Moisturizing your skin is important when it comes to keeping skin looking its best—youthful, radiant and healthy—and a high-performance moisturizer is a vital part of any skincare routine. It deeply hydrates and nourishes skin plus delivers targeted anti-aging benefits. It’s typically applied after your cleanser and serum, but before sunscreen.
In the morning, you might prefer a more lightweight moisturizer cream or lotion. Ones with SPF are also favorites for extra protection. At night, reach for a richer formula for extra nighttime nourishment. Did you know skin loses more moisture at night? While you sleep, skin’s temperature rises and moisture loss peaks. It’s important to keep skin extra hydrated with an intensive night creme.

How to Apply Moisturizer on Your Face
A frequently asked skincare question is how to apply moisturizer on your face. Use your moisturizer after applying your cleanser and serum. Apply on clean, slightly damp skin for best results. You can warm the product between your hands and pat it onto your skin, then gently massage it in until it absorbs. Apply it all over your face and neck, morning and night.
In addition to knowing how to apply moisturizer, it’s important to know what kind of moisturizer to use.
