Moisturizers are something that everyone needs, and many people neglect using them, when it comes to skincare. Simply washing your face is not enough to keep your skin looking its best. That’s why today, we’re sharing a roundup of 5 of the best face moisturizers to keep your skin glowing.
Now, you also need to use a good sunscreen to keep your complexion in good shape. Keep in mind, sunscreen should be applied after moisturizer and before makeup; and no, sunscreen is not just for summer. UVA rays don’t stop, come fall. You should keep sunscreen as part of your routine skin care, year-round.
Moisturizers should be applied during your morning and nighttime skincare routine. Remember to include your neck and chest/décolletage too. These areas can get forgotten but they can show signs of sun damage and ageing just like your face.
5 Of The Best Face MoisturizersTo Keep Your Skin Glowing
Retinol has become an important part of our skincare routines, as we’ve all learned more about how to keep our skin flawless and youthful. Not everyone wants to apply multiple serums and steps, so a moisturizer that contains retinol, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E, is perfect. The company says, “This is a powerful mixture of antioxidants combined with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and premature ageing due to sun exposure.”
This results-oriented formulation replenishes and protects the skin’s moisture barrier while protecting the skin against the abuse of elements. It’s also free of fragrances, dyes, dangerous parabens and sulphates. Not to mention it is certified organic, and it is made in Canada. The moisturizer is rich, thick, and has a pleasant light citrus smell. I love using this on nights when I just don’t want to take the time to apply my serums… this is a time-saver, but your skin doesn’t miss out on the benefits of your regular routine.
This is an absolute favourite of ours. It easily made the list of 4 of My Current Favourite Beauty Products’ for June 2021 and was featured in our IT Cosmetics review. This moisturizer is worth all that praise and more because I just can’t say enough about what is has done for my skin.
I had redness on my cheeks and around my nose, and this product has toned it down considerably. I went from using it every day all over my face to using it only on my cheeks where it’s most likely to be slightly red. I follow it up with a regular moisturizer on the rest of my face as maintenance. I apply it this way to stretch it out (it’s not an inexpensive moisturizer), and also, because I need it less. Think of this more like a treatment than just a moisturizer. I was skeptical about this moisturizer, at first, but this product has changed my skin for the better. And even if I’ve skipped a few applications here and there (it happens,) the redness on my skin has not returned to where it was before I began using it. This product will be a staple in my beauty fridge for a long time to come.
The Drops of Youth Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is a mask and a moisturizer- we love it so much it was featured in 4 of my current favourite beauty products March 2021 edition. It has a creamy and thick consistency, but it penetrates well into your skin. This product is helpful, if you have dry skin. In the morning, you will wake up looking dewy and refreshed.
This is like the holy grail of moisturizers IMHO. This moisturizer locks in moisture like no other, which leaves your skin looking plump and well hydrated. If you are someone who only uses moisturizer once a day, or occasionally forgets to moisturize twice a day, this product has you covered, because of how it locks in moisture. In fact, Clinique says that their “replenishing Technology actually helps skin create its own internal water source to continually rehydrate itself.” They are not lying.
If you want one moisturizer that can do everything and is light and easy to apply- this is what you need. There is a reason this has been such a popular product for Clinique for so long, and was featured in our Clinique review. This is the moisturizer I always have in my bathroom, and I also bring a travel size with me, when I’m away.
Moisturizer is a must-have for everyone, whether you are skincare newbie or guru. We hope this list of 5 of the best face moisturizers helps you find something new to try, or prompts you to revisit an old favourite to fall in love with all over again
