Oil and Moisturizer are widely used to maintain skin’s hydration. While oils are emollients used to make the skin softer, they can not avoid a complete water loss from the skin’s deepest layers. On the other hand, moisturizer can penetrate the pores and hydrate the internal skin layers at the same time.
To improve the skin condition, the cosmetic industry has improved and developed specific oils able to penetrate a little deeper; and avoid the residues left on the skin after their application, hence clogging is prevented.
Moisturizer or Oil? How do I know which one to choose?
If your skin is losing water and you are looking for deep hydration, moisturizer is the best option for you. But, if you need to put nutrients and minerals on your skin, you should go for oils instead.
During the night, it is recommended to apply the oils; remember they will leave you with an oily appearance that will not allow you to put on makeup. Also, if you want to apply it to your body, the ideal moment is after you shower; this way, with the oil, you will be able to seal the moisture.
Depending on your type of skin, you can choose a product to use; here you have some recommendations:
- Moisturizer creams: They provide flexibility and comfort to dry skin, but they can leave residues on the top layer, use them if you have normal or dry skin. For better results, make sure they contain hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
- Oils: They have antiaging properties and increase cell regeneration. Try olive, almond, jojoba, and lavender oil for better results but be careful with orange oil, producing pigmentation and allergy. It is recommended for oily skin and acne conditions.
During a consultation with your aesthetician or dermatologist, a full analysis of your skin will be made, and the products needed for your specific concerns will be recommended.
