The Best Hydrating Moistuirzers for Your Skin Type

Here are the three most popular types of hydrating moisturizers and what’s great about each of them.

Oils and Oil Mists

When you put oil on your skin, you feel instantly pampered. Oils are a great multi-use beauty product. Use it in your bath to soften your skin, or apply right when you get out of the shower to your damp skin. Oils soak in when applied to damp skin leaving you feel moisturized and smelling great. While oils can be a bit pricier than lotions, the bottle will last much longer. A little goes a long way; a few drops for an entire leg.

Lotions

Who doesn’t have a cabinet full of lotions? Lotions are by far the most popular moisturizer because of the ease of application. Usually dispensed with a pump or in a squeeze tube, they are the perfect companion on your desktop, by your sink and if you’re anything like me, in your car. Because we wash our hands frequently during the day, lotion is usually what we pick when our hands feel dry.

 

Body Butter

Body Butters are fantastic for intense, long lasting moisture. These are perfect for the long cold winter when skin is prone to dehydration. Formulated to be the thickest moisturizer, the consistency does seem almost butter-like. Most body butters will last up to 24 hours, making them great for areas of your body where you won’t be able to reapply on a regular basis during the day. They are also great for extra dry areas of your body such as your feet, knees and elbows.
