FAQs

Q: How often should I moisturize my skin?

A: You should try using both a facial and body moisturizer twice a day - in the morning when you wake up and in the evening before bed. This allows your skin to maintain moisture throughout the entire day, keeping it healthy and smooth. For those with extra-dry skin, it can be helpful to apply a moisturizer to your entire body midday or anytime your skin begins to feel dry to the touch.

Q: I have very itchy, dry skin. What are the best ingredients to look for in a moisturizer to decrease the itching?

A: Skin itching is a common symptom of dryness, especially during seasons with dramatic climate changes - such as the humidity of summer and the frigid cold of winter. For this type of issue, it’s best to choose thick, creamy moisturizers that contain soothing ingredients. Shea butter and cocoa butter are naturally hydrating and allow skin to maintain optimal levels of hydration and aloe vera is very soothing to the skin, which decreases itching.

Q: What is the difference between a moisturizing “lotion” and a “cream”?

A: There are multiple types of moisturizers available and are usually classified by the consistency of the formula. Lotions are typically thinner, more lightweight formulas that work well as a basic, daily moisturizer or for skin that doesn’t get too dry. Creams and body butters come in a thicker formula and are usually best for those who have extra-dry, chapped or cracked skin that needs a little extra push in the hydration area. Creams also usually come in a tub because of how dense they are and need to be applied with your fingers versus uses a lotion in a pump bottle.

Q: I can’t stand the taste of minty toothpaste. Does Supersmile offer any other flavors?

A: There are many unique flavors to try out if you’re not a fan of mint. Great alternative flavors include Supersmile Cinnamon Burst Whitening Toothpaste and Green Apple Whitening Toothpaste.

Q. I have large pores and makeup only seems to exacerbate the situation. Can you recommend a foundation that will give my skin a smooth, flawless finish?

A. If you have enlarged pores, it’s a good idea to bypass liquid or cream-based foundation formulas. This is because they can settle into large pores, amplifying their appearance and further congesting them. Instead, look to a mineral-based powder such as Dermablend Intense Powder Camo Foundation, which offers buildable, blendable coverage. This powder-based foundation glides on evenly to deliver shine-proof, all-day coverage – plus uses a unique blend of high level pigments to create a natural yet flawless finish you can feel confident about.
