“During the day you protect. At night you repair. I share this advice with all my patients. Finding a daily moisturizer that not only protects skin from UV radiation but also strengthens the skin barrier while preventing water loss and dehydration can be challenging. CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 50 contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to strengthen the skin barrier, lock in moisture and reduce inflammation. With Invisible Zinc Technology and a lightweight formula, this product dries clear without any ashy residue and is suitable for any skin type.”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is a daytime moisturizer that promotes hydrated, protected, and healthy-looking skin. This multitasking formula works as both a facial moisturizer and a sunscreen—it hydrates and nourishes your skin throughout the day and helps protect your skin from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays (when used as directed with other sun protection measures). Our AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion also features CeraVe’s three essential ceramides and is formulated to help maintain your skin’s protective barrier.


    Using this facial moisturizer with sunscreen every day can help you achieve skin that feels smooth, nourished, soothed, and hydrated. When used with other sun protection measures, it can also help protect your skin from sun damage, which may lead to visible signs of skin aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Plus, using this hydrating facial lotion allows you to simplify your skincare routine by combining two essential steps—moisturizing and sun protection—into one.*


    *For sunscreen protection, this product must be reapplied at least every two hours.

  • CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is a daytime moisturizer formula with broad-spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. This lightweight, fragrance-free moisturizer should be applied every morning after cleansing as the final step in your daytime skincare routine. (For sunscreen protection, remember to reapply this product at least every two hours.) The formula layers well under makeup, without pilling, and can be used by all skin tones and skin types—including sensitive skin. If you wear makeup, apply it after CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50, once the product is fully absorbed.
  • Our AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion contains both mineral and chemical sun filters to help reflect and absorb the sun’s harmful rays. This hybrid sunscreen formula features zinc oxide, a mineral-derived sunscreen ingredient that provides broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Combining both types of sunscreen ingredients allows for the best of both worlds—all the benefits of mineral sunscreen coupled with the cosmetic elegance of chemical sunscreen.
  • Everyone! Our AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 50 is a convenient everyday sunscreen option. This facial moisturizer delivers both hydration and sun protection and is easy to reapply as needed throughout the day.* The formula is non-greasy, fragrance-free, won’t clog your pores, and layers well under makeup. It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and blends easily into all skin tones with no white residue.

     

    *For sunscreen protection, this product must be reapplied at least every two hours.

  • CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion should be applied liberally on your entire face and neck 15 minutes before heading outdoors. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), this is roughly the amount of time it takes for your skin to fully absorb the sunscreen ingredients and begin providing protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays.3 When using our AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion for sunscreen protection, remember to reapply it at least every two hours in order to maintain adequate protection.
  • The main difference between CeraVe’s AM Facial Moisturizing Lotions is that one formula contains SPF 30 sunscreen while the other contains SPF 50 sunscreen. Both of our hydrating AM moisturizers make excellent additions to any daytime skincare routine for healthy-looking skin. They feature three essential ceramides and are formulated to help maintain and restore your skin’s protective barrier. Both formulas are fragrance-free, non-greasy, and fast-absorbing, with effective ingredients like hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. The formulas also include broad-spectrum sunscreen, which helps protect against both UVA and UVB rays.


    Choosing which of our AM Facial Moisturizing Lotions to include in your everyday routine is a matter of personal preference. If you’re not sure which one is right for you, we suggest consulting a board-certified dermatologist for individualized advice.

  • The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends reapplying sunscreen products at least every two hours for maximum protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays.3 Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires all sunscreen labels to include these instructions.4 Sunscreen products should also be reapplied immediately after swimming or sweating. When using this (or any) product with sunscreen, always read the product packaging carefully and apply (or reapply) per the instructions.

     

    In addition to reapplying sunscreen, the AAD and FDA both recommend following additional sun protection measures when outdoors, such as wearing protective clothing (like wide-brim hats and sunglasses) and seeking shade during peak hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.).4,5

  • The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) states that, as long as your sunscreen includes an SPF value of 30 (or higher) and broad-spectrum UV protection, it can be considered an effective sun protection option.2 SPF 50 reflects/absorbs approximately 98% of UV rays, while SPF 30 reflects/absorbs approximately 97% of the sun’s rays, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.1 If you’ll be swimming or sweating, the AAD also recommends using a water-resistant sunscreen with at least SPF 30.2 For any specific questions about choosing between SPF 50 vs. 30, consult with a board-certified dermatologist for personalized advice.
  • The FDA and the Skin Cancer Foundation recommend reapplying all sunscreen products every two hours in order to maintain the same level of UV protection.1,4 So, whether your sunscreen features SPF 30 or SPF 50, the same recommendation applies. The FDA and the Skin Cancer Foundation also recommend reapplying all sunscreen formulas immediately after swimming, sweating, or spending extended periods of time outdoors.1,4
