Best Facial Moisturizers

Charlize Theron is said to have the most perfect skin.Reaching middle age can really be scary, especially for women. Nothing degrades a woman’s self-esteem and value than wrinkles and dry skin. Whereas men are said to gain dignity and authority with age, the effect on women is the opposite. At 38, my regimen now includes daily anti-aging products I use all over my body. Dermatologists recommend that women start taking care of their skin as early as 25 years old. But of course, arrogance comes with youth and most never bother to take care of their skin till they notice how it starts to deteriorate. Let me just provide you with helpful hints.

The first signs of age usually show on the face. It is important to keep it moisturized to keep wrinkles away. We all have different skin types and different moisturizers have different effects on different women. I already tried different brands . . . and I still want to try others to find a perfect match. Olay Total Effects – gentle works fine on my face. The one for normal skin makes my skin break out. I would get pimples on my nose and forehead. What I really want to try is Strivectin SD and La Mer. The price is a bit steep but I promise to try them within the year to find out if they are really worth the price. A new product that women are talking about these days is also Amatokin. Like La Mer, it is very expensive. Some women say that these expensive brands are all hype. Better alternatives mentioned by a lot of women are L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream, Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer, Sonya Dakar Hydrasoft Lotion, Aveeno Positively Smooth Facial Moisturizer, and Clarins Hydra-Plus Moisture.

Remember that when you look for a facial moisturizer, it is important to find one that has a sunscreen of at least an SPF 15 for day creams. Otherwise, you need to put a sunblock over it before you go out. Whatever commercial brands claim, keep in mind that wrinkles can never be reversed. Some can make it less apparent, but it will still be there. What you have to do is to keep wrinkles from getting worse or if you don’t have them yet, keep them away. That is the main objective of moisturizers and sunscreens. Also, don’t forget to use a good cleanser to wash your face at night and in the morning before you put them on. I use Cetaphil because it is mild and keeps my face from becoming too dry. If you have oily skin and are prone to acne, a kojic soap or any soap that has glycolic acid/alpha hydroxy acids will be the best cleanser before applying your moisturizer and sunscreen. With the right regimen and a lot of patience, flawless skin can be possible.

This will be the first part of my skin care series. I will post reviews on body lotion, eye creams, whitening products, and dermatological treatments. Watch out for my other posts soon.

    I’m a huge products-user and normally use Mac (cosmetics) and Chanel. I’m very picky and particular about what I use on my face. It has to be outstanding, or I just won’t use it. I have tubs of unused cosmetics and creams all which I have not liked for one reason or another.

    I received this “Made from Earth” VITAMIN ENHANCED MOISTURIZER as a gift. I was expecting another product that I would be adding to my ‘don’t like’ pile. Boy was I wrong! From the second I opened the jar with the beautiful lid — it made that wonderful ‘swisshhhing’ sound when it opened.

    When I put the cream on my face I was expecting it to be greasy and it wasn’t at all! There is an amazing skin-tightening and smoothing effect this cream has. As soon as I put it on, it sank in my skin, and my skin felt dewy and like a babies skin. I think the combination of anti-oxidants & skin firming really are a miracle in a bottle.

    My husband told me the next day my skin looked incredible. When I looked at my reflection in the mirror close-up, it has a look now of smooth-glass. My big pores are diminished and it looks almost airbrushed.

    I LOVE THIS CREAM! I will buy the Made from Earth Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer forever! I’m 34 and plan on using this to keep the wrinkles and lines at bay.
