According to the Mayo Clinic, the goal of a good face moisturizer is the prevention and treatment of dry skin. It also serves as an aid in improving tone and texture of the skin. Some moisturizers contain humectants, which act as a barrier to keep in water. Products recommended by a dermatologist are generally more reliable and trustworthy. They are also easily found in grocery and drug stores because packaging will usually say "Dermatologist Recommended" right on it.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer is a light-feeling moisturizer designed to leave the face smooth. It is non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores and cause acne. It also contains SPF 15 to protect skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays. This helps to prevent premature wrinkles. It is recommended for all skin types and has no fragrance. In addition, it can be used underneath makeup for a flawless application.

Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion

Not only is Eucerin dermatologist preferred, it is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation. This moisturizer contains SPF 30 to help block UV rays. It is absorbed easily and is non-greasy, making it ideal for use under makeup. It is appropriate for sensitive skin because it is non-comedogenic and perfume free, but is suitable for all skin types. This product contains lactic acid, a proven anti-aging ingredient that is extracted from milk. It works by exfoliating dead surface skin cells.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Fresh Moisture

Neutrogena describes this moisturizer as being lightweight without leaving behind any residue. It is formulated with a multi-vitamin complex of vitamins A, C and E, making it a perfect aid for dryness or shine. It is non-comedogenic and contains humectants. Humectants help increase water in the skin without causing clogged pores, making this product perfect for all skin types. A dime-sized amount of product should be smoothed over the entire face and neck.
