Moisturizer is a fact of life for most people. Ironically, even those with oily skin need to add moisturizer to help combat skin aging – and if the cream has SPF, to help fight sun damage. There’s a wide range out there, from simple lanolin creams to organic lotions that harness the power of plants. Some high-end manufacturers’ products will cost in the hundreds for a small bottle, but many of the best creams with good, simple ingredients can be bought for under $20. Bonus: You can be liberal in your application. For best moisturizing, look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, mineral oils, or glycerin. Also be sure to choose a product aimed at your skin type, whether oily, dry or sensitive.
