Which Is The Best Facial Moisturizer?
Would it surprise you to know that the best facial moisturizer is not actually a moisturizer at all?
Firstly before we look at what the best facial moisturizers do we should consider what moisturizers in general do. What is a moisturizer and what should it be doing for your skin?
A moisturizer is a product that is designed to improve the skin’s hydration, or in other words help the skin cells to retain their water content. If the skin dries out too much it becomes less supple and feels dry, and can be more prone to skin damage.
Well moisturized skin is more healthy skin, and protects itself better than a dry skin will do. It is supple and healthy and feels good.
And the way moisturizers work varies as well. For example some moisturizers include a sunscreen to help protect the skin from sunburn.
Unfortunately there are a number of products including moisturizers that contain suspect ingredients. We have already talked about mineral oil in moisturizers.
We believe that you should avoid using moisturizers which include mineral oil.
Why? Because it isn’t good for your skin, read some more of our article for more information.
And we also believe that moisturizers shouldn’t contain a sunscreen either. Yes it is important to protect your skin from sunburn, vital actually. So if you’re wondering why you shouldn’t buy a moisturizer with a sunscreen read our article about moisturizers with sunscreen.
So the ingredients in any moisturizer are one of the most important things you need to consider. For example there are some moisturizers that contain ingredients that are considered to be dangerous, believe it or not. And there are some moisturizers that can also cause skin reactions and allergies because of the ingredients that they use.
So you can, in fact, do more damage than good if you choose the wrong facial moisturizer.
So lets answer the question about which is the best facial moisturizer.
We consider the best facial moisturizer to be the natural skin care products from Xtend Life. We’ll explain why.
Firstly we should say that if you visit their website you won’t find a moisturizer there, because they make a range of natural skin care products that are targeted to overall skin health rather than just moisturizing the skin. However if you use the products you’ll find that they moisturize better than any other product on the market. And that is intentional.
Xtend Life add a number of ingredients to their products specifically included for their moisturizing properties. They don’t add a sunscreen for the reasons we have talked about before, and they don’t use mineral oil.
Rather they include such ingredients as Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil is an excellent natural oil and helps protect the skin from moisture loss by forming a layer on the skin to do so, and it is also absorbed into the skin cells thereby softening the skin. It is entirely non allergenic, (as are all the ingredients they use) and it is good for all skin types.
All Xtend Life products use ingredients that are good for all skin types, they do not differentiate between skin types for their products because the ingredients they use are beneficial for skin regardless of skin type.
Another essential ingredient in the best facial moisturizers is Vitamin B5, which moisturizes and also helps provide some natural protection against sun damage. It also helps repair skin tissue.
Sorbitol is a humectant that can be found in grapes and berries, seaweed and algea and others which also helps the skin retain moisture. And oil from the seeds of the Capuacu tree are also used for their ability to smooth the skin and help retain skin moisture.
And more, but you get the idea. The skin care products from Xtend Life are designed to moisturize as a part of a complete skin care routine. The moisturizing effects of the products is unsurpassed, but they do not actually make a moisturizer. Rather they make a complete skin care routine that moisturizes as well as much much more.
And at a reasonable price.
So if you’re looking for the best facial moisturizer it may surprise you to know that the best facial moisturizer is not in fact a moisturizer at all, but is in fact the best skin care products that moisturize extremely well, for all skin types, as a part of a complete skin health program.
