Secrets About The Top Moisturizers For Dry Skin

Discover these secrets about the top moisturizers for dry skin

With winter approaching, we all know that it is time to whip out the hand lotion and chapstick in order to survive the dry months ahead. However, do not let the cold and dry weather get the best of you. If you know the truth about top moisturizers for dry skin, you will be able to avoid that telltale dry skin and chapping, keeping your skin smooth and hydrated all winter long. First off, one myth about top moisturizers for dry skin is that the thicker the consistency, the more hydrating the cream is. Wrong. If you drown your skin in lipids, dead cells can actually be trapped in skin, leaving your skin looking duller. Serums are just as good as creams but they are a lighter consistency, ideal for absorption. Read 11 Worst Face Moisturizersfor a list of moisturizers to avoid.

Many people think that taking a steamy shower prior to application of moisturizer will help hydrate the skin, but actually those hot showers can be drying on your skin, as the high temperatures can cause blood vessel dilation, resulting in water loss throughout the epidermis. Stick to a five minute shower, then moisturize right after to help the cream penetrate skin. And if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize, just go for an oil free and non comedogenic formula in order to prevent clogging of the pores. When moisturizing lips, watch out for products that contain petroleum jelly, as it creates an artificial layer over lips, causing your skin to stop producing lips. Instead, opt for a balm that is infused with natural oils or shea and cocoa butter, as these are more hydrating.
