IT looks like the summer has finally arrived, but we all know that harsh rays of the sun can have a damaging effect on our skin, giving us lines and wrinkles and drying out our complexions. So we asked beauty expert Sue Moxley from South Ockendon to try out some of the best creams to combat skin damage, with a price to suit all budgets.
Garnier Ultra Lift Day Cream is enriched with pro-retinol to reduce the appearance of even deep wrinkles and is enriched with ginger extract It is easily absorbed into skin so doesn’t leave a greasy residue, making it an excellent base for make-up (£9.49 available nationwide).
One of the UK’s most popular anti ageing creams is Nivea Visage’s Anti-Wrinkle Q10. It contains co-enzyme Q10 with its great anti ageing properties and compatibility with the skin and promises visible wrinkle reduction in four weeks (£10.65 available nationwide).
Eucerin Hyaluron Filler contains two super active ingredients which will smooth the skin and give an instant plumping effect (£24.99 available from Boots stores and Selfridges, London).
Clarins always produce some great skin products and its Multi-Active Night Cream is no exception. The formula has been updated and improved to make the effects even better (£37 available at beauty counters nationwide).
For a more affordable choice with great results try Garnier Ultra Lift Night Cream which is enriched with pro-retinol to intensely nourish the skin with moisture leaving your complexion looking smoother when you wake up (£8.99 available nationwide).
The delicate skin around the eye contour is incredibly fine, up to four times thinner than the skin elsewhere on the face, so eye creams should be lighter so as not to drag the skin or worsen puffiness.
Derma Intensive+ has two great products specifically designed for the delicate eye area. Choose from the Eye Revival Roll On (£5.40) or the Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream (£2.79 both available from Tesco).
Garnier Ultra Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream has a unique formula, enriched with pro-retinol that works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eye contour area (£9.49 available nationwide).
We all have areas on our face which we feel need extra special treatment and these are two of my favourites.
Garnier Ultra Lift Anti-Wrinkle Roll-on continuously releases the formula, enriched with pro-retinol to help fight the appearance of wrinkles on the skin’s surface for a double epidermal action (£9.99 available nationwide).
M&S Formula Age Repair Ceramide Collagen Serum is an intense shot of moisture for the skin to smooth out those wrinkles (£9.50 available from M&S).
