These Are The Best, Most Effective Ingredients You Should Look For In A Moisturizer
“Throughout the day, our skin loses moisture,” says Melissa Doft, MD, a plastic surgeon who specializes in skincare and a professor at Weil Cornell Medical College. Moisturizer, as its name implies, will help replenish this moisture and keep your skin hydrated.
“Furthermore, as we age, we lose oil-producing glands in the skin,” Doft says. This can leave skin dried out and more prone to damage. Moisturizers help reverse this process by locking in water and replenishing your skin’s protective barrier.
