There is a lot of info out there about moisturizers. Be careful what you read and follow online. I tested some searches online and was surprised by the major sites that got it wrong. For example, telling people to use petroleum based products for dry skin, etc. We should avoid any petroleum based products as they strip our skin of natural oils and in some cases cause cancer. The ingredients in products you choose should read like a salad, simple and natural.
Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in caring for your skin. Basically, moisturizers hold water in the outermost layer of skin. They also act as a temporary barrier, protecting the skin, improving skin tone and texture, masking imperfections and helping to heal the skin. Many moisturizers contain some combination of humectants, emollients and other ingredients.
Normally, the moisturizer that’s best for you depends on many factors, including your skin type, your age and whether you have specific conditions, such as acne. My Nectarel lotions and creams are good for all skin types. A lot of it will come down to personal preference.
A lil tip, the best time to moisturize is right after showering and/or washing your face when it is already wet and moist from water. A cream or lotion will lock in the moisture.

My personal favorite for my face is the Honey Almond Cream which I use day and night. It just FEELS good when you put it on and I love how my skin looks after putting it on. It is not heavy or greasy. It can be worn under make up as well.
I use Cocoa Butter Lotion on my body after showering and the Honey Almond Lotion on my hands or to refresh my face during the day. I do switch them out, alternating what I use on some days. Kind of depending on what I feel like using that day.
If you’re not sure where to start, if I had to choose one for my face it would be the cream all day long. Either lotion is great for moisturizing your hands and body. They both feel wonderful and your skin looks amazing after applying them.
Do not forget to care for and protect your lips. The mouth is where we often first notice signs of aging like fine lines, thinning skin, wrinkles and sun damage.
Many commercial products out there are petroleum based and contain alcohol which dries your skin, makes you lick your lips and exacerbates dry, chapped skin. Use products with natural ingredients that protect and heal your skin.
