These Are a Dermatologist’s 5 Favorite Hydrating Ingredients for Every Skin Type

There are pretty much two schools of thought when it comes to considering how to choose a moisturizer: "Any lotion-like substance should work, right?" and "I just spent an hour researching specific ingredients, and now I'm more confused."

No matter which group you're in, Mona Gohara, MD, a Connecticut-based board-certified dermatologist, can help. In our latest episode of Dear Derm, Dr. Gohara breaks down exactly how to choose a moisturizer that's right for you, and guess what? It doesn't even require you to know your skin type.

Regardless of whether your skin is dry, oily, or somewhere in between, Dr. Gohara recommends moisturizing every day with a product that includes at least one of her five favorite hydrating ingredients.

One item on that list? Glycerin—which is one of the star ingredients (along with aloe and squalene) in NOW®️ Solutions Blemish Clear Moisturizer—because it draws tons of water into the skin and is super gentle on every skin type.

She's also a big fan of vitamins C and E, but especially loves using them at the same time (a handy combo you can find in NOW®️ Solutions Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid Serum) because they work better together to help brighten, even skin tone, and smooth fine lines.

Watch the video above for the rest of Dr. Gohara's list of go-to ingredients, and you'll be one step closer to feeling like a total pro next time you're shopping for moisturizer.
