Diverse women applying moisturizer.

Finding the best moisturizer to apply on your face and neck is the first crucial step in kick-starting your skincare routine. These products are the secret to glowing, healthy skin. If you’ve always wanted to get that dewy, fresh look, then a moisturizer that fits your skin type is the answer.

Those with well-balanced and oily skin will benefit from a moisturizer that is light and oil-free. People with dry skin can go for something richer or look for hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid to draw moisture to the skin. If you have sensitive skin, pick hypoallergenic moisturizers that won’t irritate your skin.  

Consistently using moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated, which in effect helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also seals in all the other products you’ve used and creates a barrier, protecting your skin from harmful elements. So, if you’re still on the lookout for the best moisturizer, here are some options that you can choose from and when to use them.

Best for Daytime Use

If you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizer to wear during the day, try using a gel-based product.

Don’t let our tropical weather hinder you from applying moisturizer before heading out of the house! A hot day can make your skin dry and make you look frumpy, and you wouldn’t want that, especially when you’re out and about. You also don’t want the heaviness of a cream to add to that.

Instead of a cream, use a lightweight gel such as POND’S Flawless Radiance Derma+ Hydrating Day Gel. It can give you smooth, radiant skin with its GenActiv™ technology. The DermPerfect™ Complex in this moisturizer will help you achieve a poreless look! Use it right after cleansing and toning, and right before applying sunscreen.

Best for Achieving Glass Skin

Obsessed with getting the milky, glass-like complexion of your favorite K-drama actresses or female K-pop idols? Now, you don’t need to scour online marketplaces to find out what these celebrities are using for their face! POND’S has a line of tone up creams, which is a type of moisturizer that gives you the coveted dewy look.

The POND’S Tone Up Cream contains milk essence and vitamin B3 that brightens your complexion and lightens pimple marks and dark spots. If you’re having problems with hyperpigmentation, then this moisturizer is what you need. Use it during the day after cleansing and right before applying sunscreen.

Best Multi-Purpose Moisturizer

Here’s something for morenas or for the ladies who want to achieve a sun-kissed look without having to spend hours on the beach. POND’S Instabright Glow Up Cream in Golden Sunshine isn’t just a moisturizer for the face. It can double as a primer or highlighter, too! You’ll instantly notice a subtle shimmer that will make your face bright and sport a dewy glow.

Having radiant skin is possible thanks to this product’s vitamin B3+ and hyaluronic acid, which are known to visibly brighten and hydrate skin. After cleansing and toning, use it as the first step before applying the rest of your makeup.

Best for Nighttime Care

Moisturizers help seal in any products that you use in your nighttime skincare routine. 

One of the best times for your skin to fix any concerns is at night while you’re resting and when the production of collagen is at its peak. Because of this, you need a product that will let your skin work for you while you sleep. You can add POND’S Age Miracle Anti-Aging Night Cream to your nighttime routine. It has retinol-C that supports the natural rejuvenation of the skin, working deep into it to work its anti-aging magic. Use this as the last step in your evening skincare routine.

There’s a whole variety of products that you can choose from and will suit your skin type. Make sure to do your research or consult your dermatologist to find out what’s best for your skin’s needs. You can give these four products a try and see whether any of them will become your own best moisturizer.
