A lot of people-husbands, for example-doubt the efficacy of face creams, but they can be a truly powerful ally in the fight against aging. Applied topically, moisturizers help fortify and renew the skin with enriching nutrients that seal in moisture while protecting against harsh toxins.

Look for moisturizers that are rich in active ingredients such as peptides, since the amino acids can help to encourage natural metabolic skin functions and a healthy complexion. Likewise, moisturizers generous in growth factors may facilitate cellular reproduction, reinforcing the skin’s suppleness.

You’ll want to search for creams and lotions with active ingredients that prevent free-radical damage, like DMAE, alpha lipoic acid and vitamin C ester. And of course, some SPF never hurts. But remember, the key to their success is consistent use.
