Chemical exfoliants. I use a BHA in the morning and an AHA in the evening. And every other day (or two) I like to use a physical exfoliant in the shower like a scrub or washcloth. One of the best things for younger looking skin. Aside from a prescription or procedure, of course.

Exfoliators and night creams: I love feeling my skin soft and souple in the morning.
And of course not to forget masks with glicolic acid!

Natural oils. I use them to remove makeup, cleanse, and moisturize. I began using them about 1 1/2 years ago, and at 40, my skin has never looked or felt better!

Cleansers! I have oily skin so I love it when my skin feels squeaky clean! Exfoliator is a close second, I like both exfoliating masks and scrubs, the most important thing is that I can actually feel them working (lots of scrubbing beads or high fruit acid content) and they can’t lather or be oily!

Cream or balm cleansers – nothing more luxurious than the balm or cream turning into a rich oil on your face while being massaged into the skin!

(1) My Paula’s Choice Weekly Resurfacing Treatment. It has 10% AHA and after I use it, my skin looks so smooth and soft.
(2) Masks of all kinds. I find them so relaxing.
(3) I recently got a Clairsonic Mia 2 and so far I like using it.

I second the Paula’s Choice Weekly Resurfacing Treatment – 10% AHA. Just ordered this a week or so ago. Also love Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator for my dry skin. I use this during the day and my skin looks so soft and smooth under my makeup. It has a tacky feeling which I do not mind. I saw this advertised in a magazine and then read the reviews online at MUA. Also use the Boots No. 7 wipes to remove makeup. These are located at Target.

I love masks, especially clay ones. I used to have an obsession with those peel-off ones, but I don’t feel like they do much for my skin. Clay masks, to me, certainly feel and look like they are changing my skin for the better. In fact, I think I’ll do one tonight.

I rarely take the time for masks. Exfoliators are easy to keep in the shower, and serums have become a part of my morning and nighttime ritual.

In particular – I love the Shiseido cleansers, the name of the one I like best escapes me but is in a white tube with red writing on it and has little red microbeads in it. It’s for dry skin – which my skin isn’t, but I find it to be super soothing and love that.
Moisturizers – because they make my skin glow and feel nice
My favorite combo lately has been the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum mixed together with the Youth Activating Oil. OMG. The combination not only makes me skin feel moisturized and leaves it glowing and happy lookin, but it smells DIVINE.

-Bioderma to take off the day’s makeup
-Cold water on a soft washcloth before bed and after to invigorate, lightly exfoliate and feel fresh
-Lancome Renergie Eye Cream- amazing stuff!

I have really sensitive and oily skin. I don’t play with too many products for treatment and keep to the same two foundations all year, even in different shades.

Sun Putty.

Great daily skin care and SPF 30 protection.

No blemishes or brown spots since I’ve been using it for 3 months now….
