Today’s health tip: Best ways to choose a good moisturizer for skin


Moisturizers with antioxidants such as green tea, chamomile, pomegranate, or licorice root extract may help keep any skin type looking fresh and healthy.

Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals molecules that break down skin cells.

If you’re prone to acne, you’ll also want to look for a non-comedogenic facial moisturizer that won’t clog pores.

For dry skin heavier moisturizer and look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and dimethicone, which help keep skin hydrated.

Avoid extra hot water for showers and when washing your face. Stay hydrated by drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.

Consider using a humidifier at night, or keep a small one on your desk during the day.

Moisturize at least twice a day (more when your skin is especially dry).
