Good morning ladies! Since I’ve started my YouTube channel I’ve gotten several requests to share my skincare routine with you guys so in today’s post I’m going to take you through my morning and nighttime skincare regimen and along the way, I’ll be sharing 10 anti-aging skin care tips sure to help you look younger!
I do want to point out this post is NOT sponsored. I have done a ton of sponsored skincare posts in my 6 years of blogging which means I’ve had the opportunity to try all the latest and greatest skincare products on the market. The products I’m about to share with you are my personal favorites as of late and they do change every few months as I’m always trying new products. Some of the products I’ll be sharing with you I’ve been using for years and some for just a few a months, but one thing they all have in common is that I’ve seen real results from every single one of them! Be sure and check out my video and feel free to scroll down for an in-depth description of my TOP 10 SKINCARE SECRETS sure to take a few years off of your pretty face!

10 ANTI-AGING SKINCARE TIPS:
1.) APPLY VITAMIN C SERUM:
Vitamin C is a natural sunscreen and the more protection your face has from the sun the fewer wrinkles and sun spots you will get which will make you look younger no doubt! I’ve been using the vitamin c serum by L’Oreal for about 6 months now and I couldn’t be happier with it! My skin feels tighter and brighter after each usage and it works well under my make up.
2.) USE AN SPF:
I use Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Anti-Wrinkle Retinol Daily Face Moisturizer with SPF 30. This has amazing anti-aging products in it, but also has an SPF of 30 which I highly recommend using every single day! It works well under my makeup, it’s very thin and goes on smooth.
3.) APPLY PRIMER:
I apply my primer after my Vitamin C serum because it minimizes my pores and helps my foundation stay on all day long. I really love the primer by Smash Box called PHOTO FINISH and it works like a dream! On the days I forget to wear it I can totally tell, my foundation wears off and my face tends to get more oily throughout the day.
NIGHT TIME ROUTINE:
4.) CLEANSE TWICE:
I cleanse once to get my make-up off, use the towelettes listed in #5 and then once I’ve gotten all of my make up off I cleanse again so all of the amazing anti-aging ingredients can work wonders on my fresh and clean face. I’ve been using a cleanser by Mary Kay called TIMEWISE 3 IN 1 CLEANSER for over 8 years now and I love it! It’s a foaming cleanser which I love and it leaves my face feeling tighter and perfectly fresh and clean!
5.) USE MAKE-UP TOWELETTES:
After I cleanse the first time there is inevitably always makeup left on my face, especially mascara. I take these LIFE CHANGING makeup remover cleansing towelettes also by Neutrogena that I’ve been using for years now and they not only take off my mascara, but they do a great job of getting all the excess makeup off my cleanser left behind. Also, I just discovered these cute little travel ones which will fit perfectly in your travel makeup bag! Literally, I could not live without these!!
6.) APPLY RETIN-A:
If you only get one product from today’s list, get this one. It’s a game changer! I’ve been using it since I was in my mid-twenties and I’m so glad that I have! My face no doubt has fewer wrinkles, less dark spots, and just has overall better texture because of using Retin-a on a regular basis. I’ve heard Opera say it, I’ve heard several plastic surgeons and dermatologists say it: “If you only use one skincare product on your face let it be Retin-a.” Need I say more!? This is the only product on the list that is a prescription so you must get this from your dermatologist or esthetician. I use the .05% for a reference.
PRO TIP: USE RETINOL OIL IF RETIN-A SEEMS TO BE STRONG FOR YOUR FACE TO USE EVERYDAY. TRY USING IT EVERY OTHER NIGHT ON THE NIGHTS YOU AREN’T USING THE RETIN-A.
This is the reallygood stuff that will transform your skin, I saw less fine lines and wrinkles after only one week! It sinks into my skin really well and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. Because of the Retinol SA ingredient, I’ve been seeing less dark spots too and just have a smoother texture to my skin. I use this Retinol oil about 1-2 nights a week to give my face a break from the Retin-A listed above.
7.) APPLY AUGUSTINUS BADER:
Tons of celebrities swear by this buttery thick moisturizer and I’ll have to say I couldn’t agree more! There has been years of research done to develop this anti-aging lotion and I’m here to tell you it really works! I’ve been using it for about 6 months and I can really tell a difference, mainly on my smile lines and crows feet which have dramatically smoothed out since I’ve been using the magical lotion!
8.) USE TANNING SERUM:
I’ve been using Tan Luxe dropson my face and body for about a year now and I love them! You mix these self-tanning drops with your regular moisturizer and apply it to your face and body and it gives you the most gorgeous bronzing glow without streaking or looking orange! They have special drops for your face and your body and I recommend using both about 2-3 times a week.
9.) APPLY EYE CREAM:
I use Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream with Retinol SA. Some other eye creams I’ve tried make my eyes burn which is no good, this is very gentle yet effective and feels very nourishing under my eyes. I always apply this under my eye and on my eyelid, I also apply it all the way out past my temples.
10.) USE A WEEKLY HYDRATING MASK:
Since I use Retin-A on a regular basis my skin stays pretty dry so I love to use Colleen Rothschild’s Intense Hydrating Mask once a week. I leave it on for 20 minutes and my skin feels so refreshed and nourished when I take it off. Using a hydrating mask at least once a week will leave your skin with a youthful radiance!
