When your skin feels sensitive to the touch and dry as dust, the last place you want to be in is in the drug store searching for a product you hope will soothe and moisturize your skin.
I’ve been there, I know what it’s like to waste energy on products that are too runny, or too thick and barley hydrate the surface.
After spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars, I have found 4 products that properly moisturize, heal and rejuvenate the skin. If you suffer from dry patches and sensitive skin, you may to check these out.
1. B22 Night Gel
Time Activated Miracle Moisturizer
I’m obsessed with anti-aging, and though there are worse things in life, I fear the possibility of my skin not aging gracefully. I trust B22 Night Gel with my night routine, every night. It’s smooth as satin as it disappears into my skin. A sense of calm floods my face as this moisturizer reaches deeper levels of my skin. I’m always amazed at how soft, vibrant and dewy my skin feels after using B22 Night Gel. A plus about this gel is that a little goes a long way. $120 for 70 ml is a steal.
Active Ingredients: B22 Active – proprietary time activated ingredient designed to release rich oxygen release into the skin at precisely the perfect moment.
The Method: Nourish, 50ml ($125)
When you have skin that goes from dry to oil from minute to the next, it can be extremely hard finding a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates without feeling greasy. The Lancer Nourish Method gets the job done. However, to get the full benefits of Dr. Lancer’s anti-aging method, should also consider getting the cleanser and polish.
Key Ingredients: Nasturtium Flower Extract, Hexapeptide 48, Rare Grape Polyphenol. This combination of ingredients gives the skin a healthy glow, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and help to protect the skin against environmental stress.
Magnolia, Jasmine and Lily Healing Emulsion, 50ml ($120)
I have dealt with a little rosacea on my cheeks, breakouts on my neck and it is not fun. Chantecaille Healing Emulsion seems to do the best job of soothing the irritation and inflammation. After a few days of using Chantecaille Healing Emulsion, the redness goes away, and I can get back into my routine. This lightweight cream glides right on to the skin, keeping it soft and moist. It’s not greasy nor leaves skin oily so it’s perfect for summer nights. The bottle has pump action, which is a feature that I love. Two pumps and I’m good to go.
Active Ingredients: Cellusoothe TCM — Japanese Honeysuckle, Siberian Cocklebur Fruit and Purple Nutsedge that soothes and protects your skin.
4. La Mer
The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, 30ml ($155)
I only use this when irritation is so severe that nothing else will do. The cooling sensation I get from this cream does the trick. It hydrates, soothes and cools the skin at the same time. Though $155 for 30 ml seems steep, you only need a tiny amount.
Active Ingredient: Signature Miracle Broth™ Sea-sourced renewing energies are added to replenish moisture.
