.
- If part of your face is oily, and part of your face is dry – then congratulations; you have combination skin! Sometimes this skin type can be the hardest to find products that are suitable to keep your skin looking fresh. The best type of moisturizer for combination skin may be a lightweight cream that is oil-free.3 It is also important to look for products that can multi-task. Basically, you are looking for a moisturizer that will keep you dewy without adding oil to your face.
No matter what your skin type, it is very important to look for a moisturizer that contains at least SPF 30 to try and protect yourself from sun spots, wrinkles, and of course, melanoma.1
