Every girl should have a reliable, effective facial moisturizer as part of her daily routine. After all, skin that is well-hydrated, dewy, smooth and even not only looks attractive, but also exudes a healthy image. Prevent your complexion from becoming dry, flaky and dull by finding and using the best facial moisturizer -- for you.
If your skin is prone to oiliness and greasiness (not to mention the occasional breakout), "Elle" recommends the emollient and rich Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme from Estee Lauder. Moisturize your skin while simultaneously preventing acne with the lotion, which will not clog up your pores. The product is made to provide long-lasting results -- for up to 24 hours at a time.
One of the biggest culprits behind dry, prematurely aging skin is excessive exposure to the sun's UV rays. Protect yourself from the harshness of the sun by hydrating your skin with a moisturizer that has built-in sunscreen, such as the Superdefense Triple Action Moisturizer from Clinique. "Elle" magazine praises the product, which is aimed at individuals with particularly dry skin. The moisturizer defends your face against the sun and its unwanted effects, including wrinkles and brown spots.
Defense Daily Moisturizer
For a rapid-absorbing and light formula, opt for the 24/7 Defense Daily Moisturizer by Lily B. "Seventeen" admires the healing, non-oily moisturizer, which includes sea algae to soothe and nourish your complexion -- no matter how dry your skin is. Apart from sea algae, the moisturizer features many moisturizing components, such as apricot oil and jojoba oil.
Precision Ultra Correction Lift Day Cream
From crow's feet to little fine lines, no one is happy to notice signs of aging. If aging is your primary skincare concern, moisturize your complexion with a moisturizer that targets that issue, such as the Precision Ultra Correction Lift by Chanel. "Good Housekeeping" raves about the moisturizer, which evens out your skin, helps diminish wrinkles and enhances firmness, all the while providing intense moisture. Also, if you're planning a day at the beach, the cream has an SPF of 15.
