Don't Be Afraid to Hydrate Your Skin
Best Skin Moisturizers Stonington CT and Westerly RI
Most skin types need moisturizing -- though the degree and type of moisturizing varies tremendously depending on your skin type, age, travel patterns, and climate.
- Mature skin gets drier--we lose the fats and lipids in our skin cell walls--making our skin cells less stable and cohesive--more prone to drying out with drier and colder weather, harsh cleansers or skin products, medications, and other factors.
- Oily skin may need very little moisturizing. A small amount of an oil free moisturizer may keep a good balance--avoiding looking shiny.
The most effective moisturizer and barrier repair creams for very dry skin should contain the combination of ceramides, cholesterols, and fatty acids (palmitate and linoleate) in the specific ratio of 3:1:1.
