Ride or die evening skincare products for mature skin.

March 24, 2020

My current 'ride or die' evening skincare product must-haves. Essential potent active ingredients, essential for improved health and reversing the signs of premature ageing for mature skin.

 

 

 

I trial a lot of skincare that is targeted at us over 40's. Each week I am sent something new. I trial everything for at least 3 weeks, so I can confidently provide feedback on what, in my opinion, works for mature skin. In the video below are some of my current fave products.

 

Why are these my current favourite

evening skincare products?

 

a) They work. And do what they say they will do

b) They are clean. And not bulked up with cheap fillers

c) They are packed with must-have ingredients essential for mature skin.

 

Now when I say essential for mature skin, these ingredients are clinically proven to support the health, reverse signs of sun damage and premature ageing, rebuild the skin's delicate mantle, and allow the healthy bacteria, your microbiome, that skin needs to heal itself.

It's the A, B, C and HA plus potent plant oils essential for general skin health and nutrition.   

 

Vitamin A (Retinol)

Vitamin B3 (Niacinimide + B5)

Vitamin C (not ascorbic acid)

HA Hyaluronic Acid

 

While some may debate the need for face oils, I’m addicted. High performance, good quality medicinal grade plant oils give instant radiance to your skin.

Let me set the record straight on one thing before we dive into the video and products.


You'll notice I leave the Vitamin A component out of my routine at the moment. Although Retinol is one of the only scientifically proven ingredients to significantly reverse the signs of premature ageing, it must be managed carefully. I am not a skin scientist or Dermatologist, so I find it irresponsible of me to talk matter of factly about Retinol (and to be honest find it totally irresponsible that so many unqualified people recommend it). Yes you need Vitamin A aka Retinol. By the time you hit ages over 40, the only Retinol worth really investing in is a product that needs to be carefully managed by an expert. Not a Beauty Therapist, a medical expert. A Registered Nurse, Paramedical Aesthetician, Skin Scientist or Dermatologist. And even then, many of these folks don't properly supervise their patients. I can't tell you how many women I meet, with red, dry flakey irritated skin and I know instantly they've been on the Vitamin A Retinol called "Retrieve", with improper advice and no supervision. Rant over! Tread carefully. And if you want a carefully managed routine that includes prescription Vitamin A Retinol, please contact Dr Michele Squires at Qr8.
