Why rest and recovery are important
Even if you've got a great formula in hand, you'll still want to ensure that it's working properly for your individual complexion, so Dr. David Orentreich, MD, a board-certified dermatologist who has served as the guiding dermatologist for Clinique Laboratories since 1987 recommends looking out for these four signs that it may not be the right fit.
While tingling can sometimes indicate that a skin-care product is working, that isn't the case for moisturizers. If you feel any stinging or burning, "this could mean that the moisturizer isn't compatible with your skin or you have a sensitivity to one or more of the ingredients," says Dr. Orentreich.
Opt for a sensitive-skin-friendly formula, as these are formulated without irritants and safe for all skin types.
If your skin is breaking out or feeling bumpy you apply your moisturizer, this may mean that the moisturizer is comedogenic which means its "clogging your pores causing inflammatory pimples as well as open and closed comedones..so you should switch to a non-comedogenic moisturizer." --Dr. Orentreich.
Look for products that are oil-free and are infused with hydrators like glycerin, honey, aloe vera, allantoin, urea, and lactic acid.
Moisturizer should help you create a smooth base for makeup, so if you notice that your foundation is pilling(forming into weird balls and quite literally roll off of your face) after you apply it, it may be because your moisturizer is too thick. When that's the case, Dr. Orentreich recommends switching to a gel-textured product. They're thinner, but equally hydrating.
This may seem obvious, but if you've been testing a moisturizer for 2 to 3 weeks and aren't seeing any positive changes in your skin's texture, it's time to swap. Look for more hydrating ingredients, like the ones listed below, to give your skin the nourishment it needs to stay healthy.
When purchasing a moisturizer, derms recommend looking for the following

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
