Most beauty professionals agree that moisturizing is important for skinĺs health and elasticity. However there is an opinion that oily/normal skin does not need moisturizing as it is naturally moisturized due to high sebum content. We disagree. Choose a moisturizer according to your skin type/ skin condition and your skin will always benefit from it.
According to wikipedia.org: Moisturizers or moisturisers are complex mixtures of chemical agents specially designed to make the external layers of the skin softer and more pliable, by increasing its hydration
There are several types of moisturizers: emulsion based (water and oil based), occlusive (create a film on the skin surface to retain moisture), oil-free (based on humectants that trap and hold water), and combined types that achieve long lasting effect. Read more here
Apply moisturizer immediately after cleansing procedure. Do it in upwards outwards movements slightly massaging the skin finishing up by lightly tapping on the skin with your finger tips ľ it helps the moisturizer to absorb and improves the skin blood circulation.
