Face Moisturizer

What it is and what it is for?


Moisturizing the skin of the face is one of the essential cares in the beauty routine. Without hydration, the skin begins to dry out, losing elasticity and flexibility, causing premature aging.
Hydration is a deep skin treatment, capable of promoting elasticity, luminosity and moisture to the tissues. Keeping the skin's water balance and replenishing moisture, it eliminates tension and smooths out wrinkles.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Moisturizing face care can have several ingredients, the most effective and common being the following:
Humectants, substances that attract water from the air and from the deepest layers of the skin to hydrate the top layer of the skin. Some examples of humectants are: glycerin, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, sodium hyaluronic, urea, among others.
Occlusive, ingredients that form a protective barrier on the skin to prevent moisture loss. Examples of occlusives are: shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, etc.
Ceramides, lipids that keep the skin barrier strong and healthy, sealing moisture in the skin, which promotes intense hydration. The more hydrated, the younger the skin looks.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


Moisturizers are usually part of three types: humectants, emollients and occlusives. As a rule, each group is best for one or two skin types.
Moisturizing humectants are the most common care in gel. They are usually great for all skin types, especially oily ones. In addition, they are quick to absorb and have a light texture. These moisturizers have ingredients that absorb moisture and provide water to skin cells, in order to keep them hydrated.
Emollient moisturizers are the most common care in light creams, lotions and balms. They are usually more recommended for normal to dry skin types, as they provide a thicker and creamy texture.
Occlusive moisturizers, the most common care in thicker creams and balms, are very good for very dry skin. This type of moisturizing care retains moisture in the skin, repairs its natural barrier and promotes a deeply hydrated complexion.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The moisturizer packaging can have a wide range, depending on its type, that is, whether it is cream, serum, etc.
In the case of creams, the most common packaging is jar, tube, doser. Its most frequent amount is 50ml.
Balms can be presented in tubes and jars, with the most frequent amounts being 50ml and 100ml.
In lotions, the packages are dosers or in bottles and their most frequent size ranges from 50ml to 200ml.
In the case of fluids, the packages are also dosers or bottles, with exceptions. Its most frequent size is 50ml.
There are also moisturizers in gel or gel-cream that can have packaging in doser, bottle, jar and tube and their sizes range from 30ml to 150ml.
Finally, emulsions are dosing or tube packaging and their quantity varies between 40ml, 50ml and 100ml.


What to take into account when choosing a face moisturizing care?


When choosing a moisturizing care, it is very important to assess your skin type and see if the treatment you want corresponds to the same. Otherwise, it may cause adverse effects to those desired.
After knowing your skin type, you can choose, for example, a light and non-greasy moisturizer for normal skin or with a heavier and creamy formula for dry skin.
You should choose a care that contains at least some of the ingredients mentioned above, as these ingredients are really beneficial and provide several privileges to your skin.
Finally, choose a moisturizer with SPF15 or higher and apply it every day. The best way to fight the damage to the skin caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays is to put on sunscreen every day, that is, if you choose a moisturizer that already has sun protection, it will be very beneficial for the skin.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


In order to improve your experience with the moisturizer, the most important, as mentioned earlier, is the choice of the product. That is, assess the needs of your skin and look for a product adapted to it.
Whenever you need to apply hand care, make sure you have it very clean, as it can pass unwanted bacteria on your face.
When applying moisturizer, do not put it in excess, otherwise the skin will have difficulty absorbing it, which can cause excess oil in the skin.
Finally, before applying, make sure you have cleaned your face thoroughly so that the care penetrates the skin in the best way and apply it gently so as not to irritate the skin.


What are the pros and cons of using a face moisturizing care?


Face moisturizers improve the condition of the skin, since it is effectively hydrated and smoother, but we must also take into account the disadvantages.
In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the care, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: deeply moisturizes the skin; prevents dry skin; maintains moisture on the skin; revitalizes and regenerates the tissue; improves skin luminosity; neutralizes free radicals; prevents skin blemishes; prevents premature aging; controls excess sebum in the skin.
