Olay Regenerist cleanser in the morning, followed by witch hazel as a toner and Neutrogena 35 SPF Anti Aging moisturizer, at night, I usually just do toner if it is winter or cleanser in winter, ROC Night Time Creme and ROC Eye cream with Retinol and maybe an oil on top of that for my face (Rosehip Oil or Tranquility Oil by Mac). Twice a week I do a peel or srub. Hope this helps!

Currently I use the Mary Kay timewise system but havent been overwhelmed with it. <br />I really want to try that Nerium. Has anyone tried it? The before and afters almost seem to good to be true. <br /><br />

mrsalexander:  I use the three step Clinique program. You’re supposed to do it twice a day, morning and night, but I just do it at night. I also have a Clinique eye cream that I use at night. 

I’ve been considering getting the Clarisonic Mia but I’ve heard such mixed reviews (and it’s quite expensive). I should probably be doing more than I am so I’m interested to see other responses!

Oh, and I also get facials every 3 months but I’m not convinced they actually do anything.

It’s a little pricy, but Caudalie makes very good skincare products to address aging.

For good, natural products that can address the signs of aging but aren’t quite as painful on the wallet, look into Juice Beauty.

When was the last time you had a facial? Bring it up to your esthetician and ask what she suggests going forward.

  mrsalexander:  See if you can get some Retin-A! It has been a total LIFE SAVER for me! I had the same issues that you mentioned. It clears up acne, smoothes skin texture, minimizes wrinkles, and since it exfoliates so well, it also reduced previous scarring! Retin-A also is a collagen builder, so it helps to prevent future wrinkles. It is important to use it correctly, especially if your skin is sensitive, but I swear it is amazing!! My skin doesn’t break out, my skin is much smoother and my make-up no longer settles into lines around my mouth. I use it every other night before bed, and then gently exfoliate with my clairsonic in the morning.   

If you can’t get Retin-A, you can try products that contain retinol (which you can purchase at the drugstore). Retinol is the same as Retin-a, just milder…so it’s a little less effective. It’s a great starting point though…especially if you have sensitive skin. If you have any questions, I’d be happy to share my experience with it!  

Another AWESOME product is Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel. You can grab it at sephora. It’s a little pricey, but it lasts forever and is totally worth it. I literally felt like I had a new face after using it for the first time.   

…and don’t forget the basics like cleansing, moisturizing and sunscreen!! Good Luck! 🙂

my skin is sensitve and reacts the best to Simple’s products. They don’t have scents or any harsh ingredients.

I began using Paula’s Choice products a few years ago and have never looked back. If you’re tired of all the claims beauty companies make, PC will change your life!

I wash my face in the shower each morning with St Ives exfoliating apricot scrub, and then moisturize with Aveeno sensitive skin. I don’t wear any makeup on my face like foundation so I think that always helps to keep products off your face. I wash my face when I get home from work and then again before bed, moisturizing each time. Works like a charm.

somethingblue04:  I use the Clinique 3 step system and the eye cream too!  But I do the 3 step in the morning plus the evening.  Also, I really like the “Take the Day Off” balm for taking makeup off.  It’s really moisterizing.

fancymichelle:  I really should do it in the morning as well but I’m just too lazy. My rationale is that I just did it the night before and all I did is slep…how much work could my face need?! 

I will definitely look into the makeup remover. Generally I just use Vaseline – cheap and effective. 

LadyAprill:  How is the Clarisonic? Which one do you have? I’m debating making the investment. Winter is killing my skin – it’s so dry!

I use Cetaphil Gentle skin cleaner every day, along with CeraVe moisturizer.  I’m 43 and have tried the most expensive products and everything in between, but these by far are the most consistent in keeping my skin blemish free and supple!  When my skin is feeling extra dry I use either the Cetaphil or CeraVe deep moisturizer at night.

somethingblue04:  I have the mia. I have friends that swear up and down that it’s the holy grail, but honestly I think ANY spinning facial brush would work the same for waaaaay less. 🙂
