Moisturizing the skin

When it comes to a choice for a product which is perfect for moisturizing the skin, generally there is a confusion between a moisturizer and cream. A mild moisturizer is ideal for moisturizing the skin because it has a light formula and the cream is a little heavy so creams are avoided for this skin type. The product which has contents like, glycerin, urea, hyaluronic acid, or dimethicone is perfect for the use.


The sunscreen which is between the SPF 15-30 is perfect for the application for this skin type. The task which is served by a sunscreen is it helps in absorbing the harmful ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B before they can harm the skin so it is important to choose a correct sunscreen.

In the case of normal skin, a sunscreen with a little moisturizer is ideal and for dry skin, cream sunscreen is recommended. For a sensitive skin, the sunscreen which is free from chemicals is the best choice for protection.
