oil is applied to the surface of the skin, does not fulfill the protective functions that are inherent to secrete sebum, so do not buy moisturizers, soaps and creams, based only on the fact that they contain oil.What really effective?
Moisturizers funds based aqueous solutions have a quick moisturizing effect, although this effect is short-lived because the water does not stay long on the surface of the skin and evaporates.Thus, wetting solutions, which are most rapidly penetrate the skin, give only short-term effect.
Emulsions are a mixture of water and oil in different proportions.Those that contain less oil than the water absorbed into the skin more easily.They can be applied under makeup."It was water, not oil gives the skin smoothness and elasticity!"
