Facial moisturizers are one of the most commonly sought skin care products. It is rare to find a product which "just moisturizes," as most of the major lines of skin care combine moisturizing with essential sun protection at the very least. Depending on the other benefits you are looking for (or, of course, if you do want a simple moisturizer), you will be able to find the perfect facial moisturizer for you.

Facial moisturizers can help you avoid many of the unsightly effects of dry skin. Even mild dry skin can cause redness and flaking of the skin. More serious dry skin can result in burst blood vessels and broken skin that can become infected, so powerful moisturizers are essential in preventing such an occurrence.

Added Benefits of Facial Moisturizers

Facial moisturizers can have the added benefit of fighting both the emergence and appearance of wrinkles. Enhanced moisturizers can fight wrinkles with complexes that stimulate the production of structural proteins that fill in the inner layers of skin and keep the outer layers form sinking into the gaps that form in the structural layers with aging. Even simple moisturizers can fight the appearance of wrinkles, because a softer, fuller outer layer of skin will be less likely to fall into wrinkles than dry skin.

If you have oily or combination skin, it is important to be careful in selecting a moisturizer. A non-oily formula may still be suitable only for areas outside of the T-zone, while a drying or mattifying product will be used on the T-zone to balance and normalize the skin. The Internet can give you information on a variety of facial moisturizers, some of which you will not be able to find anywhere else in the U.S.
