Skin Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in a skincare routine. No matter what skin type you have, a moisturizer is an essential product to have. However, it can be quite difficult to find a product that works for you and suits your skin type. Proper hydration through moisturization is the key to glowing and healthy-looking skin.
What are the different types of moisturizers available?
One moisturizer will not suit all of us. Therefore, it is important to know about the different types of moisturizers. The moisturizer you use should depend upon your skin type and should also cater to any skin problems you might be suffering from. The right moisturizer can do wonders for your skin and any other problems. There are different types of moisturizers available in the market and to make an informed decision, you should know more about the various types:
Lotions and Lightweight Moisturizers:Lightweight moisturizers are great for daily use as they get absorbed in the skin quickly. Lotions are generally easy to spread and apply. They are different from other types of moisturizers as they are water-based and have a runny consistency. It works best as a day time moisturizing agent as they don’t make your skin feel oily and sticky. Lotions help in providing the optimum moisturization during the day.
Moisturizing Creams:Moisturizing creams are a great product to use during the harsh winter months. They also work best for people with dry skin as the oil to water ratio is maintained. Due to this, the texture of the creams is much thicker. They take time to get absorbed into the skin and provide more moisturization. Moisturizing creams are perfect for people with normal to dry skin and work best during the day as well as night hours.

Oil-Free Moisturizers:These types of moisturizers work exactly like the way normal moisturizers work. A barrier is created over the skin to lock in the moisture and keep it hydrated. Oil-free moisturizers work best for people with combination and oily skin. These moisturizers contain humectants that pull the moisture from the air and help keep the skin hydrated.
Gel Moisturizers:Gel Moisturizers are well suited for oily and acne-prone skin as they don’t contain oil. These are extremely lightweight and work great in summer months. These provide sufficient hydration to the skin and also help in soothing inflamed skin.
Serums:Even though Serums are not moisturizers, they fulfill the same function. Using serums daily can help your skin stay hydrated and healthy.
How to use moisturizers?
Even though there is no specific way to use moisturizers, there are certain tips that you can follow to get the best results.
Use a moisturizer right after washing your face:Clean your face using a mild face wash to remove any dirt and unwanted substances from your face. After patting your skin dry, take a liberal amount of your moisturizer, and apply all over your face. Using a moisturizer right after washing your face will prevent your skin from getting dry.
Use a lightweight moisturizer in the morning and a heavy moisturizer at night:By using a lightweight moisturizer in the morning, you provide your skin with sufficient hydration. However, during the night, your skin needs proper moisturization to keep from drying out. Using thick, oil-based creams and serums at night, right before going to bed, would be best for your skin. This serum will help your skin look young and healthy. It is lightweight and will get easily absorbed into your skin. With ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and White Lotus, the serum helps in reducing signs of aging and provides firmness and elasticity to the skin.
Moisturize your face if you are breaking out:Most people skip using a moisturizer when they see their skin breaking out. This causes even more damage to your skin. If you stop moisturizing your skin and take away the hydration, your skin will dry out and could lead to even more breakouts.
Moisturize before applying makeup:Your makeup products could contain ingredients that could dehydrate your skin. A moisturizer not only creates a barrier between the makeup products and your skin but also keeps it sufficiently hydrated.
Depending on your skin type, how do skin moisturizers work?
Dry Skin:It is advisable to use an oil-based moisturizer which gives you proper hydration. You should look for ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, and Glycerin in your moisturizer. These ingredients will help soothe dry skin and retain moisture content.
Oily Skin:It is important to choose the right moisturizer for people with oily skin. Use a lightweight but good moisturizer to keep your face hydrated. This will help in controlling the excess production of oil by your glands. Oil-free moisturizers would work best for you. You can also use gel moisturizers if you have extremely oily skin.
Combination Skin:If you have combination skin, you can use two different types of moisturizers to suit the different skin regions of your face. Use an oil-free moisturizer for the oily part and an oil-based moisturizer for the dry part.
Sensitive Skin:People with sensitive skin tend to prefer natural products which do not have any artificial ingredients and fragrances. You should look for all-natural products to suit your sensitive skin.
