We believe that the earlier you begin moisturising your skin, the better condition it will be in later on in life. That’s why we use Guinot Creme Hydra Beaute – Long-Lasting Moisturizing Cream 100ml.
This is a moisturiser for dehydrated skin which restores your skin’s natural protective film that protects against environmental aggressors. For our skin, which is dry, it is the perfect moisturising solution.
Moisturising has a huge number of benefits. It can prevent and treat dry skin. It can protect sensitive skin. It can mask imperfections and it can improve skin tone and texture.
It can also form a protective layer on the skin that can protect from the harmful rays of the sun, wind and other environmental aggressors.
Thanks to EarlyCare.org, we look at some tips when applying moisturiser.
When and how to use a moisturiser?
- You should apply a moisturiser immediately after drying your skin after cleansing. As the skin is still moist, moisturiser will penetrate in the skin surface properly.
- Apply moisturiser onto your hands every time you wash them.
- After you have finished cleansing your face with the appropriate cleanser for your skin type you must immediately apply a suitable moisturiser. If you leave it too long in moisturising your face, the moisture can evaporate taking your skin’s natural moisture with it.
- You can even apply it as a protective base for make-up. A light consistency moisturiser holds the make-up for a longer period.
Which moisturiser to use?
There are end numbers of moisturisers available in the market and not all products are suitable for your skin. It is important to find out the right moisturiser for yourself depending upon many factors like your skin type, your age and whether you are suffering from specific skin conditions like acne, pimple, and eczema and so on. To choose the perfect moisturizer for yourself, consider the following guideline:
Normal skin: This type of skin is neither too dry nor too oily. In order to maintain the natural moisture balance of the skin, it is recommended to use a water-based moisturizer having light and non-greasy feeling.
Dry skin: For those having dry skin type must choose a moisturizer that helps to restore moisture to the skin. It is better to use a oil-based moisturizer that contains moisturizing ingredients or petrolatum-based products. Such products will help keep your skin hydrated.
Oily skin: Acne is a common problem for those having oily skin. Though oily in nature, you need to apply a suitable moisturizer on your oily skin. Do fot forget to apply a light moisturizer after using skin care products that can remove oil and dry out the skin.
Sensitive skin: Those having sensitive skin must use a moisturizer that contains soothing ingredients such as chamomile or aloe vera. Make sure the product does not contain fragrances or dyes or acids.
Mature skin: As you age, your skin tends to become drier as the oil-producing glands become less active. To keep your skin soft and well hydrated, opt for an oil-based moisturizer that contains petrolatum as the base, along with antioxidants to combat age related skin problems like wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and so on.
