So I am still looking for the magic ingredient that will turn back the clock for my 50 something sundamaged skin. After lots of resarch I have come up with Hyaluronic acid ,Matrixyl 3000, msm and Retin A. I am needing maximum impact!! Any suggestions out there. I have read alll the forums answers with names of products , however being in Australia excludes me from finding them so I am in search of the magic potion and then can try and track down a local product .
Thanks heaps for your contibutions.
A magic pill would be great but unfortunately I need to work hard to make my skin look good and sometimes it's trial and error on what works. I also like to change things around to make things work better . I have normal/dry combination skin that tends to get dry in the winter. I want products to plump up my skin, keep it hydrated and eliminate wrinkles around my eyes.
I use a DIY vitamin C serum. This is the one I am currently using.
1 ml spoon of L-absorbic Acid Powder (finely milled)
2 ml of distilled water...to this you add Garden of Wisdon base gel to fill a 10ml cup. Stir well and use.
I make enough for two days worth. I think this is the easiest and best Vit C cause I make it fresh.
After 10-15 minutes, I add a peptide serum from Cellular Skin RX called SuperMax Multi-Peptide Skin Solution Serum. And Philosophy Shelter for the face broad spectrum spf 30 -untinted moisturizer.
Night time I use Green Cream which is a retinol product..I use level 6. Since Green Cream has aloe in it, I find I don't need a moisturizer...but if I do, the one that works best for my skin is from Skin Actives called Canvas Base.
The cleansers I use varies. I like to use jojoba oil at night. I use it as a cleansing oil. I find that it works better to get rid of the sunscreen. I use the Microdelivery exfoliating wash nightly in the spring & summer, every other night in the winter. On alternate nights I use a hydrating cleansing balm.
I do this regime 5 days a week...on weekends I give my skin a break from the Green Cream retinol. I use a microfiber cloth in the evening and use Skin Actives Anti Aging Cream with Resveratrol and their Canvas Base cream (i add jojoba & advocado oil to it)...love, love, love their creams..super hydrating and firming! I also love their eye cream..I Bright.
This is what is working for me at the moment....
What skin concerns do you have? Is your skin dry, normal or oily??
Hope we can help answer your questions...
