Why You Need Moisturizer

Moisturizing your skin is important when it comes to keeping skin looking its best—youthful, radiant and healthy—and a high-performance facial moisturizer is a vital part of any skincare routine. It deeply hydrates and nourishes skin plus delivers targeted anti-aging benefits.

In the morning, you might prefer a more lightweight face cream or lotion. Ones with SPF are also favorites for extra protection. At night, reach for a richer formula for extra nighttime nourishment. Did you know skin loses more moisture at night? While you sleep, skin’s temperature rises and moisture loss peaks. It’s important to keep skin extra hydrated with an intensive night creme.

Should I Moisturize My Face Every Day?

Some skincare products deserve a daily spot in your routine and facial moisturizer is one of them. It’s recommended to use moisturizer daily, AM and PM, to achieve optimal hydration and experience all of the additional benefits your chosen formula has to offer.

How To Apply Moisturizer On Your Face

A frequently asked skincare question is how to apply moisturizer on your face. Use your moisturizer after applying your cleanser, treatment lotion and serum. Apply on clean, slightly damp skin for best results. You can warm the product between your hands and pat it onto your skin, then gently massage it in until it absorbs. Apply it all over your face and neck, morning and night.

What Are The Best Face Moisturizers?

In addition to knowing how to apply moisturizer, it’s important to know what the best moisturizer for the face is.
