The 2009 CEW Beauty Award Finalists.

These products all SOUND wonderful. Some of them can work for one person but not for another because everyone has a different skin type and there are various problems people are trying to solve. Plus, skin is the largest organ. and more actually enters your body through it than from the food you eat. What you put on your skin reaches all your organs quickly - think about birth control, seasickness and nicotine patches..
The FDA does NOT regulate what companies put in skin care products. The FDA website states, “Cosmetic firms are responsible for substantiating the safety of their products and ingredients before marketing." Holy cow!! This is great for the manufacturers, but not for consumers.
..... Check out the ingredients on the label of any product before you put it on your face or body. I learned this hard way - with severe reactions to things that should not be in skin care products - and subsequent costly dermatologist bills!
Hi try using this ]anti wrinkle moisturizer it clears away dry skin.
