Some Of My Favorite Face Moisturizers Are......

Skin types vary, and so must your moisturizer. Despite our differences, nearly all skin types can benefit from the right type of face moisturizer.

Dry skin types can certainly attest to this. Without a daily dose of hydration your skin would be flaky, itchy and tight. Luckily, this list of the best moisturizers includes products that deliver intense hydration that lasts all day without causing breakouts or greasiness.

Oily skin types might use moisturizer less often, but you actually need it just as much. Because people with oily or acne-prone skin often apply drying products, your skin may start to produce more oil to balance it out (yikes). But using a light moisturizer (especially one with oil-control properties) can help keep skin in balance and cause it to produce less oil over time. Thankfully, this list also includes light moisturizers that are perfect for oily skin -- ones that don't cause breakouts or extra shine, but do offer some hydration.

If you have sensitive skin, you know that a good moisturizer can calm redness or flare-ups from skin issues like eczema. Most sensitive skin will benefit from a basic moisturizer without a lot of added chemicals or preservatives, and there are plenty of products on this list that fit the bill.

I have compiled a few of the face Moisturizers that I have tried over the years. Staring with the most recent one: 

  • Abeille Royale Day Cream by Guerlain Paris 

The new Abeille Royale Rich Day Cream transforms the skin’s appearance both instantly and over time. Day after day, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed, skin texture is refined, the skin firmer and its radiance boosted. With a balm-like texture, this cream is enriched with beeswax and brings instant comfort and nourishment.

70% of the signs of ageing are due to mechanical stress and UV rays. These cause micro-tears within the dermis and epidermis which are responsible for wrinkles and loss of firmness.

The Abeille Royale Repairing Concentrate, formulated with pure honey from the Black Bees on the Island of Ouessant and exclusive Guerlain Royal Jelly, stimulates the skin’s self-repair* process at every key level.
Combined with low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, it helps revitalize the surface of the skin for instant long-lasting improvements on its appearance.

The ladies Vanity First Perfumes & Cosmetics Duty Free (located on St.Rose Arcade , Philipsburg, St.Maarten) will be more than happy to provide you with more information on the effectiveness of this day cream...For now I can tell you it is soft like Butter On your skin!

Most Skin Care experts would advice for you not to mix lines within your cleansing regime. This is why it is important to have a proper skin care consultation to determine your choice of brand based on your skin type, age, skin condition etc. The brand is not as relevant as knowing the benefits that each product can do for the enhancement, maintenance and rejuvenation of your skin. An important element is for you to remember choosing a moisturizer that has an SPF built in or to add sunblock to your cleansing / protection & daily routine.
