Different Types of Facial Moisturizers
You can find a wide array of facial moisturizers available for your use at Walgreens, depending on your age and skin type. Moisturizers may specialize in delicate skin, mature or aging skin, oily skin, or simply normal skin. The ingredients list may vary to allow for each skin type's individual needs, but the skin type also inspires the actual workings of the skin creams. For example, dry skin will require an emollient moisturizer that stays on longer to help the skin recover from its dry state. Petrolatum-based ingredients often show positive results on extremely dry skin.
Meanwhile, a light, water-based skin care product could be the best choice for oily skin, which still needs hydration despite the skin's natural oils. Ideal oily skin moisturizers will be non-comedogenic to avoid clogging your pores. Soothing ingredients like aloe or a natural formulation free from dyes and fragrances could benefit delicate and sensitive skin. Aging skin may benefit most from products containing antioxidants or alpha hydroxy acids to help fight against wrinkles. As people age, the skin slows down its natural oil production, so extra moisture becomes even more important.
Walgreens offers a wide selection of moisturizer products for all skin types and special needs. Moisturizing lotions, night creams, serums, day creams, and anti-wrinkle creams are just a few options. There are also specialized products for the delicate eye area. Some products also help with special issues like skin discoloration, extreme dryness, lightening, and fading, to name a few.
Applying a moisturizing cream to your face helps to treat and prevent dry skin with noticeable results right away in many cases. Skin that looks dry and flaky instantly perks up following application of a good quality facial moisturizer. Sensitive skin also benefits from use of moisturizing products, and numerous creams exist specifically for delicate, sensitive skin.
A good moisturizer also improves your skin's tone and texture, especially over continued use. Using a facial moisturizer regularly from an earlier age can also help to delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Studies suggest that the skin is at risk of UV damage with just 15 minutes of exposure, even with cloudy skies or cool weather. Research also supports that continued use of sunscreen on the skin can help to reduce the risk of melanoma and other skin cancers. This reason alone should be enough to inspire regular use of moisturizers with sunscreen ingredients. BACK TO TOP ›
