My Must Have Skin Care Products

I live in the desert where the climate is very dry and I need skin care products that not only help keep fine lines, wrinkles and acne at bay, I also need products that will keep my skin moisturized. I have tried many high end and drugstore skin care products since moving to southern Nevada and I have finally found products that work for me and are now my must have skin care products. Listed below are the skin care products I use every morning and evening that provide my skin exactly what it needs:

*Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Power Clear Scrub I have been using this for years every morning. Great for cleaning my skin after my morning workouts.

 *Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Power Cream Wash I have been using this for a few years now and love it to cleanse my skin in the evening.

 *Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Lotion I have been using this for a year now. I had to find a replacement to the Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3 in 1 Hydrating Acne Treatment that I used for years and loved, but was discontinued. This isn’t as hydrating, but works just as well.

 *Alpha Skin Care Enhanced Revitalizing 12% Glycolic Acid Cream Formally known as Alpha Hydrox, available at Ulta. I used the 10% glycolic cream for years and loved it, but I noticed the cream wasn’t working as it once did, so I just starting using the 12% cream and it is taking care of reducing my fine lines and wrinkles and I love this product and will be repurchasing.

 *CeraVe Eye Repair Cream I started using this eye cream about 6 months ago and it has helped the fine lines around my eyes and I will be repurchasing this when I run out.

 *St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer ($5.49. I have been using this morning and evening for over a year now and I love it. I am finishing up my second jar and will repurchase again when I run out.

*Perfectly Pure Natural Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick I started using this years ago it was only 99 cents. I use this around my eyes morning and evening and I can’t be without this product!

 *Trader Joe’s Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion SPF 15 ($3.99. I have been using this every morning for years. Its fragrance free, for all skin types, has vitamins A, C & E and has broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

*Trader Joe’s 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil I have been using this for about 2 years now and is a great acne spot treatment.

 *Physicians Formula Argan Oil I discovered this about a year ago and I can’t be without it! I use 6-7 drops every morning and evening and this has helped reduce my fine lines and wrinkles and keeps my skin moisturized.

 *Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask ($4.99. I discovered this polishing mask a few months ago and I like how this makes my skin feel. This is a 2 in 1 product. It’s a purifying mask that you leave on cleansed skin for about 7 minutes then black sugar helps exfoliate your skin and leaves your skin smooth clean and hydrated.

 *Collagen Essence Fresh Aloe & Cucumber Facial Tissue Mask This contains 2 sheet masks, Fresh Aloe and Cucumber. Both masks are drenched with product and you leave on for 15-20 minutes on cleansed skin. My skin feels moisturized and looks brighter and I have repurchased this numerous times because it works for my skin.

 *Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter This is a great makeup remover and removes everything including eye makeup and leave my skin soft.

 *Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water ($8.99. I purchased this as soon as I saw it. I use this to remove any traces of makeup after removing my makeup with the cleansing butter. It doesn’t dry out my skin and I would repurchase this again.

*Carmex I have been using this on my lips for years and continue to use this. Keeps my lips hydrated all day and night.

 *Aquaphor Lip Repair I started using this over the Carmex every night and the two together keep my lips moisturized at night and I wake up to soft lips every morning.

As you can see you do not need to spend a fortune to take care of your skin and everything I listed above is affordable. I do like trying new skin care products, but these are the products that I repurchase over and over and have become my must have products that I just can’t live without! I hope you enjoyed reading about my must have skin care products and until next time, stay happy, healthy and beautiful!
