What Should You Look for in a Day Cream?

A good dermatologist will always tell you that the best thing you can do for your skin is make sure that you take care of it every day. This is especially true of your face, because it is exposed to sun and to the elements on a daily basis. Depending on your job, your lifestyle, your stress level, your skin may be impacted quite a bit.

If you are also a person who enjoys the outdoors, or who works outdoors, you need to be even more diligent in protecting your skin. If you are a woman, you may be using cosmetics, powders and other forms of makeup that need to be washed off every day. No matter the case, a daily regimen will help maintain the health and youthfulness of your face – and prevent skin conditions from the aggravating, like acne, to the dangerous, like skin cancer.

So how should you maintain your skin on a daily basis? This means a regular regimen of cleansing, moisturizing and skin protection that will help your skin maintain moisture and elasticity. One of the critical components in your daily skin care routine should be a high quality daytime skin cream. While you may be tempted to shop by price, or to pick up any day cream at the grocery store or drug store, you should consider a high quality, dermatologist recommended day cream to moisturize and protect your skin.

A great day cream will be formulated to thoroughly moisturize your skin, provide vitamins and nourishment that restore a glow and soothes any irritation, and that also protects the skin from the sun. You may think that just seeing an SPF rating on a sunscreen is sufficient, but you need a good SPF rating and it should block both UVA and UVB rays.

The other factor you need to consider when selecting a day moisturizing cream is your skin type. If you are working with a qualified, board certified dermatologist, they will be able to successfully guide you to the right day cream that will keep your skin healthy and luminous while protecting it every day.
