Which Type of Moisturizer is Best for Your Skin Type?

Three women who use all different types of moisturizer look at the camera while laughing.

Keeping your skin hydrated and healthy for radiant skin is a pretty straightforward affair — just apply moisturizer, right? Well, yes and no. If you’re not using the right type of moisturizer for your unique skin type, you could be missing out on some major benefits — or worse, causing your skin to be more dehydrated or inflamed than it needs to be! In order to nourish your skin and maintain your healthy glow, you need to use luxury skincare products that are tailored to your particular skin type.

Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with moisturizer for all skin types and the best Biologique Recherche moisturizers for every skin type!

Infographic for Which Biologique Recherche Moisturizer is Best for Your Skin

Best Type of Moisturizer for Your Unique Skin

Normal Skin

Those with normal skin types are the envy of skincare fanatics everywhere because it means you can use a variety of products without having to worry about skin irritation or blemishes! If you have a “normal” skin type that means you have little-to-no blemishes, and your pores are just barely visible to the naked eye. Every type of moisturizer, toner, and cleanser is at your fingertips!

Combination Skin

Combination skin can be tricky, but luckily there is a wide variety of essential skincare products that you can use to keep your skin glowing all year long. Combination skin has the characteristics of both oily and normal and/or dry skin. Oftentimes those with combination skin have large pores, occasional blemishes, and a shiny appearance in the naturally oily areas of the face (such as the T-zone.) Outside of the T-zone, however, those with combination skin might also have tight pores, dryness, and a matte appearance. For this reason, moisturizers for all skin types won’t work for combination skin types. You need a type of moisturizer that keeps your dry areas moisturized but your skin’s naturally oily areas regulated.

A type of moisturizer from Biologique Recherche for sensitive skin.

Sensitive Skin

Those with sensitive skin know that trying out new products can end in disaster. Sensitive skin generally means your skin is easily irritated by certain products and often experiences symptoms such as dryness, itchiness, or redness. For these skin types, you need a type of moisturizer that can soothe existing redness while also keeping your skin hydrated without irritating the delicate balance.

Dry Skin

Dry skin isn’t just a winter skincare issue! Those with dry skin year-round — usually caused by small pores — often experience skin that feels rough, tough, and firm. Dry skin, like sensitive skin, may also show occasional redness and irritation, and is more prone to a lack of elasticity which can cause fine lines and early signs of aging. Though you may think that those with dry skin types can use moisturizers for all skin types (moisture is moisture after all, right?), the best face products for dry skin actually contain special hydrating ingredients to help their skin retain moisture throughout the day.

Oily Skin & Acne-Prone Skin

Those who suffer from oily or acne-prone skin may think that any type of moisturizer is their enemy — but that’s simply not true! Moisturizers can actually be one of the best products to fight adult acne! Caused by enlarged pores that produce excessive amounts of oil which can lead to frequent blemishes, oily skin needs specialized moisturizers with Biologique Recherche acne formulations that can hydrate while also keeping oil production in check.

A type of moisturizer from Biologique Recherche for hyperpigmentation.

Mature Skin & Skin With Hyperpigmentation

Mature skin refers to the delicate skin of those over 60, while hyperpigmentation refers to certain spots of the skin that are darker than others (such as brown spots or discoloration caused by sun damage). While the two conditions often go hand-in-hand, the type of moisturizer each skin type needs can vary.
