Moisturizers


Moisturizers prevent and treat dry skin, make the skin appear youthful, reduce signs of aging and blemishes, lessens inflammation in the skin, and shields it from external damaging agents. 


Moisturizers operate in one of two main methods: they trap moisture in your skin to prevent it from escaping, and they restore moisture in the external layer of skin that's previously been lost and prevent it from drying out again. 


Just like other skincare products, finding the moisturizer that’s suited for you will require a lot of trial and error. The good news at Eight Skincare we've tried and tested many moisturizers so, you don't have to. Below are articles to help you find your perfect moisturizer!

Different types of moisturizers can be divided into three categories. Each works slightly differently, but most products combine all three: humectants, emollients, and occlusives.


Humectants work by penetrating the outer layer of the skin, drawing water to it, and lock that moisture in. Also prompt the generation of ceramides, our body's natural waxy molecules that perform an important part in the structure of the skin

Emollients restore moisture and keep skin smooth by filling in the spaces between skin cells which fall apart and break when the skin is dry and damaged. 

Occlusives form a barrier over the skin, trapping water in the skin's layers and stopping evaporation.


Normal skin types should use a light, water-based moisturizer that includes natural oils, whereas people with dry skin may require choosing a heavier, oil-based moisturizer that contains humectants ingredients that help maintain water and lock in moisture. For those with oily skin, choose a lightweight, water-based product that is oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog pores. As for sensitive skin types look for moisturizers that are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and contain soothing ingredients. And for combination skin types try a medium-weight, non-comedogenic and oil-free moisturizer avoiding ointments or heavier moisturizers
