As much as we hate when men on the streets go fooii..fooiiio… or complement
on our looks, let’s face it, once we are past our thirties and we start to see
that rarely happening then we start wondering… uhm! Everybody wants to
look their best and every woman wants to look younger than their age. I
started using anti aging serum about a year ago and I’ve used many different
ones from Oil of Olay to the ridiculously expensive ones like Skinmedica anti
aging serum. Even though I have a pretty nice skin I have combination
skin which means that I’ve been dealing with blackheads and enlarged pores,
mostly on my nose for most of my adult life and if your skin is like mine and
you use serum plus anti aging night cream then you know that it’ll only get
worse! I have found a very simple and common sense solution to cure this
problem for once and for all while at the same time I use my creams more
smartly. I simply don’t use cream on my nose, not at nights not during
the day (listen, your nose will not get wrinkly anyway). The only product
I use on my entire face is sunblock. I’ve been implementing this for the
past six months and my skin is as clean as a baby’s. I’ve noticed that my
creams last longer now since I end up using less. I also put my night
creams on early, if I’m not going out at night, so they’ll work for a longer
For night I use.
Givenchy VAX’IN serum and it’s not bad, but I’m really looking forward to start
using Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 of which I’ve heard wonders.
On top I use Shiseido Bio-Performance super restoring cream for the
night. It’s a bit more oily than I like. I prefer SkinMedica Dermal
Repair Cream which is smoother and the skin absorbs it much more quickly.
I have an obsession with my eye area. I think that’s where age shows the
most. My eye area is hyper sensitive so I wasn’t able to use retinol
products until I tried RoC Retinol correction SENSITIVE eye cream and it’s the
one that I like the most so far.
I use Kiehl’s Midnight recovery concentrate for my neck and decollate. I
also use it on my hands before bed and I love how soft and better my hands look.
For the day.
I apply a bit of Givenchy VAX’IN serum only where I really need it.

SkinMedica Redness Relief CalmPlex.
And Shiseido Sun Protection Lotion 50+ face and body. I love the liquid
consistency of this.
