I've been loving hyralauric acid, no7 do a lovely serum and I've definitely noticed my skin feeling softer, plumper and Im sure there are less lines too.

Don't smoke, no excessive drinking, never sunbathe or use tanning machines. Moisturise

SPF and Skin+me. Use the link to try a month for just 3.50 p&p

www.skinandme.com/?promocode=LAURENS5YP3

I've been using skin+me for two years now and my skin looks amazing even if I do say so myself! I think it's the Tretinoin. I use it daily at night and in the day I just use Garniers vitamin c serum and Ambre solaire SPF 50. I sometimes use Cerave moisturising cream at night too but I have oily skin so usually just use my skin and me doser. The customer care with them has been great and you can stop, delay or pause your subscription at anytime really easily online.

Tret - increases cell turnover

I use Dermatica as I find they use better dosages and it works out cheaper for me with the bottle style. I've been using it for a year and a half. If you want to try it

I also think hydration is key. Depending on how oily/dry you are what you need will be different but glowing skin is hydrated skin.

I like a serum in the morning, either a vitamin c such as the Oskia capsules or the beauty pie youth bomb

A good Spf that suits your skin

Then I find Erborian CC cream great as a Base/foundation. It's really light but gives a bit of coverage.

Exfoliate regularly and find a good moisturiser that works for you, also nip and fabs no needle fix face serum.

Water, sleep, hot yoga, genetics. No fags, booze, junk. Simple skincare routine - a good quality oil, moisturiser, exfoliation.

For those who used Tretonin (Retin A) - how do you use it etc?

Not sure I want to do a subscription service with Dermatica.

Genetics! I do nothing special and I've always had nice skin. And suncream. I don't think fancy creams work. Good diet and not smoking would help I guess.

Sleep definitely makes a massive difference though

Don't go jumping straight into tret.

Use retinol to build your skin barrier.

Chemical peel once a week (I use one from the Ordinary)

No physical exfoliation.

Moisturise followed by a face oil at night.

I use 6 times a week. I like 0.05 best. I did go to 0.1 but it made my skin need so much moisturising it was getting annoying. I notice good impact from 0.05 so I went back down to that.

@jewishmum - I always use Retinol approx 2-3 times a week.

Good to know about no exfoliator and to use moisturiser and facial oil. I do have a chemical peel but only used twice I think.

@BryceQuinlanTheFirst - I'll probably do the same level as you.

Sadly adding menopause into the mix (I take magnesium to help with that) though I sleep fairly well sometimes it isn't great!

Have been upping the water intake recently. I do have booze occasionally but can go 2-3 weeks without it easily. Have been trying to wean myself off crisps/chocolate which has helped. Never have junk food (McDs) anyway.

My skincare routine has always been good but simple - I don't believe or bother with expensive brands as I don't think they do much!

Genetics is good on my mum's side.

I had no idea using exfoliator would age my skin. I will stop using it

I can't imagine your skin looking that bad at 25 anyway. I guess preventive measures at best which you seem to be doing. Suncream, sleep etc.

I think 25 is a good age to start. I started around then with looking after my skin. Prevention is better than cure but also tretinoin has a cumulative effect so I can only imagine if you started now your skin would look amazing as you aged or rather didn't! It is strong as others have said. That's why I really like Skin +Me as it slowly increases in strength.

Tretinion started at about age 20 with high SPF.
