Hi Mabel and welcome!
As Peri's post points out, the foundation of any rejuvenation program should be Retin-A or tazarotene
Vit C serum
Sunscreen

If you wanted to add a serum with Matrixyl or argireline (which shouldn't be used all over the face, just on targeted areas as you would Botox) that would be in addition to, not instead of!

Hth a little.

Since you live in the UK, you have access to some of the best sunscreens out there.
Unlike us in the states. Unless we want to import them.
Here's a great thread talking about some of the top ones.

Assuming they ship to the UK, get your retin-a (tretinoin) from Prescription Drugs & Medicines, Indian online pharmacy for all type of generic drugs
or www.medsmex.com
A number of us here buy from these proven sites.

As for the C serum, you could spend a fortune and buy a proven one like Skinceuticals CE Ferulic or save a bunch of $$$$ and make your own.

As to the other ingredients, I'm not sold on them at the moment.

HI Mabel
I used the isomers sunscreen and, while it was cosmetically elegant and nice to apply and wear, it didn't have much in the way of the right sunscreening agents so I wouldn't reorder it.

Hi Mabel,

I would recommend the l'occitane range because not only are they effective but they are natural-based.

Warmest regards,

Redrose

I'm 10 years older than you and I think my aging problems are worse than yours. Fortunately I've found some darn effective products recently. A month and a half ago I started using Janson Beckett Alpha Derma CE and Peptide Skin Prep. I'm amazed at the results I've gotten so far. Nothing I had tried before worked so fast and well on my skin. Alpha Derma CE has argireline, collagen, elastin, dmae, vitamin c and alpha lipoic acid etc. I can't wait to see how my skin will look in 3 or 6 months.

Hi Mabel, first off, congrats on having survived 1/2 a century! I turn 45 thids year & I cannot wait to be 50 . How grand! As for 'looking 50', I'm uncertain what that means. I see many teenagers who live off of fast food who look much older than I do & then there's this 75 yr old man who does figure skating tricks at the rink in winter. From the neck down, he's 16. His face is maybe 40.

One of the best treatments you can give yourself is Retin A. I use this myelf & I haven't got a line or wrinkle to my name. Sunscreen is a must.

Mabrl, I see you're in the UK; are you one og those pocrelain white ladies with blue ueus? There were so many lovely 'older women' in the UK when I visited. these ladies out classed & out looked the younger women by a long-shot (think Helen Mirren). Make the most of your colouring. Retin A alternated with HQ2-4% will really make you glow like Nicole Kidman (who I think is 41). Drink plenty of water, do a teeth whitening session to rejuvenate your smile. Update your hairstyle. Take a good multivitamin. Update your wardrobe a little: there are stylish appropriate yet flattering clothes out there for every woman regardless of her size or age. Dance into your 50's like a goddess. Many people never make it that far.

I realize this is an old, old thread, but I just want to say that I'm so glad it's still available to find.

@Ondine, if you ever see this... I just want to say what lovely advice you posted here. Love it!
