What the Best Moisturizers do for Your Skin

A moisturizer is defined as a mix of chemical or natural agents designed to make skin softer and more flexible by increasing its hydration. The sky is the limit when it comes to how much money you can spend on this one beauty item alone! But price doesn’t necessarily reflect results, and picking the perfect moisturizer is the ultimate goal. Regular moisturizing should begin in your teens or when you start to notice the skin becoming dry.

Moisturizer keeps water locked in the skin’s cells by helping to reinforce the thin, oily layer on the surface of the skin. Applying moisturizer is also a good opportunity to massage the skin, which helps to stimulate blood circulation and increase muscle tone. The eye area and neck should be hydrated, as well. Face moisturizers typically work as well as neck creams do. But it’s almost inevitable – at some point, more mature skin on the neck area may become saggy. Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Neck Cream, is the ultimate firming neck treatment that enhances skin's youthful appearance for women over age 40. It helps firm and smooth away lines and wrinkles as it immediately "lifts." There are also many top eye creams that should be considered for the delicate eye area.

The manufacturers of eye creams are in a competitive market and the variations on the product can be baffling to consumers as companies struggle to find a point of difference to give you “bright eyes.” Identifying your eye issues: puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, and dryness is easy. Finding the right cream for the eyes can take some time. A favorite is La Prairie Cellular Radiance Eye Cream, a luxurious treatment that instantly brightens and firms your eyes.

The bottom line is that while complex ingredients can make a difference, all your skin really wants is to feel soft, comfortable and well hydrated.

Comments about Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, 50ml/1.7oz:
For the past 10 years plus, his is THE PERFECT everyday creme I put on after cleansing & toning & straight away natural, botanical nourishment! I can put on my foundation immediately on top & it blends smoothly & sets all pigments with moisture intact. I never have to touch up my makeup - no matter how much I sweat or go from air conditioning to outdoor winds! Even if I vary my foundation brand or product from Winter to Summer months, this creme ALWAYS goes on first & stops me from losing moisture from my skin, but doesn't feed acne or spots either & tends to balance & protect better than any other creme that I have ever tried! In fact it doesn't interfere with other cremes or make up either that I layer (eye creme, sunscreen etc) ... & my friends with very different skin types & different ages have given me the same feedback ! Friends in professional model or acting jobs swear by this product, and first put me into it so many years ago when I was in first in ShowBiz on the other side of the camera !

This is a favourite for delicate and sensitive skin in the harsh Australian sun!

Comments about Lancome Primordiale Optimum Visibly Smoothing Moisturiser SPF 15, 50ml/1.7oz in Jar - Normal to Dry Skin:
I wish Lancome still continued to make this product and I look to buy as many of this stock as I can! Now trying the Genifique range as also gel and light and absorbs immediately. My mother was initially concerned about the alleged nanoparticle technology in some Lancome products with sunscreen, however we have both found that the research is inconclusive at best, and that protection against the UV rays that cause skin cancer may outweigh the risks of the delivery system of the skin care product!

Comments about Dorothy Gray Satura Moisture Cream Basic Formula, 226g/8oz:
I am 62 and have used this product for 35 years. Everyone says that I have the skin of a 40 year old woman and I know it is because of Satura. There are many complaints on the Internet that the formula for this cream has changed since Dorothy Gray is no longer running the business. I suspect that this might be true because I have had great difficulty finding it and have received inconsistent quality. Several jars could not be used because the cream was runny, discolored, and had a foul odor. So far, I have not had any problems with the Satura from Beauty Endurance and I will be ordering directly from them in the future. I hope quality will remain excellent!

Comments about Christian Dior Hydra-Star Moisture Emulsion Normal and Combination Skin, 3ml/0.10oz (Travel Size):
Now this particular moisturizer did wonders for my skin. It's from older Dior line ( their newer moisturizers don't work for me at all) and I've been using it for many years. It was a perfect match for my type of skin ( although I always thought that my skin was rather dry/sensitive, not "normal/mixed," and it took care of all signs of aging for me for long time. In fact I barely remember using anything else, because nothing else felt as comfortable and moisturizing as this particular formula. ( Note; I found Hydra-Star formula for dry skin to be VERY different.) What I didn't like about this particular travel size product though, was unusual smell, however other properties remained the same. So I still gave it five stars, because it might be a perfect match for someone else as it was for me. Of course keep in mind though, that this line has been discontinued already for some time.

Not for normal to dry, but for normal/combo/oily skin as I discovered it on the package

Comments about Shiseido Pureness Moisturizing Emulsion, 50ml/1.7oz:
My first Shiseido product; it didn't feel particularly comfortable on my skin, but it didn't cause me any problems either. That's a good start, since many products drive my skin nuts to put it mildly two minutes after application. Unfortunately it's impossible to figure out here what type of skin Shiseido targets with this or that product; to me it might make the whole difference, ( as it was a case with Dior.)
