The best skin care prod­ucts

Cecil Whig - - COMICS & PUZZLES -

High-qual­ity and ef­fec­tive skin care should not be con­sid­ered a lux­ury avail­able only to the wealthy. If you are dili­gent, you can find high-qual­ity rea­son­ably priced skin care prod­ucts that are equal to, if not su­pe­rior to, their depart­ment store cousins.

Ce­taphil makes an ex­cel­lent line of af­ford­able skin care prod­ucts. The Ce­taphil Gen­tle Skin Cleanser is less than $10 for 8 ounces ($19 for a twopack), and Ce­taphil Mois­tur­iz­ing Cream is priced well at about $11 for 16 ounces. Tip: Wal­mart sells a generic ver­sion un­der its brand name Equate for about $6.50.

Other cleansers that re­ceive high marks with my der­ma­tol­o­gist are Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser Mois­tur­iz­ing Deep Cleanser ($5 for 3.5 ounces), Ba­sis Sen­si­tive Skin Bar ($2.00 per 4-ounce bar), Lever 2000 bars (89 cents per 4-ounce bar) and Dove Sen­si­tive Skin bars (about 75 cents per 4-ounce bar).

If you are con­cerned about wrin­kles and avoid­ing skin can­cer , Neu­tro­gena Healthy Skin An­tiWrin­kle Cream ($12 for 1.4 ounces) is a prod­uct you should con­sider. This is more than a mois­tur­izer. It’s a skin preser­va­tion sys­tem, and it’s much cheaper than a very ex­pen­sive der­ma­tol­o­gist pre-can­cer pro­ce­dure.

John­son’s No-Tears Baby Sham­poo (about $6) is an ex­cel­lent eye makeup re­mover. I have heard from sev­eral oph­thal­mol­o­gists that this is par­tic­u­larly rec­om­mended for their pa­tients who wear con­tact lenses be­cause it also re­moves pro­tein build-up that plagues many lens wear­ers. It can be used full strength. Rinse well. EV­ERY­DAY CHEAPSKATE
