Dear expert, I am 32 and have not used any moisturizer regularly. However my skin now looks dull with large open pores and redness on cheeks and forehead. I want to use olay total effects moisturizer. Is it good to use it regularly?
Mary Ruth Buchness, MD responded:
Dear shehnaz2011,
Any time you use a new moisturizer, you want to use it daily for at least a month, which is the length of time for your skin to turn-over from the bottom layer to the top. If you don't see a difference, or don't like the product, move on to the next one. I like Aveeno Positively Radiant and Eucerin Redness Relief as well. For the large pores, try a clay mask.
Hope this helps.

I agree with Dr. Buchness and I also think that the best moisturizer is the one that really makes your skin glow. Some moisturizers are sticky and greasy but leaves the skin dry after a while.
