Read the ingredients
Regardless of skin type, you can’t just blindly pick a moisturizer and assume it’s going to work. What makes Bulldog a no-brainer is its dedication to healthy ingredients, rather than those that strip away your skin’s layers and natural vitamins. You see, moisturizer should leave your skin feeling hydrated, and certain ingredients are known to do that better than others.
Green tea is found in several Bulldog products, like the Original Moisturizer, for good reason. “It’s known to contain many antioxidant benefits that fight stressors that come out when the skin experiences inflammation, redness, and sun damage,” Ferreri says. “It is used to combat our body’s negative reaction to things around us like UV rays, air pollution, and cigarette smoke.” So unless you want to sip enough tea that you’re running to the restroom every five minutes (which, hey, hydrating is highly encouraged), just reach for the Bulldog.
But that’s not all you should look for, according to Ferreri. “Some ingredients are helpful no matter what skin type you have,” she says. In addition to green tea, be on the lookout for products that contain Vitamin E (which helps to hydrate and prevent inflammation caused by acne or shaving), aloe vera (to protect against the sun’s harmful rays and soothe irritated skin), and of course, SPF.
