The cornerstone to every skincare regimen is the moisturizer. As ubiquitous as face cream has become, choosing the best face moisturizer for your skin can be tricky. Our skin tends to be “moody”, changing from season to season, and even throughout the monthly cycle. Additionally, certain parts of our face tend to need different moisturizing formulas than others. ...
In order to be effective, a hydrating moisturizer must be suited for your skin type. It should contain natural emollients (moisturizing ingredients) such as shea butter or natural seed oils, jojoba, avocado or flaxseed (found in our Organic Omega line of facial oils and creams). “Daily moisturizer” typically means that this has a lightweight formulation, making it ideal for daily use during warm or moderate weather. If you’re looking for such a moisturizer with added anti-aging benefits, check out Nano Hydrator. In addition to moisturizing ingredients such as jojoba and avocado oils, it also contains supercharged anti-aging active ingredients such as peptides, antioxidants and fruit extracts.
The best face moisturizer for dry skin are those with a heavier, richer consistency. These face creams are ideal for colder or drier weather, or anyone in need of extra hydration, and can be used during the day or as part of your evening routine.
One question we are often asked is whether it’s OK to skip the moisturizer if one has oily skin. Quite frankly, the answer is an emphatic NO. Though it may sound counterintuitive, oily skin needs hydration. When sensing that the skin is dry, your body sends the command for oil glands to produce more oil, thus making the problem worse. The advice for oily skin types is to use a daily lightweight face lotion. Our Nano Clarifying Hydrator is formulated for oily or combination skin. It has a lightweight consistency and is absorbed quickly. It also contains ingredients that help the body regulate oil production, as well as bamboo powder, which soaks up excess oils and reduces shine.
What about sensitive skin, what makes for the best face moisturizer for sensitive skin? Those with sensitive skin should first be wary of moisturizers with artificial fragrance or colors. Other ingredients to look out for are sulfates, parabens, high concentrations of salicylic acid and sharp essential oils such as peppermint or menthol. Our recommendation for sensitive skin is Blue Butterfly Balm. While not being a traditional face cream, this skin soothing balm contains calming ingredients such as Blue Butterfly Pea Flower and gives immediate, visible relief to irritated skin while providing up to 24 hour of hydration.
Now that we covered oily skin, sensitive, and dry, what’s the best moisturizer for normal skin? If your skin doesn’t usually get super dry or becomes easily irritated and red, it’s fair to assume you have “normal” skin. But normal skin doesn’t need to look...normal. Detox Moisturizer is a hydrating face lotion with botanical extracts that draw out impurities and environmental pollutants leaving skin clean, vibrant and moisturized. The lightweight formula absorbs immediately into the skin making it perfect for daily use.
