Wearing sunscreen is key to any anti-aging skin care routine. Of course, you might think that a nice tan will make you glow, but that’s what bronzer is for. Over time, the sun’s UV rays can damage your skin and cause wrinkles, dark spots or worse. So, yeah, wearing SPF is pretty important — and so is keeping your face moisturized.
You can use this moisturizer on your face every day to protect it from the sun and keep it hydrated. According to the product’s description, it contains ultra-fine zinc oxide to provide broad-spectrum SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection. However, unlike traditional sunscreens, it has a non-greasy finish and absorbs quickly.
Additionally, it contains hyaluronic acid, which helps skin retain moisture, and niacinamide, a vitamin B3 compound that’s been found to help manage things like acne, wrinkles, rosacea and pigmentation.
The CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is for those with dry, sensitive, oily or acne-prone skin — anyone can benefit from using it. Like all of the brand’s products, it was developed with dermatologists, too.
Wear it on its own or under your makeup. It’s an easy way to keep your face protected from the sun and keep it moisturized.

1. Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer SPF 25, $39.99
Olay Regenerist is an incredibly popular anti-aging moisturizer, but this is the Whip version, which turns from a cream to a liquid upon skin contact. This makes it more breathable, so it feels lighter on your skin. This version also contains SPF 25 and niacinamide to protect and repair skin from UV rays.
2. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, $26.49
If moisture is your main concern, you can’t go wrong with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel. It’s especially great for those with oily skin because it goes on like a light gel that absorbs quickly and feels incredibly light. It contains hyaluronic acid to attract and retain moisture. However, there is no SPF, so you’ll need to apply one on top of it before heading outside.
While these other moisturizers are meant to protect skin during the day, this moisturizer contains retinol to help repair skin overnight. According to the product description (and many reviewers), you’ll wake up with improvements to any fine lines and wrinkles, your skin will look brighter and firmer, dark spots will fade, and your pores will look smaller — all good things.
