If I were to be stranded in a desert with just one of my beauty staples, I’d wish it to be my moisturizer. Moisturizers are the holy grail of skincare. Our skin needs moisture just like we need water – every day, all day, and a lot of it.
Infused with hydrating and nourishing ingredients, moisturizers are both drink and food for your skin. One of the biggest myths related to moisturizers is that they are just for dry skin. False!
Even oily skin can get thirsty and dehydrated, and then produce a lot more sebum, but that’s a topic for another day. The fact is, everyone needs a moisturizer, and pick one according to their skin type and troubles.
Today, we have created a list of our best moisturizers for people with different skin concerns.
1. Best Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin is the trickiest skin type. You never know which ingredient can cause a negative reaction. Most regular products have the tendency to cause such reactions because their ingredients are generally harsh for sensitive skin.
Our best pick for such unpredictable skin is the mild yet highly moisturizing Luxe Botanics Kigelia Corrective Moisturizer. It’s a lightweight, mild moisturizer with Kigelia Africana, a powerful purifying agent with skin calming properties.
2. Best Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin
Acne-prone skin is just as tricky as sensitive skin. So many ingredients can cause a flare-up. It differs from person to person. For some it can be one of the oils, for others, it can be silicon. In any case, your best bet is a moisturizer that is not only free of baddies but also infused with ingredients that can prevent acne.
Manuka Doctor ApiClear Facial Moisturizing Lotion has moisturizing Manuka honey and purified bee venom that can do wonder for your acne and blemishes.
3. Best Moisturizer for Aging Skin
Moisture is your biggest defense against age. Half the symptoms of aging skin are due to the depletion of natural moisture. And since our skin loses its own moisture with age, we need to supplement it with moisturizing and nourishing ingredients with strong anti-oxidant properties.
Advanced Ageless Ultimate Moisturizing Cream contains anti-oxidant and much more such as Apocynin and ROS BioNet for complete rejuvenation. Moisturizing ingredients include hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and Coenzyme Q10.
4. Best Fragrance-free Moisturizer
If you are someone who can’t trust skincare products with a strong smell, you are smart. For most products, the fragrance is an indicator of synthetic ingredients that can cause trouble for your skin. So, be wise and chose Scaf Skincare Moisturizer that is our top choice in fragrance hydrator for every day.
It has ingredients such as cold-pressed hemp seed oil that can hydrate your skin from deep within without excess oil. Plus, you get anti-aging peptides to reduce fine lines and early signs of aging.
5. Best Moisturizer for Dry Skin
Regular drugstore moisturizer won’t cut it for your excessively dry skin. You need an intense moisturizer that can keep your skin balanced throughout the day, and that too without greasiness. Our best bet for dry skinned ladies out there is Po Derma Lustre Intense Moisturizer.
With Alpha Lipid Acid, Vitamin C, and DMAE, this moisturizer can do so much more for you. With regular use, you will see better texture, improved tone, and natural glow. And you will forget the fact that you even have dry skin.
6. Best Moisturizer for Oil Skin
We have talked about problematic skin, but when it comes to moisturizer, finding one for oily skin is nothing short of a miracle. What if you tell you, miracles now come in 15 ml bottle. Georgette Klinger Oil-free Skin Balance moisturizer will hydrate your thirsty oily skin while controlling sebum production.
It is a fragrance-free product with soothing ingredients such as Extracts of Apple and Watermelon. With daily use, you will find a clear reduction in greasiness as well.
7. Best Soothing Moisturizer
Ocalm Yuja Hydra Multi Gel Cream is a wonderful moisturizer that is best for skin that needs a little extra pampering. We prefer it right after a skin treatment or procedure. It is also a great moisturizer to use after at-home skin peels or facial cleansing.Its key ingredient, Yuja, doesn’t just hydrate skin but also make it brighter. You will also see a difference in skin texture over time. It has a pleasant scent that adds a luxurious feel to it.
8. Best Overnight Moisturizer
Skincare works best overnight. That’s when our skin is ready to heal and repair. Overnight moisturizers work like a charm for overly dehydrated skin. But not all moisturizers will do a great job. The one we love the most is Herbologia Liquid Crystal Night Cream.
Infused with Squalane, this moisturizer works overnight to create a difference on a cellular level. You will wake up in the morning with supple and softer skin with visible reduction dryness and sagginess.
9. Best Moisturizer for Winter
Winter is harsh on the skin. It can dehydrate the oiliest of all skins. That’s when you need to put your regular moisturizer down and pick a heavy-duty product that can deal with the ruthless weather. Our savior for the season is Herbal Dynamics Beauty Black Rose Damask Rose Concentrate Face Balm.
Yes, it’s not just a moisturizer, it’s a balm to your skin’s rescue. With rose oil, rose extract, and shea butter, this potent moisturizer is a complete weather defense and repair system for your skin.
10. Best Moisturizer for Summer
Summer comes with its own set of skin issues. The scorching heat can rob your skin of its natural moisture. However, your regular moisturizer can turn your skin into a greasy pan in a few hours. Our best pick for Wolf Project Hydrating Lotion.
This lightweight gel lotion absorbs within seconds and doesn’t leave any layer of oil or grease on your face. Your skin will also benefit from its additional anti-aging properties.
11. Best Moisturizer with SPF
If you go out in the sun too often, your biggest struggle must be slathering a layer of sunblock along with your moisturizer, foundation, and whatnot. Unfortunately, most sunblocks can do more harm than good. That is why we call La Parfait Advanced Skin Renewal Day Cream simply life-changing.
This one product will change your entire skincare routine. It is a super-hydrating moisturizer that also doubles up as a complete skin defense system with fast-absorbing SPF 30.
