Makeup can cover a number of skin issues: blemishes, dark circles or rosacea. But you need something to treat these concerns as well. Face and eye creams help to combat alot of issues easily.
A good face cream sort of guarantees clearer skin. It's that simple. You have to determine what meets your needs. Fighting acne, anti-aging, firming, evening skin tone? Focus on your biggest problem.
One of my favorites is L'OREAL PARIS Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 Lotion. It's a mild moisturizer that's ideal for sensitive skin, evens skin tone and promotes collagen production, a must for a youthful appearance. It also gives you a luminous finish...soft and dewy/$20 at drugstores. I love this for brides!
Another to try is KINERASE Cream/$110 at drugstore.com. This fragrance free moisturizer improves the skin's texture, remedies blotchiness and is perfect for sensitive skin. The active ingredient kinetin reduces lines and wrinkles. Winner of Allure's Best of Beauty Award for four years.
BOSCIA Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment uses all natural ingredients to calm the skin and reduce puffiness.

Coix seed acts as the anti-inflammatory (counters bags), Tocopherol Vitamin E promotes circulation and diminishes dark circles and Willowherb reduces redness/$38 at Sephora.
