									Have you ever wondered if the facial moisturizer for dry aging skin you're using is
actually keeping up to its promise of moisturizing your dry aging face? Do you easily
notice if there is a change in the texture of your skin? These two questions should
have crossed your mind if you're using such a moisturizer for long periods already.
But still no apparent improvement is happening to your face.

The skin experiences dryness for a number of reasons. It could be due to:

1. Long exposure to the sun

2. Severe dehydration

3. Poor diet

4. Dry weather

5. and of course, Aging

Aging is a stage in an adult's life. This is where the individual experiences a
continuous deterioration in bodily functions. This deterioration is internal and external.
Now, the external evidence of aging is mostly seen in the skin. These signs are
formation of age spots, wrinkles, sagging and drying. Most adults do not want these
telltales to show on their faces, especially the dryness. The dryness hastens the
development of wrinkles; notably premature wrinkles and age spots. A reason
moisturizers are developed is to prevent the dryness of skin.

A facial moisturizer for dry aging skin should always keep the face hydrated. It should
also protect the skin from chapping, cracking, and scaling. And prevent the formation
of premature wrinkles and age spots. These could be achieved if the moisturizer
contains the ingredients that are truly effective in keeping the face moisturized. Avoid
ingredients that worsen the skin's condition. Now, what are the things one should keep
in mind in order to determine if the moisturizer is the best one?

A good moisturizer should contain anti-oxidants like vitamin A, E, and C. The skin
has the ability to retain water in its younger state. But as the person age, this ability
disappears, due to rapid oxidation. Oxidation produces free radicals. Free radicals
cause adverse changes in the body in a progressive manner mostly in the aging stage.
Anti-oxidants are good because they counteract the effects of oxidation.

Facial moisturizer for dry aging skin should have naturally produced ingredients as
much as possible. Chemically produced ingredients may have toxic effect on the skin.
Toxins should be avoided.

An effective moisturizer should not contain fragrances. These chemicals may produce
adverse effects on the skin. The skin's pores absorb everything that is applied on it.
Any chemical that enters the skin may also enter the blood stream. You would not
want chemicals entering your blood stream.

Also, a moisturizer should not contain alcohol or any of its derivatives. These
substances cause dryness in the skin. What is the point of applying a moisturizer if it
contains substances that worsens the condition of your face?
