Pass the Rouge x HSN’s Guide to Matching Your Moisturizer to Your Skin Type

photo (25)We were recently approached by HSN to collaborate on a post all about skincare! If you are familiar with our blog, then you know my sister and I love love love everything and anything related to skincare.  However this isn’t going to be a traditional entry, HSN’s beauty expert, Lara Ramos (she’s also the mastermind behind the beauty blog The Glossarie) has given us some tip and tricks on how to find the perfect moisturizer for your skin type-and I will also be giving you some product recommendations. So let’s jump into it!

For Oily Skin: For those of you out there who are struggling with oily skin, Lara recommends sticking to products that are oil-free. Look for the words “non-comedogenic” on the label of moisturizer—this means your pores won’t feel clogged by the product. I recommend trying Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion, or Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Ultra-Gentle Facial Moisturizer.

For Dry Skin: Having dry skin, especially during the wintertime, can be awful.  Lara recommends a “thick cream that works to moisturize skin more intensely” which tends to hydrate your skin better compared to water-based moisturizers. If your skin falls into this category, I recommend trying Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar, Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre, or Olay Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream.

For Sensitive Skin: If you have sensitive skin, Lara recommends using products that are dye and fragrance-free.  Here’s a helpful tip from Lara- use facial moisturizer with aloe to help soothe your sensitive skin. I recommend testing out Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin, CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, or Aveeno Daily Moisturizer.

So there you have it—Pass the Rouge x HSN’s guide to finding the perfect moisturizer based off your skin type.  Want to learn more about your skin type- click here for HSN’s skin care page! We would like to thank HSN and Lara for being part of this blog post.  Check out Lara’s post right here!
