Dry, Oily, or Combination: Matching Your Skin Type to the Right Moisturizer

Who does not like smooth and nourished skin? Silky, soft skin shines in its natural glow, which doesn’t reflect an oily or greasy glow and is neither dry nor flaky, reflecting a lack of nourishment. Therefore, the best moisturizer for oily skin is the one that hydrates and nourishes the skin, suiting the skin type.

If you are already using a moisturizer in your daily skin regimen, but not getting the desired results, it’s time to check the moisturizer if it suits your skin type. Leave your worries to us, and let us help you choose the right moisturizer for your skin type, read on.

Why do you need a moisturizer?

Dehydrated skin is dry and dull, and it could also be irritated, flaky, and infectious. Dry skin also leads to premature ageing and shows signs like wrinkles and fine lines. Harsh environmental conditions like UV rays, pollution, and extreme temperatures can also make the skin dehydrated and dull. Therefore, the Best Moisturizer for Glowing Skin can save your skin from many possible harms.

Picking up the right moisturizer for your skin type

Identifying your skin type is your first step in choosing the right moisturizer. Different skin types have different concerns, like oily skin faces the problem of overactive sebum or is prone to acne. A suitable moisturizer with the right formulation nourishes your skin and protects it from further damage. Let’s see what makes a moisturizer best for each skin type:

1. Face moisturizers for normal skin

If you have a normal skin type, you are among those lucky ones who do not have to bother much about many skin problems. Normal skin type has neither too oily nor dry skin or a balanced skin type. It reflects a balanced sebum production, making skin naturally moisturized. As the skin type has a healthy moisture balance, a gentle formulation of face moisturizer, which is not greasy, works well to maintain hydration and nourishment.

We recommend Lotus Herbals Probrite Illuminating Radiance moisturizer. It is a lightweight moisturizer with the goodness of Japanese Sakura, which supports keeping the skin healthy and hydrated.

2. Face moisturizer for dry skin

Dry skin lacks a natural moisture balance and often appears flaky, rough, tight, and dry. Dull, uneven texture, fine lines, and wrinkles are problems with dry skin. For those with dry skin, a moisturizer with a creamier formulation, like lactose extracts, shea butter, or almond oil, helps add moisture to the dry and flaky skin, making the skin hydrated and smooth.

We recommend: The smooth and creamy texture of Lotus herbal White glow skin brightening deep nourishing cream SPF 20 helps in deeply moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated for long hours.

3. Face moisturizer for oily skin

Oily skin results from overactive sebum that produces more natural oil than the skin requires. Whiteheads, blackheads, acne, and a greasy appearance are common concerns of oily skin types. To reduce the chances of these, choose a gel-based, lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, or aloe vera. These water ingredients keep the skin hydrated without making it greasy.

We recommend Lotus Herbals Active Aloe + Niacinamide Brightening Boost Gel. This non-greasy moisturizing cream contains the goodness of aloe vera and niacinamide extracts, which help keep the skin hydrated by locking in moisture in the skin’s cells.

4. Face moisturizer for combination skin

As the name says, the combination skin type is the one with a mix of both dry and oily skin. The skin around the cheeks is dry and the skin around the T-area (forehead, nose, and chin) is oily. The perfect moisturizer for combination skin type is the one that keeps the oily area hydrated along with a lightweight oil formulation which smoothens the dry area on the face. Lightweight formulations containing salicylic acid or honey in the moisturizer will keep the combination skin hydrated.

We recommend Lotus Herbals WhiteGlow Advanced Pink Glow Brightening Cream with SPF 20, which is a great choice for this skin type and keeps the skin properly hydrated and moisturized.

5. Face moisturizer for sensitive skin

Those with sensitive skin are easily troubled by itchiness or redness on their skin when exposed to environmental factors that are harsh on their skin. This skin can even react with moisturizers with artificial ingredients or fragrances. It needs the best moisturizer for glowing skin that comes with natural ingredients and is chemical-free, preservative-free, and artificial fragrance-free.

We recommend Lotus Herbals Papaya Blem. This papaya and Saffron anti-blemish cream contains the goodness of saffron and papaya extracts, which protect the skin from external environmental factors. It is made of natural ingredients that are kind and gentle on the skin.

Identifying your skin type and choosing the right moisturizer is the key to healthy, hydrated, and nourished skin. Lotus Herbals moisturizers are thoughtfully crafted, keeping in mind the needs of different skin types like Face Moisturizers for Oily Skin that help keep the problems of breakouts to the minimum.
