No matter the season, proper skin care should definitely be a major factor. From sweat prone skin, to sun sensitivity, it’s a guarantee that skin-care experts can help you to maintain your skin's natural vibrancy and beauty. As the season’s change, so should your daily beauty regimen; but one thing that should stay consistent is your moisturizer. If you have found a moisturizer that works for you, be it for sunscreen, acne, dryness, sensitivity, oily or combination skin, stick with it.

To have healthy skin, one should invest time into some sort of daily skin care regimen that includes using a facial wash, toner, moisturizer and an occasional mask. But, where it gets tricky is that no two people have the same skin type. The moisturizer you put on your body isn’t necessarily wise to put on your face. Paula Begoun of Beautypedia and Cosmetics Cop recommends Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Tone Correcting Moisture SPF 30. This moisturizer is packed with ingredients to brighten skin while adding radiance, Vitamin C to reduce dark spots and even skin tone, Retinol|SA which works to continuously renew skin throughout the day, and Helioplex which protects skin from UVA rays and helps to prevent future discoloration.

One of the best daily moisturizing lotions according to "Essence" magazine's 2011 Beauty Awards is Eucerin Daily Strength Body Creme. This is a lightweight version of the 'original' lotion and it still tackles those hard-core dry skin issues. It is smooth and creamy and perfect for all-over body coverage and protection. Essence experts also agree that Ash Busters for face coverage category is Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum; a very gentle, silky serum that combats facial skin sagging, discoloration and textured roughness.

"Women's Health" magazine recently had its annual beauty faves award, and the results are in. Women's Health experts pick Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30, which is packed with advanced sun protection, total soy complex and natural light diffusers to even out skin tones. Gentle enough for sensitive skin and daily use, this moisturizer is also oil-free, hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and good for premature aging. It is lightweight and protects skin as well as adding moisturize.

Now, if you want to go a more cost affective avenue, another best daily moisturizing lotion is Lubriderm Intense Skin Repair Body Lotion, also by "Women's Health" magazine experts. It is excellent for rough, dry skin. It uses a HydraRelease technology, which gives 24 hours of skin protection and moisture. It also strengths skin's natural elasticity leaving skin healthier, smoother and softer to the touch. Lubriderm is safe for oily, dry, combination and even sensitive skin types. It is also hypoallergenic.

One thing is for sure, everyone needs to have a good moisturizing lotion which works best for their particular skin type. And since lotion is usually the last step in daily skin care regimens, it would makes sense to also have your wash, toner (facial) and treatments (both body & facial) compliment your skin type as well. Remember to keep it simple.
