Youthful skin. Best procedures?

Recommended Posts

Ok im in my 30s and need a serious skin overhaul.

I want that youthful skin look back. i also have fine lines on forehead that need to be gone!

any less invasive facelifts that work? is botox still needed even after a good facelift?

whatever u have tried that works, let me know. thanks in advance! x

Oh i feel ya chick.. im 27 and have them around my eyes. When i smile i need to (hard to explain) bring my smile down so my eyes arent as wrinkly..

Drinking water is a big thing too.. i use rosehip oil too which i have heard is great.

My nana has amazing skin at 84 she uses nivea cream and has for about 40 years.. its thick but i use it at night... when i can remember

Noooooo stay away from Sculptra, Radiesse, Aquamid any of those semi/perm fillers.....

I would start with incorporating a Vit C & E cream in the morning and a Retinol (vit A) at night. Regular micros and peels to keep your skin in condition and when you're ready Botox as preventative

so you dont think a mini facelift is needed at this stage, Don?

i tried dysport before but would prefer less product so will go the botox..

should try the serums etc before considering a lift.. used to be so good with skincare in my 20s so this shouldnt have been the time to slack off :D

I definitely agree with Donatella on this one. A retinol cream may not seem like it's working straight away but if you keep using it for years, the results will be soooo good. I'm 24 and in a couple of weeks will be getting my first microdermabrasian/LED treatment and will aim to do it once a month (if I can keep affording it).

Medical grade glycolic acid peels are awesome too.

Thete are heaps of salon facials that I personally wouldn't waste time or money on. I'm all for the real high-performance stuff.

 I love Rationale Serums. I also use a Vitamin A Retinole 2 or 3 nights a week. I scrub my face in the shower bi-carb soda as a mask scrub once a week. It's the business!! I am always getting mistaken for being 10 years younger than my actual age. SUNSCREEN always face neck and decollatage. I pretty much will not show skin during the day.

Has anyone come across a sunscreen that is ok for acne prone skin? I've tried everything and have now resorted to wearing spf mineral foundation but where I live I need proper protection. I'm thinking of getting IPL resurfacing done

Wow! Rosehip oil! I read about it here in a few threads, started it 2 nights ago and already my skin is more dewy and smoother.

My skin is starting to age now at 35, especially since having a child.

I've also started up with Moo Goo Anti Aging because every other product they make is incredible. The texture and smell is beautiful.

Yep. I only use Moo Goo milk wash to cleanse, then I apply the oil (also Moo Goo), let it soak in, then my Moo Goo Udder Milk moisturiser. I tried mixing the oil into the moisturiser but feel it absorbs better on its own. I apply the anti aging in the morning and then Sunsense Daily Face tinted moisturiser. You would think with all this oil and moisturiser, plus SPF, I would break out, but quite the opposite, my pores have closed, my wrinkles have plumped and I'm dewy. I had an event last night and 3 people commented on my skin! 

 

p.s. Moo Goo! Jesus, you'd think I worked for them. Best product I have ever used. I think they should reconsider their brand image though. They are really quite elegant products underneath the quirky packaging. And the prices are amazing.
