My Over 40 Skincare Routine

Skincare was not something I focused on until close to 40. I kept it to the bare minimal before then. For the last three years I have been paying more attention, using products for fine lines, dark spots and some rosacea.

When the ski patrol first came to me when I had my ski accident, they asked me where my parents where. They could only see the top half of my face. I giggled and said, “Um, I’m the parent!” I’m thinking my routine is working and thought I’d share. Granted I do believe my genetics play a large factor in this game.

Some of the links below are referral/affiliate links. I will receive a small commission if you click on one and purchase an item. This is at no extra cost to you, thank you!

No 7 Serum– used everywhere at least once a day, sometimes day and night depending on how my skin feels.

Origins Plantscription(TM) Retinol Night Moisturizer – at night, on top of my serum.

Polyglutamic Acid– used as a makeup primer, only in the morning, after serum.

Balance Me Eye Cream– I have serious dark eye circles. I use this morning and night and put it on last in the routine. I received this from my monthly Ipsy bags.

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Spf 30 – only mornings, after acid (lol)

Seasonal items:

Cetaphil SPF Moisturizer– I use this in summer instead of the polyglutemic acid, which isn’t great when you are spending lots of time in the sun anyway. I like the added SPF under my tinted moisturizer.

Eminence Calm Skin Chamomile Moisturizer– I started using this product this winter, not on my T zone area of my face, but everywhere else and it has made a huge difference in eliminating winter dryness. I can’t use it everyday because I will break out, especially with wearing facial masks this pandemic, but when I’m feeling extra dry I’ll use it as needed, any time of day. Well worth the cost and it still looks like I barely used any out of the tub.

At the end of every day I wash my face with Trader Joe’s makeup remover wipes. I haven’t found anything that compares to them and for the price you can’t go wrong!

Do you have any great skin products you love?
