There are so many products to choose from, right? How on earth are you supposed to know which is the very best anti-aging moisturizer for your skin?

Although we all inevitably experience aging, the process is intricately personal. At Mario Badescu Skin Care, we’re deeply dedicated to providing seriously customized skin care because it’s the only kind that works. Is your skin still oily and/or experiencing acne breakouts? It’s important to choose an oil-free moisturizer and—to avoid unnecessary sun-related aging—use one with an SPF during the day.

At any stage in life, it’s imperative that you wear sunscreen if you’re using acne treatment products. The goal is to moisturize while preventing sun damage (wrinkles and hyperpigmentation).

Do you have dry skin or has your skin gotten drier with age? An oil-based moisturizer is your best choice in order to prevent the evaporation of water from the skin. Oils are fantastic for sealing in moisture. But don’t limit yourself to any old moisturizer—get the lowdown on the various active ingredients in order to decide which is right for you.

For example:

Hyaluronic Acid is a substance found naturally in the body. The ability to retain water is Hyaluronic Acid’s main claim to fame. Unfortunately, levels of Hyaluronic Acid decrease as we get older. When used in skin care products, it’s perfect for locking in the skin’s natural moisture and preventing the loss of moisture inherent to the aging process. Try our Hydrating Moisturizer with Biocare and Hyaluronic Acid.

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids such as Lactic Acid are perfect for exfoliation! (Buttermilk Moisturizer)

Pentavitin is an effective moisture regulator; it provides serious moisture under even the driest conditions. (The Moisture Magnet with Pentavitin SPF 15)

Topical Vitamin C protects the skin from sun-related damage, reduces inflammation, promotes the production of collagen, diminishes discoloration, and strengthens the skin’s ability to protect itself. (Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C OR Vitamin C Serum, which can be worn alone or under a moisturizer)

Collagen improves the skin's appearance by preventing moisture loss, plumping up the skin, and smoothing out wrinkles. (Collagen Moisturizer SPF 15) Not sure which one is right for you? Take advantage of our online skin analysis!
