Best Moisturizers for Day AND Night
Whether it’s stress, hormones or just another candle on the birthday cake, our skin’s needs change. If the moisturizer that worked like a dream in your thirties is now a full-fledged nightmare in your forties (and fifties), it’s time to reevaluate. But, I confess. Up until a few years ago, I generally skipped moisturizer. With oilier skin, it just didn’t seem necessary. Of course, now it’s a must. Especially since glycolic acids, AHAs and retinol products are an established part of my routine. But I’m pretty particular. I want something that’s not too rich nor heavily scented but still packed with active ingredients.
Daytime is all about a great moisturizer/sunscreen combo. At night, I look for something soothing with avocado, jojoba or sunflower oils. Bonus points if they boast ultra-hydrating ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. So, let’s take a look at my personal favorites – the best moisturizers for day and night (and yes, I’ve tried them all!).
