Moisturizers for various skin types


There are four different skin types: dry skin, oily skin, combination skin and normal skin. For each of these skin types there are a lot of skin care products that are made especially for these types of skin. Below I will show you which of these moisturizers to use depending on your skin type. 

For oily skin 

For this type of skin you should always use gel moisturizers because they help balance out the excessive shininess. They are created with water-based formulas so they can hydrate the skin. They are good for acne-prone skin because gel moisturizers have non-comedogenic properties. What are those? 

Non-comedogenic beauty products do tend to clog pores. So if you have oily skin you should buy them. 

For dry skin 

For this type of skin you should use cream moisturizers because the contain lipid and oil-based formulas. Creams moisturizers hydrate and fortify the skin's exterior barrier. 

For Combination skin

If your skin has oily areas and dry areas then you have a combination skin. 

For this type of skin it is best to use gel-cream products because these products contain both cream and gel components. 

For normal skin 

This type of skin isn't dry or oily so you can use gel or lotion creams. Gel moisturizers add luminosity and lotion moisturizers hydrate and nourish the skin.  

And that is all! You have reached the end of this article. I hope it is of help to you dear ladies. Do not forget that you should have a beauty routine when it comes to your skin health. More about this on a future article.
