What are the different types of moisturizers?
Did you know there are three categories of moisturizers?
- Humectants absorb moisture to hydrate skin. (Example: glycerin).
- Occlusives lock moisture in the skin to keep it hydrated. (Example: petrolatum).
- Emollients fill in the spaces in the skin to create a smooth surface. (Example: grapeseed oil).
