Moisturizers are typically water-based lotions, creams, gels and serums. They contain ingredients that draw water into the skin (humectants) and others that smooth the skin (emollients).
Moisturizer in your 20s:
Use a hydrating, oil-free moisturizer, and apply to clean, dry skin. We recommend Avéne® Cleanance Hydra Soothing Cream. This moisturizer is especially helpful when used in conjunction with topical acne medications.
Moisturizer in your 30s, 40s:
Your moisturizer should contain antioxidants, like green or white tea, pomegranate, vitamin C, or grape seed extract, which will protect your skin from damaging free radicals. Try iS Clinical® Reparative Moisture Emulsion, iS Clinical® Youth Intensive Creme, or SkinMedica® Dermal Repair Cream for extremely happy and quenched skin.
Moisturizer in your 50s, 60s, 70s+:
A hydrating cream formula that contains a wide-range of ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, peptides, growth factors, and antioxidants is optimum. Go for a multi-tasker like iS Clinical® Youth Intensive Creme or SkinMedica® Dermal Repair Cream to luxuriously nourish, firm, hydrate, brighten and rejuvenate.
