I was wanting some assistance on some of the Cosmedix products. I have quite dry skin and have recently purchased the gentle cleanser, lightning serum (for my pigmentation) and hydrate + Daily moisturizer as my everyday moisturizer. I have had a look at some of the other products and Emulsion seems like a good product for dry skin. What everyday moisturizer would you recommend for dry skin and what night creams would you recommend to nourish the skin and to assist with the reduction of fine lines. I hope to hear from someone soon.
Cosmedix Emulsion is an excellent hydrating moisturiser. However, for long term moisturisation (at the expense of some initial dryness/flakiness as the skin accomodates) is a topical retinoid. The best ones from Cosmedix are Refine and Refine Plus. These help to speed the exfoliation of skin and turnover of skin, minimising dryness in the long term.
