The Best Daily Moisturizer For Aging Skin
My search for the best daily moisturizer for aging skin has been a long one, not least because the air is so drying here. But my skin is also highly sensitive, so I needed a daily moisturizer that could soothe my dry, itchy skin and rehydrate and moisturize it without making it red or irritated.
Luckily, I did manage to find a moisturizer for aging skin that fit the bill exactly, and that’s why I call it my Ideal Daily Moisturizer. In this post, I’ll tell you all about what makes this moisturizer so ideal, in case you’re using a less-than-ideal moisturizer and could use an upgrade!
Why Skin Needs Hydration And Moisture
Did you know that hydration and moisture are not interchangeable terms? I was surprised to learn that too! Hydration typically refers to water, and is inextricable from your body’s overall water content. (If you struggle to stay hydrated, check out my tips for drinking more water.)
Hydrating ingredients attract water to the outermost layers of your skin, while moisturizing ingredients lubricate your skin, forming a barrier of natural oils that helps seal in hydration. Your skin needs both to stay balanced, and my Ideal Daily Moisturizer uses both to instantly quench dry skin and lock in moisture.
What’s In It? Ideal Daily Moisturizer Ingredients
My Ideal Daily Moisturizer features a variety of ingredients that promote firm, healthy, hydrated skin, including:
- Glycerin: The most effective humectant used in skincare products, glycerin draws water to hydrate and soften skin.
- Squalene: Mimics your skin’s natural oils for healthier, more vibrant skin, and has natural antioxidant properties to help fight skin damage.
- Hyaluronic Acid: This sugar naturally occurs in our skin to attract water and help keep it hydrated. It can hold 1,000 times its own weight in water!
- Niacinamide: Also known as Vitamin B3, this ceramide helps to visibly reduce enlarged pores and improve skin’s texture and appearance.
- Plant Extracts: Chamomile, aloe vera, and other plant extracts help to reduce inflammation, soften skin, and protect it from damage.
How To Use It
My Ideal Daily Moisturizer makes a great everyday moisturizer, and it’s so easy to use. Just apply a nickel-sized amount to your face and neck as the last step in your evening routine, and the second-to-last step in your morning routine. (You should always make SPF the last step of your morning routine!)
The light consistency of this moisturizer will leave your skin looking and feeling soft and hydrated.
Why You’ll Love It
We’ve covered what goes into my Ideal Daily Moisturizer, but there’s plenty that’s not in it too! This daily face moisturizer is vegan, paraben-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free, talc-free, and cruelty-free.
Another huge benefit is that it provides anti-aging benefits without irritating sensitive skin. I’ve had a lot of negative experiences with moisturizers in the past, but I’ve never had a problem with this one (or any of the other Timeless by Jillee products, for that matter!)
But I’m not the only one who’s a fan of this moisturizer! Check out these reviews from readers who have tried it:
I bought the Ideal Daily Moisturizer from Jillee’s shop and I love it! It’s not greasy and it leaves my skin so soft. Also the smell is divine. Love it!!Pam G.
My face feels so soft after using the daily moisturizer. I can’t go without it.Ingri S.
I have found my morning routine which includes this moisturizer. My skin feels soft and it looks better. I am so glad I made this purchase.Carol H.
Like Jillee, I have very sensitive skin, so I always hesitate to try new skin care products. I’ve used her new serum with no problem, so when she had her recent sale, I decided to try this Daily Moisturizer. I’ve been using it now for a couple of weeks, and I’ve noticed that my rosacea has mostly gone away. I’ve been using a gel cream on some areas of my face to help with the rosacea, but since using this Daily Moisturizer, I’ve only used it in a couple of places. This cream is very rich and soaks in very quickly; there’s no heavy, oily feeling at all. Also, a little goes a long way. Very glad I tried this moisturizer!Elizabeth K.
