Do you have any suggestions about moisturizing creams or oils that would prevent the skin from the effects of cold weather or just the elements in general? Can some of these products actually reverse aging as the ads claim? Is price the measure of quality in these products?

Therese Foure:

Not all people need moisturizers. If you have oily, combination, or acne-prone skin, moisturizers with emollients in them could cause problems. They add more oil to already oily skin. But if your skin is dry, they certainly help to ease the dryness.

Good moisturizers have a lot of water-binding agents, a good portion of antioxidants, and sun-protection chemicals. Good moisturizers do not have irritating substances that cause your skin to become inflamed. But even the best and most well-advertised moisturizer will not stop your skin from wrinkling, although it will help your skin to look less wrinkled.

Price is definitely not the measure of effectiveness. Some modestly-priced products are just as good as the products with sky-high prices.

There are many fine moisturizers on the market, two of which are Aveeno's Skin Brightening Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 and Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. The second one I mentioned does not have retinol - that's the only difference. These are as good as anything twice or even ten times the price.
