ANTI-AGING SKINCARE ROUTINE
hi everyone I’m Beth with 50-plus Beauty and I’m really excited to be here with you today to show you my p.m. and my a.m. skincare many of you saw my cure ology video and this is a look at the Curie ology set and I’ll link that video below because I did show you how to use that whole set I really love that because the cure ology preparation is prepared by dermatologists and it contains medical grade skincare products that are very good for our skin including retin-a which I really do appreciate but I don’t really use the whole charata G set necessarily in my skincare and you all were asking for me to show you my p.
m. and my a.m. skincare so I’m going to do that I’m going to do the p.m. in just a moment but first I’m going to show you my PJs and I can’t link these because these are old but these are the types of PJs that I really prefer I like PJs where I can wear a broad some of them are cute that are very very bare but to me you need to wear a bra because you want to keep the girls in place and I have done that for years and it has really really helped but anyway that is beside the point let me get into my p.
m. skincare and here it is this is my a.m. flow this is my am and my p.m. skincare and I just keep it in a little cubby here a little box and I’m use these which this looks very grubby sorry I use these candleholders from Bed Bath & Beyond to put in some of the things there here are my PM products here are my am products and i will be showing you exactly how i use these things here are some skincare masks which I try to use once a week here is my clinic astringent which I’ll be showing you in just a moment I guess I’ll just show you what I use for my key instead here and here are the things that I use here we go and then here is my PM skincare right here this is a little black candle holder from Bed Bath & Beyond and then here are the cleansers that I kind of go between here is the Cetaphil which I have used for years and then here is the Clean Sweep which I actually get in the cure ology set each month it’s been a nice gentle cleanser as far as I can tell but in the last few days I’ve decided to go back to my derma e anti-wrinkle cleanser because it has vitamin A and glycolic acid and I think it’ll be nice to kind of scruffa off the dead skin cells on my face okay let’s go ahead and I’ll show you my p.
m. skincare the first thing I use is this covergirl clean makeup remover for eyes and lips I don’t use it for lips but I use it on my eyes here comes looking like a raccoon there we go see how great that gets the mascara off and I have tried probably five other makeup removers and this is absolutely the best it’s like 398 at Walmart for those of you who watched my channel you know that I really just like to use inexpensive products wherever possible I mean why waste money if you can get good results I just use a little Kleenex to get that off and sometimes after the Kleenex I’ll use this equate makeup remover which does work very well – these are also from Walmart I think oil of olay has the the main brand and then Walmart has the equate brand but I think they work just beautifully so it gives all that eye makeup off now the second thing I use is a cleanser and again I use one of these three I’m going to go ahead and use the derma e today and I buy these cheap little washcloths from Walmart and I’ll tell you more about them in my am video do a couple spritzes of that and then I just go ahead and try to get all that makeup off as well as possible and it is hard get to make a bob but these washcloths do a very good job of it and see look at all that makeup yep then I take the other side and then we just scruffa lever ething off and I’m pretty tough on my face I just really think it helps to use a little bit of strength in removing that makeup there we go looks bad but don’t worry I’ve still got makeup on my skin but I absolutely love this Clinique clarifying lotion number four and I’ve done a video about that in the past this stuff is absolutely gold it truly is exfoliating and I think it has anti-aging properties and I just take one of these little cotton rounds down here and I have the cotton rounds and a little candle holder to just take a little bit of gist looks like that and then I just put it all over my face and you know for years I had heard that toners really weren’t very useful and then I saw this beautiful model who it’s like 80 she’s fabulously beautiful and she swears by this Clinique clarifying lotion number four and I’m almost out as you can see and I will be buying some more I will never be without this there we go a little bit more makeup there I’ll go ahead and use it a little more on the other side just to try to get my skin as clean as possible it’s important to clean your skin at night it doesn’t really take long to do this process in the morning or the evening I have quite a few items that I use but it takes maybe five minutes in the evening something like that okay next I’m going to apply my hormones and I go into this more in my a.
m. skincare so I won’t really mention these to you you’ll learn that in just a few minutes but this is my estrogen cream and it has been proven to thicken skin I use about 1/2 a teaspoon of estrogen cream there on my neck and I do have a video on my channel about the use of these creams and I will share that link below there’s the progesterone cream and used about quarter teaspoon of that and I’m not very scientific about the amount I tried to use measuring spoons with this that it just didn’t work out very well okay there are the hormone creams and now I’m going to get into my p.
m. skincare and first I use this syrupy p.m. facial moisturizing lotion and it has Sarah – nice cinnamon and hyaluronic acid and I just use three spritzes of that and then I use my serology preparation and most importantly to me this contains my Tretton Owen or red and a really really like this and it contains Tran Tran synapse kick acid though I didn’t say that right I’ll put that below but that lightens brown spots and I truly believe that that works and I actually just use one big splotch of that and then I just mix it together I’ve noticed that when I use more than one pump of that cure ology I really do start to peel again and my skin gets very red and inflamed and I also put it on my eyelids and I bring it down on my neck sometimes if my neck starts to get a little too red though I’ll just use the therapy on my neck and just use the cure ology preparation on my face and then I just also put it on the backs of my hands because you should always keep the backs of your hands to get skin care as well but the last step is to use this Theresa flash serum and this is wonderful and I have a video on my channel which I’ll link below about that and I just run that along there once or twice it’s kind of like eyeliner but within a couple weeks you will grow much longer lashes and I have just started a test of using it on my brows it’s only like $12 so I feel like I can be kind of generous with using it some of the lash theorems are over $100 my husband is shooting this for me which I appreciate and I’m certainly appreciate it I’m not into the hundred dollar lash theorems yep he says yeah he will never talk on my videos but he did shake his head which is an improvement I think I’m about out of this it’s good to know okay that is a look at my PM skincare i’ll go to bed tonight and i’ll see you in the morning okay this is the next morning and i’m going to be showing you my a.
m. skincare and again i use this little bin full of stuff and it is very full of stuff but I’ll show you ideas for my skincare this was again my evening skincare that this is the loop I abhor mine morning skincare and this is of course a Bed Bath & Beyond candleholder least there’s some use for all of those candle holders I love those candles okay this is my a.
m. skincare and it also should include the cleanser and normally what I do is I use the cleanser in the shower and I have kind of a little gizmo that I put on the wall I’ll show you that right now my little shower caddy and I keep my skincare my cleanser here in this part marks lotion they had pre-printed labels those are closest they had was election but that is actually my cleanser there’s the shower gel conditioner shampoo I love this thing and razor soap and then over here is what I use on my body I absolutely love these scruffy gloves these are Allen’s these are mine and then over here I have a little waist hand to kind of hide the mess and in this I have the morning lotion that I use after every shower and this is the Alpha skincare 12 percent hydroxy or glycolic acid and I really like that I learned about that on Angie of cotton flashy but coincidentally I had used this for years and it is absolutely great to produce good body skin and in here I also have my purple shampoo and conditioner for those days where I look pretty brassy I have this shaving gel for the days I want to shave and then I have an extra conditioner and I love this conditioner I’ve used are for long time it’s the macadamia natural oil deep hair repair mask and here is what I use to dry brush my skin in the morning I do this before I take a shower it’s very scruffy and rough and I just brush my body real quickly before you shower and actually in that lotion holder in the shower I have Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser which I’ve used for years however I am starting to use a different skin which I really like and this is the derma e anti-wrinkle cleanser that had me at hello anti-wrinkle and it has vitamin A and glycolic acid and it scruffles off those dead skin cells really like that so I’ll go ahead and show you how I use them there we go just put a couple of little dots of that on there wet wash rag and these wash bearings I actually did a video about them you get like 12 of them from Walmart maybe 18 for like three dollars in 88 cents and it really cleans off your skin it’s very exfoliating because it’s rough and cheap kind of like a prison wash pot and see I’m getting a little bit of makeup off I have to admit I’m not totally perfect at night then I turn it over that’s what I’ve gotten off there then I turn it over and I just do it one more time just to get as much of everything off my skin as I can so that’s how that works then I just go down here I forgot my towel better get that okay here’s my towel and I actually just use a bathtub because look over there those are my towel racks and they have pretty talents and my husband gets a little mad at me because I’m not telling my shell it’s sort of like beauty first but anyway I just grabbed this towel out of my closet because I haven’t hung in my closet right there now I get into my morning skincare and I use basically this CeraVe AM facial moisturizing lotion and this is absolutely wonderful this has ceramides which really helps the skins barrier it has a niacinamide to brighten the skin and it has hyaluronic acid which is a great moisturizer and also it has a plus 30 SPF sunblock I just do three of those like that and then we go ahead to save time and I use my main sunblock along with it and I’ve been using this Australian gold mineral lotion non-greasy SPF 50 really like this it plays well with my retin-a and that’s because is a physical barrier sunblock so you just take that rub it together then I put this all over my face and it is a cookie I mean I really don’t like how cookie it is very very geeky and I even put it on my eyelids because their eyelids need to be protected from the Sun and I bring it down here on my neck and on the backs of my hands I’ll do a little bit more here maybe one more spritz of each you know I mostly stay in because we’re sheltering in right now but I have big windows in my kitchen in the Sun can come right through there so that’s the backs of my hands just to rub that cream all in it’s all over my eyebrows there we go oh oh I actually forgotten one of the most important things I do in the morning and that is my hormone cream and this is my progesterone cream and this is my estrogen cream and I have a video about my hormone creams and I will go ahead and link that for you below it’s funny I use these for medical reasons to deal with hot flashes from that kind of thing and I used to apply them on the inside of my arms you’re supposed to apply them like on the inside of your arms where your skin is thin or on your neck and I’ve read some research that said that estrogen and progesterone which is what this is that it thickens skin it actually is proven to thicken skin so I thought why not use it on my neck instead of my inner arms so I’ve been doing that and I’m doing a 30 day trial right now I take about that much of the progesterone cream it’s supposed to be a quarter of a teaspoon I put it all over my neck and I put it right here because I want my neck to stay firm and also these creams are potent here’s the estrogen cream because when I don’t use them I get my hot flashes back you’re supposed to use a half teaspoon of the estrogen and I actually took these creams to my OBGYN and he totally approved of them which really surprised me because you to make up creams on the internet much to spew gimmick but he looked at the dosages and everything on the creams and he said they’re just fine and actually creams are supposed to get into your bloodstream quicker than a lot of the other like the trophies and that kind of thing so there am all greasy now I take my syrupy vitamin C serum and I’ve just been using this maybe about a month but vitamin C is great it’s protective from the Sun because it helps fight free radicals so just put that all over my skin and over time vitamin C should help no out brown spots so it’s just very very good for your skin for a long time I didn’t have a vitamin C and I was glad to get that one now I also do my lashes this is my morning lash serum it’s a Teresa lash serum and you can see there it just has a little little oil on your type brush and just put that on there you’re supposed to use just one swipe pearl ash however this stuff is very inexpensive it’s like $12 for both the AM and PM version so I go ahead and use two swatches at that and then I take it and I just do this because I’m also doing my brows my brow tails I’m trying to grow them in and hopefully I’ll show you the results in 30 days or so this is a fabulous lash serum and I’ll link it below for you so that is my morning a.
m. skincare and what I do now is while I’m waiting for this stuff to sink in I go ahead and flat iron my hair and make it look a little more presentable because this is get out of bed hair well that was a look at my p.
m. in my a.m. skincare hope you all enjoyed seeing what I actually use and I have tried probably a hundred different products over the last three years on YouTube these are the products that at the current time I feel absolutely do the most for my skin and for those of you who follow my channel know I do use Botox I had a fat filler in my cheeks and some people would say oh well she’s had a bunch of work done well I have had work done but in terms of quality of your skin you can’t think that it is good skincare that really helps one have good skin good skin care and sunblock so anyway if you’re not a subscriber and you’re interested in all things anti-aging I hope you’ll click that little bell and subscribe and or give this video a thumbs up and share it with a friend okay I always like to leave you with a little thought for the day and of course I’m not in my camera room with my cards so I will just tell you about a wonderful audio book that I have been reading that I think you would love and in fact I recommended it to both of my sons and hopefully they will be reading it I love to listen to audiobooks I workout in the morning and it always helps me feel more positive to listen to a good positive audio book in the morning when I’m doing my weight workouts but it is by Mel Robbins and it is a best-seller and it is called the five-second rule and I’ll link it below and I won’t get into all the specifics of it but it is a wonderful book first she created the five-second rule out of her own experience at a time in her life when she was really depressed and could hardly get out of bed one night she saw a lift off where they said five four three two one blast off and she said tomorrow morning instead of Reed hitting the snooze alarm four times because I’m so depressed I’ll just say five four three two one blast off and get up and that’s what she did and then she realized a little by little that she could use this five-second rule five four three two one blast off to accomplish a lot of kind of seemingly difficult things in her life and not only does she share how the five-second will helped her she goes into all the science behind why this actually works and this is a phenomenal book and if you wrestle with little mini demons like overeating not exercising enough even thinking negative thoughts which is something I have been guilty of doing a little bit well kind of a lot bit in this kovat shelter-in-place time that we’re going I can tend to go negative but how I use it is when I have a negative thought about it I’ll say five four three two one and shift to a positive thought and little by little just like a muscle that you use your mind learns to shift from a negative thought to a positive and it becomes almost an automatic thing over time and I’m not totally there yet but I am working in that direction and it is just wonderful so anyway that was a look at my AM and PM skincare routine I would love for you to share their products that work for you down in the comments section because this is a community of women helping each other to look and feel their best take care and I’ll see you in my next video
