If you are concerned with dry skin, brown spots or wrinkles, you can do something about it. There are cremes and products to cover brown spots, camouflage wrinkles and moisturize your skin. Look for these ingredients when you go to your department store or drug store to buy skin care products and makeup. One of the best things you can do for your skin is to use sunscreen with a high number. If you do, you might avoid sun spots and sun damage altogether.
With all the skin products out there, you will be able to find the best products for your skin type. They will take years off your face in minutes. Of course the best age fighter is still sunscreen. So whatever products you use, be sure it has sunscreen. Dryness is what many women have and it’s one of the easiest problems to remedy. You should look for humectants in cremes and foundations to hold in the moisture. Super humectants are hyaluronic acid and glycerin.
They can hold up to a thousand times their weight in water. Avoid any product that contains salicylic acid because it takes out the skins natural moisture. Also if the word matte is on the packaging, don’t buy it. Matte only highlights the dryness of your skin. Skip powder foundations and especially formulated powder. It will emphasize lines and wrinkles. If you have really dry spots, apply eye gel. It gives a little added moisture.
Use good old Chapstick rather than fancy lip primers. It will leave a smooth surface and prevent your lipstick from caking. If you must use lip liner use a clear one. Colored liner will cling to dry skin in an unattractive way. Use an eye cream if your eye lids are dry. Retinol may help with wrinkles. The emphasis is on may. With all the boasts product companies make, it still hasn’t been proven. If you do use Retinol, remember it’s sun sensitive so use a good sunblock. Retinol can also be irritating, if you see dry patches or redness stop using it or use it less often.
The most promising wrinkle fighters are peptites. These products with antioxidants and peptites act like garbage collectors by absorbing toxins that otherwise damage skin cells. Almay makes a concealer blend of peptites and antioxidants. Antiaging products contain light reflection particles that create the illusion of light reflecting off lines and wrinkles. Dot it along your crows feet and frown lines. Don’t apply any other makeup over it. That will only bring out your wrinkles.
Age spots or large brown spots can be faded somewhat with soy. Products with Gogi berries can boost the skins natural radiance. For all over dullness use a luminous foundation with tiny reflective particles. Then use a concealer that matches your skin tone to put on your finger and pat over brown spots. Add a dot of lumination on the inside corner of your eyes to make them look larger and brighter. With just a touch of creamy rose color on your cheeks you’re done.
