I’m sure you already possess a separate sets of moisturizers for the summer and winter – if you don’t, vow to do so now! Our seasons are dramatically extreme our skin needs tailored care to avoid premature aging. As they say, prevention is better than cure so make sure you don’t compromise on this aspect of your beauty care.
The one moisturizer I am addicted to this season (summer) is Lancome’s Hydra Zen Neurocalm – soothing anti-stress moisturizing cream. I’m usually a Clinique fan when it comes to moisturization but since entered my mid-twenties I figured I had to up my game to keep the wrinkles away.
I was talked into buying this by a sales-girl at a duty free – she explained this is great for anti-aging purposes for women in my age group who do not need to get hooked onto the stronger stuff yet.
So why do I recommend this so strongly? It hasn’t irritated my skin or caused a breakout! My skin is pretty sensitive so I’m always cautious about spending too much on creams because it hurts the most when they cause a rash or breakout and I to end up using them on my feet -_-
It gets absorbed completely and almost feels like its’ not there – it makes a BIG difference in the softness of the skin. In the summer I also use this as a night-cream because its’ that light. Add SPF 15 to the mix and we have a multi-purpose investment 😛
A 50 ml bottle will cost you around 70 dollars – but it will last you around 2 seasons so why not invest girls? keep leftover safe in your fridge until next summer! You’ll have to order this online for the time-being but I’ll keep a lookout in the local market and keep you posted.
I also recommend you get Lancome’s softening hydrating toner to use with this. I apply it before the cream and it has not irritated my skin even once. Also it makes a VERY notable difference in the softness (as promised by the name ;)) . Its’ a steal for around 20 dollars so make sure you buy toner even if you can’t afford the cream!
Post Update – Girls, winter is in full throe and I am using the hydrating toner for healing and preventing annoying dry patches on my face. Its’ working its’ magic very well and I don’t have to use olive oil to heal them. Olive oil is great but its’ too thick and causes me breakouts if I use daily!
That’s it for now! Have a great day ladies, and remember to makeup well 😉
