Here are some great tips from skin care expert and dermatologist, Dr. Howard Sobel. These tips are on over-moisturizing your skin during the summer season.

Which ingredients offer the most moisturizing power for the body?

The ingredients that offer the most moisturizing power for the body are glycerin, mineral oil, lanolin and dimethicone.

Is it even possible to over-moisturize? (For instance, I use a moisturizing body wash, in-shower body lotion, and body cream.) Is that overkill?

Yes, it is possible to over-moisturize – It is a common misunderstanding that the more moisturizer you use, the more effective it can be. Excellent moisturizers are typically very concentrated and are meant to deliver through small amounts for all skin types. Moisturizers work to prevent water loss by coating the skin with a substance to trap moisture and too much will cause risks.

If so, what do you risk by going overboard with moisturizing?

By over-moisturizing you can risk and cause the skin barrier function to weaken as well as clogging pores. Also, water-friendly ingredients like glycerin, which is supposed to attract and retain moisture, can only do so at a certain level of humidity.

    I want to try the Malin+Goetz Vitamin b5 Body Lotion which is not a brand I have used in the past. The idea of an applicator that was designed to completely eliminate wasted makeup and skincare is wonderful. I want to try too.

  2. I definitely need a new styling brush and I like the look of the Conair round brush. The metals collection looks like a good addition for hair styling also especially during these hot summer days.
