Just being a 75 year old woman s a problem (!) for my skin but being a many decades long outside runner in all weather conditions is a real killer.
Not interested in botox, etc. but I would like to not look like a dried up prune.
Right now I'm using Edna daytime moisturizer but it is so greasy appearing even a sparing amount.

I tried Intelligent Nutrients serum but it, also, leaves a weird sheen on my face like a film.
Hmmm...any ideas?
Thanks very much.

I started using Wrinkle Cream with Pycnogenol base which I purchased from Swansons for years. Then I started to make my own as I love to be a chemist and make my own brews. Great antioxidant and I take powerful antioxidants internally as well. I spent years in the sun and my face is about wrinkle free.

I use "everyone" brand. eoproducts.com. It's a 3 in 1 type lotion, hands, face, body, made with plant extracts and essential oils. I buy a big 32 ounce container of it and it lasts a very long time. It sinks in and does not feel greasy. It's nice and lightweight and it moisturizes well. You can find it at Natural Grocers, Sprouts, Whole Foods, some grocery stores and online. It costs around $10-$15 for that size depending on the store. I bought mine on sale for $8 at Natural Grocers. My favorite scent is coconut and lemon.

Try Bag Balm. Seriously. It's from Vermont, where farmers discovered that lanolin (a natural product from sheep) would heal their cracked hands in winter, as well as heal the raw and sore cow udders all winter long. They still use it for that, but everybody else used it as a moisturizer. Nowadays it's medicated, but still made of lanolin. It's not greasy at all. We all use it up here in Maine.

Comes in a big tin if you want a lot of it. Nothing fancy at all!

Nivea Original lotion, in the blue bottles. Not greasy or oily, makes skin pliable and smooth, and a little goes a long way. Regular supermarkets sell it.

I’ve been active outdoors every day for almost my entire life. CO climate is rough on skin and hair, so in winter I apply Nivea every other evening, immediately after showering. In summer, I get so tired of smearing sunblock on arms and legs that I don’t use the Nivea. Face and neck still get sunblock 365 days/year!
