my skincare routine for mature skin

  1. MaryLynne says:

    Hi Beth
    Do you ever wash your face with water? I find it helps me wake up in the morning but I don’t know if there are any benefits to my face

    • Beth Djalali says:

      well, water is definitely good for our skin which is why we need to be drinking plenty of it each day. but just washing your face with water wouldn’t help with removing the impurities our skin builds up or sloughing off dead skin cells.

    Thank you so much for the information on nature skin care. I am always looking for ways to improve my routine.

    I have a question as to which lotion or product you use on the rest of your skin, I.e. arms and legs, etc. I would also like to know your opinion of Crepe Erase if you feel comfortable sharing. I have seen the recommendations but I’m in doubt about investing in it. Thank you for your time and your wonderful blog.
    Best, Diane

    Thanks for the comprehensive list, Beth! Not sure I can afford to try them all, but I’m definitely interested in your suggestions. Have a great week!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      just try one new product. and go from there. there have been so many advances in skincare and there are so many great products to choose from. have a great week yourself!

    I like your blog but I was not really sure about the skin becoming resistant to products having a scientific basis and this is what I found amongst other professionals also saying that is not accurate Some women believe they need to change up their regimen every few months, in order to keep their skin-care products effective, but New York dermatologist Neal Schultz, MD, says this should not be necessary. “It’s very unusual for your skin to ‘get used to’ the beneficial effects of skin-care products,” he says. “When the active ingredients in your products are giving you the results and improvement you want, there’s no reason for the active ingredients in that product to stop giving you the same result. Unless, of course, the condition you’re treating changes.”

    • Beth Djalali says:

      this is where we will have to agree to disagree. and i am not suggesting to switch products daily – every three to six months. you would never be able to gauge the results. but there are many dermatologists who recommend changing products: Dr. Stevenson M.D. at NYU and Dr. Bergstrom at the University of Washington and a slew of others. It sounds as if Dr. Schultz would switch products “if the conditions you’re treating changes.” and that happens often whether the weather (my summer and winter regimens are different) aging, hormonal shifts, even a new workout routine. prescription options do take longer to work so, by all means, give it a chance to work. but just like penicillin, our bodies do build up a tolerance and the effectiveness lessens over time. and i know from personal experience that changing skincare products, experimenting with new ones has done a world of good. there have been so many amazing advances in the past five years alone.

    Hi Beth, a question for you. I particularly like the lipstick you wore in the picture do you in the white blouse with the Large pink heart behind you in the background. Would it be possible to let me know brand and shade? Thanks in advance for your help if possible. Andrea

    I love your hair color and style. Can you tell me how you style it and with what products. I love the cut and it looks very classy and chic.
