how to choose a right moisturizer for your skin?

Moisturizing is an essential part of any daily skincare routine. No matter what skin type you have, it is important to moisturize your face after cleansing it. This is because cleansing removes the water that your skin needs in order to stay healthy and hydrated. When skin loses moisture, it becomes less elastic and more prone to developing wrinkles. A good moisturizer will help to seal in the water and improve the skin's tone and texture, as well as cover up any imperfections.

Dry Skin
If you have dry skin, it is essential to moisturize on a daily basis. Without moisturizer, your skin may become itchy, tight, flaky, or even peel. To soothe and revive dry skin, use an oil-based, heavier, and richer moisturizer to trap moisture inside your skin.

Oily Skin
Most people with oily skin think that moisturizer is superfluous to them. However, oily skin type needs moisturizer just as much as dry skin. It is because when your skin is dry, it will start to trigger oil production to balance it out. You should look for water-based moisturizers that are oil-free and non-comedogenic. Oil-free moisturizer gives your skin sufficient moisture without extra shine while moisturizer that labeled non-comedogenic would not cause clogged pores.

Combination Skin
Treating combination skin effectively can be tricky since different areas of the face require different types of moisturizers. For best results, choose an oil-based, heavier moisturizer for areas where the skin is dry, and a water-based, oil-free moisturizer for oily zones such as the T-zone. To make things simpler, apply Clinelle Moisture Glow to the nose, chin, and forehead, and Clinelle PureSwiss Hydracalm Moisturizer to other areas. It may be time-consuming and costly, but your skin will thank you for it.

Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin, you should be very careful when choosing a moisturizer. Opt for a moisturizer that is designed for sensitive skin and that is gentle, oil-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic. In addition, avoid a moisturizer that contains potential allergens, such as fragrances and artificial coloring, that can cause irritation to your skin. Most sensitive skin types advantage from basic moisturizers without tons of added chemicals. The more ingredients inside a moisturizer, the higher the chance that the moisturizer will cause havoc on your skin.

One should take care to remember that their skin type may be subject to change due to various factors. Consequently, the type of moisturizer one uses may also need to be changed over time. In addition, the amount of moisturizer required by skin can also be impacted by seasonal and environmental changes. For example, a thicker moisturizer such as Clinelle WhitenUp Night Cream may be necessary for skin regeneration at night, while a lighter moisturizer with SPF protection like Clinelle WhitenUp Day Cream with SPF20 may be desired for daytime use.
