Fix These 7 Moisturizing Mistakes

You're overloading on products.

You might use a cleanser in the morning, then use a toner, then apply a moisturizing lotion with SPF, followed by a liquid foundation with SPF and anti-aging benefits. Chances are, you don't need all of those products. Find multi-tasking products that moisturize as well as provide anti-aging or anti-acne effects that your skin needs, suggests Dr. Hooper. If you wear makeup, you might want to experiment with BB creams (beauty or blemish creams), which can hydrate skin, even out skin tones, treat the skin with anti-aging ingredients or antioxidants or other anti-aging ingredients, and provide broad-spectrum SPF.
