There are a couple of things to keep in mind when picking a moisturizer, otherwise you run the risk of drying your skin or causing irritation. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. If you like the outdoors (and you should, because it’s great) you should pick a moisturizer with an SPF rating. It saves you from having to remember a separate sunscreen when you go outside, and takes less time than applying two products.
2. Avoid scented moisturizers. Most scented moisturizers use artificial scenting that can be harsh on your skin. Not to mention, if you wear perfume (don’t get me started, I love perfume!) the scents can clash and you end up with a mess instead of a nice scent from the perfume. Not so good.
3. Shea better is a great thing to have in moisturizer. In addition to feeling great, it goes deeper than the surface to moisturize for a longer period of time. I can’t say enough good things about it. You want it.
It’s best to moisturize right when you get out of the shower, so your skin stays moisturized throughout the day. Many people rub their skin harshly with a towel to dry off. It’s best to pat yourself dry to prevent irritation.
If you use toner, make sure to apply toner before you apply moisturizer. There are plenty of articles around that tell you what your entire skin care routine should be, but make sure that it includes cleansing, toning, and moisturizing for the best results.
