anti-aging skincare on a budget

    What do you use for the eye area?

    I’m a big fan of the Clinique 3-step system (I use system 2) and though a department store brand, it is actually quite reasonable. The system includes a cleanser, exfoliator, and moisturizer and once you buy the system once, you can replenish with each product individually. I supplement with Clinique’s cleansing balm to remove make-up and use Rx tretinoin from Curology. That said, I think Neutrogena and Aveeno cleansers are excellent and I used RoC moisturizers prior to Curology.

    Hi Beth, for about 6 months now I’ve started to use Simple protect and glow range as my skin started to react to everything I was using. So I gave the Simple range a go and I’ve been so pleased with it. I’ve also incorporated a sunscreen everyday which I never did before unless I was on holiday, its made a huge difference. My skin is so much happier now xoxo

    This is an extremely informative post! I’ve been starting to take much better care of my skin since I hit my mid-forties and beyond. I found that retinol works wonders for brightening up my complexion. However, certain age spots or sun damage is beyond OTC and needs a laser! I also do love a good sheetmask, and my trick is to buy them at my local Asian market which are so much cheaper than single packs, plus you can find interesting skin products there that you won’t find anywhere else. I also love the Clinique line and stock up at Ulta or Sephora whenever there is a sale going on.

    I found especially with COVID and wearing masks that my pores have gotten so blocked and I am even getting acne again. I’ve been trying to be diligent about washing my makeup off every night (the “Magic Eraser” towel is amazing) and also spot treat with salicylic acid products to get rid of the maskne.

    I love any Skincare tips and tricks!!

    As an esthetician, I’m particular abt my skin. After I apply my nightly routine, I always put CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream over it. Nothing compares!

    I started using the Clinque 3-step system when I was in my 30’s and it worked well then. As I got older I amped up my routine to include retinol. I love going to spas when vacationing and I was introduced to some higher end retinols. I have also tried Retin A. I feel that Retin A is effective, but can be extremely drying. With the retinols you can use them everyday with good results and at a great price. I used to use the same brand for everything – cleanser, toners, etc., but now rotate and don’t stick to just one brand. A must is Vitamin C serum and retinal with collagen. I also use a night time moisturizer with retinol. With all the reasonably priced products available today it’s not necessary to break the bank, but consistency is the key. In addition to the items mentioned above, I do a once a week manual exfoliation with a battery operated machine from Olay that I have had for years. I also give my husband facials! I recently saw a friend from my hometown that I hadn’t seen for about 7 years and she said – you still have that porcelain skin. Such a nice thing to say. We cannot stop the hands of time, but maybe we can slow it down. My daughter is now in her 40’s and has cranked up her skin care. I love this post – what’s that old saying you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself. Thanks, Beth! Love all you do.

    I enjoyed today’s blog. I used Retin A for about 25 years until my face became too sensitive while getting chemo and I have not been able to go back to it. Recently I discovered bakuchiol and I am really enjoying it with no side effects. Just thought I would mention it for those who are sensitive to retinol.

    Love your post and your skin looks fabulous. I took my skin for granted but trying to be better. Using sun screen most days, washing off makeup and using retinol at night. Someone did consistency was the key, I agree.
