The key to young, supple skin is to moisturize it. Of course, you need to use the right kind, depending on your skin type and your objectives. This is a short review of moisturizer products, from lightest to heaviest.
1. Face Mist
These moisturizers are water-based, and they sometimes have vitamins and fragrance. They cannot replace a real moisturizer and instead, are best for freshening up the face.
This is also lightweight and quite absorbent, and it may also be enough to fully moisturize the skin.
This option is not as heavy as cream and will work on almost all skin types. Try out a noncomedogenic one first.
Compared to serum or lotion, it is quite thicker. It, however, packs a punch of moisture, so that you can also combine it with other products.
5. Night Cream
Compared to other creams, it does not have any tint or SPF. They also look shinier but is the right product for those with very dry and aging complexion. You can end up with dewy and supple skin after overnight application.
Oil might not be what you want to put on a greasy face, but there are some oils out there that may actually be good for the face. It is best on sensitive, aging, or dry skin.
This is a heavy moisturizer that has petroleum, but also the most moisture. Thus, it is perfect for those with very dry skin.
Know which kind of skin type you have and consult with your dermatologist to find the perfect type of moisturizer for you.
