I use old fashioned Ponds cold cream. I mix a small dab of the cream with a bit of Estee Lauder All Day foundation. Works great, doesn't look heavy or make-upy.

Try Serious Skin Care, it is available on HSN. They do entire lines for different skin types and conditions and it is very reasonably priced. I have been using it for years. Coconut oil for body lotion. I live in the desert so use a lot of it.

I have been using drunk elephant skincare this last month. It is pricey, but very good. Skip their marula oil and buy Acure organics wildcrafted marula oil.

Drunk elephant, their vitamin c serum is amazing: c firma. I love their lala cream. I really like their Peekee cleansing bar.

I am hating their sunscreen though.

They are supposed to be non toxic. Google drunk elephant blacklist, it is all the ingredients they leave out.

They also get 5 star reviews from beautypedia.com.

Also you need to eat healthy food, drink lots of water, get enough sleep.

I've had great success with Elizabeth Arden's Prevage line.

I'm a natural redhead with fair skin, but spent a lot of time in the sun in my younger days, sometimes burning quite badly. The damage from those years showed up in skin cancer (now treated) and a recent development of actinic keratosis - a pre-cancerous condition that appears as a crusty, raised lesion.

After using the Prevage products for about a month, I was surprised to notice that the lesion had disappeared. My skin overall looks so much better, and I am hooked. Pricey, but IMO worth it.

I use Murads Perfecting cream, both the day which SPF and night which is lighter. They both make my skin look good.
I worry about applying SPF so much, daily. It is winter and I don't worry about sun so much. I am trying find a day moisturizer without SPF.

I got a little sample bottle of that from Boots (Chemist). It is really good, but when I looked on the Boots website to see how much a full sized bottle was, I found out that it was 170! I'm not paying that much for it!

A lot of you have already mentioned coconut oil, and I have a night cream with coconut oil and olive oil in it, that works just as well as the Prevage. I find that if I use it before I go to bed, I look a bit better in the mornings!

I recently got turned on to Nivea Creme.. Great for winter skin, I'm already in love with it.

The "natural" trend isn't exactly cutting it for me anymore. Gimme what works. Tried & true..

I have been using this mask 1-2x a week and my skin looks awesome the next morning.
First Aid Overnight Brightening Mask - belif | Sephora

At this stage I am doing mostly preventative brightening because I no longer have lots o hyperpigmentation to worry about. I did a whole lot of things to get rid of the dark spots but the most effective was using the boots botanicals full line of brightening from face wash to serum to day cream. That got rid of all my spots and left me even. Now I just use the serum, a the Ole Hendricksen red tea face wash and an SPF 30+. And I mix in an oil or heavier cream to the sunscreen to give myself enough moisture.

Then I do a few masks a week: Fresh Rose Mask, the mask above and recently Vichy's moisturizing mask. These 3 masks are great and give me the glow I had in my teens and 20s!

we should all be googling JUNK in face creams and makeup as well as perfumes too... and think again about what were plastering on our bodies.. there are now good alternatives to all this stuff that should be better regulated, time will tell.. in the next ten to fifteen years every company will have to clean up their act with whats actually put into their cosmetics...if we the consumer stop buying the junk cosmetics then they will have to change or go bust.. there are alternatives so please have a look at non toxic creams, make up and perfumes..

#DitchTheJunk | Breast Cancer UK same with your shampoo... I havent tried any of these on the list but make sure there are no formaldehyde , parabens or sulphates in your shampoos too.
https://sulfatefreeshampoos.org/sulf...poo-list/#list, dont go with... Organic,, or for sensitive skin or Pure,read whats in it first.... and please dont go with if its expensive cream or makeup, it doesnt make a bit of difference.. if it has these parabens, sulphates , formadehyde etc in them. ditch them all ...PLEASE.. sorry for going on, but Im genuinly trying to help all to stop these companies selling us dangerous junk..
