OUR BEST ANTI-AGING CREAM FOR DULL SKIN TONE
As skin matures, it can start to appear duller. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone SPF 30 Sunscreen Face Moisturizer is an intense daily anti-aging moisturizer that’s enhanced with rosy pigments to instantly revive the look of skin’s rosy tone. The rich, non-greasy formula smooths gently over skin to nourish it with moisture, while the rosy pigments help to reveal a younger look. Bonus: It’s also formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 30 for built-in sun protection. After cleansing in the morning, smooth this anti-aging cream over your face and gently massage into your skin in a circular motion.
OUR BEST ANTI-AGING CREAM FOR SUN PROTECTION
Speaking of built in sun protection—broad-spectrum sunscreen is a skin care must year-round no matter your age. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Day Lotion SPF 30 is an anti-aging moisturizer formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 30 that works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and firm and brighten skin. Keep in mind, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you should also reapply sunscreen every two hours (or immediately after swimming or sweating), limit your amount of time in the sun (especially during peak hours), seek shade, and wear protective clothing and sunglasses.
OUR BEST ANTI-AGING CREAM FOR VERY DRY OR SENSITIVE SKIN
