Determine your skin type
Is your skin dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal? You should choose a moisturizer based on your skin type.
Dry skin may show premature signs of aging, like fine lines and age spots. Protect your skin from harsh UV rays and environmental damage with a daytime moisturizer with SPF. For night, go for maximum hydration with an enriching night cream that replenishes your skin with revitalizing nutrients. Night-time is when you can target specific zones prone to loss of skin elasticity like neck and chin.
Oily skin needs a light, balancing moisturizer with SPF for day. The best day moisturizer will be oil free and won’t clog pores. For night, use a light, vitamin-enriched moisturizer to keep your skin smooth and soft. Guard against under-eye puffiness with an under-eye cream.
For normal and combination skin, choose a moisturizer with SPF for daytime. For night, choose a skin-repairing serum that keeps skin smooth and young-looking.
Sensitive skin needs extra protection from environmental damage during the daytime. Choose a mild and gentle moisturizer with SPF for daytime. For night, choose a nutrient-based cream that restores skin elasticity.
All skin types are vulnerable to changes in weather and the environment. Protect your skin from sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles. In the summer, wear a wide-brimmed hat, and protect your skin from mid-day sun exposure. During the winter, skin needs extra hydration, and you may find you need to switch to a different night cream.
