Hi I am New York dermatologist Dr Kiran Lohia. I have my own clinic here in New Delhi for past couple of years. It’s called Lumière Dermatology. I am here to talk to you about which moisturizer to choose for your skin. Almost every girl and boy that comes in here asks me the same question. What cream should I use? This is actually a pretty easy answer for me. You can also make this decision at home based on what skin type you have. There are approximately four different skin types. Dry, oily, combination and acne prone. I tend to separate out oily and acne prone because you can have oily skin without getting acne. If you have a tendency towards oily skin or towards acne you need to look for gels. Gel based creams will not obstruct your pores and they will offer you moisture without giving you too much moisture for that oily skin. So look for a gel based cream for your oily skin or for acne prone skin. For dry skin make sure you look for a cream. You want a real cream that will offer you the moisture that your skin needs. Dry skin is actually a little harder because dry skin can actually cause ageing in your skin so it is really important you moisturise. A strong cream that hydrates you is exactly what you need. You may have to go through a few different ones before you pick the right one because some may not be hydrating enough. You should feel that your skin is dewy and moist every time you apply that cream. If it doesn’t then it is not strong enough for you. Combination skin is the most normal type of skin. Combination skin is basically normal skin in fact. If you have normal skin you probably have bit of a T zone and you skin is probably slightly dry in your cheeks. That is the way most people’s skin is. For combination skin look for lotions. A thin lotion that offers you nutrients or actives for glow or pigmentation or whatever bothers you is exactly what you need for your normal combination type skin.
