Great Moisturizers For A Great Face
Winter, spring, summer or fall, your skin is constantly under siege from pollution, sunlight and other environmental factors. All of these, plus a healthy dose of weather can add up to dry, rough, older looking skin. In fact, aging is not only a matter of collagen loss, but a direct result of skin that is too dry.

One of the best ways to hydrate your skin is with a great moisturizer used in the morning and at night. And in most cases, you'll want to use a lighter moisturizer in the morning and a heavier one at night. The new generation of moisturizers not only protects your skin from the elements but also slow down the aging process. We've found a few that work well any time of day as well as some that even include a sheer tint so you can skip foundation all together.

Neutrogena Ageless Restoratives 3 in 1 Skin Enhancer is available from Amazon, Target, ULTA or Drugstore.com as well as many drugstores nationwide for around $20.00. Made with a sheer tint it hydrates with glycerin, smoothes fine lines and protects your skin from UVA/UVB rays. This all-purpose moisturizer is perfect for daytime by saving you the added step of adding foundation.

Origins 'Starting Over' moisturizer contains mimosa and other plant ingredients to not only hydrate your skin but also reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Designed to be used in the morning and at night you can find it on their website for around $45.00
