How to Choose a Face Moisturizer for Dry Skin – Buying Guide

Face moisturizers are in abundance on the Philippine market. Choosing the best moisturizer for your dry skin shouldn’t be a tiresome endeavor, so we’re here to help you.

Look for Ingredients that are Suitable for Dry Skin

Manufacturers use different ingredients to help their customers achieve different benefits. That’s why checking the ingredients of face moisturizers for dry skin should be your priority.

Check for Moisturizing Ingredients Like Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid

Check for Moisturizing Ingredients Like Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid
Some common yet effective moisturizing ingredients to find in face moisturizers for dry skin include the following: ceramide, propylene glycol, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and butylene glycol.
Among these ingredients, ceramide is the most potent in moisturizing power. However, ceramide face moisturizers are uncommon because these ingredients are normally found in creams and milk lotions. Still, moisturizers containing glycerin and other mentioned ingredients are already sufficient enough to give proper hydration to the skin.
Keep in mind that giving moisture is different from retaining moisture. There are some products that have excellent moisturizing benefits but can be lacking when it comes to retaining moisture.
Checking the moisture retention of the product is as simple as applying a small amount to the skin and waiting for 15 minutes. If the skin is still moist after that time frame, then the moisture retention of the skin care product is good enough.

Check for Brightening and Acne-Fighting Ingredients

Check for Brightening and Acne-Fighting Ingredients
We also recommend considering products that not only moisturize, but also prevent acne and fix uneven skin tone. Salicylic acid, which kills bacteria, and allantoin, which has anti-inflammatory properties, are two ingredients suited for acne-prone skin.
Additionally, products containing placenta and vitamin C derivatives can help prevent dull skin and dark spots. However, some vitamin C derivatives can be drying because of their high potency. Make sure to check the concentration of these ingredients when looking for the right face moisturizer for dry skin.

Check for Moisturizers with Little or No Stimulants

Check for Moisturizers with Little or No Stimulants
People that have dry and sensitive skin should avoid using skin care products containing stimulants that can irritate the skin. Alcohol (ethanol), mineral oil, and parabens are some of the common stimulants found in face moisturizers.
Some manufacturers include alcohol in their products for a cooling and refreshing effect, but as the alcohol evaporates, it takes with it the skin’s moisture. Products that don’t use additives are usually a safe choice, but those with no preservatives are prone to expiring faster. And accidentally using these expired products can damage your skin even more.

Use Nano-Sized Ingredients, which Can Permeate and Thoroughly Moisturize the Skin

Use Nano-Sized Ingredients, which Can Permeate and Thoroughly Moisturize the Skin
Don’t be fooled by some products that seem to have amazing ingredients. It won’t make any difference if those ingredients can’t properly permeate the skin.
Our skin cells are nano-sized; therefore, anything larger won’t permeate the skin. For example, hyaluronic acid molecules are larger, which means it only hydrates the outer layer of the skin. When choosing a product, check whether it uses nano-sized ingredients or nanotechnology so you can maximize its benefits.

Consider Using Testers at the Shop to Check Skin Compatibility

Consider Using Testers at the Shop to Check Skin Compatibility
Everyone’s skin is unique. Even if a product is meant for your skin type, some ingredients might not be suitable for you. The most efficient way to find out whether a product is suitable or not is to test it on one’s skin.
Most physical shops will have testers available, and some stores may even offer samples you can take home to try. You can use these testers to make sure you won’t experience any allergic reactions or irritation.
