I keep my facial moisturizers simple and light. I don’t buy into the anti aging campaign of heavy cream, day cream, night cream. Heck, I don’t even do eye cream. I have tried dozens of them, I don’t really like the way they feel. And quite frankly I’ve never noticed any improvements justifying the hefty price tag associated with eye creams.
I want my face to feel hydrated and light. I assess its needs daily and act accordingly.
I rotate 3 moisturizers
Dermalogica Active Moist
Even thought I have oily, acne prone skin that’s sensitive, the need for hydration is still crucial even during breakouts. Active Moist (3.4oz/$54) has been by my side for years and I love how well it plays with pimples. I never feel like I have a greasy mask after using it. On the contrary, my skin absorbs it easily and feels happy. Lightweight and calming. Contains no artificial fragrance or color Highly recommend.
Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream
Skin Smoothing (3.4oz/$58) is a medium weight cream that leaves my skin so well hydrated, in a cinch. I use it mostly during the winter when my skin feels extra thirsty. It never ever causes me to break out.
Skin Smoothing cream is also restorative with Antioxidant vitamins C, E, and Grape Seed Extract help reduce skin-damaging free radical activity; Aloe moisturizes to help prevent appearance of dehydration lines; Silk amino acids help smooth and improve skin texture. I love it.
Murad Essential-C Night Moisture
Essential-C Moisture ($60) is the heaviest of all the moisturizers I use. I know it is recommend for night time, but I use it whenever my skin needs which is not often. The shea butter feels like silk and I love the Vitamin C in there.
What are you go to moisturizers?
