Hydrated skin is glowing skin, and moisturizing is important no matter your skin type. Hydration keeps our skin looking youthful, plump and smooth, so you never want to miss this step in your routine. But could using the wrong moisturizer make your skin worse? It’s time to evaluate and make sure you’re using a moisturizer that will give you maximum benefits.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE A MOISTURIZER SUITED TO YOUR SKIN TYPE
Knowing your skin type helps you to understand exactly the type of hydration your skin needs. Choosing the wrong formula could result in clogged pores or dry skin and having the right moisturizer can see your skin thrive.
Dry skin types lack oil as their sebum production is lower compared to other skin types. Creamy, rich oil-based moisturizers are best for those with dry skin. Oils such as Rosehip, Macadamia Nut, Sunflower and Avocado Oils provide essential fatty acids and antioxidants that deeply nourish, hydrate and lock in moisture. Our Hydrating Moisturizer is the go-to daily moisturizer for dry or dull skin.
Sensitive skin types should avoid moisturizers with synthetic fragrances and harsh chemicals that can cause irritation. Choose products with gentle, calming and soothing active ingredients such as Lavender, Chamomile, Aloe Vera & Avocado Oil like our Soothing Moisturizer. Remember to always patch test new products.
Never skip a moisturiser just because you feel that your skin is too oily or blemish prone. When your skin is dehydrated, it can result in an overproduction of sebum, meaning more oil. Using the right moisturizer is key. Opt for a lightweight moisturizer that can control excess oil while still providing hydration like our Purifying Moisturizer!
Tip: Try mixing it up—use Purifying Moisturizer in areas prone to breakouts, Soothing Moisturizer on sensitive patches &/or Hydrating Moisturizer on drier zones of the face.
WHEN SEASONS CHANGE
You also may want to change your moisturizer to suit your climate, travel or a sudden change in season. During the summer months you may wish to opt for a lightweight moisturizer if your skin tends to get oilier from the heat or in winter, opt for a heavier, creamy moisturizer.
As we age our skin’s ability to hold water and produce collagen decreases so it’s important to use a moisturizer that is rich, hydrating ingredients that address fine lines and wrinkles.
Choose the right moisturizer for that glowing complexion.
