A complete daily skin care routine is essential to promoting a health complexion.

You can explore our entire selection online or limit your search to products of a certain type, price range or brand. Then, you can complete your purchase online or find out which of our stores have your preferred moisturizer in stock.

The Benefits of Moisturizing

Throughout the day, moisture evaporates from your skin. Over time, this process can leave the tissue parched and more prone to tightness, flakiness and irritation. Dry skin can also lose its natural luster. Moisturizers address these problems and reduce the risk of them occurring in the future. With each application, moisturizers provide hydration to replace what is naturally lost during the day. Typically, moisturizers are used twice daily as the last step of a skin care regimen after cleansing, toning and applying any treatments. Some people choose to use a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen in the morning and nighttime formulas in the evening. Others apply the same moisturizer morning and night.

Comparing Forms

Moisturizers are available in a wide range of forms.

  • Oils provide the most hydration benefits, as they contain very little water.
  • Moisturizing creams have a silkier consistency and also deeply hydrate skin. Lotions and balms are formulated with more water, making them lighter.
  • Serums are highly concentrated and have a lightweight texture that allows them to become absorbed rapidly by the skin.

Considering Your Skin Type

One of the most important considerations when selecting a facial moisturizer is your skin type.

  • If you have oily skin, look for lightweight moisturizers that are oil free or non-comedogenic.
  • Balms, gels and serums tend to be a good choice for oily complexions.
  • Dry skin requires more intensive hydration from heavier creams and oils, while sensitive skin can benefit from gentle hypoallergenic products.
  • For normal skin types, a lotion or lightweight cream is often a good choice.

You may find that you need a more intensive moisturizer in the winter when the air is drier and a lighter moisturizer during the humid summer months.

Factoring in Your Dermatological Concerns

If you're dealing with a skin care problem, you can find moisturizers to address your concerns while providing hydration.

  • To minimize fine lines and wrinkles, look for firming and anti-aging products.
  • Brightening moisturizers promote more luminous skin and minimize dark spots.
  • For controlling breakouts, you can choose an acne moisturizer that contains ingredients that promote clearer pores.
  • You can also find moisturizers for eczema, rosacea, scars, oversize pores and an array of other conditions.

To increase the effectiveness of these specialty moisturizers, you can try using them along with treatments. Many brands offer products that complement one another's actions, making it easy to create a complete regimen for specific dermatological issues.
