Facial creams and treatments

November 6, 2007 8:23am CST
I am using day and night cream for my face, and a make-up cleansing foam. I also have a facial mask I use whenever I remember! Hehe..I don't buy expencive brand creams or cosmetics because I don't believe that they are the only ones that help our skin to look and feel good. Do you usually prefer brands? What products do you use?

I use various brands for my face. BeautiControl green tea mask, skinlogics facial scrub, avon hydrating night moisturizer, nivea anti shadow eye cream, nivea aqua day moisturizer and nivea cleanser. I have good skin which can adapt to any brand of facial stuff. No allergies. So I am constantly trying out various brands. Not epensive ones but affordabla ones.

im very much into facial creams and treatments.i usually buy one night/day cream, treatment even before one bottle runs out and before i know it i already have 5 different night creams! i have already tried several things that delivers and quite a lot disappoints. before buying stuffs, i usually check on user reviews on makeupalley or some women forum just to make sure that im not wasting my money on some expensive, overhyped, skincare stuffs again! anyway, my favorites so far are Neostrata Gel plus and Japanese brand HABA. im really happy with these two and gonna stick to it a litte bit longer. :)

I use a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. I also use a facial scrub twice weekly and a facial mask once in a week. Yep, I do believe in good brands for skincare, you're putting them on your face etc after all..so must ensure that the product is good. You dont want to put some crappy stuff on your face now, do you?

If you use facial cream frequently you must use branded and healthy one. Know something about it:- Based on the latest patented peptide technology, this powerful, yet lightweight concentrate featuring the Peptide-D58 complex delivers unparalleled skin firming and antioxidant protection, while combating fine lines. When skin is cut, collagen fibers within the dermis break. Part of the injured collagen fiber is composed of a chain of specialized amino acid peptides that send a chemical message to the collagen producing cells (fibroblasts), which makes them return to the area, produce collagen and repair the wound. This process is called chemotaxis. Wrinkle Revenge Facial Cream is composed of multiple (not just one) of the newest generation powerful and effective amino acid peptides plus antioxidants and agents that help restore the fragile ceramide barrier. Together they work synergistically, creating a more effective end result. The amino acid peptides contained in Wrinkle Revenge reflect the very end fragments that sends out the distress signal to fibroblasts, chemically signaling skin to become firmer. As we age, collagen construction is lost. After age 40, 1% of skin´s collagen is lost each year. At 20, you maintain skin firmness, keeping fibroblasts in place and producing lots of skin firming collagen. By age 45, fibroblasts that are still present simply do not work as well as they used to. Wrinkle Revenge™ employs a sophisticated complex of ingredients to visibly improve skin firmness while diminishing fine lines:• Peptide-D58 complex is an amino acid peptide complex that stimulates collagen synthesis, a notable skin reconstructor. • Urea is a potent dermatologist recommended humectant. • Glucosamine helps increase collagen synthesis. • Sandalwood helps promote cellular turnover & stimulates fibroblast growth. • Antioxidant Complex including Grape Seed, Pomegranate, White Tea and other agents help to fight skin damaging free radicals to delay visible aging and improve skin radiance. • Linoleic Acid is an essential fatty acid that prevents dryness and rough skin. • Algae normalizes skin´s moisture content and provides suppleness. • Yeast Extract helps reduce visible signs of aging. • Corktree Bark Extract is a skin soothing anti-inflammatory ingredient. • Dermatologist Tested & Approved • Non Comedogenic • Non Irritating • Allergy Tested • Fragrance Free • Dye Free • No Animal Testing Apply to face twice a day. Allow 6-8 weeks for best results. Apply a broad spectrum SPF 30 during the daytime. Avoid contact with eyes. visit this site for more information:- http://www.dermadoctor.com/

Oil of Olay - Age Regenerist. That stuff is amazing. I had not exactly dark circles under eyes, but just not to smooth and all, and I used that for 2 weeks and a 100% change in my face complextion. No dark circles, and the freckles -not major, but there and annoying to try to get an even tone was hard. But Olay Age Regenerist is just amazing. You can actually see the change. and it only took 2 weeks. WOn't find me using anything else!

i would make a lot of them at home by myself, specialy facial masks and also hair cures and masks. It is not only cheaper that way, but also you know what you are putting in it and it is fresh and have no chemicals. you are right those brands rpoduct cost a lot of money and also we don't know what they really consist. Also not only things from outside help our skin, but also how we are eating and drinking enough water.
