Q:

How to pick up a moisturizer?

How do pick up a moisturizer for you ? 
1. Check out your skin type and concern !  If you have oily skin, go with a light, oil-free moisturizer. If you have dry skin, get something richer. And if you have combination skin, go with a lighter moisturizer for your whole face and dot drier areas with a heavier cream
2. application of moisturizer according to the day / night times j  Choose a light moisturizer for day and a heavier one for nighttime.
3. Right time of applying moisturizer ?  Moisturizers are most effective when skin is still damp, as damp skin best absorbs the moisture and locks it in for a longer time. Dont wait long after bath / wash apply asap !
4. when and how to use a moisturizer ?  Applying a thin coating  particularly after bathing, showering, or swimming to trap water in the skin. Pat dry to keep skin damp don't vigorously towel dry or you'll remove the water from your skin before it can be sealed in. Repeat the application twice daily or when your skin is itchy, especially during the winter months, when wind, cold, and indoor heating dry your skin out the most.

Ingredients in moisturizers to avoid

While there are almost endless amounts of ingredients that help hydrate, moisturize and protect skin, there are certain ingredients you should avoid. Always double check the ingredients list on your moisturizer and make sure it doesn't include artificial fragrances, dyes, parabens, or phthalates. These ingredients can potentially dry out your skin even more and even cause irritation.
