Moisturizing from Head to Toe
Moisturizing is the process of adding hydration to the skin to make up for the effects of evaporation that takes place during the day. Typically, dermatologists recommend using a facial moisturizer twice daily: once in the morning and once before bed.
In addition, doctors normally advise patients to apply a moisturizing body lotion from the neck down after bathing and as needed to address signs of dryness. After hand washing or throughout the day, a hand lotion can be worked into the skin to moisturize on the fingers, palms and backs of the hands. The menu at the left will allow you to easily shop for moisturizers for the body and hands as well as for the face.
Facial Moisturizers for Every Skin Type
Dermatologists classify facial skin as one of five different types depending on its characteristics, and facial moisturizers are typically formulated to meet the hydration needs of one particular skin type.
You can find moisturizers that help to balance combination complexions and that deeply hydrate dry skin. Lightweight moisturizers that nourish oily skin without leaving it feeling greasy are available, and there are also extra gentle moisturizers for sensitive complexions. If your face is not a dry, oily, combination or sensitive type, you can choose from an assortment of normal skin type moisturizers.
Age-Fighting Moisturizing Formulas
If you're concerned about signs of aging, an anti-aging moisturizer from a dermatologist skin care brand can help you to meet your skin's hydration needs while addressing lines, wrinkles and reductions in skin elasticity. These skin care products
contain therapeutic ingredients that repair, smooth and protect the complexion to promote a more youthful appearance.
