help - im mid thirties and have dry sensitive skin, the only cream I use is the Nivea one in the blue pot, im now starting to notice fine lines :-( Can anyone recommend an anti-aging skincare routine for me?
Clinique Moisture Surge for very dry skin. I find that with very dry skin, which I definitely have (am 38), having a fabulous moisturiser suited to my skin makes me look younger (plumping up skin etc). I also use Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair serum which I think is miraculous. Not cheap but worth the investment I think.
The Olay Regenerist stuff is v good and often to be found on offer. Somebody on here recommended Superdrug's Vitamin E oil though and it is excellent for overnight use and only costs pennies too. The moisturiser is fine as well, for the price, but I don't like the eyecream. Will deffo continue to buy the oil.
I love Dermalogica's intensive moisture - is rich but not thick and has helped my sensitive post baby skin. Is around £20 for a small size but it lasts ages. I buy professional sizes via eBay - bought last one in June last year for £30 and still have half of it left. Is one of the original Dermalogica products - forget all the gimmicky Age smart stuff they do- this is the best.
My routine has sorted out my skin - Avene gel cleanser followed by La Roche Posay Cicaplast moisturiser. The moisturiser is fab - it's very soothing and moisturising but also antibacterial, so perfect for my dry but clogged skin. And after years of thinking daily exfoliation was key, I think simple decent cleansing works best for me, no scrubbing, no harsh chemicals.
