Moisturizer For Your Supple Skin

Moisturizer For Your Supple SkinYour skin is your body’s first line of defense against a world teeming with chemicals, bacteria and fungi. The system is just about flawless, until you allow its moisture balance to be upset. Skin that’s constantly dry or cracked, and opens up easily, is more sensitive to bacterial attack, so be careful for it. The same is true of skin that’s bloated with fluids. But informed use of moisturizers can help prevent such cracks of your body’s defense-and thus head off a lot of potential skin problems.
Skin knowledge
Knowing your skin type gets you off to a good start, because moisturizers work differently on every one-even those with the same skin type. If a moisturizer keeps your skin supple without any negative side effects, you’ve got a winner. A loser, when used repeatedly, can block pores and lead to spots. There’s a way to reduce the chances of this happening, through.

Most of the larger cosmetic companies test their products to make them as not causing acne, as possible, if you routinely have trouble with acne,  you select a moisturizer that states that it’s been tested in 10,000 who reacts to the product with blemishes, but at least the odds are in your favor. Be on the lookout for perfumes and preservatives in moisturizers that might cause you to develop contact dermatitis. It’s a condition that scales and may burn, sting or itch. The best way to prevent this reaction is to have your skin doctor test you to determine which ingredient causes the problem, and then avoid it. Remember to think twice about all the above considerations, once for your face and once for the rest of your body. Your facial may require one moisturizing formula; the rest of your skin, another. The skin on your face is more sensitive then elsewhere and may even be a different skin type.
Take care for your eyes
Be careful what moisturizer you use around your eyes, because skin there is thinner. Anything that causes a reaction on the skin of your face will cause a reaction four times greater around your eyes. It may be fine to use your moisturizer as an eye cream for softening your skin only, with no active ingredient that claims to change the physiology of your skin. But if your daily moisturizer claims to change your skin, consider using a separate eye cream. If you want it to double as an eye cream, use it elsewhere on your face for at least a month. Only if there have been no nasty reactions should you try it around your eyes.
A moisturizer formulated specifically for use around the eyes usually has a light texture that doesn’t spoil the delicate skin in this area. Apply anything in this delicate area with a light hand. Use your ring finger and a patting motion to apply nourishment or makeup around the eyes.
Over hydration
Moisturizing is also tricky where there are skin folds, such as between your toes-places where you perspire more, even without moisturizers these spots are susceptible to being over hydrated-retaining too much fluid-a problem you rarely encounter on the face. Over hydration is frequently compounded by clothing or shoes that don’t allow the sweat to evaporate. If you apply a moisturizer to wet skin, there’s no chance of evaporation from the skin’s surface. All the moisture that’s generated is held there. Athlete’s foot is a good example of a problem that can be made worse by over hydration. When it’s warm and moist between your toes, there’s a warm ‘garden’ environment in which the fungus can flourish. Moisturizers may then provide the nutrients for that fungus to feed upon, especially if the product is old and the preservative in the oil is no longer working. If you have a fungal infection, you want to eliminate these ideal conditions. Keep the skin around your toes clean and dry and don’t use a moisturizer there until the condition has disappeared.
So the general rule is avoided moisturizing in skin-fold areas unless they feel especially dry.
APPLYING IT SMART.
Before applying any moisturizer, ask you, is it fresh? The shelf life of creams and lotion, as for all cosmetics, is a maximum of one to two years. After that, the ingredients no longer have an element that protects them against bacterial and fungal attack. It’s especially important to use fresh products around your eyes. We see a lot of problems with old and decaying products getting into the eye. When you apply a facial moisturizer, gently rub it on to relax underlying muscles, massaging for 10 seconds. The massage won’t help get rid of wrinkles, but if it feels good, it may help ease stress lines a bit.
If your body skin is sensitive to pimples try applying moisturizers in the direction of your hair follicles. Applying against the follicles makes them more likely to set up in the pores and cause problems.  If you have a skin infection, consult your skin doctor before applying any moisturizer. If a moisturizer itches when you put it on, should probably avoid it. If it produces a rash, you’d better see a doctor to make an enquiry what caused it. It may be only one ingredient out of the 10 that are in the product, but that one ingredient may be in many other products that you can avoid.
