Of all the skin types, moisture is held in the highest demand by dry skin. So, if you happen to have dry skin, your beauty kit should certainly contain an effective moisturising cream or lotion. Moisturisers play an important role in rehydrating the skin. They also contain additional vitamins that help in the repair of injured skin cells. Dry skin is brought to normalcy by moisturisers.
Various kinds of moisturisers are made available in beauty shops. Make sure that the moisturiser of your choice is the one that suits your skin type the most. There are moisturisers that should be applied on the hands as well. A heavy-duty moisturizer for the hands contains a good amount of humectant such as glycerol. Under normal conditions, this moisturiser would be too heavy for use on the face and it is advisable to go for lighter versions. A cosmetic moisturizer is one that promotes skin hydration and contains a small amount of water and humectant. It will be blended with appropriate oils and transformed to a liquid or cream. Night creams generally belong to this category. Younger people should keep away from applying strong moisturisers on their face. When compared to older people their skin will have natural tendency to retain water since sebum production is higher.
Specialized moisturisers mainly include those that offer protection from ultraviolet radiation of the sun. They also contain required ingredients for hydration and exfoliation. Such sunscreen moisturisers, if applied daily (not merely when you go out to the beach) will reduce the damages caused by intensive heat.
Moisturises has the capacity to make changes on your skin surface. When you apply a plain oil-in-water emulsion that consist of glycerol it will pacify the squames and will result in the swelling of stratum corneum. As a result of this action, the skin surface will get a soothing effect. Thus moisturisers result in giving a positive lift to your looks.
