Why Moisturizing Should be an Essential Step of Your Skincare Regime?


Differentiating the skin type is the initial step before you start any skincare schedule. Whether you have dry or oily or combination skin, moisturizing is a must when it comes to proper skin care.

Oily skin needs more security from natural elements like bright lights, pollution, and so forth. So it is important to keep it clean, healthy, and moisturized every day to prevent premature aging and keep it spotless. Applying a moisturizer each day will keep up the skin’s solid cells and keep them from getting aggravated.

  • Hydrated skin versus Oily skin

The oil on the skin, known as sebum, is discharged by sebaceous organs to help keep up the barrier capacity of the skin. Skin hydration alludes to the skin’s epidermis and dermis absorbing water, making the skin plump and glowing. Extreme emission of sebum causes acne and oily skin, usually seen around the T-zone. This doesn’t imply that the skin is very much hydrated. Oily skin actually should be moisturized to be hydrated. Moisturizers help control the creation of excess sebum as well.

  • How to keep away from breakouts?

Cleaning excessively to prevent sebum and acne can act the opposite by triggering your skin’s barrier function and resulting in more oil production and breakouts.

  • What are the various kinds of moisturizers?

Humectant-based creams are appropriate for a wide range of skin. A humectant draws dampness from the air helps with binding water on the surface of the skin, keeping the skin hydrated. Such lotions are lightweight and get absorbed rapidly. Search for these properties in moisturizers- Hyaluronic acid, glycerin, nectar, aloe vera, sodium lactate, sorbitol, and urea.

  • Occlusive based creams

They are thicker in consistency and ideal for dry skin. These are moisture sealers that create a hydrophobic layer on the skin and prevent the evaporation of water. Go for properties like olive oil, mineral oil, beeswax, lanolin, paraffin, and petrolatum.

  • Emollient based creams

Emollients are typically found in cream textures and are incredible for dry, normal, and combination skin. Search for ingredients like silicone, lanolin, shea butter, grape seed oils, ceramides, and rosehip.

  • Purchasing the proper moisturizer for oily skin

Search for these terms on the back of your items: oil-free, water-based, non-comedogenic (doesn’t obstruct pores, prevents zits and whiteheads, and non-acnegenic (doesn’t cause skin inflammation). Look for ingredients like Dimethicone, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, retinol, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, hazelnut oil, and salicylic acid (particularly suggested for inflammation and acne-prone skin).

  • Application

Apply on damp skin after cleansing and toning your face and neck for healthy and hydrated skin.

Master tip: Take an opportunity to pick the correct sort of cream. Counsel a dermatologist when required.
