When it comes to skin, we must know that aging is natural and it’s going to happen. There are NO magical potions from Eden, that will reverse time. We must find what helps us best — and with that — something healthy for our skin. I have found three creams that help the most: Vit E, Vit A1 and Promedics.
First off, I have made my own mixture to form one cream, and I find it works amazingly (especially soon after you apply it).
Here goes, the recipe to my cream:
Vitamin A1 (Retinol)
Brazilian camu camu oil
Smells good, lush, works wonders and ingredients are easily obtained from Target, Beauty Supply Stores, Burlington, Macy’s or anywhere oils and creams are found locally.
You can use either a facial pad, sponge or facial cleanser (electronic) to apply the mixed creams. It’s very easily applied and dries pretty quickly! However, you may want to rub in the cream very well until comfortable with how it feels and looks.
I find the best time to apply it, is after showering or early in the morning. You could even apply it before going to bed, but your pillow may be a little greasy in the morning depending on how much you apply.
