It's no secret that moisturizing is key for soft, healthy skin. That said, moisturizing looks a little different for everyone, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. The right moisturizer for oily skin is usually different from the go-to one for dry skin. To help you hydrate and replenish your face, here's a guide to selecting the right moisturizer for your skin type. 


Moisturizer for Normal Skin: Desert Essence Daily Essential Facial Moisturizer 

Normal skin is skin that is balanced, meaning that it’s neither too oily nor too dry. Even if your skin doesn’t typically need extra TLC, your external environments and conditions can still impact it. Integrating a moisturizer into your skincare routine will give your skin effortless radiance. 


If you have normal skin, give it some love with Desert Essence Daily Essential Facial Moisturizer, which blends together jojoba oil, organic aloe and safflower oil for lightweight and non-greasy hydration. It sits beautifully underneath makeup, making it an easy reach for your daily morning or nighttime routine


Moisturizer for Dry Skin: Desert Essence Revitalizing Oils Facial Moisturizer 

Dry skin can feel rough, flakey and itchy, and it can be due to everything from genetics to cold weather. Moisturizing dry skin is vital for keeping it silky soft, but what should you look for in a moisturizer? With dry skin, consider a thick formula with hydrating ingredients.


A nourishing barrier enhancer, Desert Essence Revitalizing Oils Facial Moisturizer harnesses evening primrose, argan and avocado oils to deliver essential fatty acids to dry skin. Plus, it’s wealthy in phytonutrients and antioxidants to help you maintain a smooth complexion.


Moisturizer for Oily Skin: Desert Essence Jojoba Oil 

Oily skin occurs when the skin’s sebaceous glands create excess sebum, the oily substance that keeps the skin moisturized. With oil-prone skin, wash your face regularly and use a toner to help balance the skin. For hydration, lightweight moisturizers are ideal. 


A botanical beauty powerhouse, jojoba oil is specifically great for oily skin because it calms down oily areas while moisturizing drier parts. It also absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. As such, you can support your moisture barrier while managing oiliness. 


Moisturizer for Combination Skin: Desert Essence Balancing Facial Oil 

Combination skin means that you have oily as well as dry or normal areas on your face. For example, your nose may be more prone to oil, while your cheeks may be on the drier side. With combination skin, try a lightweight, oil-free formula on the oily areas and a thick, hydrating formula in drier parts. 


If you're looking for a single moisturizer, Desert Essence Balancing Facial Oil is our favorite botanical multitasker for addressing both oiliness and dryness. This lightweight formula harnesses organic jojoba oil to replenish moisture in dry areas and balance more oil prone spots. To help defend against environmental stressors, it also delivers antioxidants courtesy of organic pomegranate oil. 


Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin: Desert Essence Moringa, Jojoba & Rose Hip Oil 

Having sensitive skin simply means that your skin is more prone to inflammation that results in reactions such as redness, itching and stinging. With sensitive skin, you may want to be mindful of your skincare formulas, as certain ingredients may trigger skin reactions. With sensitive skin, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free moisturizers can especially be helpful. 


Desert Essence Moringa, Jojoba & Rose Hip Oil is a moisturizer that’s free from gluten and artificial dyes and fragrances. What this formula is full of is nurturing botanical ingredients. Moringa provides vitamins and antioxidants, organic jojoba oil delivers balancing moisture and rose hip oil rejuvenates with essential fatty acids and vitamin C. 

Whether you have normal, oily, dry, combination or sensitive skin, pamper and nourish it with moisturizers. With an understanding of your skin type and the formulas that work for it, you can pick out a moisturizer for a smooth, glowy complexion.
