The Best Daily Moisturizer You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

Courtesy of

I’m generally a fan of cutting costs in your skincare routine when possible. This typically means splurging on certain “must-have” items, like high-quality serums and sunscreens, and heading to the drugstore for more budget-friendly cleansers and moisturizers. (If currently trying to economize, you can check out our previous blog on this: Skincare Products That Are Actually Worth the Splurge). However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some indisputable benefits to splurging on skincare if you are able, and one of our most recommended products in this category is SkinMedica’s TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream for your daily moisturizer ($70, available in our office).


Why do I recommend this specific splurge?

TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream is a moisturizer that has no drugstore “dupe.” This is because it contains SkinMedica’s proprietary “tissue nutrient serum” (TNS). TNS is made from human growth factor and supports skin’s natural rejuvenation process, improving the overall appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, tone, and texture. TNS is also one of the most clinically-effective ingredients on the market and can only be purchased at medispas or doctor’s offices. Additionally, this moisturizer contains antioxidants, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, peptides, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B5.

Who should use this moisturizer?

TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream is one of the best daily moisturizers for mature, dry, or weather-damaged skin (aka sun, wind, or after a trip to the desert). Its healing and regenerative properties also make it a top choice for sensitive skin, or for anyone struggling with broken capillaries, redness, or inflammation. It can also be extremely calming for those with acne. (Yes, it’s important to moisturize acne-prone skin too!)

We also highly recommend using this moisturizer after chemical peels and microneedling to maximize the benefits of your treatments.

Call, message, or visit us in person to pick up a bottle of TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream of your very own.
