It’s so hard to keep my skin from feeling dry. And it doesn’t just feel dry — it is dry! And — I’m in my 60’s, so there’s no going back. It’s all I can do to keep this thirsty skin satisfied and I’m always open to new products. Right now I’m working with some great products for my day time routine. And, my hope is that I will at some point regain some semblance of Dewy skin.
My lifestyle doesn’t help my skin much. I have a few strikes against me in that I live in the mountains in the winter and spend about 4 hours a day outside in the elements. Being in Utah, if it isn’t snowing, the sun is shining and it’s pretty gorgeous and that’s just one reason I love it here. So, I cannot resist, nor do I want to resist going outside. But this amount of joy outside comes at a price. I do not have dewy moist skin. A
Because I am always outside either walking, skiing, hiking, biking — you name it and I’m not in a protected indoor gym, outdoors in where I live. And my skin shows it.
So, I do what every smart woman over 50 and 60 and beyond does, I make sure to moisturize and put on plenty of sunblock and listen to my dermatologist and reapply whatever products they suggest.
Let me start with my moisturizer. I love Skin Ceuticals.
This Day Time cream is for my “Mature” skin. Yes it’s all grown up but still needs day care.
SkinCe A.G-E Interrupter Mature Skin Treatment (Anti-Wrinkle) – For Dry, Normal, and Sensitive Skin Type – 1.7 o.z. / 48 ml / 48 g
I also apply at night the Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic and I think the price is insane ($117) but what can I do — it’s recommended by my Derm so I buy it. It does however last for 2 months for me.
Skin Care CE Ferulic Serum C E Ferulic with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid- 30 ml
I always carry
My favorite Sunblock was prescribed by my Dermatologist. It’s the Elta Md skincare line with SPF 36. It’s tinted and has a great glow and I apply it every time I go out.
Once again, I am a slave to dry lips from too much sun exposure and I have fallen in love with eh recommended Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster which is a must but it doesn’t have sun block so you have to add that after.
PCA SKIN Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster, Lip Plumper Serum for Plump Lips, Hydrates and Reduces Lip Lines for a Fuller Look, Helps Increase Lip Volume.
Oh and one more thing — I apply and reapply my Super Goop Play with 50 SPF throughout the day to my face. I love this stuff and use it in summer and winter. This sun care cream is truly for Athletes.
