As tedious as it may be, moisturizer is the one step in our daily skin-care routines we're religious about. We may skip the serum and toner from time to time, but no matter how lazy we're feeling at the end of a long day, we'll always apply our go-to night creams.

, not taking the time to find the right moisturizer for your skin type can lead to issues. "If you overdo it, you could get some breakouts. If [it's] not thick enough, then chronically dry skin is the problem, and wrinkles can be accelerated," she says. Neither scenario sounds desirable to us.
