Your face moisturizer questions answered
What is La Roche-Posay’s best face moisturizer for dry skin?
La Roche-Posay offers a wide variety of facial moisturizers and face lotions depending on your skin needs. For those with normal to sensitive skin, use our prebiotic skincare, Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer or Toleriane Double Repair Face Lotion with SPF, to help replenish moisture and restore skin’s natural protective barrier.
For those with ultra-sensitive, or allergy-prone skin, we recommend Toleriane Ultra Soothing Repair Moisturizer for Face. This moisturizing face cream, tested on allergy-prone skin, helps to restore skin’s natural protective barrier and is suitable for skin that is sensitive to certain ingredients such as parabens, fragrance and drying alcohol.
What is La Roche-Posay’s best face moisturizer for oily skin?
We recommend Effaclar Mat Moisturizer for oily skin. This lightweight moisturizer provides hydrating benefits while leaving the skin looking and feeling matte.
Can a body moisturizer be used as a moisturizer for face?
When indicated on the packaging, a body moisturizer can be used on the face. Lipikar Balm AP+ is a moisturizer for dry to extra-dry skin on the face and body. This Intense repair moisturizing cream helps to rebalance your skin’s microbiome and is clinically tested to reduce dry, rough skin and provide daily relief.
What happens if you don't moisturize your face?
Moisturizing the face everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Hydrating our skin is key to protecting the skin barrier and can even visibly help plump skin and provide a more youthful appearance.
Should I moisturize after every shower?
Dermatologists recommend moisturizing after showers and baths to hydrate the skin and help prevent the effects of dry skin. Exposure to hot water, steam and soap may worsen dry skin and rashes, such as eczema, and so, post-shower moisturizing is key to hydrate the skin after each shower.
When should I apply face moisturizer?
Dermatologists generally recommend moisturizing your face in the morning before applying sunscreen and in the evening as a last step in your skin care routine.
What is the difference between a face lotion and face cream?
A face lotion typically has a texture that is lightweight, non-greasy, and ideal for oily, normal, or moderately dry skin. By contrast, a face cream typically has a rich texture, provide enhanced hydrating benefits, and is ideal for normal to very dry skin.
Does a moisturizer help with the visible signs of aging?
Skin hydration is essential in maintaining the protective skin barrier. More specifically, some face moisturizers containing an ingredient called hyaluronic acid are helpful in improving the elasticity and cohesion of the skin barrier. Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule in skin aging and skin hydration. Formulas with hyaluronic acid help to maintain moisture in the skin and can help skin look and feel more plump.
What is the difference between a night face cream and a day face cream?
A night face cream provides hydration through the night and complements your daytime face moisturizer.
For normal to dry skin, we recommend Toleriane Double Repair Face Lotion with SPF in the morning to provide daily UV protection and hydration. In the evening, we recommend Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer to replenish moisture and restore the skin’s natural protective barrier.
For ultra sensitive skin, we recommend using Toleriane Ultra Moisturizer for Face, formulated in a comforting cream texture, in the morning to intensely hydrate and helps soothe skin. In the evening, we recommend Toleriane Ultra Night Face Cream which is formulated in a soothing gel-cream that helps to lock in hydration through the morning.
Do I apply a serum before or after a face moisturizer?
Dermatologists recommend applying your serum before your face moisturizer for optimum benefits.
