Updates skincare routine: winter specific

A few basics first, I have dry to normal skin, slightly sensitive and of late a bit acne prone. I am in my early 30s so anti-aging is very important to me.

Step 1) Cleanse your face with just water. Maybe spray some rose water.

Step 2) (optional) Every other day wipe face with salicylic acid pads. I use the ones from Oxy Sensitive cleansing Pads or its dupe from Rite Aid/CVS. I do this if my skin seems to be breaking out frequently.

Step 3) Apply Vitamin C serum. I am loving Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum Collagen Booster.

Step 4) Apply sunscreen. I like La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Face Melt-In Sunscreen Lotion
Or this Neutrogena one.

Step 1) Cleanse your face with a detergent free cleanser. I love these three from
RoseHip (for me)
WheatGerm (for me)
AHA (for my spouse's oily skin)

Step 2) Apply Avene Diacneal (my retinol treatment) or Mama lotion (my AHA treatment). I alternate them (so one night retinol and the next night AHA, repeat)

Step 3) Apply moisturizer. I am loving Cerave's PM lotion for summers.

Step 4) If my under eye area is feeling dry, I moisturize with Nivea cream (the blue tin, I got mine from Germany). In winters I use this cream on my entire face.

WEEKLY treatment:
Saturdays - I use a 40% lactic acid peel from
Wednesdays - I use a 30% glycolic peel from

If my skin is feeling dry, I use the Korres Thyme Yogurt Mask.

Really it is absolutely true that Make-up can make you look ten years younger but how old do you feel and look is more important. Yes I love shimmer make up a lot. Skin care is no easy thing. For most people it is very challenging. Use natural skin care products as well. These will be found on the web and can provide you with the most fundamentally solid way of treating skin in a natural way. Have an arsenal of good quality natural skin care products can give your body what it needs to fight off bacteria and to heal. I liked your post. Really it was fully of my interest. Thank you.

@priya - totally! Recently met my girlfriend, and did not have time for foundation. Now she has never seen me w/o makeup. She was like this is the best color match

That's the best compliment I have ever received on my skin.

skin is clearer, smoother. pores are tighter. foundation goes on much more smoothly...

Hi, I have normal/combination skin, and am 34 years of age. No acne since I entered my 30's. what regimen would you recommend?Is the retinol and AHA treatments at night for acne? Would you recommend the lactic acid and glycolic acid peels for me?
