Moisturising is one of the key principles of daily skincare, but finding the right product can be bewildering.
Website TheServe.co investigated moisturisers with Dr Ross Perry of Cosmedics Skin Clinics, looking at his recommendations of the best moisturisers at every price point.
Both of these ‘value choices’ have plain and medical-looking packaging – the emphasis being on results not on marketing
“Doublebase works very well, especially if you have dry skin. It’s a nice balance between greasy enough to work and not so heavy that is creates other skin issues or looks cosmetically unacceptable.”
“Dermol has the same effect, but has antimicrobial properties so good for acne skin.”
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, £13.95
“Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream does just what it says on the [tube]. Simple and effective and just a cream to have on hand or carry in your bag.”
“Murad Day Cream with Vitamin C works well for non-problematic skin and is a light moisturiser that also has antioxidant effects due to the Vitamin C.”
The Murad range is available at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon. Therapists at the salon also offer a range of professional Murad peels and facials using Murad products specially chosen for each client’s skin type.
Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, £41.89
“Skinceuticals B5 hydrate serum is a gel like lotion that sinks into the skin to hydrate from within. It’s a bit messy to apply but if you need a boost to the skin’s hydration without a greasy film this may be the answer. Best results after few weeks.”
Skinceuticals Eye Balm, £47.89
“Skinceuticals eye balm is just rich and creamy and helps refirm tired eye areas.”
The Murad range is available at Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon.
Dermaquest Delicate Daily Moisturiser, £35
“Dermaquest Daily Moisturizer works well but is affordable and part of the cosmeceutical range that is halfway between standard beauty creams and prescription based creams.”
Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon offer a range of advanced face, hair removal and body treatments using the top of the range technology such as the CACI, Hydradermie, EDS Dermastamp and laser hair removal. Their Beauty Therapists are fully trained and qualified to use the latest equipment and offer an extensive choice of customisable options.
