WHAT ARE YOUR PROVEN TIPS/ANTI-AGING SKIN CARE REGIMEN?
« on: October 19, 2012, 03:51:19 PM »
I started to begin my Anti-aging regimen when I was in my mid 20s, but it was when I turned 30 that I truly began taking anti-aging regimen more seriously.  I believe anti-aging skin regimen can help lessen the damage caused by aging, lifestyle, and environment.  It's easiest to prevent the damage than it is to try to undo damage later.  Diet, genetics and lifestyle all play a role in how fast the skin ages. While nothing can stop the aging process, there are ways to prevent or delay the appearance of skin aging that do not require plastic surgery.  So even if you don't see the signs of aging yet, there is no reason that you have to wait until you're older to start an anti-aging skin regimen.  Here are some of my tips and my tried and tested anti-aging skin care regimen:

1.   DIET:  I try to eat only fish, chicken breast, 5 servings of veggies and fruits a day.  I drink at least 8 glasses of water.  (Ive always been very conscious of the food I eat as Ive been a flexitarian/semi-vegetarian for almost 14 years now.)

2.   Avoid sunlight and wear sunscreen all the time even when youre at home.

3.   Sleep at least 7-8 hours a day.

4.   ANTI-AGING SKIN CARE REGIMEN: Wash, cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate (once a week)

>Night time: Kyoto Premium Whitening soap, Hada Labo Super Hylauronic Acid Lotion, Retin-A .05% cream, Talika Eye Cream, Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream.

>Day time: Kyoto Whitening Soap, Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Lotion, Talika Instant Beauty Serum, Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream SPF 15, Lancme BienFait Total UV Eye Treatment Cream.

>I exfoliate once a week with Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish.

5.   ANTI-AGING SUPPLEMENTS:  DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) 100 mg, Ester C 1000 mg, ALA 300 mg, NeoCell Collagen +C Type I & III 6000 mg. Ive recently started ph338 gluta (my current holy grail and will try to use it forever!!)

Please share your tips and your own anti-aging skin care regimen.   :D :-*

Hi sis technicolor! That's great!  20s is the best time to start your anti-aging regimen... If i could turn back the clock, i would've started during my early 20s as well. I agree, Koreans do have radiant, luminous, and ageless skin. By the way, where do you go for your Korean face and body massage?  :)

I'm in my mid-twenties too and I've only jut started taking my skincare regimen seriously, so I can't say my method is *proven*

 

DAY:

1. Cleanse with Pond's facial wash

2. Moisturize with Khiel's ultra facial moisturizer SPF 15

3. Optional face base: tude House sun BB cream SPF 50 (I actually skip my Khiel's if I put on bb cream, bad I know)
 
Yes, sunscreen is THE most important anti-aging product out there, so I'm trying to be religious about putting it on. Even indoors. I wash it off at night though because SPF can clog pores. I'm looking for a day lotion to replace my Khiel's actually, because it has parabens and is only SPF 15. Anyone have any recommendations? At least SPF 30?
 

NIGHT:

1. If needed: Makeup remover Muji gentle cleansing oil

2. Cleanse with Pond's facial wash

3. If needed: Tone with Dickinsons witch hazel toner (will switch to an alcohol-free one when I turn 30)

4. Moisturize face and body with Nivea Baby smoothy cream
5. Eye care with L'Oreal revitalift eye cream
6. Face mask (tude House, Tony Moly, Snoe, whatever's handy) 1-2x/week

7. Exfoliate with Cetaphil and a soft face towel 1-2x/week
 
Serums are the next most important thing after sun protection. Women in their twenties should go for serums with antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E. For those in their thirties, serums with retinol are in order. I'm actually looking for a good one that is not too pricey, any recommendations?
 

ALSO:

1. Never forget the neck and hands. Even with a fabulous face, these will bear the tell-tale signs of aging. They need moisturizer and sunblock too!
2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! I try to always have a glass or bottle of water beside me. Moisturizers won't work if I'm dehydrated.
3. Get enough sleep at the right time. At least 6 hours straight, like 10pm-4am. In my profession this isn't possible, which is why I'm taking steps to delay the signs of aging.

That's great to hear sissies! Thanks for sharing! Sis, ilovejdy, another proven anti-aging tip starts from within... meaning eating more foods that will naturally give you superior anti-aging benefits that are medically proven and tested such as:

1. Eating foods rich in omega 3 like salmon, mackerel, tuna. This is one of the reasons why Japanese women have flawless skin and they really defy the aging process. They are into taking good care of their skin starting from birth and beyond. Part of their diet also is ingesting a lot of collagen-naturally that is...They buy daw packs of beef cartilage which they put in their soups like the ones found in bulalo because it is rich in collagen daw.

2. Eating lots of citruses, berries, and veggies- These are all packed with powerful antioxidants that are Proven to prevent wrinkles and age spots and definitely give you glowing pimple-free skin. I make sure that i have two servings of fruit a day... Having fruit as a part of my diet, i Never had a single breakout since!

Hi sis egypt! Congrats! You're on the right track with your anti-aging regimen. I'm using Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream SPF14 UVA/UVB as my day cream, but I'm contemplating on using a more potent sunblock like Biore UV Bright Face Milk SPF 50+ PA+++, this costs around 550 (exclusive of shipping) sold at multiply shops...I've heard great reviews about it from here and abroad. As for retinol, I use over-the-counter Retin-A 0.5% cream, which is relatively cheaper than other brands and yet very effective.  ;)

im 27 years old and well, I just keep a normal CLEANSE-EXFOLIATE(not every day tho)-MOISTURIZE routine, I skip TONING hehe, i know I am bad :P haven't found a good toner yet for me.

I use celeteque to cleanse, moisturize my face, and nivea too, also some HNN products coz I wanna try "natural remedies" ..I would like to try OTE soon too :)

 I have been a vegetarian for more than 10yrs and I guess this helps making me look healthy and glowing (not to mention someone told me i still look the same since highschool, haha yeah right). Detoxifying once in a while also helps, like liver flush, gall bladder flushs, etc. also, YOGA exercises helps tone the muscles, even sa face, and actually has many internal benefits as well..it caters to all ages..pag gym kasi, mejo kelangan hinay hinay ka na when you reach a certain age, otherwise ma-injury ka pa..also,meditation and/or relaxation also helps clear the mind and keeps you in peace :) coz even if how many layers of anti-aging creams you put on your face and body but magulo isip mo or stressed out ka, it'll really show sa face and skin mo, diba? maybe not many will like meditation, basta the point is we have to find time for ourselves to relax, unwind and clear the mind :)

so apart from eating the right foods and applying the right creams and serums, kelangan may exercise talaga na kasama and relaxation..para balanced lahat and covered all areas

Sis ilovejdy, your welcome! Masarap talaga ang feeling if people mistaken me that I'm in my mid 20s when in fact, I'm already in my late 30s...There were two instanceswhen the jeepney dispatcher asked me if i was a student. I was especially flattered when a college student asked me if I was single...sympre sabay pakita ako ng wedding ring, tapos sabi ko, "Iho pwde na kitang maging anak!" ;D ;D So i guess my anti-aging regimen works!

Sis momentum, one of my frustrations is being a vegetarian but since I have chronically low HGB count, so I really can't, otherwise I'll end up being anemic again. I totally agree with you, exercise is truly a crucial part of an anti-aging regimen and yoga is perfect because the benefits are not only focused on the physical aspect per se but the whole sense of well being.

Me naman, since i am a resident of Baguio, when I am free, I'd always walk up and down Session Road. In the mornings naman, I usually walk the dogs. I think anything called exercise....I hate doing.  ;D So i just do what i enjoy most which is walking.

Thanks for the recs sis! Oh my, I do see a lot of good reviews on Biore. I wonder if it can double as a moisturizer na, because I hate having to layer stuff on my face (feels hot and heavy, and not in the good way!). Will check those products out, thanks. :)

Sis egypt, here's a link a found about Biore Bright Face Milk... http://www.ratzillacosme.com/2009/biore-uv-bright-face-milk/. I think it has dual purpose, serves as a sunblock and a primer as well. According to the reviews, it is easily absorbed and lightweight naman, so you won't have to worry about feeling hot and heavy.

Sis innocent_beauty, thanks for sharing your age defying experience. ;) I agree, tretinoin works wonders to the skin talaga. Highly recommended by well-known dermatologists to lighten dark spots, increase collagen production, diminish fine lines and wrinkles. This is truly an anti-aging staple for every woman.

Sis ilovejdy, I'm pretty sure you're doing great with your anti-aging regimen, minsan kasi trial and error when it comes to anti-aging creams pero when you've found what really works for you, then stick with it. Kung baga sa vitamins kung hiyang mo na, wag mo ng palitan. It's also important to remember to always laugh everyday. I guess it's one of my best kept secrets din hehe. :D Que sehodang magkaroon ako ng laugh lines. ;D ;D ;D Sabi nga nila it takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, so in other words be happy, smile :)

You know what, even though the spa is just across my home, i have never tried stepping there either to have a massage or for any facial treatment whatsoever...Siguro pwde sa akin yung tipong Thai massage lang like stretching. I'm just the type of person kasi who's not comfortable with other people touching my body or skin, I don't know why pero I don't feel relaxed. Pero massage is proven effective to increase blood circulation, stress relief, and of course relaxation. So if you feel that this works for you, feel free to do so.  ;)

Hi sis Cocoyow! Tretinoin is a cream in a tube. It is a vitamin A derivative which is actually used to treat acne but has been proven to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and mottled skin discoloration, and to make rough facial skin feel smoother. Tretinoin increases skin-cell turnover, thus making your skin more supple and youthful. You can buy this over the counter with brands like Retin-A, STIEVA-A, and Retacnyl. It also comes in different strengths, 0.025%, 0.05%,  0.1% depending on your needs.
