If you do nothing else for you skin, you should, at the minimum, be applying moisturizer twice daily. Moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated and protects it against natural and environmental toxins.
But finding the perfect moisturizer for your skin can be quite a challenge. I've tried many, many brands, types, kinds of moisturizers in my day. Some I have loved, and others have gone straight into the trash or I've given them to one of my sisters.
My opinion of a moisturizer is cut and dried. I either love it or I hate it. There is no gray area.
I was offered a chance to try Beautify DermaSmooth Moisturizing Creme as part of my participation on Spa Week's Hot Mom Squad. Beautify, an an exclusive sponsor of Spa Week, wants women to look and feel their best.
I was instructed to use Beautify in small amounts as it is concentrated. I decided to use it in the mornings as part of my pre-make up moisturizing routine and at night after cleansing. Upon opening the jar, I was surprised by the orange color of the moisturizer. I was expecting a light colored moisturizer since so many are white. It has a nice light, citrusy scent that lingers on your skin.
Once applied, my skin felt very soft. Beautify DermaSmooth creme seeped into my skin immediately. Although it did leave behind a slight sticky feeling, Beautify was very effective at moisturizing my problem areas such as my forehead and temple areas. Once I applied my makeup, the sticky feeling was gone. The blend of clinically-proven active ingredients combined with anti-oxidants makes Beautify the perfect moisturizer to help combat anti-aging.
As a woman over 40, I prefer a moisturizer that has anti-aging capabilities. Beautify contains 2 of the best peptides for growing collagen and smoothing wrinkles. Therefore, it reduces the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As a greenie, I loved that Beautify contains only natural ingredients. Studies show that skin responds better to natural ingredients than to synthetic ones. So why are so many skin care companies still using synthetic ingredients and expecting favorable results? Beautify contains no parabens or carcinogens.
In addition to various moisturizers, Beautify also makes cleansers, toners, and masks for all skin types. To view the entire product line and for more information about Beautify or to order products, visit the Web site. The Beautify DermaSmooth Moisturizer Creme retails for $170.00 for a 30ML jar.
