Can your moisturizer be making your skin drier?


Womans skin - one half dry

Did you know that your moisturizer could be making your skin drier? Here is why? And a quick tip on how to check you favorite lotions.

Moisturizing lotions contain an emulsifier to give it a creamy smooth feeling. A small amount is effective. But if it contains too much emulsifier it turns the lotion into a daily assault on your skin. An excess of emulsifier works like a cleanser rather than moisturizer. No one would leave a cleanser on their skin all day. It leaves the skin dry and irritated. And you may be applying more drying emulsifier than a moisturizing lotion. So how can you be sure you moisturizer is not making your skin dry? It's a simple trick. 1. Take a pearl size of your moisturizer in your hands. 2. Rub your hands together vigorously as if your frothing your cleanser. 3. If your moisturizer has whipped up into a froth or foam, then that's proof it has an excess of emulsifier. And you need to find a new moisturizer. Here are several moisturizers I recommend.
