Choosing Moisturizers

Most of the women find that they eventually require some good moisturizers. Even if she has had oily skin all her life, in many cases, it would still be beneficial from a light moisturizer for applying after cleansing the skin. There are dozens of moisturizers available readily in the market but then which one to choose as the good one!

A woman got to think about many considerations while looking for any moisturizers. She requires thinking about the skin type, her individual skin care requirements and whether she got sensitive type of skin or something else.

Moisturizers – how are they available?

There are three basic types of moisturizers available: Gel, Lotion and Cream. Gel is the lightest formula that is followed by the lotion and finally the cream that provides the heaviest dose of moisture. Generally, the woman with advanced age uses the cream, since the there skin requires the most moisture. Also, moisturizers often have lighter formula if they are formulated for daytime use, under the makeup, with some heavier formulas for nighttimes, after deep cleansing.

Woman having normal skin, oily or normal with an oily "T-zone" (the area that covers the forehead, nose and chin) probably wants to begin with Gel-kind of moisturizer. This provides the moisture without any greasy or heavy impression. It is also a nice choice for any skin tone for daytime moisturizers, under the makeup. This is particularly important in chilly weather, when the drier, freezing air can really sap the moisture away from the skin. Woman, who lives in more arid climates like as the Southwest US, also requires being more painstaking about applying moisturizers, since the air does not contain a lot of ambient moistures.

Different moisturizers for different individuals and climates

Those women with normal or dry skin may want to try a moisturizing lotion. These will provide a heavier dose of moisture for skin that loses it more quickly. Dry skin also tends to be sensitive, so a woman will need to consider this. Fortunately, there are good moisturizers available that are fragrance-free, and designed especially for sensitive skin. A woman who knows ahead of time that her skin is dry and fussy will probably want to try one of these moisturizers first.

Women with more mature skin will likely to go for cream moisturizers. They will also be opting for the preparations that favor to make skin look more vernal and firmer. Again, this is greatly a question of individual’s requirement and how sensitive the skin they have. Some women are very sensible to the products that contain Alpha-hydroxy derivatives as well as citric acid or even ascorbic acid.

Women who go for products having Alpha-hydroxy should also be aware that they got to avoid sunlight exposure as it might cause the damage to the skin. Another modern conception in the quest for having smoother skin is the addition to the sunscreens. Many moisturizers would have sunscreen added. Many companies of foundation makeup also add sunscreens, so it might depend upon what a tolerance of the skin of the woman when she goes to select moisturizer. Some are sensitive to the sunscreens, others aren't. Nevertheless, moisturizers with sunscreen contradict the requirement for it in foundation makeup, and in opposite case, it is also a fact.

Generally, moisturizers with sunscreens are intended to be used under makeup, during the day. It is not all the time to look for some formulas that contain sunscreens while choosing a nighttime formulation.

The place – an important factor

Some women believe that only the department stores cosmetic lines carry a great quality product. However, this is not necessarily to be fact all the time. Many drugstore brands can also offer great moisturizers. In fact, some are just the drugstore lines for the departmental store product. And with the skyrocketing quality of generic brands, even the high-ticket drugstore brands often offer generic or store brand equivalents those are cheaper but contain the same effective ingredients. This is another area where the women can compare. If the drugstore brands have essentially the same ingredients list as the department store lines, one can go for the cheaper brands with confidence. Many departmental store cosmetic lines have their products’ ingredients described on their websites so it is not a bad idea to check that out.
