A Simple and Effective Pro-Aging Skincare Routine

    Thank you for this post. I love that so many of the products are in my price range. I have added many to my List on Amazon, so when I finish the products I am using, I can find your suggestions.
    Have a wonderful holiday!

    • Wonderful Arna! So glad the mix of price points is helpful. Just like makeup and clothing, I don’t think your entire face has to be complete with all super pricey products – there are so many great and effective drugstore brands and products available right now! Happiest of HOlidays to you as well and thank you for being here!

    Great post, Jennifer. Always happy to see effective and reasonably priced products. Will definitely try a few to save some money. I do love Tatcha moisturizer in the purple jar. Believe it or not, I recently used Pond’s moisturizing cleanser at my sisters house. It’s great at removing waterproof mascara and seems to really clean deeply, and didn’t aggravate my sensitive skin. Old school stuff. Who knew?

      Glad you enjoyed it Deanna and gave you some good products at various price point options! And I totally believe it about the old school Ponds still being effective! “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” right??

    My mam was a geriatric nurse and I often accompanied her when she was just popping into work to check on her “oldies” outside of her work hours. (Oldies was her word, not mine!). Anyway. I’d chat with the residents, and there were a few women over the years who had incredible skin. They’d have been in their 80’s and 90’s, so I asked secrets. Maybe because there were less options back then (I’m the same birth year as you Jennifer, so these women would be 110-120 years old if still alive!), but over and over again I heard “Ponds cold cream and Olay moisturizer”. So that’s what I use – Ponds to remove makeup (not that I wear much), Olay facewashes (I rotate between regenerist, retinol and vitamin C types, and a scrub after the gym), eye creams (vitamin C for the day, rotate between retinol and brightening at night), serum (vit C for day, anti-aging at night), moisturizer (one with SPF for day, rotate between hyaluronic acid and retinol at night). Maybe I’m lucky with genes too – my dad is 84 and has always had great skin, my (late) mam not so much but she smoked from her teens on which is the worst thing you can do for your skin IMO (and not just your skin!) – but people are always really surprised when they hear my age, they tend to think I’m mid 30’s at oldest.

      I love hearing these recommendations from women that have lived life to their fullest and used some of the more simple but effective products! I just might have to grab a tub of Ponds cold cream again to try and add it into my skincare regime after so many recommendations . I do believe genetics has a good bit to play into a woman’s skin as well – my 74 year old mom has less wrinkles than I do – no kidding!!
