How Your Moisturizing Mistakes are Messing Up Your Skin

Moisturizing your facial skin sounds pretty straightforward to follow right? Well, that’s where you can go SO wrong - a poorly chosen moisturizer can do more harm than good. For you to get the most from your moisturizer with the right results, mindlessly picking one off the shelf isn’t going to cut it. It all comes down to getting the formula, timing, and technique just right. The wrong moisturize can cause clogged pores and acne but the right moisturizer will be your skin’s redeemer.

Tip #1 Get The Right Moisturizer For Your Skin Type

What’s the big deal about skin types? Basically, knowing your skin type can help you truly know what your skin needs, and what it should steer clear of. Nailing your moisturizer can be overwhelming with all the different formulas out there. All the hassle to first identify your skin type, then look for products that match it. If only there were moisturizers formulated for all skin types so you could slap some on and go back to your game of FIFA. That’s why Moisturize Bettr is a no-brainer for thousands of men before you, it’s lightweight yet provides deep moisture for up to 72 hours. It does more than just moisturize but heals any acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or redness. 

Tip #2 Apply Routinely

Even though it seems logical to only hydrate when your skin is dry, but that’s counterintuitive. When the skin is dry, it produces more sebum to lubricate itself, which means that you are likely to end up with sebum build-up causing acne or oily skin. Dry skin could become so coarse that moisturizing it and reaching the skin layers could be challenging. So, remember our mantra - consistency is key.

Tip #3 Moisturize Oily Skin

Word on the street is that if you have oily skin, you don’t need to or shouldn’t moisturize. This is a MYTH - when your skin is dehydrated, it produces more oil to compensate - so moisturize! Oily skin means excess sebum that could clog your pores, and a moisturizer that sits heavy on your skin is just going to make it worse. If you have oily skin, the moisturizer of your (skin’s) dreams would be something lightweight, quick-absorbing, and non-comedogenic - sounds like Moisturize Bettr is your pick.

A badly chosen moisturizer formula and careless application can actually cause breakouts and skin sagging - so do right by your skin.
