Best Moisturizers For Dry Skin – Introduction
Hi people! Here I am back with another article on winters. You might be thinking why am I concerned about this weather so much. So let me tell you, I am a person stuck in a body with utmost dry skin. For me, to adjust during this weather is really difficult. Moreover, I came across many people out there just like me. Hence I felt like sharing my thoughts, products that I use with you people so that you get to enjoy this season without worrying about your dry skin. My last blog was about home remedies for dry skin. And today’s article is about the BEST MOISTURIZERS FOR DRY SKIN available in market
A moisturizer is of utmost importance during this season. As the weather gets colder outside, the ways to cope up with it increases inside. Products like heaters are something we can’t live without. However, these products only increase the dryness, resulting in pulling moisture from the air and also from your skin leaving it dry and cracked. Therefore to keep the body supple, moisturized, healthy Moisturizers are really necessary.
HOW DOES A MOISTURIZER WORK?
Although I think we all know that how does a Moisturizer act as a saviour for our skin but for those who don’t know let me tell you.
It is not necessary that people with dry skins are the ones who need to worry during this weather. But the ones with normal skin too. This is so because the winter season is less humid than other seasons and it can strip moisture from the skin. As the temperature gets cool the skin tends to become itchy, cracked.
Moisturizers act as a barrier between the skin and the weather outside. It is said that it holds the moisture-tight and hydrates the skin’s outer layers. Daily use of moisturizer will not only give you a smooth skin surface but will also re-hydrate it.
How to Choose The Best Moisturizers For Dry Skin?
Now, as we know the importance of a moisturizer the question arises how to choose one. How to choose a moisturizer that fits your skin type. According to Dr Ohlhausen, “The right moisturizer can help protect your skin from dry winter air, while also re-hydrating skin and making it look and feel smoother and healthier.”
As we know there are many moisturizers put there in the market but it’s necessary that you have to choose one that’s right for your skin type and age.
Oily skin is the one which is more prone to acne. So, for such a skin type water-based, non-comedogenic (ones that won’t clog pores) are the best. Hence, a lighter hydrating lotion should be preferable.
Dry skin people are the ones who are in utter need of Moisturizers no matter what season it might be. The type of moisturizer that will be suitable for people like us should be heavy, oil-based. Products that are petroleum-based such as Vaseline, Aquaphor and Eucerin are recommended.
Even if your skin is of a normal type that is neither to dry nor too oily a Moisturizer is still necessary. For people like these a water-based moisturizer is good. Lotions with 5% to 10% Cyclomethicone, a clear, alcohol-free organic compound, are a good choice.
Again a section that I myself feel fully attached to. Along with being a victim of dry skin I also am suffering from skin sensitivity. For people like us, moisturizers that contain ingredients like aloe and chamomile are suitable.
