How to choose the Best Moisturizer

As you all should know, moisturize our body and face is very important  to be able to look and feel healthy. Dermatologists suggest to carry a good moisturizer with SPF  in it with you. Moisturizers not only can help us to keep our skin hydrated, they prevent wrinkles as well .

How to choose the best moisturizer for your skin?

I particularly feel distrust about moisturizers. Maybe it’s because I’m not sure how to choose the best moisturizer for my skin type.

I have normal skin, more like oily than dry. But I don’t know why, every time I apply a moisturizer to my skin, it tends to become oily, does it happen to you? I also feel like my acne gets worse. I feel like they all leave my face shiny, greasy and sticky.

I know that is happening because I’m not using a correct moisturizer. I’m sure that even if you have oily skin, you should moisturized your face. You just need to find an oil free moisturizer, to prevent adding extra oil to your face. Also, it would be very helpful if you find one with natural ingredients, like  avocado, jojoba, almond, honey, shea butter, or aloe.

How to apply your moisturizer, and when?

You should use your moisturizer in the mornings, after you clean your face and before your makeup. In the mornings, I fill the sink with very hot water, lean my head over it,  and place a towel over my head to let my skin absorb all the vapor for my pores to open.

After that, I use an exfoliating cream to eliminate all the dirt and dead skin. Then I rinse my face with cold water and apply the moisturizer.

The last moisturizer I had was a L’Oreal and I didn’t like it at all. That’s the reason why I’m trying to get the right one for my skin type. I have been looking and reading a lot, and I have found some very good candidates that I would like to try on me.

Please if you have any suggestions, feel free to write them in the comments. I’ll really appreciate it.
