In the cold winter months the weather can really take a toll on your skin. Now is the time to put on extra moisturizer, especially if, like me, you’re getting close to 40 and your skin is beginning to become dry.
I recently tried iO Beauty Moisture Concentrate and loved it! It’s pretty thick so I saved it for my nighttime skin routine. I put it on it right after I finished an at-home glycolic peel and needed a strong moisturizer to protect my skin from the effect of the chemical peel. The next morning my skin was incredibly soft and hydrated. This is definitely the type of moisturizer that works great for slightly drier or combination skin and if you put it on at night your skin will still feel moisturized in the morning.
I also tried the Sue Devitt SpaComplexion Tinted Moisturizer in Moorea (medium). It was very light and absorbed quickly. It made my skin luminous and gave me just enough color to look like I spent the day at the beach, but I still looked natural. The moisturizer stayed on for hours and my skin felt very soft with it. My mother, who is in her 60’s, also tried it and loved it! Her skin is usually very red and the tinted moisturizer got rid of the redness and evened out her skin tone. This moisturizer is SPF 15 and is infused with Microquatic Age-Defying Complex which improves skin firmness through anti-aging properties. It also continuously moisturizes, evens skin tone, enhances brilliance and provides a seamless finish.
