The Use Of Moisturizers For The Face?
, I’m a 17-year-old male teenager, I want to ask whether the usual moisturizer for under makeup can be used as a regular moisturizer or not? are the two different?
Hello Andra, thank you for asking.
Manufacturers of face care and cosmetics certainly have many ways to introduce new products. Generally they will use different terms or different names. The thing you need to make sure is to check the composition of the moisturizing ingredients. Moisturizers generally have a composition almost similar to one another, only different in what ingredients will be highlighted by the manufacturer's function. Choose a moisturizer that suits your skin. Oily skin will better absorb water-based moisturizers, while dry skin can use oil-based moisturizers that have a thicker texture. If your skin tends to be sensitive or prone to allergies when in contact with certain ingredients, look for a moisturizer that is free of fragrance ingredients.
Make sure the moisturizer has a pH that matches the pH of the skin. Normally the pH of men's skins ranges from 5-5.5. If it is too high, the skin will dry out easily, peel off, redness, sting, and break out easily. Also try to choose a moisturizer that is free of alcohol or minimal alcohol content so that the skin does not dry quickly. So if you want to use a certain brand, check the composition. If the composition is just right for moisturizing, the product should be fine if used with or without cosmetics.
Hope this answer helps. Regards.
