Moisturizer is a word that most people are familiar with and a product that most use in some form everyday — often more than once a day. Whether talking about a facial or body moisturizer, its benefits are proven daily.
Moisturizer is one of the most common products on the market. It is a staple in most people’s skin care regimen on a daily basis. Whether used morning, afternoon, evening, night or all of the above, moisturizer has many applications and benefits for the user.
Moisturizer has many daily uses for the average consumer, and while beauty products such as moisturizer have a connotation of more female users, that is not completely true. Men as well as women should use moisturizer.
There are some moisturizers that are stated as specifically for day wear, normally these are facial moisturizers. Moisturizers for daytime commonly have SPF protection in them to protect one’s skin from the sun. Since the sun can emit damaging rays, and one’s face is always out in the open, exposed to these rays, it’s important to use facial moisturizers that contain sunscreen.
Although ideally one should use sunscreen on their face whenever they will be in the sun, these moisturizers are highly recommended to give a little extra protection. It comes down to the fact that it is not going to hurt you and it is better to have the SPF in the moisturizer than not.
In addition to daytime moisturizers, there are also some for night as well. Night moisturizers are meant to keep the skin hydrated during sleep. Many also claim restorative features as you sleep. Often night moisturizers are called creams because they are often much thicker and creamier than day moisturizers.
There are also numerous moisturizers that are advertised for help with certain specific conditions. Common conditions include acne and wrinkles. There are numerous skin care regimens, and all of them include some type of moisturizer.
There are many moisturizers that claim to aid in the clearing of acne by having qualities such as being oil-free and absorbing excess oil to make skin clearer. Many products for the treatment of acne are very powerful and work by drying the oils from one’s skin. This means that anyone using these types of products needs to use a moisturizer often to keep one’s skin from getting too dry.
There are also many wrinkle treatments and other moisturizers for younger looking skin. Many of these creams claim to make one’s skin tighter and firmer, lessening the occurrence and the appearance of wrinkles as well as fine lines on one’s face.
The face is not the only area that needs to be hydrated with moisturizer; the whole body does as well. Some “rough” spots on the body include the knees and elbows, which need to be hydrated to prevent getting rough. One’s entire body needs moisturizer just like the face to keep from getting dry skin. Although the face especially needs this because it can dry out easier with the effects of weather and other exposure, the body should not be neglected.
There are all kinds of lotions for the body. Common ones include body lotions to firm one’s legs, thighs, tummy, or any other areas one wishes. There are also lotions that claim to be “shave minimizing” to reduce the need to shave one’s legs as often.
No matter what body part or what condition, there is a moisturizer on the market to help alleviate the problem or just keep one’s skin hydrated and looking its best.
