Finding the right moisturizer for you

written by Team Paris Laundry

Finding the right moisturizer is kind of like finding the right pair of jeans, it can be tedious work! A moisturizer is one very important step in your skincare routine, but they are not a one size fits all kind of product. Not taking the time to find the right moisturizer for your own skin type can lead to more problems with your skin, and actually accelerate the aging process. If you overdue it, it can cause breakouts, if the moisturizer isn't thick enough or formulated for dry skin your skin will become even more dry. So we want to give you some tips in finding the right moisturizer on Paris Laundry.

If your skin is Dry and Dull all year around you want to look for a moisturizer with:

  • Vitamin E
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Vitamin C  


If you have Blemish Prone skin you want to look for:

  • Less oils in the product or oil-free
  • Coconut oil can clog your pores
  • Lightweight moisture
  • Gel or serum instead of thick lotion

Not Dry or Oily? Try a facial oil instead:

  • Oils add a barrier of protection
  • They should be used after your serums to seal in moisture
  • Great oils include, jojoba oil, argan oil, and squalane, CoQ10.  


It may take some trial and error before finding your holy-grail moisturizer, but be patient, especially if you are new to natural ingredients. It should also be noted that if you are using a cleanser with harsh chemicals in it, it will be hard for your non-toxic moisturizer to do its job.
