Moisturizers - Health Tips

Thoughts on Moisturizers by Dr. Richard Sturm, MD, FAAD
November 2010

Retaining moisture is an important aspect of skin care, and will not only help your skin feel soft, but also help it maintain health and vitality. Choosing a moisturizer involves knowing your skin type and specific needs. If you have dry skin, for example, you may want a heavier, oil or petroleum-based moisturizer, and if you have oily, acne-prone skin, look for moisturizers that are water-based, oil-free and labeled "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic". People with sensitive skin should get hypoallergenic, perfume-free formulations. And moisturizers with SPF protection are also an excellent choice if you plan to be out in the sun.
