Do I Really Need Moisturizer?

In a word, yes! It is as simple as that, you do NEED moisturizer. "But Angela" you say, "what if I have oily skin?" Well then, you DO need moisturizer! We all do. The reason is because moisturizer delivers Irishmen to our skin to keep it healthy and hydrated. You may find that after using a good moisturizer you will have less oily skin as well. So here are my favorite mositurizers for differnt skin types!

Skin Type - Normal
This means your skin is not oily, not dry and not sensitive. You skin is normal. You need a simple moisturizer that will do the job. You can really use anything, but my favorite for normal skin types is the Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar. This is because this moisturizer will replenish skin without leaving it feeling heavy or coated, and it gets the job done. A little goes a long way so it is a good value too. 

Skin Type - Sensitive
If your skin is sensitive you need only the purest and simplest ingredients in your products. This is why I recommend either Soak It Up by Pur Minerals or Mineral Moisture Complex by Pur Minerals. Soak it up is best for drier skin types, which Mineral Moisture Complex is great for oily or normal skin types. Both are made by Pur Minerals and have simple and hard working ingredients that will work, without irritating your skin. 
Skin Type - Dry
This is me people! Dry skin gets flaky and sometimes even scaly where your skin needs moisture most! I highly recommend the Skin Smoothing Cream from Dermalogica for this! It is intense, creamy and you will feel it working right away! After just a few days of use there is no more flaky foundation or scaly patches! It is worth the investment for sure! As mentioned in the Sensitive Skin section, Soak It Up by Pur Minerals is also a good option. 

Skin Type - Oily
If you have oily skin, you know it! Oily skin types are the most prone to break outs and often liquid foundation just doesn't stay on your face. For oily skin Active Moist from Dermalogica is my go to, because it is lightweight and works, but is also quickly absorbed by the skin.
