I’ve been using organic skincare for years and committed to only using natural products. But as I get older, I find that organic products aren’t meeting all of my skincare needs. So, earlier this year, I added a retinol cream to my skincare regimen and I’m happy, I did. My skin discolorations are finally fading. So it dawned on me, that’s exactly what people like me should be doing. If you take your skincare seriously, you may want to find a balance between organic products and the rest.
I will look for organic first and for about 70% of my skincare needs, I can find products that deliver. When it comes to hydration, cleansing, and toning, there are products with little to no chemicals that truly deliver. But for anti-aging and skin repair, I’m okay with bringing out the big guns. This balanced approach to skincare, I think, is the best way skincare addicts like me, can up our complexion game.
So with all that said, here are our picks of the best products for skin that needs a little more hydration, repair and
1. Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream
PRICE: $38 (1.6 oz)
This cream is incredibly moisturizing and with only seven gentle, non-irritating ingredients, it is great for dry, sensitive skin types.
2. Luminance Deep Hydration Organic Moisturizer
This cream is organic, vegan and cruelty-free. It’s also packed with the finest, nutrient-rich ingredients like apricot kernel, grape seed, Jojoba, avocado and lavender water. What is amazing os how well this organic cream works. It leaves your skin healthy and supple looking and helps it retain moisture and regain elasticity.
3. Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment,
Yes, this is expensive, and yes, you’re going to have some doubts about shelling out the money, but after approximately one week, your crazy-smooth, soft, and clear skin will have made up for the price a billion times over. This cult-favorite night treatment is 5 percent lactic acid, an AHA that gently exfoliates skin on a cellular level to clear clogged pores, plump fine lines, and fade dark spots and acne scars.
4. Triple Hyaluronic Antioxidant Hydration Serum
This multipurpose formula hydrates and brightens dull skin. With powerful ingredients such as three forms of hyaluronic acid, strawberry extract, and an amino acid-derived peptide, this cream is not organic.
This hyaluronic formulation from Allies of Skin seriously ups the game with a blend of peptides, stem cells, and antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and promote plump, hydrated skin that glows.
5. Drunk Elephant C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum
Known as one of the most popular vitamin C serums on the market, we weren’t surprised to see this formula from Drunk Elephant at the tip-top of Sephora’s best-seller page. It’s user-friendly for every skin type and features a no-nonsense blend of antioxidants, skin-loving nutrients, and brightening fruit enzymes.
