Skin care is the one and only effective solution to the different types of skin problems possible. The majority of the skin problems vary because skin types vary. For instance, a dry skin needs a moisturizer because it needs to stay hydrated to be healthy. Or else the skin will become either flaky or will itch. You might think then an oily skin would not require that much of moisturizer.
But eventually, it also would counter balance the drying products you would use on your oily skin. The drying products would induce your skin to produce more oil and hence you would need to have an oil control moisturizer to maintain a healthy balance. Thus we can see that skin care becomes an essential preventive measure to have a healthy glowing skin.
However are all the over the counter skin care products as effective as they promise to be? If you have watched the skin care ads, you would have noticed as to how most of the skin care products advertise themselves as being effective against aging, wrinkles, dry skin. But then there’s no way you would find out which one works and which one doesn’t. So here we would try to make it easier for you to make a choice.

10. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum
At number 10, we have this cheap and yet effective skin moisturizer from Aveeno. It sure does magic on oily skin. It is not at all greasy and has a pleasant fragrance. Also the SPF 15 is, good enough to prevent sun burn if your skin is not pale. It sure gives you the radiance it promises but it is owing to fine glitter material which is inherent in the product. People with an allergy to methylparaben are advised not to use this product.
09. Timeless Skin Care 20% Vitamin C Plus E Ferulic Acid Serum
Priced at $15.32 a piece, it contains the age old solution to healthy skin – Vitamin C. Customers have reported positive change in skin tone after using this product. One customer who highly rates this product recommends using this with a derma roller. The packaging is simple and the product comes in dark glass bottles to prevent the Vitamin C from break down. The downside of it is that people who wear makeup might find it difficult to put on this serum as it is moderately thick.
08. ArtNaturals Anti-Aging Vitamin-C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & Vit E Wrinkle Repairs Dark Circles
This is one of the most affordable over the counter serum options available. You need to give this serum time to see it work wonders. It can be worn with light- moderate makeup. Since it is not a moisturizer, you need to couple it with a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. It is a bit sticky and when initially used might give off a smell(but it doesn’t stay).
07. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel
One of the best solutions for dry skin is this product. It is a temporary answer to both eczema and rashes and works on all skin types. This serum also plays the role of a moisturizer and has no fragrance. It works quickly. A water based gel is a good alternative if you are trying to avoid the heavy use of moisturizers.
06. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer
Effective for both men and women, it helps keep the face silky and rejuvenated. Highly recommended for those with rosacea. Regardless of age, this cream helps all types of face remain hydrated. One downside is – it doesn’t have SPF. It also has a pleasant smell which might suit your rejuvenated look.
05. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream, Extra-Dry Skin
A value for money product: it makes the skin supple and gives it its natural glow. Does both the work of a serum and a moisturizer. It is recommended for dry skin. We call it value for money since it would last for about 3 months before you need the next refill. It goes fine with any kind of makeup.
004. Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream with the pump for sensitive skin
One of our personal favorites is this product from Vanicream. It treats a lot of skin problems ranging from eczema to ichthyosis. It is a dermatologist recommended over the counter product. This has no side-effects and also contains no allergic constituents(no parabens). It is thick and will take its time to dry. But this is a highly effective cream when it comes to proper skin hydration.
03. EltaMD UV Daily Broad-Spectrum SPF 40 Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen
Thanks to the high SPF value, this is our recommended product for those trying to find the skin from the scorching sun. A word of caution: Doesn’t have a nice fragrance to go with.
