3 Tricks for Using & Picking Moisturizers, Manhattan, New York

Moisturizer is vital to any skin care routine. When applied properly, it helps the skin stay supple and hydrated. It also helps prevent flaking and chapping from dry weather. While applying the product might seem straightforward, there are many ways to boost its effectiveness. 

How to Moisturize for the Best Results

1. Choose Products Carefully

When choosing a moisturizer, read the ingredients list to make sure it has humectants. These are key to helping the skin absorb the product. Humectants to look for include glycerin and salicylic acid.

Occlusives, including petroleum jelly, also provide skin care benefits. While humectants draw moisture to the skin, occlusives help the body to retain it. 

2. Apply to Damp Skin

skin careMoisturizers don’t inject moisture, just trap water. To reap their benefits, apply them to damp skin. Try applying them right after drying off from the shower, ideally within three minutes. This will allow your skin to absorb the moisture before it can evaporate. Keep in mind that if your skin is overly wet, the product will slide right off.

3. Add it to All Areas

Other parts of the body are also prone to wrinkles. To make the most of your moisturizer, apply it to your shoulders, neck, chest, and hands.

However, don’t use products that are intended for the body on your face. These are thicker and can clog your pores or cause skin irritation. Products meant for the face are safe for all areas.
