The Best Moisturizer for Your Skin Right Now

In some ways, skin-care can be a fair playing field. Exhibit A? Everyone needs to moisturize. And that holds whatever’s going on with your skin on a given day, whether it looks more oily than usual or you’re dealing with a fresh breakout along your jawline. Despite some common assumptions — like you can skip the moisturizer if your skin leans oily — daily moisturizer is a must.

That’s because skin needs both water and oil in the form of hydration and moisture, respectively. The deeper layers of skin need water to stay plump and avoid dehydration, whereas your skin barrier requires oil to resist external aggressors, seal in moisture, and keep dryness and flakes from setting in. All to say: Moisturizer is a must for all skin, no exceptions.

That said, not all moisturizer is created equal. Certain moisturizing formulas may be better for certain skin situations, like oil-free moisturizers for those who tend to get greasy and richer textures for super-dry skin in the winter. That’s why Glow Recipe offers three moisturizers, including the new Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream. Not sure where to start? This mini-guide will point you to the best formula for whatever you’re facing today.

The best moisturizer for oily skin

If skin feels oilier than usual, consider an oil-free moisturizer like Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer. Rather than potentially overdoing it with oil, it delivers lightweight hydration via hyaluronic acid, nutrient-packed watermelon, and antioxidant-rich botanicals. It won’t clog pores, add any sort of oily sheen to skin, or feel heavy on skin; rather, the cooling gel-emulsion sinks in quickly and provides lasting moisture without the weight. While it can be used for dry and sensitive types, its thoughtful formulation makes it the perfect match for oilier types.

The best moisturizer for combination skin

Is your skin giving you some mixed signals? It’s super-common: maybe you’re dealing with breakouts and flakiness, or dry cheeks with a super-shiny forehead. Whatever the exact combo, a moisturizer that can address both is key. That’s the goal of Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, which is stacked with five weights of hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid (a new, super-plumping peptide), and ice willowherb. It absorbs quickly and without a greasy feel, but also supplies hydration to where it’s most needed, courtesy of the hyaluronic acid. That ice willowherb, meanwhile, helps control oil and supports the skin barrier, making it a win-win for balancing confused skin.

The best moisturizer for dry skin

Dealing with dry, flaky, red, or generally stressed-out skin? That means skin may be lacking in oil, so a formula that offers more comprehensive moisture and barrier support is non-negotiable — since it offers exactly what skin needs to look and feel healthy. You get all that and more with Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream, which replenishes and soothes skin with a combination of electrolyte-rich banana, chia seed, magnesium, and cica. With its whipped texture, it feels restorative without suffocating skin — plus, the non-comedogenic formula won’t cause breakouts or clog pores, in case that’s happening, too. 

While we’re here, your face isn’t the only part of your body that needs regular (read: daily)  moisturizing. The same goes for below the neck, which is why a nourishing body cream, like Watermelon Glow Pink Dream Body Cream, is just as essential for keeping skin healthy and comfortable on a regular basis. With that, consider yourself set for properly moisturized skin from head to toe.
