Moisturizer acts as a protective barrier for your skin, keeping it hydrated and healthy. While there tends to be some confusion about the need for a moisturizer in the first place, most experts recommend using it on a daily basis.
Benefits of Natural Moisturisers
Moisturising the skin should be a daily ritual. In a perfect world our skin would not need moisturising but outside forces change this.
So what do we need to look for in a moisturiser that suits your skin?
* Oils to nourish
* Hydrators to hold moisture in the skin
* Rejuvenating ingredients to help reduce lines and wrinkles
* Essential fatty acids that mimic our own oils to increase skin health
Dry skin needs a higher oil content in the cream.
Combination skin with an oily t-zone needs less oil but still requires some oil and hydrators (humectants) to supply and retain moisture.
Oily skin can work well with special formulations that supply moisturising in an oil free form which keep skin hydrated without oiliness.
We hear the term “dehydrated” skin used constantly by sales assistants on cosmetic counters. All skin types can be dehydrated and this can be caused by different factors.
Dehydrated skin is lacking in moisture (water) – not oil. Often dehydration can be remedied simply by drinking more water. Each cup of coffee, tea or alcohol consumed will dehydrate your skin. A glass of water is required to offset each cup you drink of these beverages. Followed with a good quality natural moisturiser that not only hydrates your skin well but also free from all toxic chemicals like parabens ,phthalates , mineral oils , synthetic fragrances .
