If you’re going to spend money on a moisturizer, you want the best, right? You want the product that has the right ingredients and will deliver the exact results you desire. You’ve probably read through lists claiming to have found the holy grail of skincare products, insisting that their favorite really is the best over-the-counter moisturizer.

The truth is: moisturizer isn’t a one-size-fits-all. What works for someone else may not work for you. A product that someone swears is the best moisturizer might not be the best moisturizer for dry skin.

Every moisturizer is different and instead of finding the best of the best, you should focus on finding the best one for you.

To help you find the best moisturizer for mature skin, we’ve put together a list of some of the things you should look for in a moisturizer:

The right ingredients

There is no “miracle” ingredient in skincare. However, there are a lot of ingredients that are proven to help your skin recover and rehydrate.

Let’s take a look at some of those ingredients:


Antioxidants are vitamins and minerals that help to protect your skin from free radicals, which are molecules from the environment that attach themselves to your collagen and damage your skin. While they protect your skin, they also work to renew and rejuvenate it. There isn’t a singular best antioxidant, but there are a few that have proven themselves to be good at reversing the effects of aging and are pretty common in anti-aging moisturizers, like vitamins A, C, and E, retinol, green tea, and resveratrol.

Ingredients that are proven to replenish your skin

As you get older, your skin’s moisture barrier begins to break down, which makes it harder for your skin to lock in any hydration and makes it easier for your skin to become dry. Using skin care products that are designed to replenish the moisture in your skin and lock it in are key to achieving skin that looks plump and healthy. A few ingredients to be on the lookout include ceramides, glycerol, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid.

Ingredients that will restore your skin

Adding moisture to your skin is important, but you also need to find ingredients that will promote skin cell turnover and new growth. They help to stop the breakdown of collagen and firm skin. Ingredients that work to restore your skin include niacinamide, peptides, and retinol.

The right consistency

When you’re choosing a moisturizer, the right thickness is important. If you have dry or itchy skin, you’ll probably want a cream, but if you have oily skin, you’ll want something lighter, like a lotion. The time of day that you are applying it and the time of the year are also important factors to consider when you buy a moisturizer.
