BEAUTY - Skin Moisturizers
Water plays a vital role in making the skin soft and smooth. Moisturizers provide a protective film of water over skin and also prevent the moisture loss of the skin. It also helps speed up the process of cell renewal. It must have the ingredients that supply vitamins, minerals to the skin and boost the natural waterproofing of the skin and soothe the skin by its natural surface oils.
Moisture loss in the skin takes place due to exposure to sun, dry wind, and living in air conditioned rooms etc. Moisture is also preserving the skin from the climatic variations. In dry skin, application of water alone is not the solution and oil is equally essential to moisturize the skin. Moisturizers are therefore combine water and oil and classified in to two main type viz. oil-in-water emulsions and water-in-oil emulsions. Apply moisturizer to your hands and body as needed, immediately after bathing. You may need to try several brands with varying ingredients before you find one most suitable.
Generally moisturizers are not used for oily skins because they can cause spots. Today safe synthetic chemical moisturizers are available with out containing any mineral oil, vegetable oil or animal oil/fat but adding either modified oils or synthetic ingredients and such products can be used on oily skin.
