Most moisturizers do a wonderful job all around, including your face. As you know there are many facial only products on the market for people with different needs such as sensitive skin. You may also want a more expensive lotion with more ingredients for your face that wouldn’t be cost effective to use all over.
Facial skin tends to be more delicate and lets face it, that’s what everyone sees. It needs moisturizer more often and more targeted.
The area around your eyes is another story altogether. It doesn’t have the oil glands that the rest of your skin has and this is one reason your lifestyle can have an effect here. Poor diet and lack of sleep can show easily. You will want a cream that matches the demands of your skin, especially in this area.
Oily Skin Needs Moisturizer Too
You might assume that adding moisturizer to oily skin is redundant. Some people feel that they don’t need it or that it would make them break out. The oil production tends to be a response to under hydration as the glands go into overdrive to compensate. You may find relief by using an oil free moisturizer as a preventative measure, plus it’s good for your skin.
More Than Just Moisturizer
Dry skin looks dry, dull, aged. Dead skin buildup and flaky skin can
enhance the appearance of breakouts, and signs of aging. Moisturizer reinvigorates, hydrates and plumps up the skin. Before you apply it, you may want to exfoliate the dead skin. This is part of a good skin care routine. It’s also very important to look at the products and soaps that you use on your skin so you aren’t creating more problems with chemicals or the drying of harsh soaps.
There are many different products on the market, all with the promise of perfection. You will have to do some testing to find the right mix for you but once you do, you will never look back.
