Your skin looks radiant and healthy when it’s well hydrated. To protect it during the day, use a moisturizer that has a broad-spectrum SPF 15 or higher and is packed with antioxidants like green tea, and vitamin C or E. We like: Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream SPF 25. Repair your skin at night with a cream that contains hyaluronic acid, which attracts and seals in moisture. Try: Lancôme High Resolution Night Refill-3X. If you have fine lines, look for a product that also has retinol, to help minimize wrinkles. We like: Philosophy Help Me. Now that you know how to pick the right moisturizers, here’s how to get more out of them:
– Apply your lotion to damp skin. This will help seal in the moisture that’s already there.
– Massage your moisturizer in for at least 15 seconds to boost circulation and maximize absorption.
- When you’re done, always snap the cap or screw the lid on tightly to prevent oxidation, which can decrease the potency of certain ingredients.
