Moisturizing every Type of Skin
The best way to keep your skin radiant and healthy is by maintaining a daily skin care routine. Even though every step is important, there are people that have oily or combination skin and that feel it is unnecessary to moisturize. However, this is a grave misconception as moisturizing keeps 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 are products for every skin type whether you are moisturizing dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin.
Moisturizing Combination Skin - Easier than you Think
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 and use a product made for dry skin if you have more dry patches or a product made for oily skin if you have more oily areas.
Oily Skin Can be moisturized with Light Products
Stay away from oil-based products if you have oily skin. Instead they should try using water-based formulas. These products are light and absorb quickly without leaving behind pore clogging residue.
As with dry skin, you should always remember to 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.
There are probably more products out there for dry skin than for the other skin types, but it can still be a challenge to find the right one for you. First of all you need to determine what type of dry skin you have: regular dry skin or very dry skin. This is the only way you can determine the right type of product for your skin care needs.
If you have dry skin then you'll need to use a creamy moisturizer after you've cleansed. Once you've discovered which moisturizer you need, you'll need to moisturize at least twice a day. If you feel that your skin becomes taut during the day, do not hesitate to reapply as needed.
If your skin still feels taut even after you apply a creamy moisturizer, it may be time for oil. You can use a mineral oil, body oil or a non-comedogenic edible oil (like olive oil). Don't forget to apply sunscreen if you are going to be outdoors.
An advantage to using oil is that it will absorb more quickly than creams. This is one of the reasons that they are more effective for people with very dry skin. They can also be better for people with dry, sensitive skin as they contain very little additives.
BIOSKINBALM is an excellent skin care product that contains Helix aspersa muller extract. This product is perfect for dry skin care because its natural mix of ingredients helps provide overall dry skin relief. These ingredients are also what make BIOSKINBALM a perfect cream for all skin types.
