    What is the Best Moisturizer Combination for Your Skin?

    Moisturizer should be an essential component of any skincare regimen. But you can get the most from your moisturizer if you:

    1. Choose the right moisturizer for your skin type
    2. Select complimentary products for your skin care goals

    Hale Cosmeceuticals gives you quick guide for selecting the right product combinations to replenish and maintain proper skin hydration as you work toward healthier, younger-looking skin.

    Selecting the Right Moisturizer for Your Skin Type

    The absolute essentials to any proper skincare routine include cleansing and moisturizing. To sufficiently replenish hydration after a day of exposure to the elements, you need to make sure you get the right formula for your skin type.As a general rule:

    • Oily skin types need a water-based lotion
    • Dry (and some sensitive skin) types need an oil-based cream

    However, there is some play with these rules. For instance:

    Skin Type Factor Moisturizer Recommendation Recommended Products
    Dry/Combination Humid summer climate Switch to water-based lotion    Soft Finishing Moisturizer   C-Fine Milk Lotion   Re-Fine Milk Lotion
    Dry Arid summer climate Continue with oil-based cream       H2 Rapid Diffusion Therapy Cream
    Combination Arid summer climate May opt to alternate cream and lotion, usually cream at night for deep hydration, lotion during the day under sunscreen and makeup  
    Sensitive skin   Must identify irritants in order to determine best moisturizer type  

    New skincare technologies can also simplify moisturizer selection. Rather than switching moisturizers because of the season/weather, you may simply look for a balanced formula with the most potent ingredients for moisture replenishment and/or moisture locking, such as:

    • Hyaluronic acid
    • Hydrogen

    However, to find the right moisturizer, you do have to know your skin type. If you're not sure, take our Personal Skin Assessment.

    Moisturizer Enhancements Formulated for Your Skincare Goals

    Once you've found the right moisturizer, you can look for other serums and treatments to enhance the effects of your moisturizer. The products you want will depend on your skincare goals. Some of the most common moisturizer boosters include:

    Skincare Technology Skincare Goal How It Works Products
    Antioxidants Skin repair, anti-aging Antioxidants, like Vitamins A, C and E, neutralize free radicals that damage the natural composition of proteins and other components of the dermal matrix.    O.R.A.C. Lifting Complex   C-Fine Super Serum   20% Vitamin C Serum with Ferulic Acid
    Anti-inflammatory Reduced redness and sensitivity There are a number of ingredients that interfere with the inflammatory response, helping to soothe skin and reduce redness, itching and sensitivity    Royal Silhouette Serum   Profile-K
