Shot of a teenager applying moisturizer to her face in front of the mirrorhttp:// is key to ensure hydrated and smooth skin, but not all moisturizers are created equal. Here’s a list of some daily moisturizers that are perfect for each skin type.

Normal Skin

If you have a normal skin type, you’re really lucky! Your skin has a good balance and the right amount of moisture. Normal skin types have few imperfections, no sensitivity, and barely any visible pores. 71n-wSH6F8L._SL1500_

Aveeno has great, natural products. We would recommend the Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. This moisturizer is lightweight, airy, and doesn’t grease up your skin.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer is available in most drugstores and on starting at $10.63.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is difficult to deal with because it can be a pain to have and get rid of. Dry Skin produces almost invisible pores, rough skin, patches, more visible lines, and less elasticity. Also, the skin can flake, crack, or peel. clq_7AY3_402x464

The Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Hydrator is a rich yet oil-free cream. The consistency is like water, which helps skin retain hydration.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Hydrator is available at Sephora and for $46.00.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is tricky because the skin can be dry in certain areas and oily in others. Combination skin produces overly dilated pores, blackheads, and shiny skin.


The Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré is a great multitasking moisturizer that primes and hydrates the skin. The combination of shea butter and oils rejuvenates skin for an overall healthy looking complexion.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré is available at Sephora and for $35.00.

Oily Skin

Oily skin can change depending on the season. It occurs when glands in the skin secrete too much oil. Oily skin can produce enlarged pores, a shiny complexion, blackheads, and blemishes.


The Estée Lauder Clear Difference Oil Control Hydrating Gel is an oil-free, lightweight gel that hydrates skin and banishes excess shine on the skin. The effective yet soothing ingredients help calm irritation that comes with breakouts and large pores.

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is very much a trial and error skin type. It’s helpful to find out what you should stay away from things that make it react. Sensitive skin can show up as redness, itching, burning, acne, and dryness.
