Choosing the right light moisturizer means properly assessing one's skin needs. There are quite a few kinds of light moisturizer on the market, many of which are formulated to address different skin issues. There are some kinds that are specifically formulated to treat acne, while others are made with ingredients that help to fight aging. There are also light moisturizers that work to control oil. Depending on one's personal skin needs, the options will be narrowed down.

Once the options have been narrowed down, choosing a light moisturizer becomes an issue of price, personal preference, and ingredients. Some people insist on wearing light moisturizer that includes SPF in order to protect their skin from sun damage. So the options can be narrowed down according to which varieties of light moisturizer include SPF. Other people prefer to only use skin care products that are made with natural products or all organic products, which is another requirement that can narrow down the search. Finally, for some people, the scent of skin care products is especially important and they will only consider using products that have a pleasing scent.

For those who can purchase any kind of light moisturizer they like no matter the price, the options are nearly limitless. For others, setting a budget per bottle or per ounce is a good way to narrow down the options.
