Stress, pollution, hormones, lack of sleep and bad habits can all have a negative impact on your skin. Women are prone to breakouts of acne, unsightly wrinkles and even bouts of rosacea which can all make you feel rotten and sap your confidence when you want to look your best. Luckily, there are many products on the health and beauty scene that are designed to improve the quality of your skin by clearing up problem patches and reducing oiliness and wrinkles. The result is a soft, supple epidermis that looks flawless.
Here are some of the best face creams and moisturisers on the market.
Origins GinZing Moisturizer
This energy-boosting facial cream has a heavenly scent of chocolate orange which smells good enough to eat. But this is not its main benefit! The cream is packed full of skin-boosters like coffee bean and Panax ginseng which helps to improve hydration levels within the skin layers, which keeps the skin looking plump and luscious. Apply a layer to tired morning skin and receive an instant zing.
Clarins Multi-Active Youth Recovery Night Cream
This revitalising night cream uses golden poppy extract as its secret ingredient. By rubbing this cream on before you go to bed, your fine lines will be visibly improved by using this gem of a product on a regular basis. It’s perfect for those with a normal to combination skin type.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo and Anti-Blemish Cream
If you struggle with breakouts and blemishes, then this anti-blemish cream is the ideal solution to rescue your skin. The gel-cream formula works to address oily prone skin and is excellent at unclogging blocked pores which would otherwise result in pimples. It’s also great at reducing shine, meaning you’ll have to spend less time constantly powdering.
Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturising Cream
If you’re in need of some emergency hydration for your skin, then this extra repair moisturising cream is like a nourishing drink for your face. This is more expensive than your usual high street face cream, but it does provide excellent results. It is absolutely stocked full of essential fatty acids (EFAs) that produce that moisturising effect, but with a lightweight gentle feel. Shea butter prevents the outer layer of the epidermis against moisture loss, while glycerin and sodium hyalorunite plump out those fine lines and prevent them turning into deeper wrinkles.
Aesop Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream
Another one with a scrumptious scent, this facial hydrating cream is infused with energy-boosting citrus oil. It is an excellent choice for normal or combination skin as its ingredients are blended together to produce an effect which cools, tones and balances the skin out. This is best used as part of your morning skin routine to provide a natural glow that lasts all day.
Sisley Moisturiser with Cucumber Jar
As a natural ingredient, cucumber contains amino acids and minerals which have long been associated with luscious skin. Combined in this silky and non-greasy moisturiser by Sisley, this concoction has incredibly hydrating effects. It is more expensive than other face creams, but try it once and you’ll be hooked.
