Please chose the major ingredients in your face products,  meaning the ingredients being marketed to you on the packaging and not every ingredient included.  You can choose more than one as our  Serum/Day cream/Night cream may contain a different anti-aging ingredient.  Also we rotate in/out products during certain periods.  

Please write a sentence letting us know which ingredient works best for you.

Thanks for playing.

Retinol works best for me.  Anti-aging care and also helps with my acne.

Normal to dry skin here - no acne - few fine lines - not reactive.  Retinol and even a mild Retin-A have a brightening, smoothing effect on me.  I often use these in combination with AHAs.

Interesting poll, Eurodivas!

I use Peter Thomas Roth products which are chock full of actives. I also combine them with Reviva ALA/C Ester/DMAE cream for my neck. I don't know which specific ingredients are working for me. :) But I like the results.

This will be a very informative topic!

Daily, I probably use nothing anti-aging.  Unless the Olay Pro X face brush counts for more than exfoliating cleansing?  

But I have in my drawer:

Vit C powder from Philosopy.  Their Hope in a Bottle cream was too much for me, and I was mixing the 2 together.  Now I forget to use it.

DMAE from Derma E.   Hate, hate, hate the smell.   :-X  I try it again at 6 months intervals, and Nope!

About once a week I used to use the aspirin mask which is Salicylic acid, I guess.  Now I rely on the Olay brush for mild exfoliating.   I traditionally use the Neutragena toner with the same ingredient, and still like it when I see a blemish coming on.

I have tried a CoEnzyme Q10 toner from DHC but did not quite finish it, as the scent was not pleasant (though it dissipated quickly) and felt a bit tacky on the skin.

Essential Oils - I have rose water, jojoba oil, plus an oil and a cream with Tea Tree oil.

Since moving to FL I have been afraid to use Retinol, as they warn about sun damage on the thinner skin.  Seems like a downward spiral to me - thin skin, more sunscreen, more damage, more acids needed, more damage ----    I'd rather maintain my skin's natural protections.

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.

Hi Tupelo,

I need to look into this brand a bit more.  I have only heard good things about it.  Will need to check and see if it is sold here.

In warm weather, at least once a week, M2 Skin Refinish is the single most helpful item. With malic and mandelic acid (the old MaMa Lotion) it exfoliates and evens my skin tone beautifully. Now, with very dry weather and skin that reflects it, I find that I need less exfoliation and more moisturizing. So just moisturizer is my #1 need right now.

I am presently using a serum with vitamins C and E and another with hyaluronic acid at night and that seems to still be helping maintain even skin tone.

I love what peptides do for my skin. I feel they help to smooth my crows feet.

Hi BettyBoop,

I have updated the poll to include Peptides.  This is what I meant by Gene/Cell technology :lol:.  I hope it is clearer now.  

I have tried about 3 creams with this technology and they all irritated my skin causing strong hyper-pigmentation.

  • Olay Regenerist
  • Avon Anew
  • Biotherm SkinVivo
    I do not know why my skin reacts so violently.

Ah, you forgot Niacin, which is currently one of my favorites. :)

I use tretinoin, Paula's Choice  8% AHA, Nia24 Skin-Strengthening Complex, and MUAC Anti-Aging Eye Cream (which has a ton of stuff in it).

Also sunscreen-- Eucerin Daily for sensitive skin spf 30-- one of the few my face can tolerate.

And my "miracle" is yoga (daily, or very nearly daily).

At night I apply SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic followed a few minutes later by their Hydrating B5 Gel (which is like a serum). I do these at night because I've read that sunlight wipes out vit. C and I want the most healing to happen at night.

I rotate my products depending on the daily issue!  Retina- micro keeps my skin clear--but the miracle is really getting enough sleep and not dtinking wine every night!  I think exercising and not eating a lot of sugar helps a lot as well.

Sorry Veuve about the Niacin.  I am not very familiar about this one so it did not ring any bells.

Great poll!

My routine includes:

  • Elta MD UV Shield 45 sunscreen in the morning -- and whatever incidental SPF I get from Jane Iredale Dream Tint and/or PurePressed Powder.
  • Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel at night over freshly-washed skin. I don't have acne, but this combo of fruit acids completely cleared out my congested pores.
  • Retin-A Micro about a half hour after I apply the AHA/BHA.
  • Reviva Labs DMAE Alpha Lipoic Acid Ester C eye serum (which I apply to my eyelids to reduce crepiness) and a thicker cream made of the same ingredients on my neck before bed (also by Reviva labs)
