With summer long behind us and colder, drier air on its way, it’s time to reassess your skincare regimen. Perhaps you’re considering using a heavier moisturizer during the dry winter months, or perhaps you need something that is light and gentle due to sensitive skin. Here are some helpful tips for selecting the best moisturizer for your skin type.
Normal, Oil-Prone or Combination Skin
Most people have normal or oil-prone skin, and many have a combination of both. This skin type requires a moisturizer that is fast-absorbing and non-comedogenic (which means it won’t clog pores). At the same time, it must contain the necessary ingredients to help restore damaged skin cells while hydrating and softening skin. The best moisturizer available for this skin type is Theraderm Peptide Hydrator. It uses hyaluronic acid to attract up to 1000 times its own weight in moisture, and it is infused with soluble keratin peptides. It also uses extracts from cucumbers, green tea leaves, grape seeds and chamomile flowers to calm and soothe skin inflammation while providing the necessary ingredients your skin needs.
Dry or Mature Skin
Many of you already suffer from dry skin, making it that much more important to care for your skin during the drier winter months. It is best to look for a more emollient oil-based moisturizer which uses a premium-grade lanolin (a natural substance produced by sheep’s wool to protect their coat) to restore your skin’s natural lipid barrier, which is essential for keeping moisture in and preventing dryness. Your best option for this is Theraderm Enriched Facial Moisturizer, which is not only ideal for dry skin, but mature skin as well.
Tip from Dr. Beckman:
To create a smooth surface for better results from moisturizers and anti-aging products, use Theraderm Fruit Acid Exfoliant.
Sensitive or Acne-Prone Skin
If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, you’ll want to use a gentle, lightweight moisturizer that is non-comedogenic and made without ingredients that could irritate your skin, such as parabens, dyes or fragrances. The best solution is to use a water-based moisturizer such as Theraderm Gentle Facial Moisturizer. This product not only replenishes moisture levels to restore softness and suppleness to your skin, but it also delivers moisture-rich ingredients directly to your skin’s cell layers.
Once you select the perfect moisturizer for your skin type, remember to moisturize regularly. This is essential for protecting your skin and keeping it blemish- and wrinkle-free. What’s your skin type? Let us know in the comments below.
