What Are the Hottest Beauty Products on the Market?
As far as beauty products go, you really shouldn't be leaving the house or even starting your day without first applying a really good skin moisturizer. A good, quality moisturizing cream serves as a great base for applying your makeup, protects your skin from environmental damage, and just makes your face feel fresh and soft all over. At DermBoutique, we've come up with our favorite moisturizers for you to try. For your convenience, we've thrown in a few home remedies, just in case you prefer the natural style!
What you should definitely add to favorites: these creams!
Below are the top contenders on our own personal "Add to Favorites" list, as compiled by our staff and contributors, that we think you should take a look at:
Visible Science Argan Oil (VSAO)
Visible Science Argan Oil is one of the most affordable moisturizers out there which contains natural ingredients, including 100% pure organic argan oil. The main ingredient is ethically sourced straight from the native villages of Morocco where it is still extracted by hand. The VSAO formula also contains a variety of botanical extracts designed to lock moisture into your skin, hair, and even your nails!
At-home alternative: olive oil. If you know how to cook, you probably have a bottle of this in your kitchen right now. Just rub a drop or two into your skin in the morning instead of a moisturizing cream. For oily skin, use sparingly; for dryer skin, plop a few extra drops into your hand.
If you're anything like us, you probably have a cacophony of blowdryers, curling irons, and hair straighteners in your bathroom. One of our staffers even confessed to still having an old crimper from the 80's! But all of that heat-styling takes a serious toll on your tresses. Thankfully, there's H2Thermal. This potent leave-in conditioner can be used every day. And it doesn't just condition your hair, making it shiny and super-soft without weighing it down. It also creates a protective shield the second it gets activated by heat-styling. What more could you ask for?
At-home alternative: gelatin packets or supplements. Try to find the sugar-free ones, if you decide to go for the packets. Granted, it won't instantly firm up your skin the way the plumping creams do, but it will help restore collagen over the long run.
Aquallure Antioxidant Rescue Cream is the solution to a problem we never knew we needed rescuing from! Not only will this moisturizer make a big difference in your skin from your very first use, but it has a delicious citrusy scent that isn't overpowering.
At-home alternative: none. You should really get yourself some of this.
Have you ever wanted an anti-wrinkle cream that contains powerful collagen-enhancing peptides and natural moisturizers? Well, look no further: Complexion MD is here. It attacks the most common skin problems with a one-two punch. First, it locks moisture deep down into your skin to keep it hydrated and glowing. Next, the strongest peptides you can get in an anti-wrinkle formula work to restore collagen and elastin deep inside your dermis. Over time, you will definitely see a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
At-home alternative: aloe vera or shea butter. They are both main ingredients in Complexion MD. However, they won't be as effective as the Complexion MD formula, since they lack the powerful peptides that are known to restore collagen and elastin in sagging skin.
