Grand Rapids, Mich (WOTV) - Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in any skin care routine. It can help clear up acne, hydrate dry skin and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles. But it can be difficult trying to decide which moisturizer is right for your skin type. At Plastic Surgery Associates this is what we recommend.
Skin guard against Sun - No matter what skin type you have, we always recommend getting a moisturizer with a sunscreen of at least SPF 15. If you’re getting it for your face, look for one that is oil- and fragrance-free and has an SPF of 30.
A few Great Picks: Anthelios SX from LaRoche-Posey, Intellishade made by Revisions, or Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 from SkinCeutials
Use a Lightweight Moisturizer for Oily Skin - Just because you have oily skin does not mean you should avoid using moisturizer. A lightweight moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated without making it feel greasy. A Great Pick: or COQ10 Facial Cream from the PSA Premier Skin Care line.
Use a Heavy Moisturizer for Dry Skin- If you have dry skin, you will have to use a heavier, oil-based moisturizer. This type of moisturizer will really help hydrate your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. A Great Pick: Emollience from SkinCeutials or Nutritic from LaRoche-Posay
Sensitive skin- Choose a hypoallergenic and fragrance-free moisturizer, with very less ingredients, say less than 10. Fewer ingredients mean less chance of harmful interactions with delicate skin. Great Picks: Hydrating Plus Barrier from the PSA Premier Skin Care line or Toleriane Facial Fluid from LaRoche-Posey.
To Fight Aging, Focus Moisturizing Around Your Eyes- Moisturizing becomes even more important when your skin shows signs of aging. When you moisturize aging skin, make sure to focus on the area around your eyes. Doing this will reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and give your skin a bright appearance. Great Picks: AOX Eye Gel from SkinCeutials or the Eye Trio Plus from the PSA Premier Skin Care Line.
Use a Firming Lotion for Weight Loss- If you are in the process of losing weight, you need to make sure your skin follows your body's path. If you don't, your skin will look very loose and unattractive. A firming lotion can prevent stretch marks and tighten your skin as you lose weight. Great Picks: A.G.E. Interrupter from SkinCeutials or maybe Necktifirm from Revisions
Using the right moisturizer for your skin type will do wonders for your skin. Make sure to moisturize your skin a couple of times a day for the best results. Avoid moisturizers that might contain colorings and perfumes.
