Question: Question from Adele

Sorry I didn't get back to you, I am 45 years old. Which anti-ageing skin care products should I be using?

Answer

Please bear in mind that I am basing my answer to your question, purely on the information you have given me, i.e. your age and the fact that you enquiring about “age products.”

Every ageing skin needs some very definite “steps” in their home care regime. 1) You need to increase cell turn over, using something like vitamin A and good exfoliating products (such as AHA’s or enzymes). 2) You need goo protection during the day in the form of Anti-Oxidants and a good SPF. 3) You need growth factors to work on repairing the damage that has already happened. 4) You need a good oral supplement to boost your skin from the inside.

So there is a recipe to follow:

1)      Cleanse twice a day, preferably with a cleanser that will encourage cell turn over. (EG. Neostrata’s Exfoliating Wash;  Nimue Cleanser)

2)      During the Day – Anti-Oxidant Serum. (EG. Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic or Phloretin), and then any moisturiser of your choice on top, followed by a god facial sunblock (EG Heliocare)

3)      At night, alternate between a good Vit A product (Skin Medica retinol serum; Skin Ceuticals Retinol Serum; Lamelle’s Evening Glow), and a good growth factor product (EG. Lamelle’s Dermaheal Ultra Moisturising Renewal Cream)

4)      A daily supplement (EG. Lamelle’s Ovelle capsules or Heliocare Capsules)
