Moisturizers creams lotions oils work by attracting and trapping moisture and oil in the skin leaving it soft and supple. They remove the dull ashen appearance of dry skin that many women of color are prone to. A good moisturizer will also serve as a barrier between your skin and the elements such as harsh wind and pollution.
Choosing the right moisturizer is key to keeping skin smooth while not clogging pores. Moisturizers come in a variety of types including ones that are oil-based water-based oil-free and vitamin-enriched. To choose the best moisturizer for you you’ll need to consider your skin type and seasonal change.
For Oily Skin. Women with oily skin can typically forgo a moisturizer. Yes despite what your mother may have taught you moisturizers will not prevent wrinkles and you will normally not need moisturizer unless your skin gets dry in the winter. In that case opt for an oil-free formula that hydrates the skin. Consider products containing glycerin or other humectants that draw moisture to skin without clogging pores or imparting a greasy feel to the skin (Fashion Fair Oil Free Moisturizer).
For Combination Skin. Apply a light lotion once or twice a day to the dry areas of the skin only. You will probably not need to apply the moisturizer to the fore-head and nose which are typically oily. During the summer switch to an oil-free product such as Black Opal Oil Free Moisturizing Lotion or eliminate it altogether.
For Normal Skin. You do not need to moisturize unless your skin becomes dry in winter or in certain climates. In that case use an oil-free moisturizer like Black Opal Oil Free Moisturizing Lotion.
For Dry Skin. Moisturize two or three times a day depending on your needs and your skin on a given day. During the fall and winter use a rich cream or lotion designed for dry skin (Lancome Absolute Replenishing Creme SPF 15 Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Lubriderm Daily UV Lotion SPF 15 MD Forte Replenish Hydrating Cream Hydra Sorbet Aquatique Moisturel Therapeutic Cream). Switch to a lighter lotion in the spring and summer. Avoid products containing vitamin A or retinol which can further dry the skin. Also steer clear of greasy products (Vaseline) that can clog pores especially if your skin is acne prone.
