No-fuss moisturizers to keep that face from looking like plywood

When it comes to maintaining healthy and well-hydrated skin on your face, nothing beats a moisturizer.

A lot of people swear by drinking lots of water to keep their skin hydrated, but that’s really a major skincare myth. When it comes to maintaining healthy and well-hydrated skin on your face, nothing beats a moisturizer.

These creams do two things: They create a layer that helps your skin retain existing moisture. And they also restore its natural balance with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and AHAs, which are known for holding water, emollients that fill in dry gaps like wrinkles and lines, or ceramides that also retain moisture. Look for a moisturizer that works best with your skin type (for example, avoid oil- or petroleum-based creams if you have acne-prone skin).


The organic Neal’s Yard Frankincense Hydrating Cream has frankincense and myrrh, which rejuvenates the skin, while filling in fine lines and softening overall texture. The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is a no-fuss hydrator—lightweight, absorbs quickly, and guards the skin from free radicals. Aside from being allergen-, preservative-, and fragrance-free, VMV Hypoallergenics Hydra Balance Smart Moisturizer features virgin coconut oil that fights acne and provides moisture. These are all good for you—like water.
