Since I turned 50, I have become more aware of the importance of taking care of your skin. Not just average skin care at 50 but healthy glowing skin. We all know that washing off makeup before going to bed is a necessity, if you don’t do it, your skin will suffer. However there is more to it than just washing your face, you have to exfoliate, moisturize and apply serums to stop the wrinkles. Yes, the wrinkles, those pesky lines that begin showing up as we gracefully age. But how do we know which products really work and which don’t?
I have oily skin so I need products that will keep the oil away during the day. I am a product junkie, I’ve tried many, many cleansers, moisturizers and masks; I’ve finally found the perfect combination of products that works for me. Check out some of my favorite skin care products below that I use to achieve glowing skin.
This is by far my favorite cleanser, it’s a gentle cream-to-foam antioxidant that is gentle on the skin while cleansing and removing makeup. This product is part of my morning skin care routine.
This cleanser is part of my evening routine, it thoroughly deep cleanses my skin and removes all of the oil that has accumulated throughout the day. I don’t tend to get breakouts however this product does contain Salicylic Acid to get rid of acne.
There are many benefits to using Witch Hazel, it is known to tighten pores, reduce inflammation, fight acne and improve skin tone. It is a definite in my skin care routine and I use it in the morning and in the evening. I have tried a few brands, but this is my favorite.
As you age, the amount of collagen in your skin decreases which allows wrinkles to appear. This miracle product as I call it, helps to re-plump your skin, I mix it with my moisturizer in the morning and the evening. This product here is the bomb and is less than $10. In just 4 months of use, my skin has tightened tremendously, the lines around my eyes are almost gone. Whenever I replenish, I always buy at least 2 jars 🙂
This product is a bit pricey at $50, but a little goes a long way especially since I mix it with the collagen moisture filler. This moisturizer contains SPF and is light and not oily. This is a 24 hour moisturizer so I am able to use it in the morning and the evening. It goes on very smooth and leaves my skin feeling soft.
And finally, during the winter months I apply this mask once a week. It’s an oil-free mask that doesn’t clog pores and the best part is that you apply this mask every night. You are probably thinking is it messy and does it get on the pillow, and the answer it Not at all. It dries on the face similar to a moisturizer and when you wake up, you rinse it right off. I love the way my skin feels and glows after using this mask.
