Finally the weather is starting to ease up and get warm.
Here’s hoping that the snow never comes back. With the sun shining again and warmer weather on the way, it’s important to keep your face moisturized. Many people think that it’s only important to moisturize in the winter. That’s not true. Your skin still needs hydration, but it may not need as heavy of a moisturizer.
So I did a little digging and found these three moisturizers that had the highest ratings and customer reviews. I also tried them and found that all of them work well. My favorite is definitely the Neutrogena moisturizer. It hydrates your skin without leaving a filmy or greasy feeling.
Also, a quick tip for hunting for the perfect moisturizer- always look for oil-free and non-comedogenic (which means it won’t clog your pores), especially if you have acne-prone skin. If it just says “dermatologist recommended” that doesn’t mean it’s oil-free and non-comedogenic. So be wary of all those fancy products on the shelves, and go get that summer glow on!
This is the Oil-Free moisturizer made by Neutrogena. Beware though, it doesn’t have any sun protection. However, Neutrogena also makes face cream with sun block built in, and it is just as good, except with a few different ingredients mixed in. I have sensitive skin so I try not to apply sunblock on my face everyday. These Neutrogena moisturizers are super hydrating and don’t leave a film like other moisturizers do. One application is good enough for the day. One downside though is that if you have super dry skin, you may have to put extra cream in those dry areas.
This product literally will make your skin glow. After applying it you can see these tiny shiny bits. Aveeno calls them light diffusers that make your skin glow. Regardless, it works great and moisturizes with a pretty scent. This is great for people with slightly dull skin who want to really make their skin glow. However, if you have oily skin, this is not the product for you.
I didn’t even know this existed until I did some research in beauty and health mags. This moisturizer is awesome for your face and also protects it from the sun. It is made especially for sensitive skin. I used it all during my vacation last week, and it never felt greasy at all. In fact, my face looked awesome, even after a full day in the sun. The only downside is that it smells a little like sunblock, but the scent goes away after awhile. It is also more difficult to find on shelves but is generally available in drugstores. I totally recommend it, especially if you’re an out-doorsy person.
