What Do the Best Moisturizers Contain?
A good moisturizer’s ingredients can be approached in several ways. It depends on your skin type, skin condition (yes, the two should not be confused!) and of course on your wallet. And when it comes to moisturizing, here are the basic rules...
#1 Use products that contain water-binding agents
Without these, a moisturizer would not be… well, a moisturizer. By these agents we mean ingredients that dissolve in water and help skin retain moisture. One of its biggest groups is the Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) , which are already found in skin. If you find hyaluronic acid and its other forms, glycerin, urea, amino acids or lactic acid written on the label, then you’ve found the right product.
#2 Look for emollients
Emollients are oil-soluble and oil-like ingredients that work on the skin surface and prevent water evaporation. The drier your skin is, the more emollients it needs. Skin-identical lipids, namely ceramides, cholesterol and vegetable oils are all considered emollients that hydrate and nourish the skin very well.
If some of the above ingredients are already written on the label of a moisturizer, then it’s worth buying. Besides these, there are several ingredients that can make your moisturizer more effective. And best of all: it’s for all skin types!
Needless to say, they’re the most important ingredients of conscious beauty and skin-care routine. It has both natural and synthetic forms, but essentially, they are the ingredients that really fight against harmful environmental toxins and free radicals that make you age faster. Since there are countless different types of harmful oxidations and free radicals, here it is recommended to follow the “more is sometimes more” principle – and this will cover many areas of anti-aging. And pssst… did you know that jars are not really suitable for storing creams with antioxidants? The reason for this is that antioxidants break down and lose effect when they come in contact with air and light.
#4 Skin-Soothing Ingredients
Skin sensitivity, puffiness, pain, itching and redness– you can find the cure for all of these in a moisturizer. Adenosine, allantoin, aloe vera, green tea, licorice extract and chamomile flower extract can also be used. They are mandatory for sensitive or rosacea skin.
As emphasized above: read diligently.
If your skin is dry, it’s important to look for emollient-rich products, while in case of normal skin type, you can practically choose any moisturizer.
If you have a combination skin, then opt for lighter, gel-like creams or gel-creams, while with oily skinlook for an extra-light texture.
It should also be noted - as already highlighted at facial skincare – that even though you have oily skin, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need to moisturize. So in order to balance it again, it’s essential to use targeted ingredients in skincare.
