Gentle moisturizer that won't clog pores
 
Any recs would be really appreciated!

I don't too much for my face but I inherited worry lines on my forehead from my dad and have been noticing them more pronouncedly in the past two years. Thinking in order to help out the situation I'll start gently exfoliating and applying a moisturizer where the lines are.

Olay Regenerist - i really do find it to be quite gentle.

1. pure aloe vera.
2. jojoba oil and water mix.

Moisturizers do not fix or prevent wrinkles. Never have, never will. The only proven wrinkle reducer is Retin-A.

That said...emu oil is a gentle, non-comedogenic, non-skin-damaging moisturizer. Mixed with a little hyaluronic acid in the palm before applying (a humescent ingredient that you can buy separately to help it sink in), it makes the perfect moisturizer.

For those opposed to animal products, jojoba oil with HA is second best.

I've been using Lac-hydrin lotion with some FOTE aloe vera gel. The lotion is a 5% AHA which lightly exfoliates the skin.

:lol: Thought about that. Of course it's out of the question for financial reasons, but even if it wasn't, I would be afraid of having one of those unnatural looking non flexible faces in the end.

RCW-that was in the back of my mind that moisturizer won't help reduce the wrinkles. TY for the Retin-A tip.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone :)
