Editor's Pick - Top Three Skincare Creams

Editor, Michelle Larin, shares her top three skincare creams to combat the signs of aging and promote a youthful complexion. 

"As you move into your late 20s and beyond, it becomes more important to hydrate and nourish your skin with a good quality moisturiser.  I use baby wipes to cleanse my skin and I don't even bother to tone, but I never skimp on moisturiser. I recommend using one containing only natural ingredients (to ensure the product is non-harmful to your skin).  I tend to rotate between three."
"At 29, my skin is still very youthful, which I think is a testament to good genes, keeping out of direct sunlight and using these three products!"

1. Trinity Vitamin E Cream ($22 Discount Vitamins)

Made in Australia, Trinity Vitamin E Cream comprises a minimum 10% natural vitamin E (d-alpha-tocopherol) in a base of spring water, vegetable glycerine, almond oil, macadamia oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, vegetable emulsifying wax, jojoba oil, apricot oil, rosehip oil, avocado oil, evening primrose oil, rosemary antioxidant and grapefruit seed extract.

Vitamin E helps to protect against infection, assist with wound repair and reduces the effects of the ageing process on the skin. It has further been shown effective in reducing the reddening of the skin caused by excessive sunlight or UV radiation.  Coconut oil, rosehip oil and evening primrose oil also assist in repairing the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which assault healthy cells causing wrinkles to form.

From the USA, 100% Pure Acai Berry Antioxidant Face Cream contains oganic aloe barbadensis leaf juice, organic rosa centifolia flower water (rose hydrosol), euterpe oleracea pulp (acai berry) fruit oil, extracts of: calendula officinalis (calendula) flower, euterpe oleracea (acai berry) fruit, euphorbiac erifera cera (candelilla), rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf, thymus vulgaris (thyme) flower/leaf, origanum vulgare (oregano) leaf, hydrastis canadensis (goldenseal) and lonicera caprifolium (Japanese honeysuckle), sodium ascorbate (vitamin C) and tocopherol (vitamin E).

Acai berries are the fruit of the Palm Acai, native to the Amazon region of South America. These berries are the greatest known source of antioxidants in the world.  They are high in vitamins (particularly A and E), essential fatty acids (omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9) and amino acids, all of which facilitate skin-cell regeneration and repair.  They also contain flavonoids (which reduce inflammation caused by acne) and phytosterols (which stimulate collagen production).
