With skin that's apt to shine, the only moisturizer you need is your sunscreen; just make sure it's oil-free with an SPF of 30.
Dry patches are appearing, so you'll need to apply a proper moisturizer after cleansing, explains Dr. Downie. Still, the product should be oil-free; those with glycolic acid will increase skin's smoothness. Add vitamins A and E to the mix for antiaging properties and softness.
Unless you have acne, use moisturizer twice a day: oil-free in the morning, and a heavier, oil-based product at night—one with copper will improve skin's texture. If you're pre-menopausal, use a product with soy to soothe inflamed skin.
