Moisturizing alone can improve the appearance of the skin. Temporarily plumps skin, making lines and wrinkles less visible. Moisturizers are lotions, creams, gels and serums made from water, oils, and other ingredients, such as proteins, waxes, glycerin, lactate, and urea. Nobody wants to look old ahead of time.
By adding a moisturizer to your daily routine, you can minimize wrinkles. Skin plumps up when you add moisturizer to it, giving your face a firmer look and showing fewer wrinkles. When skin dries, wrinkles become more evident and people tend to look older. Moisturizers are good for fighting aging, no matter what they contain, because hydrated skin is less prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles.
There is some overlap between these two products, as many anti-aging creams can also be moisturizers (and vice versa). As mentioned, the best anti-aging creams often contain the same barrier-restoring ingredients as moisturizers. In your thirties and forties, you should look for a moisturizer that contains anti-aging properties.
