Different Types of Moisturizers
Choosing the right moisturizer can be overwhelming. Ileana Perez-Quintairos, Dermatologist at Baptist Health South Florida, says the first thing to do is understanding what they do. "They hydrate the skin and give a little layer of extra protection," she explains.
According to her, the heavier ones are going to be for patients that have drier skin and the lighter ones are going to be for more oily skin. There are also options for types of skin: for sensitive skin you want to use things that say hypoallergenic, for example.
